    Lightbulb Riftstalker Runes and Stats

    SO......Just hit 50 last night. Haven't done any experts yet, just revamping gear so i dont get roflpwned.
    I know how to tank very very well and always get complimented on it. So i am not here about specs or L2P or anything. I have studied that immensely and have my spec and know my rotation.

    What I want to know is what stats to aim for for tanking T1, T2, and raids.

    I know 50 toughness for T1 and 100 for T2...so I read anyways. But what about hit or dodge or parry or anything else.

    also

    What runes should i use, and where should i buy them. Like does Arcane hand have an OP head chant and Icewatch have an OP leg chant (just examples)

    I know about the stillmoor food +10 end.
    If all of this has been posted elsewhere could you please post links. I may have overlooked it all.


    right now i am using...
    stam to chest and boots
    dext to shoulders
    dext+end to pants
    strength to helm
    AP to weapons
    crit to gloves

    then my Collectors edition rune to weapons and +10 end food

    Also

    any major items i want to try and get asap?
    trinket or ring or weapon? something?
    Heard something about a trinket from first boss in AP...

    and what about essences?
    I am using ones that have dropped for me.
    Sigil of five
    GREATER
    +55 endurance proc for 15 seconds
    AP proc
    LESSER
    3x End + death/fire/water resist
    dex/str/death

    any input?

    Any help is appreciated. I can port around everywhere and talk to all the vendors myself but if someone knows that would be great.

    I would suggest filling a sigil of the five with as many endurance essences as possible to start. Also, try to do an air raid rift for the on proc aoe threat essence.

    I use the +end proc from an Expert Air raid (+68), but used a +55(ish?) until then. Along with it, I just used 5 lessers (you can stack a lesser in the greater slot). So it's the Rigid Stance from... Iron Pine, I think. +7 str, +8 end, +8 dodgex5 for +35 str, +40 end, +40 dodge, and the greater end proc.

    Unfortunately it doesn't seem like any other lesser I can find can really replace those, at least not ones easily obtainable. Maybe with the blues from rifts being BOE again some will pop up. Something like 10str/10dex/10 end or higher, or something.

    Countess in FC drops a nice tank ring, called Trigger finger. First boss in AP drops the T2 version, I don't recall the Trigger finger stats off the top of my head, but the AP boss stats are +10 str +10 dex +18 end and some hit. Until you can get access to these, I used the Order of Mathos rep ones I blieve, something like 9str/9dex/13 end and hit.

    The Matron in FC Drops a nice trinket that procs damage and extra threat, but I've not seen it. I have a trinket from Rictus in RD that has a chane to proc a 495 heal on a melee ability use that's sufficed for now.

    As for Runes, I use:

    Helm: Iron Pine Enchant (11 dex / 9 end), the Scarwood one isn't bad until then.
    Shoulders: +9 end/+9 dodge
    Chest: +8 end (is there a higher for this? I haven't seen it), if you need toughness slot toughness here until it can be replaced by end for the content you're running.
    Gloves: +15 Crit, but I'm still wondering if the Parry is worth it, however I haven't seen a better than +8 to parry?
    Legs: +9 end/+9 dodge, but I'm close to the Dragonslayer enchant (+12 dex/+9 end).
    Feet: Endurance
    Weapons: +10 dex to all.

    There are belt enchants as well from Dragonslayer rep. I believe.

    Edit: And the best essence is http://rift.zam.com/en/item/AD98B76D...leeting-Curses but I'm assuming they are random Rift drops, and BoP, so Gl getting 4-5 of them.

    It's a drop. There's one that procs off any physical attack out of expert water rifts as well. They seem to proc pretty often.

    Ah, right forgot belt. I use the +8 end from Runeguard right now.

    Order of Mathos has the top tier one. Dragonslayer has the top leg enchant (arcane/dragonslayer).

    Unless that's from an expert Rift, the Essence should be BOE now. They changed them back to BOE with 1.1

    Dragonslayer leg rune can be foregone IMO, it's not that great for the rep you need. There's an AP/18hit rune (don't remember how much AP it is) you can use on legs as well as a 9end/9dodge, both crafted.

    I'm at work so I can't check the name, but there is a +15 toughness rune (enchant) you can get for your chest. I got the recipe out of Ex-IT on Saturday night. Handy, since you can only get about 38 toughness on gear prior to T1, so if you can get the rune (check the AH!) you can make the minimum toughness requirement for T1 tanking.

    That item is very far from the best essence. For the best tanking essences run as many raid rifts as you can. All of them can drop great dex based tanking essences with 18-20 endurance. Also, with the sourcestones from the raid rifts you can buy great tanking essences sold from Tue rift merchants in sanctum/meridian.

    I currently use the 9end/9dodge (as stated previously), but I'm working on glorified regardless, the 12dex/9end will come in handy not only for the tank set, but for DPS as well. Hit isn't an issue right now, but if it is I'll worry about when I get there. We're still just running T2's atm and haven't gotten the numbers to do the Raid content, yet.

    I lucked out and did Icewatch before they nerfed the Rep gain on dailies, so I'm glorified with Icewatch and Dragonslayer shortly (19k to go or so), and then I'll be doing the Mathos dailys. I don't have it in me to do more than one set a day, though.

    "Run as many Raid Rifts as you can" requires you to be able to run as many as you can, and for those of us who missed the souls and plaques boat (1 soul per boss, 15 plaques per dungeon completion) we're going to be a bit behind the curve.
