    Default Tanking, Tact?

    Ahoy Rogues.

    Out of curiosity I'm planning on tanking a lil' bit on my Rogue, the question really is.. can I use Tactician as a sub-soul? Not sure if it's viable, maybe I should look more into specs before posting.. but let's be honest, It's nearly 01:30, I've just got in from work.. and would much rather get player responses rather than read something on Riftjunkies that's probably out of date.

    So yes, if it is viable in any way, let me know please! A few posts with maybe some soul trees, macros and general tanking tips and tricks would be lovely! Only ever tanked on my warrior so it'll be nice to get some Rogue-ish insight!

    Thanks in advance all!

    You can, but you shouldn't. It's worse than Bard and Ranger in every way. The difference is small, but there's still no reason to ever use it.

    If you're looking for a tanking guide, check the one in my signature.

    I did use a tactician variant spec for tanking in TDQ/FT/EE for every boss and it worked fine there, but for GA, and I assume the two new 2.4 raids, the bard/ranger is king.

    In regards to a ship requiring a crew, the opinion is divided on the subject. All the other captains say it is, I say it isn't.

    I used this for a while tanking normals http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#Th0/tkGlaGBiGB4/x9g

    It gains:
    1. Curative Engine - Self-heal
    2. Necrotic Core - DPS
    3. Side Steps - CD for trash
    4. Strike Back - DPS, especially with Side Steps
    5. Reprisal - DPS
    6. 10% armor/resist
    7. 10% dex
    8. 5% dmg
    9. 2.5% healing done

    It loses:
    1. 23.5% end
    2. 4% healing received
    3. Fanfare of Vigor

    You could also replace BD with Bard and keep Tact, and you'll only lose 10% end (and 0.5% dmg). I use it mainly for tanking easier content, never tried it in raids.
