    Default Advice for tanking/bard support?

    I recently dinged to 50 and have been looking into a tank and support-role spec (each separate). However, I am having difficulties in my tanking spec (BD/RS/Bard). I am able to hold aggro, but I take too much damage.

    I haven't tried bard yet, but am eager to. So I ask the rogue forums, are there are sort of guides, advice, or specs/rotations people would be willing to share? I will give you cake!

    for tanking http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...EItIuqdRkkR.xb is a good build and what i aim for and really there is very little room for variation in tanking build on rogue due to imp. guardian phase and even more importantly imp. rift guard gets better the more pt you put in RS tree bard could work as well as an off.soul but the dmg reduction from ranger/dodging stuff from BD makes those the better choices imo.


    for bard im aiming for http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M....EIdqiqskqz.Vb, although here there is room for more variation i bet, you could go less bard and up an offensive soul to be less support and a bit more dps where my version is strictly support the RS and NB for extra dmg to cadence and thus more healing from cadence as well (as it heals for same amount that it damages)


    keep in mind im still "only" 45 and don't claim to know everything and am particular not 100% sure on bard if it is best way to go though im pretty certain on the tanking part, since that what i enjoy most on my rogue and do in most of my dungeons
