Tanker Build List

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm @Hopestar and I'll be maintaining a build list thread for each Archetype. From here I'll be linking any finished builds from the forums and pm'd to me or pinned on the discord into this topic.

Have a finished build that isn't here? PM me.
Please no theorycrafted (as in never played) builds, I want your used builds.


Other Build Lists:


Brute Controller Corruptor
Defender Dominator Mastermind Scrapper
Sentinel Stalker Tanker Peacebringer
Warshade Arachnos Soldier Arachnos Widow  







Here's the format I'll be using:
Powers - ex. Willpower/Claws/Arctic

Forum Link

Mids Build Link

Tags - ex. 45% S/L Defense, 75% S/L/F/C/E/N Resistances, Solo Friendly (any other things you can tell me about the build)
If you can let me know if it's made for the Tanker rework or not that would be awesome too!

Might I pressure you into doing a Bold, Italicized, 16 point font size for this?


Tags - 60% Melee/Ranged/AoE Defense


For me, the best part of the NO GET HITSU!! build is that you get all that Defense BEFORE reaching for Incarnate slots ...

Verbogeny is one of many pleasurettes afforded a creatific thinkerizer.

Sure I don't see why not since it just has one tag. Though you could pressure me into adding more tags...

EDIT: It's bigger than 16 now and I can't change it without deleting it, thanks to the post format breaking. You're welcome.

My Mace/Shield endgame build.  Sports 50+% positional def, 80% S/L 55+% F/C/T ~45% E/N, not cheap though and no incarnates included.

Here's CMA's current build, it's about as optimal as I can come up with currently.


Soft Capped or within 1.5% of soft capped to S/L/E/N/F/C damage, 30% Melee/AOE, 20% Ranged

Resistance 90% S/L, 84% F/C, 70% E/N, 55% T/P

Endurance and recovery adequate for long AV battles.  I did not build for Regeneration per se, I'm sitting at 196%.  Gaining more regen would have meant sacrificing other areas of the build.
