    Default Maintank.

    Hi guys.

    Well for once i want to play Main tank. In the previus MMORPG's iv ether been pure DPS or Main healer classes.

    As the information is pretty lose and not to sharp around the courner, i wonder if you guys know what class combo will be the Main tank. I can see that all Warrior classes can tank to some degree Offtank, trashtank etc. But what tank will be the ultimate main tank?

    Thanks guys.

    Reaver or Paladin look promising. With minimal information that is my best guess.

    Reaver skills can be seen here

    Somehow i got this gut feeling that Reaver will easy be compared to Shadowknight as in EQ1 as an offtank. But tbh, i think a tank in this game will be exellent fun.

    Talks a little bit of changing souls on the fly.

    Its nice to see someone else thinking about completely switching it up. I am almost always a DPS class, but I am thinking of starting off as a Healer for my main in Rift. Reaver has quite a bit of damage reduction, along with other perks so it is shaping up to be a nice tank class.

    ATM I believe the souls known to have tanking abilities are Paladin and Reaver, and to an extent the Void Knight, which has anti-magic capabilities.

    My own assumption is that the Warlord will be a tank equivalent to the Champion, as in a magic-free physical tank, possibly with some 'shout' type short lived group buffs.

    Since you'll be able to mix and match up to 3, I wouldn't be surprised to see tanks taking an offensive 3rd soul, possibly for the low hanging fruit of Bull Rush in the Champion soul (a charge/stun attack)
