    Default [4.5] Hybrid Tank idea

    Probably most have a variant or so but here it is anyway

    Slightly Better raid heals
    Spec 1: https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#...x2liyac8|XYXMg

    Better Mitigation (best fights with lots of adds)
    Spec 2: https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#...kxUB9h54|XYXMg

    Essential Gear:
    Final stage Eternal
    Medicos Crystal

    Legendaries:
    Planar Rejuvenation
    Shadow Blitz
    Cadence
    Motif of Regeneration
    Call: Razorbeast (Spec 1)
    Curative Engine (Spec 2)

    Buffs:
    Guardian Phase
    Planebound Resilience
    Fanfare of Vigor
    Fanfare of Power
    Anthem of Glory


    Macros:

    Builder
    #show Cadence
    cast Call: Razorbeast
    cast Power Chord
    cast @focus Cadence

    Note: If using spec 2 remove cast Call: Razorbeast from macro

    Finisher
    #show Coda of Restoration
    cast Guarded Steel
    cast Coda of Restoration
    cast Motif of Regeneration

    ST Taunt
    Instigate
    /raid taunts %t

    AE Taunt
    #show Mass Instigate
    cast Mass Instigate
    cast Rift Disturbance

    Intercept
    #show Acquittal
    cast @targettarget Acquittal
    /raid intercepts %t

    Interupt
    #show Planar Disruption
    cast @focus Planar Disruption
    e interrupted %t 8s cd

    other abilities:
    Apothecary's Will - lvl 65 mastery_can use planar variation if you prefer
    Verse of Purity - AE cleanse
    Planar Refuge - 30% dmg reduction
    Defer Death - Anti-death shield
    Virtuoso - Coda persist
    Shadow Blitz
    Shadow Shift
    Shadow Stalk
    Coda of Jeopardy - in dungeons of where no support is


    How to play

    pre-cast all three motifs > this will increase your HP and stuff then

    Spam: 5 combopoints>finisher

    For more healing
    With target, spam Builder macro faster -

    when no target available

    5 combo points>Virtuoso>Finisher macro

    can shift to increase crit rate (Spec 1 only)

    Talking

    Adamant Resolve is just too good to not being taken.

    Happy to see some numbers since it's always har to tell on specs running a tankbuff

    St taunt macro may misses a couple commands.

    [notactive anthem of Glory] - not sure if it works for you but in a raid you may end up rebufffing and overwriting passive runspeed buffs quite alot . ?

    Planar conservation on a bard might be handy benefiting so much from the eternal bonus and Rift Stalker spells (Rift disturbance) being quite costy

    In what situations do you see that one ?

    One of my guildmate used a similar spec on BoS.

    it's really good on all kind of boss, since it provide nice healing as well as bard buff as a tank.
    Here we used it on last BoS boss some times ago.
    It's able to solo heal the fight i think , so you won't need any other healer and run full dd setup.

    Made the changes to the masteries

    Wasn't aware of [notactive anthem of Glory] chance to overwrite passive run speed. Removed it from the macro

    Removed some commands from taunt and intercept macros

    Updated the masteries: Ascended Biology to Adamant resolve. Apothecary's Will to conservation.

    I do agree rift disturbance takes lot of energy, but at most 2xRD is enough to gain aggro back from mobs as a taunt. Other than that energy starvation shouldn't be an issue.

    Maybe try some numbers when I log in next.
    Like Hokhmah mentions it provides the bard buffs (just as tactbard) and can solo heal a few bosses too. Most of the heals are just from the eternal which if I'm not mistaken doesn't get capped by the tank buff so cadence spam is almost just as good as on full Tactbard.

    Thanks for the reply

    This spec needs some work, with only 40 points in Riftstalker you lose Planar Rejuvenation. Putting 4 points into Tactician only gives a little bit of extra heals, those points can be better spent on mitigation.

    I would suggest a 44/32/0 mitigation build for tougher fights:
    https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#...GA9ikhiy|XYXMg

    This adds Planar Rejuvenation, Wrath of the Planes, and Phantom Blow, and the extra points in Riftstalker give 4% health, 8% armor, and 10% resists. Also the 44 point planar attraction skill is nice for pulling in adds.
