    I run a 6 box war, cle, druid, chanter, mag wiz. I also run a melee but I enjoy my caster team. I beat tbl and all challenger. I swap the Cle out for a mag or shaman depending on what I am doing. My buddy just started playing an sk and the amount of casting he does benefits from my teams ADPS so much I wanna swap my warrior.
    This is what I am talking about.

    They all stack, and the SK can has a chance to proc each on of those on each spell he casts. I am not whining I was just curios if any one else swapped out tanks and noticed a big difference.

    On the other end just to play both sides. I enjoy the RP of a warrior over a SK. MY sk will probably have to stay in shield stance since I am boxing, whereas my warrior is only in DW unless SHTF. Also Ive played my warrior for so long I do not want to give him up, and the thought of grinding to 110 plus augs, gear, for a tank.....

    Any one make the switch or attempt it?
    Hows the change?
    Also I do have a melle group where my warrior is the star. war, sham,bard,rog,bersker, mag. i just like the caster team better.

    I'm currently running war/pal/rog/zerk/brd/shm. Used to box sk/enc/wiz/wiz a couple years ago.

    I haven't done exactly what you're asking about, but I have some thoughts you might find useful:

    Caster-oriented aDPS is probably not a good enough reason to switch tanks. If you're in shield stance anyway, the SK isn't going to do great DPS. Not sure how it'd compare to a warrior in DW with that group. For reference I was around 50k with my SK with shield, and my warrior sustains around 200-220k with brd+shm aDPS.

    Fresh tank - if you have a 7th account, it'd make things much easier to bring up a second tank with your main tank still functional. I got my pally up as a 2nd tank/healer and threw on a suit of TBL T2 + GMM and was able to tank adequately as a fresh 110. If not on FV, you could drag the SK around and collect gear until ready to make the swap. Otherwise, if you're just swapping out the warrior, I figure you'll need to rely on pet tanking for quite some time. I don't think augs are a big deal.

    This feels like an awfully substantial hobble to so casually concede
    Sancus likes this.

    I don't have a good idea about how big of a difference it'd make but if i could change a char's class I'd totally switch my war to an sk for an expansion to try it out, even if my war only gear didnt carry over in any way.

    Make a new FTP account with the SK, grind it up with your warrior as the tank easily. 5+ months til new expansion. Plenty of time to experiment
