Brands of the Imperium

Has anyone used Brands of the Imperium for DK tanking? It’s an easy to get set (WGT) that has a group shielding effect. I want to break into vet trials and I know most groups want a tank that does more than survive. I don’t have Ebon Armory or anything like that yet. Was gonna stack Brands of the Imperium with either Hist Bark or Armor Master.

    Not really, tanky stuff goes to improving group dps and some supporting mostly, but might be a space to use it in vas sometime I’m not sure and haven’t tested tho. Many of all these selfish sets and supporting the way like imperium, lunar bastion not worth.

    I used it when it first came out in 2.1. It was more of a gimmick or dungeon pledge set than anything else.

    The proc effect is cool, I can concede that. But the cooldown of the effect is too long for it to be of use on a consistent basis. Alkosh, Dragon, Powerful Assault, War Machine or even Worm are viable alternative support sets.

    It should be easier to farm for Ebon than Brands of Imperium.

    Okay, thank you. It looked like a nice set to provide some survivability to the group but the short effect and long CD leave a 9 second gap. I have a bunch of telvar stones. Maybe powerful assault can be a fast to get starter set.
