    Default Riftstalker Help

    Hello everyone. I was just wondering if anyone had tried tanking in dungeons with the Riftstalker class.
    I have tried tanking In IT and Deepstrike mine. I was lvl 24 at the time when i tried tanking IT and it seemed pretty good, but was a little overpowerd with the level i was. I tried doing deepstrike mine later. and it seemed that i was hardley mitigating any dmg, even with all defensive skills active. I did end up making it through the entire dungeon without dieing, including the last boss with a main healer and offheals. Was this normal for anyone else?

    Riftstalker tanking is very viable but requires a lot of management on the part of the Rogue. I wrote up a very lengthy post on the subject that might help. It can be found here: http://forums.riftgame.com/showthrea...and-mechanics.

    Well, if you made it through DSM with no deaths, I'd say you did a good job.

    If you want to post what your build was, I'm sure people can give advice based on what they see.

    In general though... keep your absorption shields up as much as possible, and investing your extra points into Blade Dancer or Bard is recommended. Remember that you have potions and cooldowns to use too.

    Yea, i cant remember 100% what my build was. but rogue tanking was so much fun with all the plane shifting and stuff. i would like for this to be my main for the release. But If i go into the game and then find out that its not a viable tanking class, i would rather play something else.
