A few weeks ago I noticed that for tank augments and artifacts there were no defense stat. Which I found to be extremely weird to say the least, that lead me to going over to my stats and reading defense. Which really didn’t have much to say, at this point I feel defense isn’t very important at least not as important as it should be. Defense should be the MAIN tank stat right next to health not dominance. When I read defense I expected it to go into detail and break itself down like every other stat does. I don’t even know how much defense is a lot of defense or how much less damage I’m actually taking as a result of my defense and much more. I feel the same for bosses as well, which leads me into promoting a new stat idea for dps (penetration). Back on defense, I ultimately feel that this stat is the most irrelevant tank stat and it just shouldn’t be that way especially since all the tank powersets have some sort of defense mechanic or if you earth or ice you completely live on your defense. I know I didn’t say all this in the best possible way but I lm confident in the fact that the point of this thread will be understood.
