The Wrathstone DLC Game Pack and Update 21 base game patch are now available to test on the PTS! Read the full patch notes here:

Let’s be honest, have you ever queued as a fake tank or healer, but you are a real dps?

  • idk
    Of course. Toss on a Rstaff and regen, CP or BoL and GTG. The rest of the skills go to DPS. If I did it as a tank a taunt is easy to get from the Undaunted line. Most dungeon bosses, even on vet, do not require a full tank setup. I have tanked in tank armor/weapons, but had DPS CP.

    I have had some DPS as tank, they had a taunt, but did DPS. One died a lot but would, not because of my heals, he just did not get out of stupid and got one shot a few times. Besides that, we got through ok.

    A true fake healer, one that is incapable of doing any heals, it probably not so good in most GF groups. I have cleared even DLC dungeons without a healer in the group. We just avoided damage and shielded.
    Really, idk
  • FloppyTouch
    Yes, but only on normals, vets I switch to just dps. I play a mdk use to b tank I can heavy attack with destro this aggro boss to me then I can load out dps and use embers to stay alive. I can solo every normal dungeons minus the ones where u need two people.

    In vets I rather have 3 dps that no how to stay alive and one awesome tank.

    Pug vets you don’t know what ur getting so best to stay to ur role.

    Reason why I que tank and dps for normals easy I’m not waiting 10-15 mins to do a 10-15 dungeon I no I can solo. If I know I can solo it why do I que? Bc it helps out new people get clears makes the run even faster and more drops that I can ask people to buy from.
  • Alpha-Lupi
    Never have, never will, never even thunk it because I know my own roles based on my characters setup (in which case of my werewarden, I use a tank/dps hybrid consisting of Pelinals aptitude, 3 piece dreugh king slayer until I procure briarheart gear, & Mighty Chudan for the added health & resistances as well as replacing Ice fortress with Winters Revenge to use in unison with pierce Armor & Leeching Vines.)

    Tips for how you can be an ESO Community Hero (Written and last edited by ZOS_GinaBruno at precisely 8:56PM, March 30th 2014.)
    Below are a few recommendations and tips to help you become one of the very best community members — a veritable hero — on The Elder Scrolls Online official community forums. These recommendations and tips also reflect the ESO core community philosophies.
    • Agree to Disagree: We have a very diverse community of individuals and groups who have a variety of interests, opinions, and backgrounds. Just like in every-day life, you will not agree with all the opinions you encounter here, and that’s okay. It’s perfectly acceptable to disagree, but please do not put other people down for their opinions, ideas, or suggestions. In most discussions, there is no right or wrong, just different angles, opinions, and interests.
    • Be Civil and Respectful: Being civil and respectful goes a long way, especially when involved in a heated debate. It is possible to be civil and respectful, even when you strongly disagree with someone. Please remember that everyone on these forums is a real person, like you, who is also here because they love The Elder Scrolls Online and want to talk about it.
    • Enjoy Yourself: Have fun, start interesting discussions, and participate in the community activities and discussions that excite you! You, our fans, set the tone and culture of this community. We’re here to listen, help, and foster that growing culture. We want you do enjoy being here as much as we enjoy having you!
    • Ignore Baiting: Sometimes, another community member will attempt to bait you into a response. Usually, this is to elicit some sort of negative or emotional reaction. Please try your best to recognize when this is happening, and ignore it. You may also report it to the ESO Team if the post or thread is violating our Code of Conduct.
    • Post in the Appropriate Area: Please do your best to post threads in the correct area of the forums. We will move any threads that are posted in the incorrect area, and leave an expiring redirect attached to them. We understand that everyone wants their thread to be seen and gets replies — posting them in the proper section is the best way to make sure that happens.
    • Report Violations: If you notice that another community member is violating our Code of Conduct, please report the post and leave it at that. Do not reply, try to correct their behavior yourself, or tell them that you reported them. We understand that our community members are generally just trying to be helpful when they do these things, but they only serve to exacerbate the issue more often than not.
    • Share Constructive Criticism: We want to hear your thoughts and feedback on The Elder Scrolls Online, negative and positive alike. Please consider how you are posting criticism. If you want to share suggestions or constructive criticism about The Elder Scrolls Online, please tell us about it. It is possible to be negative, respectful, and constructive at the same time. When submitting feedback, consider whether or not what you’re posting will be something the Dev Team can use to turn into real change — constructive negative feedback can be a powerful tool to help us improve the game. Remember, we really do want your feedback!
    • Use the Search Function: Please help us keep discussions as consolidated as possible by using the search function before you create a thread. This will help you to identify if there is already an ongoing discussion about the topic you’re interested in talking about.
    • Welcome New Community Members: Please remember that we were all new in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community at one time. Help us foster a welcoming and safe community by being helpful, kind, and considerate to those who are new to our community.
    • When in Doubt, Ask: If you’re unsure whether or not something is acceptable post or thread material for the official The Elder Scrolls Online community, please feel free to ask a moderator or member of the ESO Team. Simply send us a message — we’re here to help!

