No one in PvP who knows what they are doing, wears tank gear anymore. It nerfs your DPS too much and you add less effective to your team.

So therefore he was skank tank. Not a real tank but a dps tank. No not a dps trying to act like a tank, cause that is called bruce jenner spec.

A dps trying to be a tank is called a bruce jenner spec because the dps knows it is a dps, but has dreams of being a tank, and even with small tank cosmetic adjustments, never will be a tank.

A skank tank is a tank in dps gear with no absorbtion, no shield protection, all dps mini max to be a dps tank.

Too many people confuse that with the word skank tank. No self rightious player should ever be a wannabe dps and try to tank. Then again morals and values in this day of age have been lost in a fruit basket...

Skank tank = a DPS Speced player who is guarding another player.

Doc was not "skank tanking" seeing how he was in tank spec and wearing DPS gear.

That is like saying a concealment operative and lethality operative are the same thing.

I know definitions can be hard.

So in your brain, you think skank tanking dont mean a tank in dps gear? Yet the reference applys, are you a tank which means are you really a tank wearing tank gear, or are you a tank wearing dps gear which skank.

A dps puting guard on and acting like a tank isnt tank, and its not skank tank either.

That is called be a fool and wasting everyones time.
