View Full Version : Tank Guide and skills

November 9th, 2017, 02:30 PM
Hi Guys, I’m a tank in-game and I would like to share my build for tank so that new players have some guide on how they are going to build their tanks it’s not the best build cause you can make different builds here, but I recommend this for as a guide and not You have to do this kind of thing or else

Str is used for damage- seeing that we are tanking its not really necessary to add points to this.
Dex is use for physical attack power Magic attack power Phy Def and Mag Def- its kinda like a .25 to each kinda skill that I've seen
Vit adds +5 hp and Phy def – you could go pure vit here if you wanted a pure type
Int Magic damage – Not needed for tank
Wis adds 5 points to MP and gives you magic def – you could add some points if you find it frustrating that you use so much mp so quickly, but the m def inst worth it since your gear adds so much m def.

Full Vit
Vit with 50 points in Wis
Vit with 50/50 points in Wis and Dex (this is what I did and I kinda prefer it since I like to solo my quest some days.)

Human Path (extra critical damage of 5%, We could argue that it “helps keep damage” but you need a good weapon for that crit damage to even account for)
Elf (Dodge rate of 5%, Dodge isnt bad; the whole oops it missed me kind of life)
Either race will do.

Part of tanking like any other role is mitigating damage. this means you lower the amount of damage enemies can do by burning them down as quickly and efficiently as possible, which further means every member of a party, EVERY member, needs to be able to deal as much damage as is possible for their level and class.

that's only one piece to tanking, there's a lot more, just soaking damage isn't enough to protect your group.
