If you find that post, I would appericate it. Though once again tanks need a great initation, bad news two tanks really don't have them. Shen, and Rammus. Unless of course you want to use your one CC skill, which means after that they tend to go after the carries.

My real hope was just to have the main tanks, but as of right now its not turning into that.

For example in Jun's post he mentions Udyr, Sion, and Gragas. They have one or two CC, that can really help. Though imo they are better off being an off-tank and doing damage.

Right now I'm going to go with my own idea of what a tank is. (Sorry Searz no damaging tanks now) So it looks like I'm adding Maokai, and Galio atleast.

Maokai can do a great amount of damage. His level 3 burst is insane. Even if building tanky.

Shen and Rammus don't have initiation? What?

Rammus's initiation is ****ing terrifying and Shen's 2.5 SECOND AOE TAUNT isn't too shabby either.

Saving CC to help your carries is great but what's better is zoning 3 enemies at once while your team mops up.

Okay got me there, looks like I still have alot to change. *headdesk*

@Lugignaf so does Amumu without AP. Maokai has atleast two CCs.

I have to agree with the additions. I myself play Cho'Gath a lot as tank, and trust me, he's good at it. Even if you would only consider it off-tanking. But with only a Rod of Ages he will easily reach 3.5k hp with feast, good and reliable cc + a large hit box, perfect to soak up those skill shots. Even without trying, cho'gath will make sure that no skillshots (unless they pass through units) will hit your carries.

Also the ability to very quickly end a carries life and silence + knock up people will draw some enemy fire, because leaving cho'gath alive would be a huge mistake.
