    I posted a while back that I wanted to make a tank warrior. This is my first proper try at it and I'm pleased with the result but there are things I'd still like to improve on. With cleave I would like to get hold of bleed or venom to do more damage to multiple foes. Thorns is ok. I would also like to drop steadfast. I only took those boots for the armour.

    My brawn was a big issue in most of the battles. I could only chip away at enemy health and some fights took a mindnumbing length of time but then I hardly took much damage. I suppose this mimics being a tank well as tanks should take damage but do the minumum of dps. I'm looking forward to seeing how this works in the coperative play talked about for book two. I think having a tank might be good to soak up hits!!

    I don't see the point of a tanking class for single play or co op play. I would reckon two high dps characters would be much better for taking down bosses together unless warriors get some extra "tanking" skills and abilities. I don't get yet how the co op will work so just an opinion.

    Part of me is inclined to agree but then two dps with low or no armour are going to be pretty squishy if up against a boss that puts out a ton of damage. The question is whether fast damage and a quick kill is manageable or whether the fights are going to be longer endurance type combats.

    High dps and passives has to beat any other build combo no question
