I was running DSM for the first time last night. My current mage build is a CC build. On the very first pull, tank ran out of his way to attack my poly'ed target, and continued to aoe every opportunity he had, breaking all cc.
In EQ1, tanks valued enchanters/shaman/bards for the utility role they played in successful grps. Unfortunatley, I seem to be getting all the tanks whose only experience tanking is WoW BC and beyond which is aoe gank fest, and don't understand the use of utility - debuff - crowd control - and kiting, in order to ease pressure on healers.
So please. let me hear from some old EQ Tanks, and educate the kiddies on how to do things like line of sight pull casters, call for assists on your target, and not play the game of aoe smash keyboard. Teach them how to split mobs from cced mobs so that you can aoe 2 at a time instead of trying to tank 4 at a time. If tanks don't learn the value of utility/debuff/cc characters and how to play with them, then playing a cc class isnt going to be much fun.
