Alter Aeon FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

FAQ 7.4 - What is a tank?

On Dentinmuds, most mobs are capable of dealing damage to only one character. The tank of a group is the character that takes all the damage. Generally, the tank is the one with the best protective spells and highest armor class. It is usually a bad idea to have a spellcaster be the tank. They usually have lower hitpoints than warriors or thieves, and are limited in the amount of armor they can wear. High level warriors (above level 24 or so) may also have special tanking skills that make it much easier and safer to group. See the help page for 'tank' for more details.
