Infinitum Tanker (and other types too!) Build Collection


Infinitum

Recommended Posts

I have been a Main tanker since Live and have collected quite a few builds - I have shared them piece by piece here, so I thought i would just put them all in one place, if anyone ever needed them.

 

I rely on not getting killed more than damage output or number of attacks.  The damage I can output on each of them is still impressive though.

 

I even included my Brutes that can also tank as well as any of my tanks.

 

Tanker Armor Rankings IMO **REVISED**

 

1.* Bio Armor - the asterisk is because it takes a measure of skill to play, and build Bio Armor - and  the looming nerf also.

1. Shield Defense - with the upcoming typed defense changes this by default has to be here IMO - and is arguably higher than Bio also.

2. Invulnerability - Still very close to the top, but has slight vulnerabilities exposed a little more with the typed defense change - manageable though.

2.* Stone Armor (QoL reasons)

3. Super Reflexes

4. Dark Armor

5. Radiation Armor

6. Willpower

7. Ice Armor

8. Electric Armor

9. Fiery Aura

 

**Note** If Energy Aura were a tanker set it would be solidly Number 4

 

Also 1-5 are all very very close with the exception of Bio which can do some pretty insane bat kaka crazy stuff.

 

Update 7/19/2022

 

- Updated Melee across the board slight changes to each build - more attacks on some - optimized slotting on others.

 

- Added 2 Bio Armor Tankers

 

- Added Blasters, Corruptors, Defenders, and Sentinels - I am sure seasoned cutting edge veteran blasters might find a few faults with my builds because here again I sacrifice a little damage for a little durability - and lean towards hover blasting - which in light up the upcoming typed defense changes, may not be such a bad option.  My wife honestly loves the ranged ATs more than me so the vast majority of them are hers - I have 3 live and a few concepts.  haha  I like the melee!

 

The most reliable and durable are Infinitum/ Nova Infinitum/ Captain Infinitum/ Captain Starburst/Magnus Invictus/Brikhouse.

 

The most devastating are UltraInfinitum/ Lodestarr/ Novaflux/ Novaforge/ Obsidian Paladin/ FYF-9x Stinger/ EtherealBlaze/ OmegaInfinitum/ JadePaladin/Fulminare/Ikari Kanri.

 

The most fun IMO is Ultra Infinitum - However, Revamped Energy Melee has made any of the EM characters a contender in this category just from sheer play strategy (active target selection and power rotation) and free feel of flow.  But honestly every time in play any of these builds I haven't played in a while it's the most fun ever anyway. lol  Ikari Kanri and Fulminare are now right up there with the fun factor that Ultra Infinitum has IMO.

 

Hope you enjoy these, and hope they help, if you have any questions feel free to ask.  @Infinitum - Excelsior Server

 

 

Hail to the King Baby - Welcome to Tankerdom!

 

Infinitum - Tanker (Invulnerability - Super Strength).mxd ---- My first ever 50 Live and Homecoming.  Really solid. 

Invulnerability/Super Strength

 

Captain Infinitum - Tanker (Shield Defense - Street Justice).mxd---- Ultra Reliable, not held back by not having a heal - cause you usually can work your way out of any situation by outlasting the bad guys.

Shield Defense/Street Justice

 

Ultra Infinitum - Tanker (Shield Defense - Electric Melee).mxd---- Really fun AOE shred anything but a boss build - every 30 seconds you are like a battle ship firing a broadside.

Shield Defense/Electric Melee

 

Alpha Infinitum - Tanker (Electric Armor - Psionic Melee).mxd---- Solid Build, Psi Melee is a high damage set with awesome graphics and effects to go with it..

Electric Armor/Psionic Melee

 

Omega Infinitum - Tanker (Dark Armor - Dark Melee).mxd---- really fun Dark Brawler esque build - very solid with ToF Buff, despite the shadow maul nerf - Dark IMO is the best Resistance Set.

Dark Armor/Dark Melee

 

Absolute Infinitum - Tanker (Ice Armor - Ice Melee).mxd---- Ice Ice Baby - Very solid survivable Tanker build - that can debuff, slow and control enemies as well.  Very fun indeed!

Ice Armor/Ice Melee

 

Turbo Infinitum - Tanker (Fiery Aura - Fire Melee).mxd ---- Triple fire - burn baby burn - will be really good when/if fire gets buffed.

Fiery Aura/Fire Melee

 

Paladin Infinitum - Tanker (Shield Defense - Broadsword).mxd---- I think this will be the final iteration of Paladin Infinitum - he has a shield - he has a sword.  Nuff said.

Shield Defense/Broadsword

 

Magnus Obsidian - Tanker (Shield Defense - Dark Melee).mxd---- A day ago someone posted a build request for a Shield/Dark Tanker - and honestly it looks like on paper it would have awesome synergy - so Magnus Obsidian was born.

Shield Defense/Dark Melee

 

Gadsden - Tanker (Willpower - Street Justice).mxd---- Brawler Build - Very Survivable

Willpower/Street Justice

 

Radianite - Tanker (Radiation Armor - Radiation Melee).mxd---- Solid - multi tiered mitigation now 90% Res across the board except for Cold - also great damage

Ethereal Blaze - Tanker (Fiery Aura - Psionic Melee).mxd---- This one puts out crazy burst damage when paired with Musculature and Assault Radial - combined with Insight strike its pretty amazing.

