Gear and Item Set Info

 

I use 5pc footmans2 armor (3jewelry). 5pc spectres eye, 2light, 1 heavy armor. (Including 1hd and shield, both bars). 2 pc Engine guardian. The reason for spectres eye vs hist bark which is very viable... the 5 pc bonus instead of being during block... is a constant 20% being a magicka build tank so its either proc'd or on cooldown. Most tanks prefer permablock (boredom). This build has suprisingly decent dps as well as plenty of survivabilty. The reason my main bar has refreshing path instead of absorb magic/defensive stance... its the HoT and procing of shadow barrier. On normal pulls and in most situations you will not need the extra block mitigation to survive. In boss fights i will swap out inner fire for impale. I do not have razor caltrops or i would consider them vice inner fire as well... then replacing structured entropy for impale against bosses. But as a tank... your not asked to dps anyways. Survivability 1st. Min/max 2nd. Never use flawless dawnbreaker. Its just nice to have for extra passive dmg if the party needs it. Or put veil of blades on both bars since you will be able to spam it. Also extra hp for being slotted isnt bad either. As for champion points.. reduce magicka cost / decrease spell damage are the two most important. Increased healing is nice. And 12 % spell crit... more spell crit more healing.

 

General Info

 

Never go cheap spend the gold on some tri stat food and potion. Also v16 prismatic gems make tri stat avaible on your v16 armor take advantage of this. The extra extra health and magicka means more survivability. And stamina shouldnt be a problem with this build anyways.

    I saw the same build, the creator is aerieth and the name of the build is “shadows preserve us”!
    Coincidence???

      They’re different. Shadows preserve us is stamina based with a few different morphs. Nice try tho troll.
