Default DBG forum post targetting tanks

In case you never hit the DBG forums, someone made an incoherent post attempting to nerf tanks and inparticularly, SKs. Of course, every player without a clue has chimed in to join the chants, which is rather humorous.

A few things that some people don't understand over there:

1. Raid gear trivializes group content.

2. The more trivial content becomes, the more powerful classes with downward scaling abilities (ex. lifetap procs) become.

3. All tanks in raid gear have been doing AE groups for a long time now - the videos are nothing new, nor specific to SKs.


As for dps, some folks there don't seem to understand what classes are actually capable of. In my experience, the pecking order for melee-centric classes right now is:
zerker
rogue
ranger
monk
sk
beast
warrior
pally

I've only played with boxed / alt beasts, so no idea on a main top end guy. Pending a decent beastlord (and perhaps some monk loving), that looks pretty dead on to me.

I can't believe in a game as old and dusty as EQ1 is, the community still has a class superiority complex going on. You'd think by now that the EQ1 community would be working together in harmony to keep the tiny fish bowl of players still happy instead of trying to run fellow players off by trying to get XYZ classes nerfed because of immaturity, trolling, disinformation and jealously. Do these retards realize that nobody is coming into the game to replace the ones that quit these days? Once what is left of the community quits, its game over. Even a large portion quitting would be game over. It seems to me these idiots trying to get tanks nerfed are cutting off their noses to spite their faces.

What a shit hole.

While we are doing much better DPS as a class, I don't feel SKs are the least bit overpowered. I think this is the balance point we need to be at.

As you read through the thread, you notice a lot of things occurring:

1) People not understand how core mechanics of the game work, like riposte.
2) A lot of weighted, biased parses.
3) People not knowing how to interpret parses
4) People wasting my fucking oxygen with their existence
