    Default No mage tank gear drops for raids?

    So the patch notes identified items that can be bought in the store, and the new items from experts, but nothing for T1/T2 raids?
    As much as I hate to expand the loot tables as much as the next guy, seems like an unfair punishment to a class/role combination that will be working several times harder to catch up gear wise than any other.

    Bro Dontcha know mages should have "surpluses" of infinity stones. Oh, except the ones that breaked until tank came out. (Me), or full geared mages that quit raiding.

    Can always buy with credits... YAR!

    They might be adding stuff to T2 at a later date. As said above most mages have a ton of marks.

    Hopefully they have added things from what is on the PTS atm. I see mage tank t1/t2/t3 gear but I see no T2 mage tank weapons on the store, no upgradeable t1/t2 mage tank rings and no mage tank essences.

    Pretty fail but expected imo. Question is why on earth would they release a soul if they don't have the gear to play the soul in place. Sure you could buy cleric essences, cape, rings.... but who wants to farm all those stones again if they ever introduce actual mage tank gear?

    No crafted items too.

    Really no excuse for this error.

    @xynct: The real issue is...why didn't they have it ready. They could easily have just copied the Cleric version of the items, reversed the main stats for int/wis, replaced block with deflect and called it a day.

    Perfect? No.
    But it sure as hell wouldn't be pissing off most of the playerbase.
    Not everyone is going to spend credits for gear that should have been found in raids in the first place.
    Its very lazy, and its not a surprise since itemization team has always been the weakest part of Trion apparently.

    This is beyond lazy.
    Lazy is when you can't bother to get up and change the channel, and watch 2 hours of Lizard Lick towing.

    This is just...not caring. *shakes his head*

    @people saying "mages have tons of marks"

    What about mages who HAVENT been 60 for ages? Are they expected to ONLY gear up via desolate? Do you have any idea how long that will take to gear up for someone new to the game?
