Okay, I misunderstood then. I thought he was talking about occasions where DW stacks were gone, it came off cooldown, but he waited to refresh because he didn't want to lose the bulwark stacks.
Going into carbonite until the multiplayer returns to the MMO

It's funny how sin tanks went from the easiest to pick up to arguably the hardest. Took me a good few days on the pts to get it down.

Powertechs have always been the easiest to play tank. Sins the more complicated, though pre-2.0 less so than now.

If you want a tank where you feel like you got more going on and your more active in the fight than just standing around holding threat I would go with the Assassin tank. If you are looking for an easier tank to start off with on a lower learning curve then go with the PT. Both are good tanks, both have their weaknesses and strengths, Neither is better than the other.

I've raiding on both and I prefer my Sin over my PT.
Not all things in life are free,
and freedom has the highest cost of them all.
Remember those who gave, so you could enjoy what others do not.