    Eso Forum Community Rules. (Adhere to it at all times & note it is a bit long if you go to view it.)
    Below is a brief explanation of the community rules and expectations for specific topics and situations. If you have any questions about the Community Code of Conduct, please email The Elder Scrolls Online Team at [email protected]
    Abusive Language and Disruptive Behavior: Zenimax do not tolerate abusive language or disruptive behavior on our forums. This goes for abusive and disruptive comments and behavior that are directed at a ZeniMax Online employee and ESO community members alike. Please remember to be respectful and constructive at all times on the forums, and help Zenimax maintain a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all.
    • Advertising: We do not allow advertising on our forums. This includes, but is not limited to advertisements and promotions for the following:
      • Outside businesses and services.
      • Other games.
      • Any venture that results in monetary profit.
      We do not consider the promotion of guilds, fan sites, and fan groups, or the activities and content thereof, to be advertising. Please feel free to let The Elder Scrolls Online community know all about your guild, fan site, or fan group! Simply keep in mind that you may not promote your guild, fan site, or fan group if you are looking to turn a monetary profit by doing so.
      • Bashing and Slanderous Comments: We do not permit the bashing of individuals (including ZeniMax employees), groups, or other companies on our forums. We believe that doing so is neither constructive nor in spirit of our game and community.
      • Conspiracy Theories and Misinformation: We do not tolerate the deliberate and malicious spreading of false info or conspiracy theories about ZeniMax Online Studios, its game(s), or its employees. This does not include honest mistakes; rather, this rule pertains to those who go out of their way to spread harmful or malicious rumors about ZeniMax Online Studios and its employees, or The Elder Scrolls Online.
      • Copyright Infringement: Names and Material: We do not allow copyright-protected names on our forums. Copyright-protected names are typically from well-known original characters in books, games, and movies. We also do not permit discussion about the illegal distribution or use of copyrighted material, such as private game servers or pirated movies, music, and games.
      • Cursing and Profanity: Purposefully circumventing our forum profanity filter or otherwise cursing or using profanity is not permitted on our forums. Our forums have a profanity filter in place for the purpose of keeping profanity off our forums — please help us keep the ESO community constructive and profanity-free by respecting that filter.
      • Demands and Threats: We encourage you to share feedback, suggestion, and requests with us, but we expect all of our community members to refrain from resorting to demands or threats. We believe that demands and threats are not constructive. Threats of real-life violence, in particular, are something we take very seriously and do not tolerate in the ESO community.
      • Deliberately Disobeying a ZeniMax Online Employee: Deliberately disobeying a request or action by a member of the ZeniMax Online Studios/ESO Team is not permitted at any time. As an example, if we close a thread you created and leave an explanation stating why it was closed, you may not re-create the thread.
      • Discussing Disciplinary Actions: If you ever have questions or concerns about a disciplinary action or decision we have made on the ESO forums, or wish to appeal a forum warning or infraction you’ve received, we ask that you please contact to do so (please specify that you are contacting about a forum-related inquiry or appeal). We are happy to discuss and review specific moderation-related actions with you, but we do not allow discussion of any moderation actions or decisions on our forums. If you have questions or concerns about an in-game disciplinary action, please contact to ask about a suspension or ban, and any other support-related feedback. We cannot assist with in-game violations on the forums.
      • Flaming: It’s okay to disagree and debate on the official ESO forums, but we do ask that you keep all disagreements civil, constructive, and on-topic. If a discussion gets heated and turns into a debate, remember that you should stick to debating the post and/or thread topic. It is never appropriate to resort to personal comments or jabs about those participating in the thread discussion.
      • Goodbye/Quitting Threads: We understand that sometimes people will leave the ESO community, and want to post a “goodbye” or “quitting” thread. Generally, we have found that “goodbye” and “quitting” threads have a tendency to go downhill fast. It is our policy to read the feedback in “goodbye” and “quitting” threads and close them, regardless of whether they are constructive or not.
      • Hate Speech: We take the use of hate speech very seriously in the official ESO community, and have a zero tolerance policy. Our definition of hate speech is prejudice or hateful comments, slurs, or statements that promote violence or intolerance toward others because of the following:
        • Race.
        • Creed.
        • Color.
        • National Origin.
        • Gender.
        • Age.
        • Disability.
        • Sexual Orientation.
        • Lifestyle.
        • Any other personally identifying factors.
        Please help us ensure that everyone feels welcome and free to participate on the official ESO community forums.
      • Impersonation: We do not tolerate impersonation of any kind in the official ESO community, and take impersonation attempts very seriously when they do occur. Impersonation includes using a display name, photos, posts, or any other material with the intent to fool people into believing you are a ZeniMax Online Studios employee, another community member, a celebrity, or anyone else you are not.
      • Inappropriate Content and Language: Certain topics and subjects are deemed inappropriate and not permitted on the official ESO forums. Things that we consider inappropriate are usually illegal, extremely volatile or violent, obscene, vulgar, or simply inappropriate for an official game forum such as ours. Inappropriate content on the ESO forums includes, but is not limited to the following:
