    It's true. I ran both the Knightsdome and Lust duo both with a healer. In The Knightsdome I doubled the healing out. Lust I tripled it. As long as you have power, there should be no reason you can't stay up as a Rage tank. I just prefer playing fire.

    To be fair, people could say it, coz however you look at it, that's now 2 powers that are very specific (to the point of you being locked into what you are) to a single aspect of the entire DC Universe, as opposed to the rest being very broad and generic.

    Mind you, I dislike that they made both Light and Rage power sets specific to Lantern lore in the first place (rather than generic powers like the other 10), so I'm coming from an biased point of view, lol.

    I stayed with mental all the way up to quantum. I only changed as it fit my char better.

    I play what I like, and don't care what is op or whatever.

    My seldom played villain is a hard light, but I hate it, so I think I will change her to rage.

    really? rage tanks suck?
    you want to know what I think? I think that YOU canNOT Tank, and dont know the basics of tanking.

    It has a few issues, but none that are beyond fixing...A UWC crash mitigator would fix the biggest problem I have with the power

    It's a very good thing that I was not drinking coffee when I read this, because I might have needed to get a new laptop afterword. I have often quietly wondered why so many of those who post in favor of the game requiring more 'work' are themselves too lazy to form proper sentences or even type out full words such as 'you'. Thanks for the laugh. ;)

    I'll amit, I probability should have given Rage more of a chance. But I just love fire too much. I never do the power hoping either. This was my first switch on my main. Fire just suits me I guess.

    i thought about switching my fire main as well. can't bring myself to do it. i also enjoy the tanking aspect of fire more than rage, even if i like the Dps of rage alittle better.

    id rather just painstakingly make a brand new toon. or not at all if im too lazy

    im kinda mad that rage is the new self-healing tank:mad:
    but its completly different from fire.

    Fire relies on Healers
    Rage relies on well itself(Once mastered, You don't even need a healer)

    To me rage tank is the most tank power i enjoyed so far its really fun & i dont think anyone will get bored of it fast. It makes me feel like a proper tank not a wall that need repair after 2-3hits i can heal myself & stay alive for a long time without healer i like it & so many other people i know

    Give them a chance to learn the power, the basic concept of it sounds good. I remember the same was said about celestial and look at it now.

    Rage tanking relies alot on power and with the cost of power increased with the t5 gear it puts a bigger burden on trollers add to that that most groups aren't going to run 3 trollers to keep the tank up and the group powered. I can see in a few weeks after the newness wears off most groups going back to wanting an ice tank because it is the most effective tank power and most of the rage players staying dps till whatever next power is OP like they always do .

    Does anyone else remember when people said Hard Light was a horrible trolling and DPS power the first week of release, or just me?

    Rage is either the most powerful tank or the least powerful tank depending on the situations and the playstyle of whoever is using it. I've gotten better at it and already I can do everything I was ever able to do as ice or fire or earth, and in some ways better.

    The big issue right now is fixing the aggro mechanics. There are certain things not working properly.

    Awesome you gave it a whole three days for people to work out rage tanking. Way to practice patience. I personally hope for a couple more lantern powers because they are fun. I'm really happy they went with rage instead of water which seemed to be the popular theory before they announced what power it was going to be.
