    Default Is my character bugged? Riftstalker tanking issue.

    Hi,

    My rogue is level 60 has 44k armor and 29k health and is getting destroyed by trash mobs in archive of flesh. I literally can't get past a single pull. I also have 245 toughness but I seem to remember that doesn't do anything in normals. Is my character bugged or something?

    I'm using 61 rifstalker 7 rng 8 tac. I can't respec to rift/bard/rang because the trainer isnt giving me the option to reset my souls.

    Go to the trainer in Meridian or Sanctum to respec.

    Are you using tank essences on your planar core?

    I've got a 20 toughness essence in it, other than that just straight stats.

    Are they tank essences, or the DPS essences that have endurance on them?

    29k is just bizarrely low, and I'm trying to figure out why. Are you still wearing ID gear or something?

    That's going to be part of the problem, but even then...

    (In case you didn't see the other question I edited into my post-- are you still wearing ID gear or something?)

    Nope I have the first pieces of infinity stone gear on the chest, shoulders and boots with empyrean sourcestone gear on the legs head and belt. also a tank neck ring gun and sword from SL dungeon drops. All the gear from stones is the tank set.

    edit: i just bought two tank essences which bumped my health up to 31170, still i'm taking way too much damage.

    It's probably a cooldown issue, then. Are you rotating through them?

    Really? I'd never used cooldowns on trash before. We have to do that now?

    It's always been a good idea, but now that we no longer outgear the dungeons to a hilarious degree, it's going to be extremely painful if you try go without them entirely.

    I cover some of the basics of cooldown rotations in my guide (which you can find in my signature), if you'd like a tutorial.

    Oddly enough the only things I can think of that would cause this is either
    1) Not being buffed properly-Guardian Phase + No Constant Deviation.
    2) Terribad healer.

    I'm definitely using Guardian phase and definitely not using constant deviation. I've been with half a dozen healers and they couldn't all be bad.


    Edit: I just put three endurance runes on my armor pushing my health to 33k.
