This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. A well played SK is perhaps the most powerful class in EQ. You need to take a good look at what youre doing, and maybe research your class some, talk to some other SK's to find out what it is that youre not doing. There are end game SK's that top the raid parse (Hi Ketruh, Drogbaa) dps-wise. Ive seen an SK pull every animated armor in Mearatas (16 yellow con mobs, Sithsonn) with Reavers Bargain, Mortal Coil, epic etc, like it was 2 or 3. They can heal themselves, pull, tank and dps at a level that no other tank class can dream of. Try playing a paladin for 20 years and get back to me.
