So I'm a bit frustrated atm. A lot of groups wont take thanes because they don't consider them dps. Happened twice this morning looking for a group. If you do get taken into a group its because theres nothing else to fill it. Anyone else have this issue?

You talking RvR? If so, I think your real issue will be lack of Det rather than DPS.

Thanes work great in a caster group but a full melee group will be disincentivised to take you due to your rootability. Unfortunately.

Absolutely no reason you shouldn't get into melee based PvE groups as a thane assuming you don't aoe and break mezz constantly. xD

Thane is the anti caster toon, regardless of the group setup. Both Alb and Hib made caster groups to combat the Mid Tanker. AE hammers negate this setup, whether the mids are in a tanker or hybrid/caster setup. We obliterated 4 fg albs at a relic keep the other night, because 1 thane stood on the wall and interrupted nearly every Alb. As far as breaking CC, the Pac should be AE stunning immediately after the AE mez, if the enemy is grouped at all. The Thane is nuking for, what , 250 to 300? with hammers?

easily. aoe dd hits harder than the single target nuke actually and pretty sure also costs less power.

i think most people have terrible experience with thanes... if you master that class, you can cause so much mayhem its not even funny.

If I was playing in group, I would group a Thane any time. They are great in both attack and defense, and if rooted they can still interrupt. And I love to see hybrids.

Thane Hybrid counter would be true IF Static Tempest WORKED properly oO
