Tank in pvp
Return to board index
Before they nerfed vengeance, I saw some tank in PvP, mainly warrior and dk.
I'm wondering, how are they doing in PvP in 5.2, are any of them even viable in Arena ?
I know they are somewhat good in BG to carry flag and whatnot, but how many of them do you need in RBG ? (never done any)
I've always been a casual pvp'er but I might considering doing more PvP, always played Tank in PvE so I'm curious if I'll 100% need an off-spec for PvP.
Tanks are used as flag carriers in RBGs. Also only Blood DK tank is somehow viable in 2v2 but not in 3v3 or 5v5. Tanks are not needed in every RBG. They are mostly needed in WG, TP, AB and BoG (in last 2 as base defenders). But you should also have dps off-spec. And 1tank per RBG. Warrior is most wanted tank (best cds) then is druid then DK then Paladin and then Monk.
I hope I helped.
To add to this, they are nerfing tanks in PvP again in 5.3. Anytime a tank specced char has a flag they will take 50% extra damage, whereas a non-tank specced char will take an extra 20%. Blizz reasoning for this is that people who are hard to kill (ie tanks) are not fun for the other people. They also want to make it so that other characters/specs are viable as flag carriers, not just tanks.
