you're entirely free to play how you want, i'm just warning that you will be disappointed as it simply doesn't work here as it did on live. you will barely notice a difference between going full turtle and just regular orvr def support

the only fun thing that turtle tanks can do that nobody else can is utilize really aggressive cc, ie. charging into the enemy line and punting people out. you're still useless but it is pretty fun when you get good at it and that is where investing in nothing but survivability will actually help you a bit over other builds

SM is the best class for doing this as you are very likely to get kd'd or counter punted which is instant death, so vauls tempering is actually very good here. SMs snb punt is also excellent, undefendable, really long, big air time. even if you do get counterpunted you have the m1 to just jump back which -sometimes- saves you

BG is also really good with endless pursuit/elite training combo proccing speed, hardcap toughness, the superpunt and what essentially amounts to crit immunity with fof if you built right but unlike SM you are very vulnerable to counter cc. theres also the m2 aoe punt which i cant quite figure out, sometimes it seems like it ignores immunities other times not. fun either way

if you wanna try it and keep the dream alive go for it, just know that you will end up on peoples lists very quickly and will start getting assist bombed on sight. name changes are every 30 days 8-)

Yes, i will be able to play the game next week. We will see if i will end up on peoples lists very quickly :p

And i am curious, i see some person in the past told me how to play "right". Is it the case for the DPS? I see that for healer who dont heal. But DPS I am not sure.

My take on being too tanky :

https://cakesplan.wordpress.com/2021/06 ... tankiness/
Cakes take is the wisest way if you are looking to be the absolute best help to your WB. I have done both full turtle and semi turtle with more abilities / tactics to help WB. Both ways are great fun. You will find what you enjoy most at some point. I have found it’s best to simply be tanky enough to not stress your healers while providing any unique skills/ tactics you have depending on tank class you are playing. Tanks are great fun and are really needed for Order :-) Good hunting and most of all have fun!
