Thanks Hyperstrike, I guess I have a couple questions/statements to maybe help clear up what help I was trying to get.
Surely you aren't suggesting the only viable rad armor tank is rad/rad? I picked savage melee because I hadn't played it before and the tank is sort of a joke about someone's cat that I team with.
I guess what my initial question was/is: having never played rad armor before is there anything that people do differently to make rad armor more survivaible. My focus was to build resists as near to cap as I could (cold and psi being the two that I wasn't able to get about 70%) while also trying to softcap melee def (came up a little short 43.7%) .
As far as outkilling the incoming damage I don't really plan on soloing an ITF or anything I just was shocked at how fast my health bar was dropping I had, compared to what I remember my tanks being like back on live. Granted I played a WP tank on live so its apples to oranges but was still just looking for advice from the masses.
I do appreciate you looking at the build.
