The tanking build I have come up with goes up to lv lv30.
I was hoping for some feedback from some warriors who are more familiar with the abilities than me.
I have prioritized damage mitigation abilities but there are some nice ones in there for both single and multi-target threat.
paladin / warlord / your choice
first 10 points into solid mitigation seemed like a good idea.
2 in aggressive guardian for the needed +20% threat.
shield of the hero - for only 1 point a solid 5% block and much needed 5% hit. later you can choose to get shield of the chosen which drops that hit and gives armor instead.
I had 2 spare points here, I went for...
light's hammer - 1 point to help with those pesky casters. shield charge will also help with this when you get it especially when your snared.
martial shield - don't know how good it is really. if you dropped shield of the hero and the 5% hit it provides you could put that 1 point into graceful under pressure (3% hit). Tbh I don't know how much hit you need for Rift, for now I am going on wow figures which is 5% for now mobs, 8% for raid mobs as melee.
next 5 points into unyielding defense - I am not sure on how much block I will have at level 30 but it seems like its the thing I am stacking and 20% mitigation when I block seems nice.
I wanted to go for vengeful wrath + Karmic resolution for the healing but just did not have the points for it. Perhaps someone has figures of how much healing this provides?
I had 2 points here, I put them in Paladin's Devotion, as well as stun / fear and confuse effects it also breaks disarm which is awesome. The other point into reverent Protection. It does have a moderate cool down but provides total damage mitigation for you and your group. Nice as an 'oh ****' button or on aoe pulls to help your healer.
next points I went down the balance of power + tip the balance route. Again I am not sure on how much I will block at 30 but this seems to provide solid passive self healing to help your healing and oc damage / threat. Maybe good to help get agro on those aoe pulls.
Now this is a lv 30 build so I have not gone any further and put the other points into the warlord tree. Powerful countenance + enhanced dodge seemed like no brainer talents.
I had a choice here where to put the last points. weapon blow seems great. 5 second disarm every 15 seconds looks like a great damage mitigator against melee mobs, maybe even bosses. You also get a disarm on a longer cd in the other tree.
for the other point the choice seemed to be between shield of the chosen (replaces you other shield. proves 5% block + armor buff) or improved weapon blow. I put the point in warlord since this last point also proves Pin target. Looking at these 2 talents now though perhaps there more geared towards pvp, hmmm.
Ok that it. What do you think? Constructive feedback welcome. Sorry about my grammer / spelling etc btw. I am not a native english spe.. ah **** ok ok I am english but I am just lazy / rushed.
