    well there's always paladin, void knight and the reaver you mentioned, that's 3 talent tree's to choose from and mix together, Im pretty sure we're going to see quite some variations in tanking builds reaver being sort of high damage tank, void knight "mage tank", being capable of absording a bunch of spell damage and draining mana, and paladin being your basic tank with high block chance (which makes me moist) and quite some endurance/1h damage

    Maybe we'll see a viable tank in each of the 4 archtypes. It's too early to tell.

    I make pretty pictures from things.

    Pally/Void Knight worked well.

    The general idea that I'm getting is that there is obviously a designated "calling" for true tanks that will be a necessity in higher end raiding/grouping and that consists of the Paladin/Void Knight/Reaver.

    You have the Justicar and the Riftstalker and an unknown spec from the Mage calling that will be "tougher" versions of the basic calling and able to withstand some direct damage punishment. I don't necessarily think they are going to be viable tanks in a group setting though, just my opinion.

    I can't see Trion going away from the basic idea of MMORPG gamers being dependent to some degree on other classes. IE ... the Warriors are dependant upon Clerics and Damage Dealers. It's too basic of a concept.

    I have to agree - I am skeptical of how well these "off tank" type roles will do at tanking. I do not think it is impossible, but I would love to hear from someone that tested a true Paly vs RIftstalker or w/e

    What is this void knight? I'm only seeing these classes for warrior: Champion, Reaver, Paladin, Warlord, and Paragon.

    Did they change the name of one of the classes? I'm so confused.

    For awesome Rift wallpapers go here and here!

    From what I am finding out - they do not have all the playable classes in beta posted on the website. That and there are souls called heroic souls - I do not know if those are extra soul slots or souls that have access to new/special archetypes.

    Don't dismiss Riftstalkers. I'll say that at least.

    In my IT run, it was a dual leather wearer who tanked, but he had a buff which gave him 50% more of armor values. That would be?
