Make heavy viable for this game.

You can't compete in PvP with heavy. The healing/shielding can out pace heavy's damage. Light and medium builds can also out pace heavy's resources. With the 50% damage reduction you can't spike damage people when they are cc'ed. Heavy needs a strategy to win.

MSA is the same. You can never have the damage and sustain you need.

Heavy should be an option to play the game and its not. This needs to be fixed.

    So does my friend. He needs a little help from me though, but he accepts to tank in pvp and let me finish them off. When he wants to kill he switches to medium and I heal him. Cause with medium he drops like a fly

    YES, please. Basically full heavy armour and sword+shield should be the only seriously viable alternative for a tank, and you should be able to do useful DPS in heavy armour and a two-hander.

    well whats then the reason for medium armor if you can do usefull DPS in heavy? there is none.
    heavy beeing the most usefull option for dmg mitigation i´m perfectly fine personly i would rework the entire 50% dmg reduction cap if the person is wearing 7 heavy pieces 75%, 50% when wearing 5 heavy, 35%cap when wearing 5medium and 25% cap when wearing 5 light. and give heavy armor reduced resource cost for support abilities(like aoe cc to annoy enemies bringing them to attack the tank) but no dmg as that´s not the purpose of the tank armor.
    spelling and grammar errors are free to be abused
