In no particular order, Valandra, Almalexi, Calissi. As of two years ago.

Feels good to post on a pointless thread when I don't play anymore.

I recall Odok being rather pro.

Someone use that mod to find out this persons main so we can not name them.


Chrome Bastard Addon says this is "Playaqt" / "Unaware" are other known toons of the op. Mind you, this only pays attention to toons someone has posted on. If they only post on alts, their main won't show up on the list.


I should dust off my old sword and board since I have no idea who half the people listed here are.

If you don't know who Odok is, then you really aren't from this server; and I'm not even Horde.

Alright, time to flesh out the old school ADer's, when I say Golithion(sp) was the greatest AD tank.

J/K, i just wanna see how many old school ADers are still around. Any remember the SS of him saying he's better then any tank in Dark Paradigm and Black Phoenix?

Oh man. Gothalion. So easy to push his buttons and get him all worked up.

I'm the cutest tank, I think we can agree, but as for the best?

Odok hands down.

I've been in groups with both of aforementioned folks.

I recall Odok being good.

I remember Ace being unimpressive. It's possible he got better over time. I remember him from when he was known for his five-boxing gimmick with the paladin and four mages. (Which takes a disposable income, decent computer, and a few macros (could be done with 2-3). Skill not terribly required. Boom was better. :p )

(Obvious troll thread is obvious)
Question have you been in a raid with Ace tanking? If you say no then what you said above has no weight. If you have then you surely know that he used the mages when raiding something like MC or AQ40 or to camp out rare spawns for the Frostbitten achievement. In an at level raid (Wrath) I found his skill to be excellent; he knew the fights; used CDs; great reaction time; didn't rage out. I'd say that last one is the most important but that's just a personal opinion.

Unfortunately I've not been in a raid with anyone else mentioned so far so can't speak to their skill but the fact that they've been mentioned certainly says they're above average for AD.

Tank on AD.

My post implies that, yes, I have, otherwise I wouldn't have posted it.

I couldn't tell you which raid, or what he did or didn't do to make me have negative recollections. It could have been a number of things, all not really related to non-contextual dislike. I did note that it is possible that he got better in the time since my experiences.

Typically, I have considered a tank bad when they repeatedly fail at the basics (like not turning your back to a mob, or taunt when dbm tells you to type basics) especially when they act intolerable and try to talk the talk but fail to back it up. When the tank is doing it wrong, like messing up spec, not using cooldowns gemming inappropriately (lol not def/avoid capped but stacking stam and being crit like crazy back in the day, as a healer I tend to notice inappropriate damage spikes). You get the idea.

Speaking of Sinne (who was also rather good)...
I remember healing with drunktir tanking. lol.

Edit: I need to proofread when I have cats walking across my keyboard while typing.
