Tanking can increase your power when it comes to group play as well as the power to OSRS gold get the items that you’re looking for. Even if your raid dps is low. My main role is a lock and i am able to perform 1500 dps. My pally for rets is around 800+ dps on trash , and 1k+ for bosses. I got all my ret gear on the pally by tanking and healing whenever I needed to and eventually, I could get the gear for dps when I ran with classes with higher geared that would compete with me or even excluding them from the contest.
Are you talking about raids or heroics? I’m guessing that if the guy was talking about Rogues adding value to CC and helping with things like off healing, he’s probably referring to heroics. The average dps is typically lower without consumables and buffs to raids.
The main thing is that in heroics with larger packs, locks can be seeded, which makes dps to a higher. A single target on my lock is still able to do 1500 against bosses if the tank can withstand threats and there’s a shaman and mechanics won’t be able to prevent it.
I mean yeah if you have a tank that is geared and a good lock with big pulls, everyone else in the group is basically carrying everything except bosses. You’re gonna smoke hunters and the mages too, unless they’re low on health. The mage is able to snipe before seeds explode.
I’m not disputing that 500 dps on an individual boss isn’t a lot, but if you give an animal the same set of conditions (fast kill times, high buffs) they’ll be over 1k quickly if they have some gear.
I’m somewhere between 400-500 DPS as a wild tank. The numbers should be higher in cat form with the dorky lvl 40 hat. If not, then what someone else said is right, you should just tank.
Feral tank is able to use the racks of items, and can switch to DPS very easily. the difference in skill between a tank and the most skilled DPS cat is about one or two points. It’s not necessary to concentrate on the wild DPS.
You are right, there is more value to bringing. And personally I’m pretty laid back and would not care that you’re only getting 500-600 DPS in a group with me. We’re just trying to highlight the massive benefit cheap RS gold you’re missing by not also tanking.
