Real tanks run with x4 FO tactics slotted.
I have it in all four plus I stick it in my renown slots (I lied above). It's just that good.

Re: Sword Master and Focused Offense Tactic

Possible SM dots: EA, CoT, DI, PE

Back on topic: Don't slot FO. Ever.

Re: T4 Set Cost Reductions Next Patch

For those complaining, this was inevitable. As soon as they introduced vertical progression into a PvP game it was pretty much mandatory they followed the path of the live version (and countless other games) and create a catch-up system for newbies. The next step, btw, will be for them to eventually...

Re: XP - Population downfall again

You can expect the population to draw down in general as people who were only curious about the game move on to other things. It is the nature of the beast.

Re: Viability of 'Solo Pugging'?

I usually run solo with my various classes: SM, AM, SW, WL, Engie, WH, Chosen, Mara, Zealot and Magus. Generally speaking it is actually relatively easy to get good contribution (and bags) as a shield tank. I have also found it harder to get contribution as a mdps while rdps (and heals) is a mixed b...

Re: Disabling reviving inside a keep if outer door is tagged

I would be happily exchange rezzes into the keep for a mechanic that actually forces the attackers to not just blob up at the keep to win (which will have other side effects by the way). As described, this entire proposal is basically advocating for the main zones to be even more of a flip fest than...

Re: Disabling reviving inside a keep if outer door is tagged

The game has had several different rules over time for zone caps that have worked (or not) in varying degrees based on population. The "best" answer may be to have dynamic rules that trigger (or un-trigger) based on current populations. For example, at one one time you could make the Keep Lord harde...

Re: Disabling reviving inside a keep if outer door is tagged

Your proposals don't take into account what happens when there is 40-60% AAO. Basically with those odds and no rez inside the keep there will be no opposition. But maybe that is your actual goal to get the flips and get to Fort/City (which, to be fair, is now the point of the game and not the actual...

Re: Balancing Kotbs VS Chossen!

All I am getting out of this is how the first and second best tanks in the game (I'll let you guys argue which is which) are complaining about how they need to be even more firster and seconder best tanks in the game...

Re: Swordmaster viable as 2h or not so good.

Even in small scale the 2-hander SM is of questionable value. Yes they will do more damage than any variant of an S&B SM but to do so they are now neither a tank nor are they a dps. Meanwhile as a S&B you have an extra interrupt to go with your silence, knockdown and a mid-to-long-range punt to crea...
