This post about Huttball on the forums caught my eye, in which the OP details why the defending tank should not be passed the Huttball. Here’s a snippet:

In a situation where you have a tank actively supporting you as the ball carrier, lots of cool mechanics happen. Half of the damage you take goes to me. You are also taking significantly less damage to begin with because if I’m smart enough to Guard you, I’m also smart enough to put Taunts on the bad men who are trying to kill you. You will survive far longer with that ball than what would happen if you pass it to me.

And, even more true is the last bit of the first reply:

And for what it’s worth, please don’t throw to the scoundrel unless he’s wide open and yelling for the ball from the top platform. Seriously. We have no movement-boosting abilities and our best defensive cooldown makes us drop the ball.

Like s/he said: Please, please, please stop passing Zayn the ball, guys. Please. Seriously.

To the OP, I adore you and your tanky wisdom. Now please throw Guard on me because I somehow have the ball again. Sigh.


About Amanda

Amanda is a 20-something flailing gamer. While she loves MMORPGs, the company in them often triggers flare-ups of her social anxiety. Her all-time favorite games include Everquest Online Adventures, Eternal Sonata, the Animal Crossing series, Katamari Damacy, and Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. She lives on junk food, and her favorite books are equally trashy. She doesn't believe in putting two spaces after a period, but she does strongly believe in the serial comma. Unfortunately, she has a penchant for starting sentences with "and" and "but;" hopefully you won't hold that, or her excessive use of semicolons, against her.
