Why no Heavy Armour for us? [PVE Orientated]

I really don't see how anyone can complain about marauder not using heavy armor. Seriously, this isn't even my primary toon and it's definitely the most deadly. The dps and defense buffs and debuffs that marauder has more than make up for any perception of a lack of physical armor. If you think you need heavy armor you probably need to work on timing your defense abilities a bit more.

They didn't give marauders heavy armor, but they more than made up for that deficit with active survival CDs. I think it's a lot more fun (and effective) using the right CDs for different scenarios than to just rely on heavy armor to mitigate a bit more of the incoming damage.

Can't tell you how many times I've tanked after the main tank died and saved the day on my mara.