        • Extreme violence
        • Illegal substances and activities
        • Pirated copyright-protected material
        • Pornography and other sexually explicit topics
        • Real-world religion and politics
        • Tasteless, vulgar, or obscene material
        One specific term we’d like to call out, as well, is the term “gay.” It is never appropriate to use “gay” as a derogatory term.
      • Malicious Links: We do not tolerate the posting of malicious links on our forums, for any reason. This includes links to pornographic material, key-loggers, and browser hijackers, but also includes links to private game server sites, phishing scams, and sites that sell in-game currencies and power-leveling services.
        We greatly appreciate when our community members wish to report a harmful or misleading ESO-related site to us, but please do not do so on the official ESO forums. If you discover a site you want to report to us, please report them at
      • Names in Thread Titles: Please refrain from placing the names of ZeniMax Online Studios employees or ESO community members in your thread titles. Directing a thread at a specific individual, or otherwise using a thread to call someone out, is not considered constructive. If you need to get a hold of a specific community member, please send them a private message.
      • Naming-and-Shaming: We do not allow posts or threads that are created for the purpose of “naming-and-shaming” other community member(s). “Naming-and-shaming” is the act of creating a post to call out an individual or group by name, and making them the subject of public accusation, ridicule and/or shaming. Generally, naming-and-shaming involves an in-game situation and/or Terms of Service violation, which the ESO Community Team is unable to assist with. A certain amount of rivalry and competitive razzing is healthy for any game community, especially one with PVP elements, but naming-and-shaming goes well beyond that. It typically elevates to a point where the subject feels legitimately harassed. We believe that naming-and-shaming posts and threads can be abused and are very harmful to the community. We also don't feel that publicly calling out or accusing others by name on our forums is in spirit of the game or our community. If you genuinely believe someone has violated our Terms of Service, you should report them in-game via the support interface — do not bring the situation onto the official ESO community forums.
      • Personal Information: For the sake of your own identity protection and personal privacy, we ask that you please do not share any personal information in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. This also goes for sharing another community member’s personal information — doing so is not only considered malicious behavior, but it is a violation of our Terms of Service and something we take very seriously.
      • Petitions and Protests: We do not allow petitions or protests on our forums. Due to the fact that both promote the use of demands and replies that consist of “/signed” or little else, we feel that neither encourage nor allow for meaningful and constructive discussion. Instead of using a petition or protest, we recommend presenting your thoughts as a request or suggestion so everyone in the community can discuss it.
      • Role-Play/Fan Fiction God Modding: We support the fan fiction and role-playing communities on the ESO forum, and ask that you please respect your fellow writers and role-players by not “god modding.” God modding is the act of forcing another community member’s character into a situation they have not agreed to. If you wish to involve another person's character in a story or role-play scenario, please respect that individual’s wishes and get their permission first. Failure to do so is considered “god modding,” and is not allowed on the ESO forums.
      • Rude and Insulting Comments/Commentary: We understand that sometimes tempers rise, but it is never acceptable to resort to rude comments and insults. This goes for rude comments and insults directed at other community members, and ZeniMax Online Studios employees alike.
      • Selling, Trading, and Sharing Game Accounts: The act of selling, trading, or sharing your ESO account is a violation of our Terms of Service. As such, we also do not allow discussion about selling, trading, or sharing game accounts on our forums.
      • Spamming: Please do not post spam on the official The Elder Scrolls Online forums. Below are a few examples of what we define as spamming:
        • Posting the same message more than once.
        • Posting messages that are nonsensical or have no real content.
        • Posting messages or images large enough to disrupt the normal flow of conversation.
        • Reposting material that has been removed by a member of the ESO Team.
        Also, please refrain from posting the same topic in multiple areas of the forum, or cross-posting in an attempt to gain further views or replies. This is considered spamming, and the duplicate threads will be removed.
      • Thread Bumping: Please refrain from replying to discussion threads for the sole purpose of “bumping” them. This is considered to be a form of spam because it does not add to the discussion in a constructive or meaningful way. We understand that everyone would like to keep their discussion active and visible, but we encourage you to strive for meaningful and constructive posts instead of posts that consist of nothing more than “Bump!”
      • Trolling or Baiting: The act of trolling is defined as something that is created for the intent to provoke conflict, shock others, or to elicit a strong negative or emotional reaction. It’s okay and very normal to disagree with others, and even to debate, but provoking conflict, baiting, inciting, mocking, etc. is never acceptable in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. If you do not have something constructive or meaningful to add to a discussion, we strongly recommend you refrain from posting in that thread, and find another discussion to participate in instead. It is also not constructive or helpful to publicly call out others and accuse them of trolling, or call them a troll—please refrain from doing so. If you genuinely believe someone is trolling, please report the post or thread to the ESO Team, and leave it at that.

