This New World Tank Guide has been created for PvE Tanks, to help coach you on your way to becoming a successful Tank in The New World MMO.
New World is one of the newer MMO games on the scene and as with every MMO game, there are a severe lack of Tanks! In New World, the playstyle of a Tank is very different to other MMO games due to the combat system having no class variations, the limited available combat abilities and the collision with enemies.
There are some challenges when it comes to playing as a Tank in New World, this game was initially intended to only be a PvP game. A lot of the PvE content was released late in the development and after launch. There are plenty of PvE challenges to overcome and as is the case in MMO games, if you can master the Tank role, you have no problem finding a group to complete that content with.
Before you get started with Tanking, please take a little time to have a read through this guide to hopefully give you an idea about what Tanking is all about in New World
This guide is basically a summary of everything you need to know, whether you are new to New World or just new to Tanking, you should find all the basic information you need to start Tanking.
For a good general build for a Tank, make sure you also check out our New World Tank Build.
