Tanks are one of the four archetypes in Warhammer Online. They will play a close combat support role. Though they are slow, they are able to sustain high amounts of damage. This makes tanks ideal in RvR for protecting allies and taking on multiple amounts of enemies.

Noun: TankEdit

Tanks are heavily armored and well-protected front row party members whose role is to draw the enemy's attention (aggro) and attacks towards themselves with the use of taunts and other abilities as well as absorbing damage. They block their enemy's way and as such serve as meat shields for the spellcasters and ranged attackers in the back lines behind them. They usually engage foes with powerful melee attacks.

Tanks are most effective in group combats, able to deal with multiple opponents and reduce damage dealt against allies. They are strongest against lightly armored melee careers, and weakest when facing ranged attacks alone.

Verb: to tankEdit

Standing still and taking a beating from enemies instead of running away or kiting. Solitary tanking is often used in group PvE situations to make the support character's task easier (only one person to concentrate on).
