    Default Questions heading into group\raid content

    Dumb questions for this board, but no where else to ask.

    After playing solo to 95, I've begun to turn my attention towards group content. I've inspected a few different zerks on eq2u etc, and I see one of a few things that I'd like to ask about.

    Primary\Secondary - DW or Sword and Board. Assuming you're doing group\heroic content as a tank? Now what about 3rd tank in a raid?

    In raid when not tanking (Trash) - DW or 2h (assuming reckless here)?. During named fights I assume you'd be Sword and board just in case\add tanking.

    I guess what Im asking is - is there a threshold in which a shield is necessary? I did a few of the easier coe heroics just DW\Dstance, but im guessing that's no bueno in raids.

    Sorry for noob questions, but im a noob.

    my zerk doesn't even have a current shield in his bags. use a lvl 90 shield once in a great while in bg's but i usually feel dumb when i do, so i dont for the most part.

    always DW on a zerk for damage and for tanking tbh unless you're MT and even then just keep your shield on your hotbars. unless you're talking about the mobs that hit really hard but tbh zerk isn't going to be tanking those imo, it will be a brawler for the most part.

    i spec as defensively as possible on my berserker for the most content, it's amazing and i never die... ever. Although, some content is so trivial that i just run around trolling in DPS spec/reckless but if you're dying you might as well just increase your group's surviveability by tanking like you should.

    I just want to point this out, if you get into raids your #1 priority is to keep mobs off of anyone but other tanks... don't be running around finger popping your asshole thinking you're a DPS while you're dying 999999 times, everyone hates that guy.

    Was looking at most recently posted in threads. Saw this post from you Zelox, and laughed IRL.

    Particularly 'don't be running around finger popping your asshole thinking you're a DPS while you're dying 999999 times, everyone hates that guy.'
    Not fair, Darkon is one of those ultra-uber god players. You can't use him as an example of the general population.
