So I caved on my pld-hating ways and have begun leveling it. I see why so many people hated tanks pre-50, gld holds like no hate until you get Rage of Halone. At least with overpower there was a direct effect of how much hate you pulled with how much damage you did, flash doesn't show it so well which leads to hate loss unless you just spam flash. I'm gonna have to keep my gld gear up to date all the time it seems.
War is now i90. Sadly, though, I'm not using full BiS stuff. I need an allagan ring of fending, war pants, and allagan feet for the optimal gear sets. Still, I make for an OP offtank now, massive crit chances. Plus my dual haken, I easily land all my hits. Oh, and I have a metric fuckton of hp now.
