    im saying Its to early for me to know.. since all i see are masses of rogues at my level . (37)

    They have been good tanks, when they dont Teleport under the ground and everyone die.

    Though.. seems they can use another spell that teleports them back to a set location to get out at least.

    I like Cleric tanks

    (although my other slot is a justicar spec so I may be just a tiny bit biased )

    Riftstalker was mine. Simply because the guy in met in Beta was a riftstalker tank with 8k hp at level 39.

    I was impressed

    Justicar, by far. They seem to be able to even out some of the more intense damage spikes with their own abilities, so it feels safer and more predictable.

    Oddly, warrior tanks like paladins have been the worst. Riftstalkers come in second place.

    Situational but i love the warrior tanks to heal. in large numbers of normal mobs the reaver is phenomenal as they have so many self heal from the group of enemies around them that I barely heal at all unless we hit elites in number.

    Boss tanking the Paladin does a great job surviving so I dont need to just spam heal.

    I am lucky to play with some very good tanks but i see people getting a mixed feeling from the riftstalker because unless they keep certain buffs up most of the time (with short times on them) their survivability can vary so much. Of course if you get a good rogue tank then yeah they are great too, as long as they dont get themselves stuck in the scenery anyway.

    Being a tank myself I haven't seen the other tanks in action. What is the riftstalker specialty and justicar specialty?


    Reaver: Huge aoe trash potential. I am only 28 so I still waiting for creeping death to make this even sweeter. I MT'd as reaver in DD and the spider boss was easiest as reaver vs when I tried as paladin.

    Paladin: personally I love the lore and thought of a righteous holy tank but only use this on single target boss fights. I also miss the shield charge when on my reaver.
