    Paladin, Reaver, Voidknight are all tanking souls, and Warlord has some good tanking abilities in their tree. There is a lot of debate as to what is best, but mix and match those and you'll be fine.

    Don't forget about justicar for cleric's and riftblade/bladedancer for rogues. All the tank soul's are good, just pick which one you'd rather use....they are all pretty unique in how they work.

    Pretty much this, there are several tanking builds in the 4 classes, the only class who doesn't have a tank soul, and that's a mage. But I've heard from mages letting their pet tank and actually pulling it off.

    Just try out the different souls and see what matches your playstyle. Like Korncob there is a lot of choice out there, so experiment, and have fun.

    Keep in mind this is a tank, ie survival/threat, not dps build.

    Truth is, no one knows what the best of anything is because no one that's not under a NDA has seen Endgame (other than in videos ^^). So far, all tank souls are good at what they do (at lvl 27).

    I can confirm that a necro/Chloro can easily pet tank an elite their level. A guild mate and I were taking equal level elites with zero down time in B4. Went from 24 - 26 in little over an hour. Certain pairings can level quite quickly this way.