    I can't even believe this is a thing. Why would someone do this and maybe die because they edged out a healer slot? Major derp there.
  • gepe87
    Normal dungeons, as healer, even when i'm leveling dps alts. But if i choose heal (even with one skill:grand healing unmorphed), it mean that I heal. Now I'm leveling a DK, on queue as healer (and nobody complain about it).

    May have done it on the very first attempts at running a dungeon because "what the hell does this mean, that I can attack while taking a blow or two and not dying? Guess so, check DD and tank roles."

    Other than that only with guild mates and only when they clearly want a 4 DD run.
  • Qbiken
    I’ve had enough of this topic

    Getting out of hand these topics. People who feel they´re obliged to a "real tank/dps/healer" just because they selected an option in the dungeon finder should reconsider what they waste their energy on. If you don´t want these things to happen, don´t use the dungeon finder, it´s that simple. Whether you like it or not, people will que for what the hell they want, so expect this when using the group-finder.

    If you kick someone without testing if the current group-setup works, you´re an [snip], no matter what role people selected when using the dungeon finder. Me personally think a DD should always be able to pull a certain number of DPS, if they don´t do that amount I´m not consider them fulfilling their role as a DD. Or a healer that doesn´t use the most basic healing skills like healing springs. Do I kick people for it?? No I don't, because if the current group-setup works and takes us through the dungeon within reasonable time, I´m fine with it.

