Stats – All in Vitality, as explained here.https://ryanlearnstoblock.home.blog/201 ... yin-alive/

Skill Points

Taunt 42 if using full EDL, 50 if using DG leggings

The virtues of using 2pcs of DG is nothing spectacular compared to using the pures on a dps, but there is a slight difference. You gain 750 defence, 1250 health(non vitality), and 600 to physical and wounding evasions; at the expense of 250 all resists and 321 armor, as well as 16 skill points. The armor and resist loss translate to about 8-17% extra damage taken, depending on how much armor and resists you already have, and which boss you are facing. So when is the tradeoff worth it?

It helps a bit when you are tanking a raged Dhiothu, where the autos hit much harder than its spells after the x5 rage multiplier at 11k-30k per 1.5 second. Most tanks would not be able to take 3 direct auto hits anyway, with or without the mitigation, so the 750 defence pre lix and super pot can help reduce incoming autos much more effectively then.

Protective Stance 42

Shield Wall 44 with maxed CG Shield

The rabbit's healing scales, but may not be enough to keep up with the other stat pets. Salveroot's ability does NOT affect the user, btw. Reindeer offers a third shield

*the main difference now for pets are the Spirit Versions. They scale defensive stats very well, though exceedingly expensive. Depending on what you are tanking, they all work differently. note that Festive reindeers do not have a spirit version yet...
**the gears are for perm, not hotswap. I do not hotswap as my latency does not allow me to do so effectively. Someone with decent connection could supplement this guide with a hotswap guide.

Pots : Max Health + Defence
Self Heals : Fruitcakes / Resto Potions

Frequently asked questions :

Should I level as a tank?
Save yourself the pain and level as a dps thru till 200, then it helps new players to gather EDL parts while levelling and playing as a tank to learn basic tanking mechanics. Once confident, go full dps again till 220.

Are warriors viable as dps/locker ?
Depending on the lures available, yes warriors are usually viable dps.

Help! I am constantly running out of energy...
Ask a mage to give you energy boost, drink a energy lix, use a rabbit, or eat a gulper eel.

Should I put points in Dex?
You can get enough defence via gears, just go vitality as it powers all your skills.

What if there are more than one tank in the raid?
Be on add duty, and bring a set of dps gears. Bring the player, not the role.

Which shield to use? (besides Dragonlord)
Answer is here. https://ryanlearnstoblock.home.blog/202 ... -question/

Which is better? Pig or Hare?
Do you need a fast heal and energy or Heals over time with vitality?

What is the best (insert slot name here)?
I have underlined the item name in the respective slot in above guide.

Is the new taunt ring better?
Unless you are constantly losing aggro, having defensive stats / skill CD is always better.

Is it possible to become a mix of a tank and dps warrior?
Only for soloing bosses, PVP and for add duty. They are rubbish anywhere else.

Can I be a shield warrior and still focus on dps?

How good is the resist chaos ring for tanking?
It is rubbish.

Should I stack Melee Combat for tanking?
No. Having a bit extra helps shield bash/taunt land more often but that is it.

I want to try out a new build...
This is a decade old game with a skill system that have not been updated for years; there is no new and viable builds.
Integrity is telling yourself the truth.

Re: The Warrior Tank of 2021 *Gears and stats update

Melee combat does not help skills land. Skills land based on the evasions of the mob you are attacking. Melee combat increases the damage of skills and the amount buffed by skills like frenzy, pro stance, and defensive formation. Years ago there was a test done using melee combat rings and not and there was no difference in the amount of bashes landed.
