    If they make dks tanks only in the content expansion I am leaving
    I am sure a lot of dks feel the same
    So as an aversion an act of love for being a damage dk
    an act to prevent them from making a huge mistake if they make us tanks only
    I am putting up a poll
    If youre a dk, if you want to have more damage and keep being a damager and not a tank and not be able to solo anything!
    Being able to solo anything should not be a ranged only privilege.
    If you want to make dks strong revert your nerfs
    iow give us back 10 seconds dragon hide and 80% armor and resist boost from it.
    give us back lower cooldowns on things like mighty wild swing
    but whatever you do dont make us tanks only
    you will kill the game if you do that

    Since I play on a iMac, it doesn't matter anymore. I've been trying to login for a week and just saw this post: Hello @Liquideee and welcome to DSO English forum.
    Please read the previous posts in the thread. MacOS Client has been discontinued, the game cannot be played on macOS anymore.

    Cheers

    I quit playing my DK a long time ago and play a mage. It was always difficult to find groups for DKs anyway since they didn't do much damage and once a group had a tank they would decline any requests from DKs. My DK usually got kicked from groups because he never could get strong enough to be a good tank. Without groups and not being able to play solo, it is impossible to get strong enough to be a good tank. I used to be in guilds, but even my guildmates wouldn't group with my DK.

    Agreed if youre unable to farm the resources needed to be a tank, how can you be a tank?
    I was ranting last night about solo leaderboards to a guy.
    I mean what would it take for them to realize that it would be prejudice to force dks to be only tanks.
    its even like that now, in short dks have hp ranged players have range, this is why we have hp because we dont have range, thus we cannot afford to have less damage as this is counter intuitive as not only do you need more hp you need to be able to kill faster so that you can maintain that higher hp and not be 1 shot by anything random
    They say the new infernals is insanely hard for dks and for dks only
    I mean theres mages pushing dragan inf7 and killing him in 2 minutes solo.

    BP will do nothing to improve the warrior. :(

    Currently i have a great dk but i want to switch to range class. the only thing that is holding me back is because i cant transfer gems and runes. its already hard for a damage dk not doing enough damage in a group with range fighters can you imagine a tank that no one groups with. my dk uses too much resources, my skills don't cool down enough and in infernal 7 that 11k resist and 11k amor on dragan hide is a joke ..in expansion we need new skill that does fire damage quickly and don't cost alot essence...we also need a berserker skill that makes u immune to negative effect make u move faster and does alot damage

    I don't use tank build from 3-4 years.
    Just now knight have less power and they are less efficient than other class on hightest difficulty because of their type of melee combat.
    2 hit on inf6-7 and you're dead and you receive more than 2 hits/sec and his defensive skill are too slow.
    I struggle more than my companions in all (famr, events, rankings, etc.) and I've a DK with 80k dmg, 190k HP, 2,94 atk speed, 34k armor,
    31k critics, 4,98 critics dmg and 29k resistances without bless/buff/essences.
    Other classes with my items have at least +8k dmg and don't need DK defense.

    But what makes you think that the warrior goes back to being only tank?

    One more thing dk tank is old news... why carry another load in your group when you have mind control, guardian, singularity, thorns, oil and jack in the box or you can just obliviate everything before it even comes close to you.

    Well, I don't think it's happening and dunno if they will make Tanking viable again..
    Or.. change 2H DK built to a "real warrior" instead of glass cannon as it is.

    I've also read something about DKs being a "Support" class which makes me wanna laugh hard while every other class having much better Support skills/Talents on top of Damage superiority.
    IMO being able to Solo just about anything shouldn't be a privilege of any Class.

    Yes, it could still be viable/possible but grouping could be encouraged/more advantageous, like it once was.