    Stop taking the dungeon-roles for 4-man content so serious. The reason people que as "fake-X" is because the dungeon-finder is very unreliable and after all updates and fixes, it still feels very buggy and dysfunctional.

    No, never.

    I'm really tired of having bosses chase around my all-medium- or all-light-gear-wearing DPSes. And if the tank isn't taunting, oh yes, I will make the boss run around.

    Also really tired of having to spam my self-heals for the benefit of others (including the healer!) because the healer does nothing but heavy attack with their resto staff. Or isn't even using a staff at all.

    All the time, on normal, on high CP DPS as I know one decent CP player can carry the group. If you know you can solo it there's no problem as you are helping them

    The issue is people saying one thing and not doing it. Or their actions impeding others.

    The issue is not fake tanks or healers but the fact that u don’t need tanks or healers for normal and most vet dungeons.

    That in its self is a game flaw imo. If healer and tank roles are in the game they should be needed or the content can’t be cleared. It’s kind of the point of having tanks and healers.

    No because that's a *** thing to do. It's very inconsiderate of the people who will be your groupmates.

    If I queue as tank, it's because I plan on being a proper tank - taunt, CC, all debuffs, all group buffs, etc.
  • MattT1988
    No. It isn’t fair on the people doing it the right way. People who do this are simply queue jumpers.

    I know people who do, but I personally only ever list as a role that I can appropriately fulfill. (Okay, admittedly, it happened by accident a few times. Namely after we used the GF in a pre-made group for the 25% dmg bonus, and ran as tank/3DD or heal/3DD or 4DD. So I had to change role, and forgot to change back afterwards.)

    I have dedicated DDs (one of each type stam/mag NB/DK/sorc), a dedicated healer and a dedicated tank, and I play the three roles only with dedicated chars. And yeah, it quite annoys me when people in PUGs list as fake tank/healers.

    Of course, in most normal dungeons I could easily "tank" on my Magblade with their powerful self-heal and shields, by slotting a taunt. I sometimes have to do so if I get into a group with a fake tank. But I never list as tank with DDs. Tanking is more than just taunting, standing still with the boss and surviving. On my DK tank it's pulling in adds, using CC to keep them in place, supporting the group with horn/puncture debuff/minor berserk, DK shield, Purge, Vigor etc. You can't do these things as a fake tank.

    Of course, in most normal dungeons I could easily "heal" on my magicka chars by using a resto staff and slotting springs or healing ward. On my Magblade, the swallow soul / power extract group heal often is enough. I sometimes have to do so if I get into a group with a fake healer. But I never intentionally list as healer like that. Healing is more than just spamming some healing skill. On my templar, it's HoT plus burst heal, combat prayer, ritual, wall of shock / charged lightning staff for concussed/off balance, horn, SPC, Worm or Aether, PotL, spears and/or bubbles, etc. You can't do these things as a fake healer.

    Yes ofc, when im Running a 4 DPS group with friends ;P

    well and also when doing random queues, but when I do I can Tank the stuff, or heal it. So "fake" or not doesnt make a big difference in the non DLC content anyways

    I’ve had enough of this topic
    I do queue as all three roles at the same time when I go for normal dungeons. Keep in mind that I only run Blackheart Haven and no other dungeon. I am a vampire magica nightblade damage dealer and I am over max cp. Once I get ported in I ask if anyone needs to do quest and if they rely on a healer (if I'm supposed to be the healer) or if they want me to taunt boss (if I'm supposed to be tank). In 98 out of 98 completed runs for me this week I have not encountered a group where we had any problems with either of the bosses.

    I don't see this whole thing about 'fake tank' or 'fake healer' as long as you can be flexible and effective.

    Yes once - honest mistake after a respec from PvP tank to PvE dps. Qued for vCOA so easy dungeon and also told group to kick me if they wanted a real tank. They didn't and we had a fun run. Always check my role now before I que up :wink:

    I once queued as a fake DPS. It was sooo embarrassing :blush:

    I dunno what I'd queue as on my Heal/Tank I can do both but I wouldn't attempted to do both in a Vet dungeon, I've done a few and can do well ( with friends and on TS ) but wouldn't like to try with pugs and potentially *** people off
