Can you fire tank Nexus? Has anyone done fine as a Fire Tank?

    I keep hearing folks diss fire tanks or not want them in Nexus raids. I'm a fire tank and I feel some kind of way. What's up with that?

    Im sure you can.

    Get good counters and always be ready to use a breakout if the situation calls, and any tank should be able to tank Nexus.

    The problem you came across is having a Fire tank is hard on a weak group, so people want the indestructible Ice tanks to carry their slow reaction time having solo healers through content.

    I tank them all regularly. My favorite to tank is DOX, my second Favorite is AnB. I hate tanking Nexus though. Its too boring.

    correct nexus and a/b are fine for a fire tank (of course if they know what they're doing), wave i'm still not sold on yet. I feel ice is best for wave second is rage (as long as they don't rage crash)

    I have tanked both Nexus and Dox as fire.

    And if I can, anyone should be able to put up a decent fight, because I am not very good at this game.

    Fire tanking is one of the easiest, and boring, tank classes. There is no power interaction with fire as EVERY power is our power interaction. I primarily centers around popping a power (any power - to buff your health) and holding block. (Over simplified, but basically) You can tank any content in the game well as fire, including epic oddy in less than 15 min back when it was hard.

    The real problem with fire, we all went rage!

    Ah memories. That was the first time Rooney had ever run Epic Odyssey with us. Good times. :)

    EDIT: Jeez time flies...that was posted back in November of last year (although I think the run was done at the end of October).

    I personally have never fire tanked just ice and rage but i have seen fire tanks do Nexus, AnB, Paradox with out any problems, i know from a rage tank PoV that Hal Jordan and Saint Walker hit like freight trains as do a lot of things in Wave but Nexus that's easy peasy now that the bats don't hit nearly as hard as they use to.

    I can fire tank nexus with no problem. If i can tank it with crappy gear then everyone can.

    Fire tank Nexus? Is that one of those 'military intelligence' types of contradictions? I heard it's unpossible.

    You don't have to heal a good one.

    With a Rage tank that knows what he or she is doing you should have no problem, all a Rage tank needs is power.
