Tank (also known as a meat shield) is a role a character can assume in a party or raid. The tank is in charge of taking damage for the rest of the group, to keep characters with low survivability out of danger.

This role is traditionally assumed by heavily armored warriors with a shield equipped, but other callings can perform the task.

Requirements[edit | edit source]

Tanking requires two separate functions.

  • Aggro management techniques to draw the attention of mobs, making sure the tank is the one to actually receive the damage.
  • Survivability to last through the fight. This is usually done through damage mitigation and large amount of health, but the same could be done by absorbing or redirecting damage.
