    What? No they haven't. They even went as far as testing one out. It's still in the game code (type /recast enrage) they just never went through with it, and this was long before they had players testing things so they didn't feel the need to announce they'd given up on it.

    This.

    Pld just isn't as effective a tank as it used to be due to DDs having become extremely powerful. Especially in abyssea obviously. A provoke ability for pld isn't going to fix that at all. It's also not even needed as tank for most things these days.

    I know this thread is a little necro, but this is why PLD is broke. PLD is not even needed. Why have the job in the game at all?

    DDer with temp items, atmas and a decent WHM can tank just fine. The thing is DDer have their own version of tank in an indirect way, it's called kill it before it kills you and a PLD can take a long time to kill even EP mobs without good gear. THF on the other hand I just go out and burn mobs and rarely if ever get hit.

    Agree 100%

    Often times it is not the fault of the PLD for loosing hate, but of the DDers or Nukers for just full attacking on everything. I see this often in pickup groups, but rarely in parties formed with friends. Thief works to keep enmity on the Paladin, DDers keep a watchful eye on enmity generation and TP feed, and Mages buff/enfeeble, and strike with a nuke at the right time.

    Aside from a few specific NMs with hate resets, rarely does the Paladin actually loose the hate, and for those particular NMs, we generally don't use a Paladin as a tank XD

    Don't hate the game, hate the players!
