    Default [Tanking] Endurance vs Deflect

    Hi everyone,
    In this thread I would like to discuss Deflect and everything related to Rogue Tank stats.
    I cam across with a problem when started building up my tanking sigil (I'm currently using my dps one). There are no tanking essences that would provide you with more than 20 dex, its normally between 10 and 15 with 20+ End. There are also no essences that provides you with extra deflect nor greaters that procs off deflect.
    So there I am in a situation where I have to lose roughly half of my current deflect+dodge to gain 2-3k HP. Currently with my dps sigil I have roughly 800 deflect & while tanking my deflect rate seems to be quite high as well as mitigation of 50-60% adding on top of that a 15% non-physical mitigation on deflect from a crystal.
    So what is best for T2 Raid tanking? Should I focus on keeping my Dex as high as possible or should I stack up End ?

    Think of it more like this: build end until <hp checkpoint> is reached, and then switch to dexterity. Once you get deeper into HK and get drops, you'll have options. But until you get to that checkpoint hp level (I haven't done HK, so I don't know the number), you lose too much dropping End for Dex.

    i wouldn't tank in HK with anything less than 17k health approx. Those times you don't deflect, you can take a lotta damage. With the recent changes, the deflect numbers are pretty good with about 500 dex.

    Thanks for your replies, started building up max End sigil. I really hope Trion will come up with some deflect essences & accessories.

    You don't need 17k HP at all. With the recent changes, having about 14-15k is more than enough unless you're tanking Lashers, Jornaru, etc. Even still with those, with Deflect slightly above 51% chance with raid buffs, you should be deflecting every other hit.
