Off in the corner soloing elites - basically off tanking - while the main tank holds down the other mobs?
This might be the reason you die in FP. Lots of healers do NOT heal dps wannabe tanks. Never go for the big elite fist in a FP. ALWAYS start with the low hp mobs and move to medium hp mobs and kill high hp mobs last. If you should be offtanking anything it should only be lowhp mobs that die fast.
PvP iīve got no idea, but in PvE i havenīt noticed any difference. Exept for some odd reason the imp comunity seems just a tiny bit more friendly. Maybe thatīs just due to total randomness of it all, but when people ask newbie questions in general chat, imp side seems to be to have less rude answers.
