    Paragons, Champions, Beastmasters and Riftblades can't tank anything even remotely difficult. DPS Clerics also can't heal for shit, that is the point. When you build these specs, you are focusing on a DPS role that requires specific gear, weapons, and sigils that will prevent you from effectively tanking or healing. So of course you should be able to stay competitive with Scouts and Mages.

    When Paladins, Void Knights, Warlords and Reavers can parse that high while tanking, then you'll have a point, but right now you're just whining. DPS warriors have slightly more mitigation and health, which almost never makes a difference, DPS warriors and priests get 1-shotted by boss criticals just like the scouts and mages do.

    The devs have even been quoted saying they expect all 4 archetypes to be capable of competing on raid DPS. Get over it.

    i'm confused as to why that's even a remote possibility. all troll'isms aside - if you wanted to do pure dps why would you roll a class that's always is and always will be considered the tanking class?
    1.) Plate armor isn't going to stop you from getting killed in under a second if you have aggro on a mob.
    2.) Riftstalker is an excellent tank spec, if not the best (bar caster/magic damage mobs).
    3.) You're a fucking moron.

    Because they can't tank anything with DPS gear.

    It's like why should a Rogue be able to when they can spec for tanking too! Or why should a Mage, because they can spec for healing!

    All I'm saying is that they shouldn't be as/near effective as a specifics class intended role. It's cool that we can switch things up - but a warrior outparsing a mage in similiar teir gear should never, ever happen. The same holds true for a mage outhealing a cleric.

    A hypothetical but say I could build my rouge out to be a badass blink/evasion tank. So much so it becomes the prefered tank because healers don't have to heal as much. Wouldn't that piss you guys off, even just a little bit?
