why not do it, i do. just to see what is happening. the gap gets wider if you do not use any of your abilities. you can also take your aa of the mitigation off with sword and board. or the 2hs aa. then watch your hp. you would think you are in disney land with the spikes and valleys you get. the level 1 comparison is an illustration of how well your sk does not tank. you say that he can tank without support then eliminate the support that you have. go just tank. without heals you would die as well and quicker. a warrior is just that, he spits on mobs he curses them he holds agro and he makes the most efficient use of his armor in the game. because thats all he does. im not a mindless warrior i been playing one since the game began including with my beta copy cd of the game. i know how they operate i know the use of my discs and i know sk's have oh shit buttons just like we do, mine outnumber yours which means i get to live through more screwups than you do since i refresh quicker. now all this being said when i first got kiss i tried to let it play for me that did not work. i never let kiss or melee control my warrior because while it can, you come back to a lot of deaths.
