Healers should be stacking Defense. You won't want to get hit while healing do you?

I stack accuracy on my healer, so my heals don't fail when I throw them.

I've been thinking about stacking Accuracy and Alacrity on my tank... So I can taunt much faster, and make sure my taunts don't miss and accidentally hit a tree or something. That tree aggro can be pretty terrible.

I stack surge as a tank. That way my defense is BIGGER!

Right?

It is when your shield crits.

I bet.... the BEST way to tank, is to use no tanking gear at all. That stuff is probably pretty heavy and weighs you down.

Imagine tanking in the nude? You'd be much more nimble and be able to dodge out of the way of all the attacks.

I think we've been doing it all wrong.

When Shield Crits:

If you stack your Surge high enough, here is what happens:
  • Attack for 50,000 damage comes hurtling towards your pretty face.
  • You raise your shield to block it, cowering in fear...
  • and SUCCESS! You shield the attack.
  • Your 25% Absorb eats up 12,500 damage. (who needs to stack Absorb... really?? pfft)
  • And the Gods have smiled upon you! Not only have you shielded the attack, but it has been a CRITICAL SUCCESS!
  • Since you have smartly stacked Surge, you have an 80% Critical Multiplier, which absorbs the remaining 75% of the incoming attack (37,500 damage) and HEALS YOU for an additional 5% (2,500 HP)

And THAT my friends... is why Tanks should stack Crit and Surge.
