  1. I don't care about taking credit for the build. What I meant by "my build" was the build I am using on the character. Next time I'll make sure to credit you.
  2. So Last week I finished off my Dark/Fire proc tanker and I am very satisfied with the results. He is not the tankiest tank but he can solo +4x8 missions with ease. Now I am really looking forward to creating another proc tank. This time I'm going with Ice/Spines because I like the idea of the damage auras and the easy aggro generation. I came up with a build but I'm new to tanks and I'm not quite sure it will be tanky enough (Most of the content I'm planning on doing will be +4 Missions/TF's or incarnate trials) Here are my questions: 1. Is high defense and modest resistance enough for most high level content considering defensive incarnates? 2. I don't think I need Ageless for my Destiny slot so what is better: Rebirth (heal) or Barrier (Def+Res)? 3. How big of a difference would Agility or Cardiac make defensively? Would it be better to go with Musculature for more damage? 4. Energy absorption looks amazing for defense and end management. Would this resolve all endurance issues? 5. Do I need taunt with AoE's flying everywhere? My goal is a build that can do tons of AoE damage and has decent survivability Current build theory: Here is the build I use on my Dark//Fire This is a slightly modified version of a build made by josh1622 Here is the original build by josh1622
  3. This is my Dark/Fire build. It's actually insane how much ST and AoE damage you can do with procs on the hard hitting abilities. If you're fighting a pack of 54's, most of the time only the bosses remain after your 3 AoE's go off. With 90% res to most damage and a full HP heal every 8 seconds, all 3 of the last abilities in Dark Armor are not at all worth taking IMO.

  4. I'm trying to roll my first tanker and I can't seem to find a build that fits my play style so far on this forum. Things I would like: 1. Lots of AoE damage (assuming procs are the best way to achieve this) 2. Good at holding aggro (does not have to be the best) 3. I would prefer animations that are not painfully slow 4. Very tanky I'm thinking Rad/Dark, Ice/??, or Dark/?? I don't care about cost. I've seen plenty of builds but not many proc builds which I'm assuming are the best for damage. I don't know the math on proc builds vs normal builds so if someone could explain to me the pro's and con's of a well made proc build that would be great too.
  5. I love making AoE focused builds which can solo large groups of mobs quickly. My level 50 toons are: Human form Warshade Spines/Fire brute Rad/Bio scrapper Archery/Ta blaster Fire/Psi dominator Tri Form Peacebringer (probably will respec to human only form) I just unlocked the final incarnate slot of my Fire/Rad sentinel and I would say it is one of the best ATs I've made so far Pros: 1. The epic power pool This is the main reason why this build works so well compared to scrapper/brute -Sentinel's have access to one of the best epic pool selections of any AT because of the AoE immobilize + AoE PBAoE ability (in this case fire cages/firesword circle) 2. Tanking -With the right IO sets this build is very close to my Rad/Bio scrapper in terms of tankiness and we focus alot on recharge to make sure meltdown has a short downtime. -This build has: Softcapped melee defense and 30% S/L defense along with very high resistances (75% res to all damage except ice and psi while meltdown is up) -Built-in mes protection, a heal, an absorption shield, and plenty of regen. 3. AoE Damage! -2 massive damage nukes with a 25 sec CD (ground zero and inferno) -3 short CD AoE's (fireball, fire sword circle, and fire cages) -perma hasten, 174% recharge + Spiritual core paragon 4. Single target -3 short animation moderate-high damage single target abilities which just melt everything. 5. End management -With no incarnates and 7 toggles this build can easily stay at full end while spamming abilities all day (gamma boost and particle shielding are actually insane) Cons: 1. No terrorize or confuse protection (not common forms of CC) 2. The dreaded sentinel target cap -All abilities can only hit 10 enemies at a time -To compensate for this I use fire sword circle and fireball to kill off ~5-7 minions, then inferno and ground zero to nuke the bosses and LT's -Also you should be able to tank (and immobilize) most mobs all day so you can just sit in the middle of a group and spam abilities till everything dies Video: Build: | Copy & Paste this data into Mids' Hero Designer to view the build | |-------------------------------------------------------------------| |MxDz;1454;694;1388;HEX;| |78DA6594D96F524114C6E7968BB50B5DA50B5D2994D202B7A03EB8C6A8B5466D931| |6D45782ED8837C10B0236F6D1475F8D0951EB96B8BE98E8DFE1FAA656DF8DDD3471| |4BB4E261BE233661C2CD8FFBCD9C996FCEB9339317C6EA1F1FBEB84F680D0753895| |C2E1E9356DEB464AA3A36634A6B468A52ABA6C7F5AF271E4D5849396B8C9B59193F| |4041F9FE72D7983C2DAD9C34A28959339137D3567C7FF66C3A2B9AA7D2E99471C49| |A3373E6293365E6E7EB9532211319D34AD6AA975846CA5987FA3B6E26CFD08C49D7| |A18C396394A7574B4ED28A323BDF419E06E9C9F804B7A22E160843BAA8BA0EEA05E| |655B0E91AF8C94FD4548C4D7CB50911A1986F60C70FD0F5137C324C4379AC76B94A| |695BDCE86B5B013D05E8E7C88B0D5EECB667BAD2363D67BE0037BF64BE026B5F834| |BE4C9CEEBD8D9938B3D75B3A76EF694F5A126A575AADFF03C6FC1FA45E63BB0E13D| |18FA009EA7D81AAC63AFB90BDF0DF7C09647BCBF87E0D07D70E401B84C1EEB10ABD| |56DE57CB593D0A30B071972A04F389C9AEAFB42E31BA15535C6A0352D21AE659973| |4871CD1CD7CC714F29E7ADACB57A84D206689C93D77606A0B53135EA6B473E447B9| |19AB091D2C9D9ECE46CF672F67A399BBD9C5D9DC676B1CB2E76E03D863EEFBA50BB| |5BA19DF4F0981E76EEFE0846A288B94499EDE3AAF4ED45C6FAF73077307782EE5DE| |0F06E7095E61FE0D8813BA894E736F306E85D007D37B9A2B7C02B7E9C84D209183C| |8EF97C2798535CC96966149C23AF7E8EF107D94B886970D5C3CC0858A080007B0C1| |4A105057210FCC5EFBFC1D03A38FA075CA35803F9D30DAEC328D76594EB11F9CE0C| |209F1EAA4B98BF82F022E6E9D6CBA79D7EA54A8F5428E10A2552A16CAB50B657281| |315CA94CED706299A526A9ACA27BEB8525BBE298416C297B9F65FD3B4A39ABA7DDC| |27B1BFD58DE3D56C9F372A7CA74CB712A015FF028755FD61| |-------------------------------------------------------------------|
