    Default Solo Tanking Akylios

    I'm posting this to encourage all you tanks to try doing this with all the p4 nerfs and all and being able to use a normal spec. It's some of the most fun I've had in rift trying to manage everything.


    Pics of it in motion. One of my guildies was kind enough to fraps it all so there should be a video some time. Was our messiest kill yet, but stacking for orbs isn't my fault! He enraged 1% early and then took out a couple people with mind burrow.

    Im working on encoding the video for upload to youtube. 38.8 GB of 30fps Fraps at 1080P max settings is gonna be about 8 hours of encoding. Ill put it up here when its done. Definately ugly, and I call B U L L S H I T on getting killed by breath at the very end, look where I died when its supposed to be a center breath goddamit!!

    Grats on that.

    Most of it seems not too bad to do, but how the HELL did you control all the adds in P2 as well as a lasher? That seems near impossible on warrior.

    Im pretty sure they used some kind of senticar with tank gear who switched miens when needed as second tank.

    If that is the case this thread doesn't exist imo, but its very possible tanking lashers+adds. The hard part would be tanking all the adds bunched up in P1+Jornaru wich i guess is doable aswell.

    No we didn't. We did have a not geared cleric to see the fight.

    can also have someone just aggro the adds, and run to the tank....problem solved

    this actually seems much easier then have 2-3 tanks do it, less to mess up....and know how UBER PRO I AM (better then Sebb) at tanking, this should be a sinch

    Hmm sacrificial rogue. But would you taunt off them is the real question?

    Unintentionally 1 tanking p4+ with the paragontank spec was pretty intense before the wave nerfs too. Jornaru tank lagged off the side at about 30% and cleric mien switcher got waved off right after that.

    I find it useless, the DPS gain is minimal and you make things 10x harder for everyone.
