edit: I'm going to take a guess and say most people saying destro/order need tanks and healers are DPS soloers/PUGs.
Yep, the very same people all the time on both sides. Guildless, or still sitting in dead guilds with no plans at all on their progress. Just logging in, pressing L and expecting to see 2/2/2 and perfect morale drops on posterns from others.

"Tanks don't guard me"
"Healers don't ress me"
"Man people are clueless"

Chat is flooded with them.
Probably the best thing I’ve read on this forum since I started RoR.
Says the guy with one not even full RR player yet? Many have 4,5,6 8+ characters at RR80. Most of "plans of progress" have been completed other than holding YOUR hand in forts and cities.

Nobody likes to join a guild of "tools" because they have to, unless of course, you are a tool too.

Every time I log my magus/sorc, we lack healers, so I usually end up playing healer. I like to play tank a lot too, because not enough people know how/when to push forwards

Look at any guild recruitment on the forums or in discord. You'll find one thing that they all have in common: Guilds are always recruiting tanks and healers. To suggest they aren't "needed" or are equally plentiful to R/DPS is just being willfully ignorant (I imagine to justify rolling R/DPS, which is perfectly fine).

There is nothing more frustating than guarding or healing avarage lvl dps doing fluff dmg and not coworking with others in team (warband or scenario). So I understand that many main role tanks and healers log dps if they have no trusted and known friends to guard/heal online.

What really makes no sense is that as someone who mains a Zealot, I can’t even count the number of times I’ve had to spend the evening solo healing PUG WBs. I’m spamming /5 and /t4 offering healing to small groups, WBs, and even solo rDPS. Very, very rarely do I get a reply. If healers were that hard to come by, I wouldn’t have spent a single play session solo healing. It’s one of the reasons I ended up rolling my Shaman. I felt like he was a much more impactful solo healer.

this is a default response in many games that have such classes.

but it is true that destro often finds them selves badly lacking ranged dps, or more specifically good rdps.

sure if you dont have heals you are kinda **** and same with tanks but generally it seems easy enough to find these, with healers occasionally being in short supply.

also you will probably find many replying that way are dps themselves and are pissed and not being supported enough when they enter regular wbs. what the op says is fair thou, sieges are wildly different for each faction, order are able to put out tremendous firepower from or to the walls and destro rarely if ever match that and it would be nice to have more sorcs and magi to focus oil and pressure the walls like order does to us. but the default answer of tanks and heals is not surprising given those roles importance in the game and its also not exactly a bad shout to tell a new player that answer as those roles will always be in high demand, especially if they get good and demonstrate their skill in the role. but yes the reality is more complex than that.
