Rehn’s SWTOR Tanking Guide for Beginners (and also cheerleading to get you to tank)
This is something I’ve been working on for a while, by way of advice typed and talked here and there. My background isn’t super hardcore raiding. I RP’ed and was never max level in WoW. I frolicked in LotRO. I joined an RP/PVE guild that initially had too many tanks. But when Terror from Beyond initially dropped, I stepped up to fill a missing tank spot and have been tanking ever since. I’ve done everything except nightmare tfb and s&v right now, but more importantly I’ve been paying a lot of attention to tanking and I love it. I really would like to see more people trying out the role. It’s not that hard! It’s fun!
But I’ve never read a guide that I thought “Hey, when I first started tanking, that would have been super useful, even if I now appreciate it. Or I would have liked its simplicity at first, but I also need something to also bridge the ‘for dummies’ to the technical stuff.”
I’ve tried to include some short versions and tl:dr’s as I don’t like to say a thing without saying why.
