    Sorry if this has been asked before, but you are working very hard to gen as much ulti as possible. Why not the Dragon set? That sounds like it would deliver 15% more warhorn and Battle roar.

    It would also allow for a “back-bar” dragon setup so you could front bar 2x endurance, or optionally back bar a dragon staff and front bar 1x vMA sword.

    Not that I expect a lot of opportunity to full-heavy in trials, but definitely in pledges

    Yes , this was asked before but I will answer , no worries ^^

    In a trial environment , off-tank is holding adds and as main tank , you hold just the boss . Most of the time , off-tank will have more ultigen since he will have lots of tava’s favor procs and someone has to run Ebon . Dragon is more suitable on the off-tank most of the time .

    What do you think of the Absorb Magicka skill from the 1h&s skill tree?

    Not necessary for most encounters . Only useful in Rakkhat HM if off-tank is not using guard . Better just use something useful instead .

    Thanks, Liofa. You’ve been a great help.

    Imperial

    That’s pretty cool!

    Pretty good RNG with the catacombs.

    Umm … No . Because of guild reasons . But I am happy to explain mechanics and ways to avoid them if you like :)

    So I respect that you are way better at tanking than I will ever be, but I wanted to provide some additional istats for discussion sake.

    I don’t have a heavy bloodspawn sturdy helm yet, so i’m running medium but that’ll change after a run or two. I must have given them away previously as I have everything else but that one.

    Here are the variances:

    I am a Nord. Just didn’t want to spend on swap to Imperial.

    Enchants: 7 Prismatic (the medium helm since its not final, just has stam on it)

    Shield: Reinforced – I had considered Infused since Prismatic but its hard for me to ignore the CP passive of 75% more resistance on Shields and not stack reinforced with it.

    Chest/Legs: Infused – I had considered splitting Reinforced and Infused here as its hard to pass up the Chest Reinforced, but I wanted to take “full” advantage of the gold prismatic glyphs. (please note its only like 70 more points)

    All Purple Gear – Purple Enchants except 3 Prismatic and 1 Crushing are gold. Eventually as mentioned above there will be 4 Gold Prismatics.

    Attributes, 14 Health, 25 Mag, 25 Stam

     

    With Tri-Stat Food here are the Relevant Stats:

    Max Mag: 18k

    Max Health: 37.5k

    Max Stam: 21.6k

    Mag Recovery: 638

    Health Recovery: 460

    Stamina Recovery: 762

     

    With Health/Stam Food here are the relevant stats:

    Max Mag: 13.9k

    Max Health: 38.6k

    Max Stam: 22.5k

    Mag Recovery: 638

    Health Recovery: 460

    Stamina Recovery: 762
    Thanks for all your help. Again, I want to stress that I understand that you have proved your build works, and I don’t mean to “question” it.

    This is just where I already was, without spending in-game gold to respect or re-enchant.

    Hey . During the last few days , I have been trying out the tri-stat food . I changed my attributes to 59 Health and 5 Stamina . If I didn’t do that , my Magicka would be higher than my Stamina . I had to do it because I am Dark Elf , some Stamina races might not have to do it . Anyways , reason I did this is , with 10k Magicka , I can use 3 Magicka skills back to back and I am out . I didn’t like that and wanted to increase my Magicka . I lost 2k Health in total from Attributes and switching to tri-stat from bi-stat , 1k Stamina but gained 5k Magicka . I think it is a fair trade . Both choices work nicely . So yeah , getting more Stats worked nicely for me . I have around 15k both but my Stamina is slightly higher than my Magicka . I didn’t want to go further with stats because I already lost too much Health for it and not being a race that gives Health is already killing me ^^

    Hi!

    I liked how dare is this build, running away from the common sense. I made my tank about a month and still learning to play with him, so I’m basically doing pledges and farming stuff.

    The question is that it’s visible that your focus here is trials, so is this build viable for pledges, or it needs some tweaks? Or green/ebon + plague traditional build is better in this cases?

    Thanks!

    Hey ^^ This build is even better in pledges because lots of trash packs means a lot of Tava’s Favor procs . Plague + Green build was just for learning the new trial . Now that high end guilds know mechanics and such things , they are no more needed and not being used anymore . So yes , this build is very good in pledges , no changes needed . I don’t recommend it though if you are doing PUG runs .
