So, me and a friend have both created brand new tanks for the Undaunted dungeon event at the moment. We took characters that were already leveled, and kitted them out to be as tanky as we could. I went with ebon and pariah for my sets.
I did my first random dungeon as a tank 2 nights ago, and got normal Elden Hollow 2, which I was a bit worried about, but we seemed to get through it ok, so I was a little proud of myself for getting through it.
Queued with my friend as a tank and me as DD last night, and we get normal Darkshade 1. I was so jealous that he got an easy dungeon, especially as both of us have had numerous solo runs through that dungeon on our own DD characters, so it was crazy easy blasting through it last night.
Then it was my turn to tank whilst my friend was DD, so I get on my tank and queue us up for a random normal, which pops within about 5 seconds, and….I get to tank normal Moon Hunter Keep!!!
After briefly soiling my pants, I tell my friend there's no way I can do this. Brand new tank, on one of the brand new dungeons, and I haven't even done this dungeon before on my stronger, more-comfortable-to-me-DD.
So, I reluctantly start going through the dungeon. Luckily, my friend is a very good player with a strong character, and we had another DD who must've run the dungeon quite a few times before, and was strong as a DD so, long story short, I actually managed to tank my way through MHK! I was shocked to say the least, and couldn't believe my eyes when the achievements started coming through on my screen. I managed to get the Book Smarts achievement somehow. Might not mean much to players who have ran the dungeon quite a few times, buy I was glad to get anything from this dungeon!
Anyway, I just wanted to show off a little, but also wanted to thank the healer and DD that knew what (s)he was doing – even though you did keep running off through the dungeon on your own, we kept up, and we all got through it. I died twice, but that was still a lot less than what I thought would happen.
Anyway, I still have no real idea about tanking, but I'm eager to try more now, and hopefully I'll be able to get some more practice in on easier dungeons.
For all you starter tanks – keep going, don't stress, and don't let anything get you down. If I can do it, you bet your behind that almost anyone can do it!
And to the other 3 members of the group on these dungeons – be understanding, be kind, and be patient. The dungeons are easier for everyone when we all get along and look out for each other.
Rant over! 😀
