Gear and Item Set Info
Ultra Super Soaker of Never Killness -
Basically with your buffs up you can take 160k to the face and laugh
Plague Doctor -Health all day
Green Pact - Health all day
Monster - Mighty Chudan
set it up however you want.
Hey I do a bit of damage too!
Your armor will act like sand paper, they get hurt by standing too close.
Monster - Mighty Chudan, Ice Heart, Lord Warden,
and one of the following
Embershield, Ice furnace, Jolting Arms, Storm Knight's Plate, Thunderbug's Carapace
Super soak version
is sooooo hard to kill in PvE, you job with this set up is to live, pure and simple, your team will never take a wipe because you can stand there in an insta kill zone and rez everyone, but... your enemies are more likely to die of a thousand paper cuts before being worried about you.
My supersoaker can survive a 160k hit without buffs in place.
The other version is still a soak monster but your armor does most of the killing for you.
Armor Master buffs stack, so if you are using multiple armor abilities, you get the five piece buff more than once.
The Lover Mundus is recomended especially for the lightening versions of the armor to get more penatration out of it.
One last thing...
You can build a Tank Support Healer out of this build too.
Lose the weapon damage skills of any kind except 'puncture', and replace with a 'tick' heal, buff rune or cleans rune and a quick heal.
This should make it so your team can stick beside you, making group healing far easier for your main healer and extending thier resouces significantly.
If you want this version change the Racial type to Breton or Argonian
Consider Vampire for this version mostly as resource management.
Champion Point Tips
Heavy Armor Focus 60, Bastion 50
Blessed 30, Elf Born 30 then the rest split evenly between, piercing, mighty and prcise strikes
Moon calf 70, Healthy 70 and Shadow ward 70
this build is amazing. yeah the super soaker doesn’t do much damage but it lives up to its name. I barely ever die. awesome build
For a bit of a giggle I made mine a wood elf and as short and as delicate as I could visually make it, people would give questioning looks to this little damage soak er but eventually come around.
Cool build and amazing health but how do you gain resources back?
You can have all the health you want but run out of magika or stam and you’ll just be a sitting duck under constant fire.
I’d rather pick a build with around 45k-50k hp but with good resource management than have around 80k hp but horrible resource management.
You might as well go restoration staff second bar cause i see no way you’re getting any magika back once you go dry
The health is sooooo high you could afford to change an enchant here or there for magic recovery, I think I would change my weapon enchant to the magic leach effect and use the heavy attacks that restore magic.
Then have the CP’s that give the perk for heavy attacks restoring magic as well.
What about passives? I’m a new player and i don’t know which ones i should take
Frankly, all passives under each skill you are using, then all undaunted, and the vampire passives if you made one
Thanks. Build is awesome btw. I started daily dungeons and already few player’s told me, that it is nice to have me as a tank 🙂
Hi, im a newbie. Is there a way to change him later somehow to good pvp for battlegrounds, sieges etc?
It’s wonderful to play with this build to play even solo pve, but soon i will want to go and pvp (almost 160cp). I tried to find some nord templar pvp builds, but it is really hard, if they are some, they are incomplete and as a newbie i don’t know how to distribute points etc. And i would like to stay with that one character, because i do not have that much time for grind/farm.
Thanks in advance
First thanks to all those who have looked at this build and messaged me, it seems strange that people really pay attention at times.
DONT KEEP THIS AS YOUR MAIN TANK!
I say again…DONT KEEP THIS AS YOUR MAIN TANK!!!
Let me explain… the purpose of this build was to prove a point, provide an extreme example of what could be achieved with very little in the way of cash and crafting skill and no experience at all. From where I am standing now I use it as a demo of extremism but I would recommend it only really be used for one reason and that is in dungeons where a wipe is not an option and you are shiny and new. You should move on from this as soon as you are able.
PvP Tanks actually fulfill a different role than this is designed for… if I were to salvage something of it I would do the following…
Keep plague doctor and get a set of either Duroks Bane or Crest of Cyridiil (not quiiiiiite as good but similar effect…Durok’s works off taking damage and Crest works off giving it out). Make sure at least 5 traits are Impenetrible between armor and shields. Your role is then to ‘Debuff’ the enemy but running into the biggest group you can find and lay about you till you get killed. (which from all the other sets should take a while) then stay down on the ground for a bit and soak up some alliance points from all the help you just handed out to your team.
I do have links here to my fav PvE tank that all my new guild members are asked to build as their first tank, you can solo world bosses with it!
Or my personal advanced build that I use for both PvP and PvE.
I’m loving this build, depending where I am or what I’m doing I do switch some things but overall this build has caused many eyes to turn. I’ve actually told the healers to pretend I don’t exist and let me hold the boss solo. Do guys handle randoms and watch me take the so called one shot moves without flinching. Thanks for this.
