On a related note, I only got that PUG to level 18, but even at this level; I'm reminded each time I enter a dungeon why I usually play a tank.

It blows my mind how many people don't understand how to keep hate on more than one mob at a time


I will say this, as a glad, it can be really hard to hold aggro of an entire group until lv 22 (provoke). Depending on how much the healer spams heals. Then it gets easy at 26 (with 3rd part of the eminity combo).

I wish there were any kind of news regarding when the new character bans will be lifted. I'm on Ultros and a friend who just bought the game can't play with me. I'll create an entirely new character if it doesn't happen soon, but that gives me a headache.

As a tank, it blows my mind how often people do not assist off of me. It's a two way street.

Make sure to move a few of the target icons to a spare bar (I just use 1, 2, and 3). If the dps is can count to 3 there shouldn't be a problem, but with a CNJ or WHM spamming medica (group heal)it is impossible to hold agro from the extra mobs even at lvl 35. Few healers realize this in an emergency heal that should only be used on the rare occasion the party takes an AOE. As a CNJ I always made the tank the priority and single target healed, even when the ignorant archer pulls the #2 mob from the group. Sometimes I would have time to throw him a heal, others he would take a dirtnap. This gets much messier when a mob breaks away from the pack and Medica is used. Now instead of the tank and dps fighting over agro the healer is being chased around the room by the entire pack.

For tanking, open up with (2) flashes then progress through a combo on the #1 target. By this point you can start rotating through the other two mobs and use provoke or combos to keep them on you. If you still ave problems due to healer agro or a dps is just doing as they please, you can always spam flash. The only draw back to that is the entire run will take longer now that you have to wait for mana regen between packs. Tanking and healing are more about the rest of your party playing together and less about the individual class.

I changed from CNJ to GLD in early access since tanking is just more involved. You have to work to keep agro in this game, but you are still always going to be heavily dependent on the rest of your group.

ETA: If you have a gaming mouse, set your target icons to the spare buttons. This helps when a boss summons adds mid fight and you need to create a kill order for your group.

Yes, but you can expect people playing DPS to be somewhat retarded.

I have no problems holding aggro, was just trying to let it be known that it is much more involved in this game than others.

I personally start off with 1 flash then rotate the 3 combo chain. With a flash in between each combo if the group is 3 or more. Holds them easy enough. Don't really use provoke, since it is a line cutter and not a builder. Just save it in case something nasty jumps on the healer.

I have my targets set of course, no problem with that.

Baby Ifrit was fun. Makes me slightly concerned about Ifrit hard, though. Wasn't in my comfort zone, and apparently there are now 6 nails you have to take down.

The cracks seemed harder to see. Everything shimmers in there so I kept thinking I saw them popping up.

Sorry this was your first MMO experience, not having ques/ afk tiners for servers is pretty bad.

Uldah is the typical hangout spot but with all of the running around I've been doing, I'm all over the place.
