General Info

 

This is a beefy tank build meant for vet dungeons, for fans of dark magic and deadric summoning. Bar one is your golden ticket for tanking, as ransack and inner rage allow you to taunt boss, lowering his physical resistance and increasing yours. Boundless storm also helps build resistance and does some damage. Clannfear and Matriarch make great assist healers and are on both bars to prevent re-summoning. Their also very good for keeping agro on mobs while you keep boss distracted. Although youll mostly be using storm atronach, Ive added Absorption feild for group healing but the silence effect may give your group a quick moment to straighten things out in a hairy situation. Bar two is for more resistance and also gives you and your pets sheilds to help ensure the longevity of your pets lifespan. Empowerd ward works on deadroth as well. I keep defending trait on lighting staff to go with boundless storm. The reason I have it alone with no skills is because deadroth's summon chance are from plain light and heavy attacks. When it comesto pets tanking and doing damage of their own the more pets the better. Dark conversion helps restore magic pool and health at a low cost of stamina. Since tank pretty much sits still you wount have to worry about stamina draining fast for this build, over all dark conversion makes a great safty net. If you insist on doing more damage however, or are in solo play I would suggest deadric pray. This will increase Twilight Matriarch and Clannfear's damage by 55% and Storm atronach by 40% It does give damage boost to deadroth but im not sure how much.This build is simple you stay protected with bound armor, and lighting form with sheild. Sit back, keep agro while your army of demonic minions will help your group rip shit up.

      5 piece Seducer light, for more magic and it goes with Bretons mastery in light armor for extra resistance.

        Also The Lady stone works well with this build too. Breton race and buffs give very high spell resistance. Lady should even out the physical resistance. Tremorscale monster set works very well with the summoner tank as well. Still lets you summon 4 creatures at once. But duneripper burst from ground every 4 sec you use a taunt skill.

    This build convinced me to try a mage tank but Ive tweeked it quite a bit. The pets started to annoy me with stray adds everywhere slowing down the group AoE. Ive tried to find the best gear to generate threat from passive AoE damage to keep aggro on trash. Ive binned the canfear and use empowered ward in its place on both bars. Gear wise, spawn of Mephala’s monster set to AoE adds and slow them down keeping them, in my range longer if they are running after someone else. 5 Peice Thunderbug set for resitance and and extra 6500k AoE every 3 secs. 5 peice leeching set really boosts my self heals and still adds to my AoE. Add in boundless storm every tick and this gets huge dps and aggro on dungeon trash, great fun for the daily dungeon.

    Forgot to add, also lost the Matriarch pet and added power surge for extra dps and critical hits now self heal at 2.8k a second. With all my AoE I crit hit every second many times over. Add in dark convertion also to restore 9k heath and 5k magika off 2k stamina. This version keeps itself up brilliantly. Hit stuff, get hit back, my gear hits them back again, I dont die…
