Simple rule. Doesn't matter what you're proud of, whether it's level cap or level 2. Doesn't matter if it's the best weapon in the game or a mop. If you're proud of it and consider it an accomplishment, post it here.

I'm most proud of being the only person left standing doing Satasha with 2 Marauders and 2 Lancers. I know what your thinking but I was the one tanking suprisingly, kiting and pots helped alot.

So far I am most proud of tanking in the dungeons. My first real tanking run I was working as hard as I could to do the best I could. At the end run the healer made a comment how I was the best tank he has run with, and he didn't even get hit once, not even by adds. Then suddenly the other party members started chiming in how they hadn't taken a hit either, and it was nice to go all out and not have to hold back.

Now that could be because they just weren't that good to pull hate but I am sticking with I am just a badarse tank.................... :)

I got my Marauder to 16 and ready for Satasha. Hopefully we'll get a chance to start running some dungeons today. I almost forgot how much fun it is smashing mobs in the face with a great axe.

I've done my first two tanking runs in all the mmos I've ever played as my Marauder and it was awesome! I did Satasha and Tam Tara and when I finally get back online, it's time for Copperbell. =D

Made it to 18 and successfully tanked Satasha! Had some very minor issues with ranged mobs, but very quickly recovered and the party was happy with me! Debating doing more Satasha, or just diving into Tam Tara.

I'm with Staph, I was able to create after all this annoyance with the early access not working quite the way it should.

My only complaint thus far is the phasing towards "equal" play. The whining and the nerfing has graduated from particular talent/ability nonsense towards this new complete rewrite on what it means to be "balanced". If anything is going to kill this game its the sad state of people in general wanting things their way and only their way. Keep it up and we'll all be pansies with the same number of petals, thrown in an arena and told to pluck ourselves.

When a sudden flood of FFXI nostalgia made me realise how far I had strayed from The Path and my roots just now. Now to wait until I can go home and once more take up the axe.

I killed Cancer last night.

The giant crab FATE not the disease.

I came in when he had about 75% life left and some other guy was tanking him. PGL I think.

I ran in as my WAR and over the course of the next 10% life proceeded to take aggro from the PGL. I then tanked it like a boss standing on this big boulder, aiming it away from the group to minimize aoe damage. Got my soft shell crab pet and rode off into the sunset (which didn't last long because the ocean was like, right there).

Was doing Cutter's Cry last night and the DPS didn't listen to the instructions on final boss (The eye colurs mean different things) so me and SCH DoT kited and killed the last 25% finished with 2 minutes to spare.

My greatest accomplishment is my greatest FAIL! I just learned that you gain attribute points as you level ( i know i know.. read the tutorial tips dialogue right? ). I am lvl 30 Warrior now and have not had any issues with quests/dungons, yet have not spent a single point ( did not know i had them to spend lol! )

I'm not sure if that means the points do not make a big difference, at least in lower levels, or if when i can successfully log in again.. and spend my points..i will be a god!

I love Maur btw.. just became a warrior.. so not sure about that job.. I'm going to try Paladin as well.

One of the DDs in my party said I was better than most of the other tanks he had run with (in Sas, I'm only lvl 20.)

Given that it was my first instance as a MAR (thank you MAR forums for offering plenty of insights :D ) and I was nervous about tanking, it felt like the highest of praise :D

I tanked Odin today, on my WAR.

I came when he was about 95% health, and started doing my thing.

By the time 70% health came along, I had taken threat from the other tanks/dps there (mostly the dps, who ran around like madmen when Odin would come to attack them).

I tanked Odin until about 40%, when I finally died. I held him through all the aggro the other hundred+ players threw at him, even when I was petrified for 10 seconds on end.

But I died. And then he used Zantesuken, and everyone did the right thing and LB'ed him, and he died. We had won!

But because I died, because the god damned healers couldn't do the ONE JOB they had; keep the tank alive; I got a silver. A @#%^ing. Silver.

For tanking Odin successfully.

@#%^.

Did my first dungeon with MRD, although I've run Sastasha a handful of times with gladiator. 2 new players who had no idea what their job was with DPS. One thought he was a tank, and the other thought it was okay to explore the area on his own. The healer and I had a rough time keeping it together, but no wipes and we beat the dungeon.
