TIL the number of skills you use determine how fun a class is...

It really depends. If there is a good fight S/B tanks can be fun. If there isnt much competition one way or the other a S/B tank is going to be pretty boring compared to everything else.

In the end you gotta remember 2 things:

1) Fun is subjective. Some people have fun going full deftard SnB and surviving being attacked by 10+ enemies. Some find it boring and prefer killing ****. Some people have fun using 5 skills on their class, some have fun using 30.

2) Fun is not the same as viable. Melee healing can be fun but it isn't viable. Deftard SnB Chosen can be fun but it isn't viable for a 6v6. Lol DPS Chosen can be fun but is not viable for large scale WBs. Etc, etc...

Only way OP can find out if SnB Chosen is fun, is if he plays one.

The ones who call snb boring are the scrubs who permanently have a noodle glued to their hand, and guess what, both mash the same amount of buttons snb is currently the highest sustain dmg atm until something gets buffed but ull need both snb and a 2hder for that rare occasion ull be running scs with people

Chosen is boring yes. KD punt match with the kotbs guard is the fun bit. BO is fun, but you lack the good punt. Punting people is fun. With BG punt is the only fun thing, the rest is tedium and ability glut.

IB is criminally fun to play in comparison. Kotbs is boring, and SM is fun because of wings of heaven.

It's not boring. It's easier, but that lets you focus on being a good tank, like floating guard, challenge, useful CC, etc. So if by "boring" you mean standing around spamming HTL, then no. If you mean "challenging" because you need to be a good tank + mechanic, then probably -- but I would say if "challenging" makes you bad at doing tank-y things, then it's probably not helping your team...

SnB is pretty boring, but also incredibly important. In a party, you tend to need two tanks for whatever you want to do. And with healers, are the only class that a party will absolutely need. But the mechanics is basically working out a way to get hit a lot and surviving.

To be fair, SnB tanks are always the first in any charge, so there's that, and actually do stuff in seiges. They also make the best warband leaders since they tend to have the best view of the battles.
