    Default Quick Titan Guide

    This for the new Titan soul, the guide is all about tanking. It's might be bigger than what I normally do, however tank requires so much more addition information.
    Though warning mistakes could be present.



    Best Spec:
    31 Titan, 8 Berserker, 0 Typhoon


    Tanking:
    Spoiler!

    Gear:
    Spoiler!

    Stats:
    Spoiler!


    Buffs:
    Titanic Spirit
    Font of Retaliation

    Masteries:
    Level 61 - Indomitable
    Level 62 - Totemic Power
    Level 63 - Ursine Tenacity
    Level 64 - Elemental Affinity
    Level 65 - Ancestral Force

    If you do have other Tanks in the raid you could change Level 62 Mastery Totemic Power to Shepherd's Care. Though only the tank with the highest Guard should be using the Shepherd's Care Mastery.

    For the Level 63 Mastery Ursine Tenacity you could change this to Feline Reflexes so that Crystalline Lance hits 3 more targets, however you have to make sure they are behind your current target for any of the aoe to work.


    Standard Rotation:
    You should always start a fight by using Crystalline Lance for both single target and aoe.

    Keep Crystalline Lance, Essence Strike and Earthquake active no matter what you are doing.

    Using Crystalline Lance, Earthquake, Upheaval will grant Aftermath reducing you damage taken by 6% for 10s.

    You can keep Crystalline Smash on cooldown, as every little helps and it provides a shield too.
    Summon: Lifewarding Beacon also provides a small shield though it your choose to use it on yourself or allies.

    Upheaval is perfect for trash/adds as it stuns them for 3s, so you want to keep Upheaval on cooldown.

    Using Creeping Vines is optional as it's only a dps gain, or if need to generate extra threat on the enemy.
    Titan's Fury also increases your damage, however with the Totemic Power Mastery Titan's Fury does provide a spell reflect on use.


    Abilities you need to know about:
    Spoiler!

    Macros:
    Use the Essence Strike macro to dealing single target damage to the enemy.
    While keeping Crystalline Lance on cooldown.

    The Earthquake macro is for dealing aoe damage to the enemy.
    You will need to keep Essence Strike active.

    I assume you have Upheaval on its own button.

    No mention of Titan's Fury becoming a spell reflect with 62 Mastery Shepard's Care?

    Focus of Nightmare is NOT the best sigil you can get. Sigil of Sanctuary from HM iGP is best. Only if you cannot do HM, is Focus of Nightmare the next best option.

    I've fixed that bit of information.

    No mention of Titan's Fury becoming a spell reflect with 62 Mastery Shepard's Care?
    I've added that.
    It might save Mages from going into Dominator if you knew the spell can be reflected.


    I've also updated the rotation so it's not just saying use these macro, the macros say that part, it say what you should be doing.

    31 Titan is a must, like any tank soul.
    4 Berserker gives 12% Health.
    4 Typhoon gives 12% Dexterity which increases your Guard, Block and Dodge, you could do 8 Berserker however Typhoon has ranged abilities.

    If you are taking about 8 Dervish you lose out on 12% Health & 12% Dexterity for 16% AP/WD and 10% Cunning damage, which gives you Squall a pull that lacks a taunt.

    31 Titan, 4 Berserker, 4 Typhoon is the best for tanking currently.

    It's nothing personal man, you just don't have a correct guide. You have a "Quick Guide".

    Decided just to remove Crystalline Lance from the macro so it's not being actively used, so it just triggers when at ranged. Meaning you have to use Crystalline Lance on a separate key and maintain the buff it provides as well as the buff Aftermath.

    As the class was just released it's properly going to be a bug which has to addressed by Vladd best thing to do is report it in game via a bug report after you failed so the details can be looked at, or post in the bug thread and hope it gets fixed next in the hotfix.

    This is a point that is less relevant to Titan specifics, but more towards Tanking 101. WHY do you completely neglect mentioning how Guard is the top priority until you cap it?

    Now that Magelo's Soul Tree Calculator has been updated with Primalist I've updated the guide with the spec and ability links

    Something that will happen to all Primalist guides soon too.
