Things to do as a tank:

  1. Get a 4 piece set bonus. Always. No matter if it’s 162 or 186 it’s important (same goes for dps and healers. Set bonuses matter and should not be sacrificed for the alternative).
  2. Get mitigation augments. As in: shield, absorbtion, defense.
  3. Use the vendor/ultimate comm gear wisely. That gear has a lot of endurance on it, and not much mitigation. Throw away the armorings and use the mods/enhancements as a baseline. Unless you have said 4 piece set bonus, then in whichever 5th piece you have leftover, put a 180 armoring in there (I personally do the chestpiece since that’s hardest to get from pugs).
  4. Do not use accuracy or alacrity. Ever.
  5. Tell other people who tell you to stack endurance to shove their wrong information where the sun doesn’t shine.

Things NOT to do as a tank:

  1. The opposite of all the above.

Like I really don’t think there’s an excuse for a tank who’s doing pug raid to not have a set bonus. If you’re doing said raids you’re getting a shot at the tokens. If you don’t want to tank immediately, go in as dps, roll on the tokens, then exchange tokens for tanking gear. Like you have options.

This.

Even if you don’t stack your mitigation stats perfectly, favoring them even at the expense of a lot of endurance is going to help your ability to take big hits and survive big time.

The 4-piece set bonus for a vanguard or powertech tank, in particular, is crucial. Less so for, say, a scoundrel/operative healer who can get away with the 2-piece. Never be afraid to use a lower ilvl to get better stats. You can sic me on anyone who tells you that endurance is the most important thing. I will yell at them for you.

If you think what happened to Michael Brown was an anomaly or what’s going on now is a special circumstance, please read Radley Balko. His book, Rise of the Warrior Cop is heartbreakingly educational, and he’s been covering this dirty reality for over a decade. Would you love another reason to hate Nixon? Read this book. It’s also extremely hopeful, showing the many ways we can stop and fix the “us-vs-them” mentality, the cowboy cop can do no wrong, the whatever-it-takes-for-me-to-get-home-safely attitudes. I have convinced the most fervent cop supporters that the system itself is corrupting even good cops by loaning them Balko’s book.

And donate to the Innocence Project (I live in Canada but I still donate because this is super important to me) for the people who survived their initial encounter with cops who don’t even think of them as people, just criminals.

#I am glad this issue is finally getting some attention but sickened at what had to happen   #and the knowledge that this and worse has happened before without the outrage   #because people are so willing to believe that cops are always right   #and there must be some reason or suspicion for them acting that way   #and super hopeful that for once a cop might face justice   #instead of getting put on leave for straight up murdering a person   #then rehired pretty much immediately after   #usually at another precinct so they can keep getting retirement benies from the last place

Status thingy

If I’m unresponsive or not around lately it’s because mr. damonk, my sweetheart, has gotten a job in Halifax and we are super super excited to finally move out to Atlantic Canada. But naturally fixing up our little house to sell (for like twice the price of what we bought super cheap because government cities have stupid real estate) and buying a new one half a Canada away is a little crazy.

But it is so exciting and we are pumped and everything is great! But I had to pack ~70% this past week even though we don’t move for 2 months. So I’m exhausted and yaaaaay.

I am one datacron away from datacron master, which is something if you know how terrible I am at jumping. Just so bad.

And the last one?

Endurance on Makeb.

Will anyone who is good at jumping let me repeatedly guardian leap to them?
