It may not be the BEST to duo box with, but I bet it's the most fun.
I haven't responded to this thread as he seemed to specifically be interested in a 'Tank' class as his main and seems to have chosen a great combination to go forward with.
That said I could not let Dandrewk's comment go unchallenged...
MOST FUN = RANGER
All the 'fun' of tanking along with incredible diversity of options for leveling.
I would like to hear an argument that ANY other combo has more versatility in leveling up.
FAST fighting as rangers HAVE to kill quickly or die.
TRACKING - this in my mind is the most important skill in the game as I am an information oriented player.
Rangers are THE best all-around farmers.
Gearing paths are incredibly varied for you style of playing.
I get to kill Dragons
I can xp and farm in ANY PoP zone with ranger-cleric combo.
You get to get dirty in the fighting if you choose to and tank OR you can range kill at will.
Rangers are CRAZY fun to raid with.
Anyway, ALL in good fun I think SK/Shaman is a great choice and you will have much fun and versatility with that combo.
