    Default Give mages a tanking soul!

    Since the warrior thread was such a hit, we should also speak up

    Gives mages a tanking soul or at the very least some toughness drops!

    Might as well....but then those pesky warriors will be wanting a heal soul.
    Rogue = Tank/DPS/Heal souls
    Cleric = Tank/DPS/Heals souls
    Mage = DPS/Heal souls
    Warrior = Tank/DPS souls

    It would be ultra cool if mages had a new soul tree that allows them to merge with their tanking pet. That would really set Trion apart and add something never seen in any mmo. The thing is this would not for the most part be hard. Just make the tree a more buff for mage and pet to enhance the over all aspect of the golem Tree. Then add some tanking bluffs and should be set for trail server.

    I wants a tanking soul, lots and lots and lots. And yes, Im perfectly happy with warriors getting heals/true support, I think it would be awesome for all four callings to have all four roles

    Do Not Want.

    I'd put it in caps but it gets filtered.

    While I don't think that mage needs a tank soul, if they made one, I sure would play it.

    Along those lines, I think that the soul would have to be water/earth based. That's where most of the damage reduction takes place.
    Through, people will end up calling it Mud ("You got a mud spec?" "Mage mud spec pvp QQ" etc.)

    itd be ridiculously easy to do it.

    Give us a new veil that increases threat/mitigation/loweres healing. Give us toughness pieces.

    tada!

    God knows that would be useful for times where we can't find a tank for mCR or mDD or any other raid.

    I don't see a reason why not. The only ones who cry about not wanting this or not wanting that is either because

    1. They don't want to do it and are afraid their guild might actually ask them to do more than pew pew
    2. They want to have a chokehold on the role so they can I guess big a big shot or something

    Warriors should have a healing soul via some kind of holy or spiritual method (Paladin, Templar, etc) and there's no reason mages can't have a tanking soul.

    Of course, Trion has to make sure that it doesn't suck or no one will use it anyway. That's the biggest hurdle to get around.

    Im perfectly happy giving clerics control spells, assuming they dont have some already, though stealth is kinda a rogue thing.

    Everyone doesn't need to do everything. God forbid you can't make a raid out of 20 mages. I'm fine not being able to tank. The reason why not is so that you don't homogenize the specialization of the various classes. Next you will want a melee DPS soul. "Why not" is not a good reason to do things.

    I already do a lot more than pew pew. I'm the least pew pew focused mage that still DPSes in our guild (ie not full time archon or chloro). I already tank Molinar and cover my own interrupts and reflects so you can throw the fear of mechanics thing right out the window.

    What does not wanting a tank soul have to do with being a big shot? I could care less about my DPS rankings if that's what you're referencing.

    None of the soul descriptions when I rolled a mage said tank. I specifically rolled a mage in part because there is NOT a tank soul in their repertoire. You knew this when you made your character. If you made the wrong decision, that's on you.
