    hey all, trying not to be too annoying with the “help me pick a character” question but serious struggle.

     

    I love tanking small team content but being able to run DPS just for kicks would be nice as a side gig.

     

    Any insight on the DK/Temp/NB decision?

    You can do any class a dps and tank just by swapping gear ar endgame.  Defensive champion points are separate trees than offensive, so you dont even really need to respec.  And unless you are playing a health stacking tank build, most people run all 64 attribute points in stam or mag anyway.  The only difference would be race, which helps a lot tanking but is marginal/moderate benefit as a dps.

    i have an imperial stam dk that tanks trials and then i swap gear from heavy to medium sets, pop on a bow and dw and i can dps trials.  Not the best dps race, but it is top 3 or 4 for stamina.

    you could go nord or imperial stamplar or stam dk and do well.

    Do the racial Passover make that big of a difference or is that geared towards the min/max crowd?

    I’d say it’s more geared to the min/max crowd but really you can tank on any race. I think redguard would be a good choice if you wanted to tank and DPS and just keep attribute points into stam

    I presume that “light” was a typo for “medium” or “lighter”? :)

    Fortunately, there are very few bosses who try to kill your first-born children.

    U can’t do the two things, and trust me , i tryed. If u want to do dps , go medium armor and dual weild , if u want to tank , go heavy and one hand and shield (maybe 2 handed for be offtank) Survivality depends on what skill tree u take. Nightblade siphoning or Templar healer.
