About a month ago, last time I played my Assassin, I put a bunch of Guardian mods in her gear. Based on the time of when I last played her... the best excuse really is... I was more than likely drunk. 6 shots of Sailor Jerry (at home with friends via the internet, nobody drove).

Guys, don't drink and game.

Guardian tanks of TRE strike again:

I queue as sentinel and, some thirty minutes later, get a GF pop with "flashpoint in progress" - Mandalorian Raiders. Small alarm goes off in my head but curiosity and long GF queue get the best of me so I join to see what made the dps leave. Guardian tank in 66/69 gear, gunslinger in 69/72 and a commando healer in 63/66. The FP seems perfectly doable and we continue.

The tank, following the unwritten code of "How to tank on The Red Eclipse", slaps guard on the healer and jumps the dog boss. Slinger covers at the entrance, commando starts running around the room forcing me play tag with the doggies. My pleas for slinger and commando to ball up so I too can contribute some dps go unanswered. The guardian tank is late on a few boss taunts and the dogs get the buff. This prompts the healer to start jumping over obstacles while running around. Boss somehow kills the tank, we wipe.

Second attempt and the tank starts bashing the healer for being undergeared. Healer just leaves. We queue again and while waiting, I try to explain how guard works. The tank asks me what my point is and upon my "you should guard your highest mdps" reply slaps guard on the slinger. Because, apparently, he's too pro to listen to advice. At that point I enter my DGaF mode and stop caring.

The tank, despite being so pro, manages to get himself killed on the lifts. Later, he gets himself, slinger and the new healer killed because of his over aggro leaving me to solo two turrets and several droids while they all just lay there dead.

I think I'm going to have to abandon my lvl 20 Sage and start a guardian tank.

As long as you do know that guarding the healer in that fight is probably the best choice since no way jose a dps will be able to rip from you after using that many taunts on the boss after the freeze.

Well, he was maybe silly for leaving the flashpoint but not for asking for a guard. I just whish that people would come out of their little utopia and realise that at least in lowbees you have to tank a lot as healer. Its more common that the healer tanks more than the actual tank. Yes I know its not supposed to go like that but it just does, face it and deal with it. This my experience from levelling 2 healers solely by flashpoints (lv46 and lv 33 atm).

Having said that, yes I know the threatreduction from guard isnt needed on healers since a tank of a dps have only to attack once or so to get it back. But they don't so I rather get the 5% damage reduction.
Anyways ... leaving and not healing the tank was quite strange indeed. I would have just buckled up and healed the **** into myself and the rest when needed.

More ontopic I have a story again of my own. Made quite a noob mistake in the red reaper.
The tank made it clear that it was his first time around so I took a little time to explain stuff. When we were approaching the final boss I warned about the 3 elites with their pushback.
Ofc I got knockoff myself while the 3 other, including the tank were safe.

To make the matter worse I forgot that we had skipped the 2 turrets at the color switch boss and aggroed them. Luckely since I'm healer I got heal myself. It took quite some time to dps both turrets down.
Felt such like a noob for doing this :P

I wish people would come out of their little utopia and realise that GUARD DOES NOTHING FOR THE HEALER. Guard WILL NOT help you stop tanking in lowbie FPs. DPS doing their job correctly will (y'know, that kill order thing they do). Using Guard strictly for the 5% DR is such a waste...

I apologize for hijacking the thread. In my defense, this was the 100th time I've seen this logic and I HAD TO SAY SOMETHING. Now back to the funny stories, hopefully!

Same apologize here but like you I had to reply since this is the 100th time I've seen this logic and I HAD TO SAY SOMETHING.
Obviously didnt read my reply correctly since I agree with you on most parts. Guard will not let you stop tanking as healer. But since most adds are not on the tank either way, placing a guard on dps isnt helping either since at most a dps is going to overtake 1 mob. As a healer I would choose for the 5% DR and heal the dps stealing aggro. Don't underestimate the power of guard with multiple adds. It can save your live as healer.

not exactly true. i have sin tank leveling. at 49 now. i will put guard on mdps or higher geared rdps if both are rdps when we are doing 50+ level fp or hm fps. under 50 i always had guard on healer. because

1. dps never follow kill order under 50 level fps(atleast 1 dps wont). they have to hit the targets which look strong. the weak always attack healer by the time i realise dps left them again and i didnt get aggro on them.

2. if both dps knows about kill order and knows their class. they will kill weak first and then strong. and i dont lose aggro to them at all usually when they do it like that. because i use single taunt as much as possible and keep mass taunt for emergency. so if the dps knows what they have to do. they even use aggro dump usually if they know kill order. so doesnt matter who i put my guard on this case.

both cases below level 50 i am talking. so below level 50 fps, i prefer guarding healer as they can have atleast 5% reduction in damage. and dps who want to kill strong first cant take aggro of me anyway as i keep my gear upgraded every 4 level as a tank. so its not bad to guard healer under 50 fp i think. atleast from my experience. and i almost never have wipes even if there is an occasional extra mob pull. i'm sure many will disagree with me.

E: i have 2 55 healers. and i request tank to put guard on mdps if they put it on me in hm fps. they usually put it without questioning.


E 2: just had athiss HM 55 fp. guardian 35k respeced tank. slinger 37k mando 35k, me 33k sage healer.

tank slapped guard on me. i politely asked to put it on slinger as he had more dps though we all 3 were ranged. but tank no reply. then after 2 mob pull. i healed slinger and me first pull. healed mando and me on sencond pull. more than healing tank. i requested him to put guard on either of dps as they pulled aggro. but tank is silent.

after first boss fight. slinger quit group without a word. and both were silent about guard. the nwe get sent little undergeared, but enough for this one. still i have the guard >.>
couldnt make him understand and i just ignored and healed all as they needed more heal than tank and as it was just athiss. didnt worry much. though both dps caught fire on last boss. somehow we made it through without any casualties.

I got one;
Fresh 50 marauder, got a pop for HM LI (btw I swear trial by fire for my new toons every single one has gotten LI as their first HM 50 FP), now my marauder is in the makeb mod comm stuff so mostly 58s which is old Ralata lvl gear. It was in progress on the savrak boss wiped once due to a pipe not being lit (might have been my fault, think I cancelled the cast a millisecond before it finished). Second te we get'em not before I noticed that I ripped aggro not once but twice off the Jugg tank. Now I know Juggs and PTs have lower aggro gen then a Sin... But a 15k marauder stealing aggro?

Inspect time!
And I was in horror, tank was in greens.... And a mix of Dps and tank greens at that. We progressed and managed to down Lorrick as well. He dropped Heavy armor str Dps legs which I needed on (did not notice they were heavy till after) as did our tank. Who won them, and proceeded to equip them swapping out tanking legs for Dps legs....
Cannot believe I have a tank on ignore... If it had been earlier in the evening I would have tried to explain things to the guy but I was way to tired and just felt like not dealing with him ever again on my marauder.
