    well with the changes to riftstalker that build won't work end game, I have two main specs I am toying with for end game, I have to play with it and see if 2% less chance to be hit and crit is better than 4% damage reduction and 5% less health

    and

    I might drop one point in strike back for the added point in bard/ranger as well, I am just not sure yet, the strike back will get slightly better agro on aoe tanking while the other gives about 1-2% more survivability, actually looking at it I just cant drop the point false blade is just too good to give up

    even before I was concidering 51 point riftstalker for the last abilities as they are just too nice to avoid 15 seconds of damage immunity is just nice.

    This build is, in my opinion, one of the best tanking builds for the current style of pve. Seeing as how they made it so dungeon monsters can no longer crit you, half of the riftstalker abilities become pretty much useless. Unless they fix it by the upcoming beta, I know I'll be going with this one.

    If the new notes are correct this Rift Stalker with be a hit point beast.

    Riftstalker tree was already heavily changed (alpha servers) so the calculator is pretty much obsolete.

    Overall mixing RS with bard/bd/ranger seems optimal.

    problem is you lose out on way to much defense and only gain a little more hp than going 7 bard and 8 bladedancer, not to mention a true bard nullifies your entire build if one is in the group and most cleric endurance buffs do not stack with the bard one.

    Thought about that but decided on the 30 second HOT. At level 48 thats an extra 1300 or so healing I'm getting every 30 seconds.
    Question I asked was is the extra 10% dodge going stop me from taking 1300 dmg in that 30s? Probably not. Just my logic though
