  • PJ, you know so much!

    By the way, for some reason it doesn’t play in Youtube although I am a subscriber to DDOcast there.

    Good job on this!

  • Our guild is currently running a Build-A-Tank contest (from our website):

    “The winners will be determined by the first person to reach “tank” stage for their build and then pass all the “tank trials”. These trials test your ability to be able to successfully tank the following raids:

    Vision, Elite
    ToD, Elite
    Chrono, EH
    Fall of Truth, EH

    I’d love to add in LOB EH, but we don’t run that enough to place it onto the list. However, it is an amazing test of character & player to tank this raid boss so if you want to try it, let me know !

    Once you believe your character is ready to try one of the raids, let us know and we’ll schedule one for you (or several if you’d like).

    It is also strongly recommended that you run the lower setting versions of the raids also in order to get the “feel” for how your character will work when running on the higher settings.

    Success is determined using the following criteria:

    – Holding aggro against caster/blitz/fury builds (we’ll bring our best, be ready!)
    – Placement and mob control
    – Healer feedback. How much of a beating did you take during the raid.
    – Overall feel of the completion (if you died 8 times, maybe not lol)”

    Currently we have two graduates and maybe another half dozen in progress – thanks for your show – too many people think tanks just have to have hitpoints and a dedicated healer.

  • Misstral and I are in the same guild, our guild leader has some great tips and resources for tank benchmarks. I’ll see if i can find them.

  • Moxie is awesome! It’s like a mix between root beer and Dr. Pepper, sorta.

  • I’ve always thought of it as sort of a flat root beer with angostura bitters, taste-wise.
