so you decided to give tanking a try. Maybe you're torn between juggernaut or marauder. Maybe tanking is something you have always wanted to try but were afraid. Maybe you are sick of dpsing in previous games and want to try something fresh when SW:TOR is released. Whatever the reason, I hope you find this guide useful in starting your tanking career. This guide is meant more for new players just getting into the role of tank. Those with a lot of experience tanking, feel free to chime in with advice of your own. FYI please be kind as this is my first attempt ever at a guide.
Let me start by saying, that tanking isn't for everyone. I say that because:
- You may not find it enjoyable
- You need to be thick skinned and be able to take criticism and insults that will come when the group wipes(even if its not your fault)
- It's not pew pew dps
- You have a lot of responsibility.
- You need to have constant awareness of your surroundings / healers mana / the fight mechanics etc etc
#swtor #swtour UPDATE NOTE:Stephen Reid ( community manager of swtor ) , inform us that the previewer was not in fansite summit ,but was at the press Immersion Days in the UK.
As the title says,we just read the bit-tech preview after the event of the press Immersion Days in the UK.
The previewer in two pages explain why he didn't liked the two days at the press Immersion Days in the UK and swtor as game of cource.
better read by yourself the whole preview .
Bioware has made a lot of noise about how it has infused a series of deep, immersive, epic stories into its upcoming long-ago and far-away MMO – and how those stories set The Old Republic apart from any other MMO. The stories that The Old Republic tell will keep players engaged and involved in a genre which all too often comes down to collecting nerf livers and skipping dialog text.
Well, supposedly, anyway. Our opinion of The Old Republic, formed over two solid days of playing, is that it’s one of the most boring titles we’ve ever had to endure. It’s plain and staid and deathly dull. It’s both exactly the same as every other MMO we've played, but at the same time so much worse because it promises so much more.
Which classes will have the Sprint Ability? -
Imperial Agent: Extreme Conditioning
Smuggler: Many Deals Gone Bad
Trooper: Extensive Endurance/Fatigue
Bounty Hunter: Won't need one with a jetpack, but
let's pretend they don't all have jetpacks!
Time is Money (not using the wow term)
Force User: I'm sure if you spec right in a AC, you will be eligiable
to get some kind of sprint ability like Force Sprint, but I know some of you
will want names.
Sith Warrior/Inquisitor: Deathly Fade
Jedi Knight/Counsular: Speed of Light (can't really think of one her, help me)
If BW gives each class the chance to get a Sprint ability in a AC, their names will probably
be along the lines of these
Don't like the names? Well, comment your ideas!
