Gear and Item Set Info

 

5 piece Torugs pact 

5 piece footman

2 piece bloodspawn 

infused on big pieces and sturdy on small, reinforced on shields 

Infused on swords to get most value from crusher enchants 

 

General Info

 

This build is really good in all vet trials, the main purpose of this build is to get the most out of your crusher enchants with bonuses from torugs pact and the infused swords, while not losing any mitigation with footman. This is primarily a main tank setup, although it can work for an off tank as well, it allows you keep a 100% uptime on the bosses debuff, ( with torugs and infused swords crusher enchant has a 1 second cooldown) while also maintaining resources and mitigating damage. the enchant debuffs the boss by up to 2500 phys and spell resist, nearly 1000 higher than a standared crusher enchant which stacks with elemental drain and ransack debuffs. Pair this with a good war horn rotation and the groups dps will rise significantly. You will have to cordinate with your healers and off tank to maximize the groups support (ex our healer runs Ebon), but even on its own this tank stands up to all vet trial content

 

Champion Point Tips

 

This is really player prefference, there are multiple CP setups for tanks, it really depends on what you want. Do you want higher magicka recovery or reduced cost? How high do you want your resists? All these things you want to take into account and find what works for you

    Nice guide but it’s missing stat distribution. How much of which stat points should go where?

    Using this! A stats distribution would be awesome, but looking at the skills in going to want mostly health and Magicka?

    What runes do you use? Sorry if that’s Union question or if I am not reading this properly.
