Tanking on a champion was nearly impossible before Rise of Isengard. While the champion did have three stances most players stayed in Fervor and didn’t bother with the others because they were not as effective for the class in nearly all solo or grouping situations. Well this all changed when the class changes happened with Rise of Isengard. After finding out that there are no major changes coming to the champion with Riders of Rohan; I decided now was a good time to make a case for the tanking champion.
