Remember back in the day they said "Every Fighter class will be able to tank sufficiently." Yea, I do too. What happened? Nerf....

As for a Monk not being able to tank, well DUH. They aren't tanks or ever remotly suppose to be one. They are Purely Dmg based class, if they were ment to tank they would be wearing plate.
Umm why are they fighter archtype? Why not make them scouts?

Here is a thread and what moorguard had to say and you can see all legit compaints

They can tank for lower level mobs but not for group based mobs, Thier AC is not as good as any plate or chain wearing class.

Priest's aren't dmg dealers but can also do a decent amount as a last resort, consider Monks a last resort tank...

your thinking is EQ1...not EQ2


it not suppose to be like that..they made it supposedly that any fighter archtype can tank, so you dont have to sitting around LFG waiting for the warrior..or waiting for a cleric..like in EQ1

Their AC is not about wearing armor..it about avoidance...guardians use mitigation, but monks use avoidance.

I have to say, I don't think monks should tank anyway. They are DPS as others have said. They sit to the side or behind and deal damage while the true tanks (zerkers and guardians) with the heavy armor take damage in the front. Yes monks are fast, but some mobs are fast to, thus you will get hit from time to time. I agree they shouldn't have nerfed as bad as they did though, but it does make sense to some degree..I'm a bit bumed myself as my level 10 alt is a rouge. Might be time to re-roll. At least he's only 10...They nerfed my main a while back but not too bad (25 zerker)...
