    Default So who turned out to be the better main tank?

    Hey, i havent really played much since launch but im curious which calling turned out to be the top main tank? Or hopefully this is the case(Although it seems unlikely) are they all pretty equal?

    it really depends on the situation.

    the strengt of warrior tanks is that they can do everything and switch around.

    justicars have a bit of self healing and group healing they can add to the fight.

    riftstalkers have a very high mitigation. but a big starting spike.

    they all work some are just harder then others to play.

    Riftstalkers are best in mitigation for sure, plus they have a lot of defensive cooldowns a kiting skills. They have AoE aggro issues as times.

    Justicars are pretty beastly tanks, with group healing and stuff. They are not that good on magic bosses tho.

    Warriors, no threat problems ever. They are more spiky tank then others for sure. Low amount of defensive cooldowns, which is very frustrating at times. Most flexibility if you are willing to respec. But I think they suffer from having 4 tanking souls as you have to spread your points and get a lot of redundant/useless abilities to get the "meaty" talents.

    So I would say Riftstalkers best, then warriors and clerics. Still unless you have heavy magic damage boss, cleric is better than warrior.

    Another of Trion's sad misgivings...

    Interestingly enough the calling with 4 tanking souls is the worst tank in the game ... go figure

    Funny enough they have nerfed warrior tanking several times already.

    And Rogues with loads of dps souls are lackluster at that.
