Excellent tips. It's so good to see this rose of a thread growing in the desert of PvP Ragedom.

I'm a shadow tank and when I play with my healer buddy we are nigh unstoppable. I've played only about 20 matches overall and am still frequently overwhelmed by what's going on, but that doesn't stop me from finishing in the top three almost every single time we play together.

When I PvP without him, I'm in the bottom three.

So pretty much, a good healer can carry an inexperienced tank to glory.

One thing I've noticed is that it's not ideal for the healer to lead the way around the map because I have to look for where he's going (to stay close enough for guard to work) on top of looking for objectives and targets. This causes me to either lose sight of the healer, or miss crucial objectives. Thus, your point of having the healer following the tank around (and not vice versa) is a very good one. Hopefully I'll be able to take the lead a bit more as I get more PvP experience.
