Hybridization and warriors

I’ve never been good at being just a tank or just a DPS warrior. I always get itchy. I think this is because I came up during original raiding, when you needed a variable amount of tanks for every fight, and you could easily have four or five tanks on trash but only two (or […]

An Alternate View
