Granted Im pretty low level still (havent been able to log on for a couple days) but when I do get to play I prefer to do nothing but the dungeons, I absolutley HATE all the run about quests. What I have found thou is that Overpower which you can just spam seems to be incredibley overpowered. 1 tomahawk to pull and overpower spam and it seems that the entire group will never leave you. I did Hal last night for the first time and it was the first time a dps peeled a mob off me (he was attacking the wrong mob) but normally even if they are it seems you can still hold them with OP. Has anyone else noticed this? Has there been any talk of nerfing this ability? The hardest part of tanking so far in this game seems to be the less than acceptable targeting system.
There are a few things im no good at, fortunatley being a Dad, boss, lover and MMO beast are not included :)

Unfortunatley money management, sobriety and staying out of trouble are :(

Overpower is meant to generate AoE hate, and if im not wrong, it is the mrd counterpart of flash (since as mrd, you cant spam flash as much as you wish to due to mp issues).

If what you mean by "overpowered" is it being able to generate too much hate, then it is the game design, since without overpower, i dont think mrd can generate aoe hate at all, and that would be fatal to us as a tank.

and yes, this is also why mrd is *ever so slightly* better at aoe tanking in the beginning (lvl15 to 20), although things get even out later on when gld gets more abilities.

Once you become a WAR you will want to use it less often and opt to use Steel Cyclone (which require 5 built up Wrath) or Inner Beast or w/e it's called (again, 5 built up Wrath) to damage + heal self (big heal, mind you).

WAR/MRD > PLD/GLD in multiple add tanking. However, PLD/GLD > WAR/MRD on boss tanking (Stun, more defensive, more heal etc.). Some special instances for example Dhorme Chimera in Relic quest, you only have to fight Chimera without going through lengthy dungeons with lots of adds so PLD is clearly better choice.
