    Default The Battle Tank

    Hey guys,

    I was messing around with a few specs and I came up with this

    A class that has a * Insert word of preference * load survivabilty and * I think * can burst a hell of a lot.

    So the main Damage output would be from DoTs and some of the Paladin spells.

    The spells are both Light and Death spells which seems awkward but oh Well.

    I chose vindicator for the Break Free Spell.

    You could switch out with Warlord or Beastmaster for Pve ^^

    So here is the build : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14031925/rif...oul3_talants=0

    Tell me what you think of it, would the damage be alright ? Would the heals be nice ?

    Or should I lean more towards Shaman/Justicar/Warden

    The reliance on DoTs will underwhelm you.

    95 base + 15% + 12% (att power average increase) = 122 dmg spread over 15 seconds (8 DPS).

    Even as an AOE most other abilities will out DPS soul sickness by a large margin. The healing again would only be 122 over 15 seconds which in PvP or PvE is below minimal, BUT if on 5 targets it rises to 600+ healing over 15 seconds which is much better.

    So reaver is nice, but not as functional as other souls in this respect. For instance if you used VK instead you would get much greater survivability, greater healing potential, greater dmg potential, and more debuffs.

    I'm looking for something that can tank, not that much but just more than other, but also have burst damage.

    Get rid of shield of the hero for Shield of the chosen. Otherwise it is a good build. Reverent Protection is nice to have for all your party members including yourself.

    It's not really for healing so I won't get that shield

    I know, i'm selfish.

    I'm looking for a Tankish DPS, so it can take some damage, but can down anyone in 1v1 and in 2v2 it can sometimes win if your skilled, so you just heal, then burst.

    So low heal,Good Tanking, excellent DPS ?

    I wouldn't call that build a tank, but you're certainly going to be tough and dangerous. Its toughness isn't close to a real tank but its damage is far superior. It looks like a 50/50 split between toughness and damage.

    It seems to me like what you're looking for is more of a paladin/riftblade combo. Riftblade has some good burst spells, and a paladin is a real tank due to the higher armour and blocking.

    Start with something like this and then add what you want? Lots of points left.

    I guess now that I see you want low heal, good tanking and excellent DPS my suggestion may not be what you're after, but I still think you belong in the Warrior calling.
