    Default casters are the best pvp tankers O.o

    im wondring which class can tank(pvp-wise) the best? pyro or cleric?
    i guess cleric.

    can someone kill a cleric 1vs1?(both of you rank 6) i've never seen it before.

    If I were a rogue, I would be embarassed.
    Red ball + fulminate + really craptacular dom/pyro spec trying to hard cast transmog and pray your spell lands before some squirrel punching moron eats your controlled opp proc = +1 board warrior keeping mages from being realistically balanced in PVE or PVP. 1.0-1.2's best combo in the game.

    A cleric tank is not a caster for the most part :/

    Please don't insult the concept of theorcraft by associating it with anything nodisplay does or posts.

    If the mage is running some form of necro/lock, he will probably come out on top, just because he won't run out of mana and the cleric will........eventually.

    Warlocks have tank survivability for 8 seconds, and then they're dead.

    This conversation shouldn't even be happening. Find me a video of a mage that can survive 5-10 people focus firing them. You won't manage it.

    Cleric's tank way better than any mage, hands down. The closest thing a mage could pull to tank level survivability was detaunt on a GoS pyro to one target, and that's going away with 1.2, while clerics are getting buffed. Clerics don't need detaunt to tank half a raid.

    I agree, but what's the point? Trion's going to do whatever they want, and the only thing that will change it is a QQ roar loud enough to be heard in the general forums, much like the pyro QQ has been.

    I for one don't have the energy to give a **** anymore. I can recognize that clerics are precariously balanced, being able to tank in PVE and heal raid bosses is going to be a pain to adjust in PVP without gutting them.

    If I were a rational man, I'd actually care that some balance be struck, but now I just don't. Go get em tiger, so I can sit back and lol while I pull down some more pips on the euro dollar while standing around buff botting in pvp.

    I was referring to the 1v1. Sorry should have made that clear.

    That's because warriors have access to 3 CC's on differing drs AND interrupts. It's pretty ******ed to be chain ccd by one warrior while I have no recourse. Would trade my left nut to run dom with 8.5k+ health and be able to completely disable one target while I kill them.

    What kind are we talking about here?

    Oil, Chemical, Aircraft, Personnel or Ship? Or maybe André Tanker?
