    I have Guardian Rites (24 DR, 17 End) from the Grim vendor, Endless Horror from the Death RR, and 4x Rigid Stance in mine. I also have a death resist rune on my chest piece. 140 DR self buffed.

    I know the Rigid Stance are pretty bleh, but all the other good tanking DR lessers are block.

    I've found that Warriors are like Feminists. They want equality when it suits them, but the rest of the time they want to be treated special.

    Honestly buddy you're gonna struggle hard on this one. 90% of tank lessers have block on them. Which utterly screws us rogues over. You could go with a dps one with high str and dex for dodge and parry if you really want but, its a bit of a lost cause. Trion hate us no doubt. No fixes, crap lessers, suck it up rogue tank boy!

    You think its bad for DEATH resists, go find me an EARTH resist lesser with rogue tank stats.

    Nevermind, I'll save you some time, they dont exist.

    My max death dmg mitigation sigil looks like:

    Grave Hand - 23 End 16 Res
    Guardian Rites - 17 End 24 Res
    Endless Horror - 23 End 15 Res
    Deathly Hand - 20 End 16 Res
    Deaths Shadow - 16 End 15 Res
    Decaying Memories - 0 End 26 Res

    for a total 99 End and 112 Resist.

    Ignored the block and STR since I wanted to max out Res/End.

    At the moment my sigils look like this ( not optimal )
    Endless Horror (23 end / 15 Dodge / 15 DR)
    Reinforced Planar lens
    Necrotic Rites (20/20 str/dex)
    Flowing Wall (12 dex / 19 End / 15 dodge)
    Moving Candle (12 dex /19 end / 13 Parry) I had 2 in my bank)
    Primordial Faeshard (greater)

    At the moment I dont know if I should focus on
    1. str/dex/DR
    2. end/dodge (with useless resist)
    3. Buying Crappy lesser like Rigid Stance / Guardian Rites (17 end / 24 DR) / Decaying Memories ( 26 DR )

    It's not happening unless you give up significant avoidance. The difficulty there is that any heavy death damage in HK is accompanied by heavy physical damage. Riftstalkers are inherently better off against magic damage than physical. I went for 2x runes, Icon of Eternal Darkness and Endless Horror / Guardian Rites. Beyond that you're either going to sacrifice significant HP or significant avoidance, or both. If you really want the resist, go for the Warrior / Cleric essences with the most End on them and maybe the Fleeting Curses from the Perdeen expert rift.

    4x rigid stance
    1x fleeting curses
    1x guardian rites

    i agree with previous statements though. there are tons of warr/cleric essences but very little rogue ones. in the case of earth resistance its completely non-existent. really wish they would fix this... its as bad as the warr/cleric having all those "on block heal" trinket/essence choices yet rogues have none for their dodge.

    stop tanking Hk and wait for the promised changes in 1.6

    Your wasting your guilds time they are better off using a expert (and no master) geared warrior.

    best line ever! Clearly cloth/chain/leather is usable by all but plate is war only because they want to set warriors above the rest. WAR 4 LIFE!
