Theorycrafting Lite - a look at SW:ToR tanking (Part 1)

by Kiylie on 01-03-2012 at 09:02 AM
I know I said this post would be up sooner than now, but the holidays and the push to 50 have gotten in my way. In no way will I take credit for the majority of the information contained within this post as I am no mathematician - most of this information was found over at www.sithwarrior.com. All of the information pertained herein came from a primer by Gankstah that I will attempt to put into "plain english", but some of it was copied directly to save time (why reword something that's

What makes a good tank?

by Kiylie on 12-20-2011 at 11:46 AM
I've encountered this question a lot, and what seems like an easy answer is actually a complicated series of concepts. I will list everything, in no particular order, that I believe makes a good tank. To some this may be common knowledge, but to an aspiring first-time tank it might be enlightening.

1. Gear - a good tank always needs to stay on top of their gear. Unlike dps (or to a lesser extent healers), a tank can't just slide by with mediocre gear. Our entire usefulness is

So you want to be a slayer...

by Kiylie on 04-06-2011 at 08:41 PM
Disclaimer: Min/maxing ahead.

There has been a hot mess of a debate going on in the Rift warrior forums over here regarding post-patch 1.1 damage specs. I managed to slog through the entirety of that monster of a post and, sadly, come up with very few competitive dps specs. Even after the nerf to BM, it still looks like having a pet is mandatory for pulling the best dps, but 1 or 2 other specs may be close.
(note: BM gains a lot of buffs by itself that other specs only obtain

Macros and You!

by Kiylie on 04-06-2011 at 03:51 PM
I've heard a lot of people complain "Oh my god, I have so many abilities that I don't know what to use and when!" Considering that your average spec has approximately 20-30 abilities that can be used (note that I don't say should be used), managing them can become a problem. Luckily for us, Trion included a built-in macro feature much like WoW's to help us out. At the end of the combat macros section I will post a few other useful macros that everyone should check out.

Given to an officer who has gone above and beyond for the guild. This award is given to an officer who has gone above and beyond dedicating time and effort to make this guild a great place.
Kiylie was brought on to the SWTOR Empire team to help be a raid assistant. SW:TOR was the first implementation of our Raid Sub Charter and we wanted to make sure we were addressing the needs of all our members who were looking to raid, from the most casual to the most hardcore. As one of our more hardcore members we approached Kiylie with the hope we could take her raiding energy and really focus it to help drive forward not just in content but in establishing a balanced raid culture within the guild.

She did this and more. What started out as an assistant role quickly turned in to her being a real leader and driver of the Empire chapter of Aureus Knights. Kiylie delivered an applause worthy volunteer effort and really provided a great raiding platform for not just the Empire chapter but the SWTOR chapter as a whole. Kiylie brought ideas to the table on event management, and raid strategy but as time went on her role became much bigger within the chapter becoming a primary driver for SW:TOR for the guild.

Kiylie will have a lasting legacy that will define our approach to raiding and events going forward.

On behalf of the team Kiylie THANK YOU for everything you've done for the guild.
