Anybody else been running into this lately? 'Tank' classes that are not using their tanking stances, sometimes don't have shield generators, and or are equipped in pure DPS gear with not even a single defense, shield, or absorb stat boost?!
Just keep in mind that there's none of that available until level ~35 or so. Before that all you can do is choose between endurance and mainstat, and more endurance just gives the healer a bit more time to apply heals, time that isn't really needed anyway. Even after the amount of gear available with it is pretty limited unless you craft it or buy it from crafters.
