Torm51 Posted June 18, 2015 Share Posted June 18, 2015 So I rolled at a tank that did not have a negative in Dex this time around. My last one Dex was his dump stat and he did his job as an immovable object. This guy was overall more balanced. with no negatives in Dex. He should technically DPS better no? But as the example below states it didn't matter as I feel like if you have equipped a one hander It just doesn't punch through DT like it should unless you have offensive talents (like vulnerable attack) which most tanks don't spec or a high accuracy class. The only thing he did better was kill soft targets faster. Which my rusty old 3 Dex did as well. Just slower. Is there any point in dumping dex as a defensive tank? Does a defensively specced tank have any hope of punching through High DT? He is likely using a hatchet or some type of one hander. If you switch to a single weapon you will not have the defense and get worn down on POTD. Last night my trial of iron ended cause I walked into the leaden key meeting with my party by mistake (haha!). I had bad positioning and my most of softess got chewed up. It was just me and Eder and we just couldn't kill the Plate wearers in there (we did kill all the softees). Funny thing is they could not kill us. I went to take a shower and came back 15 minutes later and we were still hacking away at each other. I just exiting the game and counted it as a loss. I didn't prepare properly by bringing scrolls. Point is this tank had supposedly had better "DPS" with 10 Dex yet did the SAME job my rust bucket 3 Dex guy did. Why not have the stats into more deflection at that point? I just hate stat dumping.
