I feel compelled to point out that the whole "they have heavy armor" argument is meaningless when armor talismans and pots exist. Cloth classes can get to the armor cap quite easily (which is utterly insane imo).

Mind you that as stated in previous patch notes the check for what you are is not on gear anymore its on mastery points spent. Also to add that this topic is teetering on the edge of lock since its a balance proposal topic in a non balance subforum.
Lead dev does not mean I´m the best coder around, it just means I have taken on a management role for the devs.

Which dont even matter because you can spec def left mastery. Aka when you gona change sc ctiterias for tank from mastery spec into str/melee crits????

Those 2 only are the relevant stats to look at not mastery spec.

That is the only thing Id liked changed. I do think large parts of the community underrate 2handed tanks, but I just feel that nearly all 2-handed DPS metas (staying alive longer so you can do a bit more damage) is probably still a tank meta.

Also, I think most optimised 6-man groups would not trade a DPS for an off-tank, and would take 1 SnB 1 offtank over 2 SnB tanks.

Why?
Qonrad, the knave of Nagarythe, Ghost of the Garior.

Imperial, Myrmidia's Chosen, assumed command of General Aldo Dercius's crusade after the General was discovered to be grossly incompetent and had a penchant for the Lho sticks.

since its a balance proposal topic in a non balance subforum.
Though it has to be said that pushing proposals into and unmoderated (?) balance forum that seems to be dead (?) makes not a great difference to locking them straight away in the first place.

In this sense the sentence 'balance proposals go to the balance forum' seems to equal 'trash goes into the trash can', as both are propably never going to be looked at again (?).
