    Who is planning on playing the tank role in Pantheon as their main?

    I plan on playing the Warrior, what classes are other tanks planning on playing?

    I will be maining a tank as usual.  I typically always tank on a warrior as well, but I will be checking out each of them before making the final choice.  Probably warrior though lol

    Without doubt, I'll be tanking.  Unto the class, I don't yet know.  I played prot warrior in WoW from launch to 2009 and so I lean warrior come Pantheon however I'm open to the other two classes depending upon what they offer.

    Tank, all day erry day.

    It's a tough choice. I played a warrior on Vanguard and loved it. However, I played a warden (avoidance mitigation, medium armor, self HoT tank) in Lotro.

    I enjoy being a tank with added utility. Not only someone that can take a hit, but someone that can save the day when the crap hits the fan. In that vein, I'm thinking Crusader depending on how they play out.

    Excited to find out!

    I will probably be an Ogre Warrior when the game is released but I will stay away from those two choices till then.  I will probably play Crusader/Shaman/Enchanter/Rogue during Beta/Alpha if I get in...

    I won't be tanking, but I want you all to know I'll be healing and appreciating you.  Thanks for doing what you do.

    Front runner is Dire Lord but I generally play Warrior.  I still haven't decided.  I often have a necro that gets much of my alt attention so Dire Lord fullfills both of those needs.  We'll see as things get more concrete.

    Im sort of already set on the Crusader even though tanking isnt my favorite playstyle. I still have hopes that Crusader plays more of a support/dps role but if not I guess I will be tanking :) Tanks where always my secondary role if I had alternate characters/specs. I prefered the more hybrid dps roles though such as the Paladin in Dark Age of Camelot with a greatsword or Warrior Priest from Warhammer Online. That idea of front line healer by doing damage was likely my favorite incarnation of a "holy warrior" archetype.

    I will tank as a crusader.   Im not interest in fast leveling or raiding, only having a blast through the levels, and being the best end game dungeoneer I can be.  I might even have a multi-legacy crusader family line, but we shall see.  I plan on knowing them inside and out!

    I'll be Crusading. But also druiding. I've been playing both in games since EQ :) .

    I'll be playing as a Dire Lord when the game first comes out as I've always enjoyed the dps tank role and easier soloing of the SK in EQ2. The Crusader is also a class I'd like to check out because I started as a Pally in eq2 but betrayed pretty quick when I realized the gap in power between the two initially at launch.

    I did begin a chanter and a bard in order to find more groups too and found that I really enjoy the CC/utility aspect of play so I'll definitely be trying those classes as well...

    Thinking my first toon will be an Archai DL tho haha

    I played all kinds of tank in lots of mmo but in eq/eq2 and vanguard i liked the SK and DK they tend to have the best agro control for me. But i am not set yet going to try out all 3 in beta and see what is right for me in this game.

    So I had questions regarding the classes. Can warriors be dps or are they only tanks here? Are classes locked by races? And I'm sure racials will play into what race is more effective in what role right? cause I really wanna be a Dmyr warrior, and not have it be completely overshadowed by an ogre. I fell in love with the Myr because I've always wanted an aquatic race in an mmo, and there lore is savage af. Lol i also wouldnt being a ranger but that seems odd to me, that they'd be Rangers. arrows would move so slow and blah blah. Anyways that's it.

    I will probably roll my first toon as a Tank, but not 100%.  It took me a week of working the pros/cons of each class when EQ Progression opened last year..

    My main is usually a bard but since I will have to wait for that I am pondering over my choices for launch. My first character ever was an SK in EQ so I may roll a tank again. But I also love to pull and CC so I may go that route, possibly an enchanter. Ugh! So many decisions lol. In all honesty it will boil down to how the progeny system works since I may use it when the bard rolls out.

    Early EQ1 enchanters were tanks.

    For about 0.031 seconds.

    I'm sure enchanters are tanks even now...for .031 seconds. Until they take their first punch to the face. ;)

    I'l be playing a Dwarf Warrior. I enjoy being the leader, but I'll probably have an Echanter for CC. Although Healers are usually hard ot come by, so I might just role one of those as a alt.

     

    Who knows, I might just box both.

    I am already mapping this out:

      Primary = Enchanter

     1st Alt = Ranger

      2nd Alt = Dire Lord

     3rd Alt = Druid (in the hopes that it is anything like EQ2 Fury)

    and if there was ANYTHING like EQ2 Swashbuckler then I would play that too...

    Tank -- I just hope I can map all the keys to where they should be (every game for the last 10 years or so, if I can, I put all my tank keys in roughly the same spots, so I don't need to think about it).
