    Default What greater planar essence as riftstalker ?

    So as the topic says, im wodering what greater planar essences is there out there for a riftstalker tank ? Bear in mind that the epic one that enhances guardian steel (or something like that) isnt available for me.

    i tank t2s and wear my full dex/crit source engine. i dont see a reason to change it so long as there is no boss i cant tank. tanking is secondary to me as until they raise our dps i see no point because if there is an available warrior they do it much better if for nothing than they do more than 50% of our dps to single targets (at the lowest and higher if they are paladin/reaver)

    Can't remember the exact name, but I've gotten a bunch of greaters lately that proc a damage absorb.

    I haven't used them as I am bard/dps, so I can't attest to how often they proc.

    But if it's anything like the Waning, it's a pretty good bit.

    I think the one I saw absorbed 250 damage? Getting beat on by a lot of mobs in an aoe pull should proc it quite a bit.

    ***EDIT*** In theory, at least, combining the damage shield greater with a heal-on-hit greater sounds pretty solid.

    My non-tanking 2 cents.

    Both chance when hit, which happens a lot as RS. One increases End and the other procs a shield to add to all your other shields.
