Wardens have no ability to tank. Your argument with regard to Scouts and Wardens totally falls apart.

Not only are you factually wrong in their respective roles, but this is flatly not a subjective issue. DPS can be measured and quantified.

Basically, yes. You are a poor DPS as a Priest/Rogue. And not viable to an endgame guild in a DPS capacity. It's a sort of fantasy that your Priest/Warrior, Warden/Druid, etc, combination have parity with highly specialized classes.

"The two biggest issues right now are that Wardens are underpowered and Scouts are overpowered. While I'm not going to argue those points here, they're still highly debatable for some."
Those are not up for debate, they are facts, you just have to play a few hours in high level areas to see how many scouts there are, and then check how many Wardens are there

"Class-balancing and balancing other areas of an MMO doesn't need to be fair; it needs to be fun."
If you are 1 of many players that find PVP fun, I can already tell how much fun you are going to have getting killed over and over by 1 specific class because of broken games mechanism

"A Warden is basically the Elves' Knight"
And you base this info in what?

People are complaining that the classes are not balanced because the character in which you invested time and money is suddenly useless in the end, nobody said that the way to get there isn't fun, but it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth that if you want to continue to experience the end game content, you have to make another character not because you like it, but because the game mechanism basically forces you to keep going forward

@chaosrune A lot of people are all over these details. :) They kind of miss the points of the article.

If you are a human Knight, you cannot duel with a Warden class or vice-versa. Knights are tanks. Why can't you duel-class a Knight/Warden?

Because they are counterparts.

@jeremys
They might be counterparts in the sense that you cannot play Knight/Warden, but the same could be said about Knight/Druid, and that doesn't mean that a Druid is a Tank, I was asking in which Warden skills you base your information, because as it stands, Wardens doesn't have the skills, physical defense, HP, etc. to be considered a Tank class
