I didn't want to clutter up the Riftstalker tanking guide with this question, so I'm posting it here. I'm fairly new to Rift, having joined during the Raptr event in May, but I've done tanking in several other MMOs.
I'm currently in Storm Legion experts; technically, I'm overgeared, as I have 400+ hit and 400 toughness, but I'm still getting hit like a truck by mobs. I'm keeping my buffs and debuffs up but I rely heavily on using my cooldowns.
Is this normal for rogue tanking? I've never had to rely this heavily on cooldown abilities in prior games and it worries me that I'm doing something wrong.
Stats wise, I have ~42k health, 43% damage reduction from armor (that sounds hideously low), 4% parry, 22% deflect and 3% dodge.
I appreciate any insight or suggestions. Thanks.