Fiery Aura/Psionic Melee

 

Eternal Patriot - Tanker (Shield Defense - Super Strength).mxd---- I wanted to see how this pair worked together because I had heard good things - and it is very strong both offensively and defensively.  You just have to watch for the rage - and often double rage crash.

Shield Defense/Super Strength

 

Invictan - Tanker (Shield Defense - Axe).mxd---- It looks like I am testing to see how well ANY set works with Shield - but come on - its a battle axe... and a shield.

Shield Defense/Battle Axe

 

Ikari Kanri - Tanker (Bio Armor - Savage Melee).mxd---- And here we go - this is one ferocious tanker - fast and fluid, daring anything to try to kill him. Ikari Kanri means Anger Management in Japanese

Bio Armor/Savage Melee

 

 

Ultra Theory Crafted Invulnerability Tankers

 

Ultimate 01 - Tanker - Invulnerability - Martial Arts.mxd---- May not be practical - but in terms of what if - take a look at this.  haha

Softcapped Positionals and overcapped Typed - with Standard Invul resists - good luck bad guys!   haha

Quantum Infinitum - Tanker (Super Reflexes - Energy Melee).mxd---- Updated Synergy for Tanker SR - Energy Melee mixed with the recharge seems like a good pair.

Super Reflexes/Energy Melee

 

Magnus Invictus - Tanker (Shield Defense - Energy Melee).mxd---- I can not believe I didn't have a Energy Melee Shield tanker - this is another in the long line of Infinitums.  I had built one for my 16 year old below - Captain Starburst but for some reason never for me.  This one is for me                  (mine's better :-D)

Shield Defense/Energy Melee

Novaforge - Scrapper (Energy Melee - Energy Aura).mxd---- Close second to Novaflux - scrapper version is a slightly more durable.

Energy Melee/Energy Aura

Shield Defense/Energy Melee

Super Strength/Radiation Armor

 

Space Marshal Givens - Brute (Katana - Super Reflexes).mxd---- Ever seen the show Justified - this is my take on a futuristic Raylen Givens - even have one costume with the cowboy hat - futuristic lawman that has an edge... literally.

Katana/Super Reflexes

 

Bulk Rogan - Brute (Street Justice - Willpower).mxd---- Yeah Bruhhthar! Bulkamania lives! - if you arent from the 80s or 90s you may not get this one, but it is still a great build.

Street Justice/Willpower

 

Shadowstryke - Brute (Radiation Melee - Electric Armor).mxd---- My first OP homecoming build - can tank anything with no issues except for Hydra - and even then with incarnates and skill you can these.

Radiation Melee/Electric Armor

 

Granjero 4.0 - Brute (Radiation Melee - Firey Aura).mxd---- My farmer build - efficient as they should be - This build is tested to work well in the upcoming AE changes in the next edition of this game that is pending.

Mr Smith- Stalker (Street Justice - Super Reflexes).mxd---- Street Justice stalker build based on an assassin that has a wife that's also an assassin.

Dual Blades/Energy Aura

 

 

My Take on Controllers that can also Tank  heh

 

Absolute Surge - Controller (Electric Control - Storm Summoning).mxd---- Yeah you Lock them down, drain them, layer your pets and pseudopets, nothing touches you and you kill anything that gets near you.

Electric Control/Storm Summoning

 

Flarestorm - Controller (Fire Control - Storm Summoning).mxd---- Similar to Absolute - but without the drain is a little more dangerous.

Fire Control/Storm Summoning

 

Geo Surge - Controller (Earth Control - Cold Domination).mxd---- Similar to Flarestorm

Earth Control/Cold Domination

 

Positron Surge - Controller (Fire Control - Radiation Emission).mxd---- Similar to Geosurge - these were my take on making Avatar last airbender types - if only we had water control.

Fire Control/Radiation Emission

 

Chronoshift - Controller (Gravity Control - Time Manipulation).mxd---- Can lock down any Group - slower to kill than the rest of these.

Gravity Control/Time Manipulation

 

Phantomic - Controller (Illusion Control - Radiation Emission).mxd---- Harder to lockdown the group but more pets to take them out and get their attention.

Illusion Control/Radiation Emission

 

Shadowraithe - Controller (Darkness Control - Darkness Affinity).mxd---- Very good controls - fun thematic build with lots of evil minion pets to do your bidding.

Darkness Control/Darkness Affinity

 

Stormwraithe - Controller (Darkness Control - Storm Summoning).mxd---- Similar to the one above but with Storm Summoning to do your bidding.

Darkness Control/Storm Summoning

 

Hydro Surge - Corruptor (Water Blast - Storm Summoning).mxd---- Not Really a Controller - but what's a fella to do when Water Control doesnt exist?  Improvisation - this plays as close to a controller as one can get without actually being a controller - is very strong with great attack also.

Water Blast/Storm Summoning

 

Dr Mystify - Controller (Illusion Control - Time Manipulation).mxd---- This is my take on Dr Strange - still haven't actually leveled or played this one, but on paper it looks pretty good.

Illusion Control/Time Manipulation

 

Honeysuckle - Controller (Plant Control - Nature Affinity).mxd---- A Controller I designed for my Wife to play - she wanted something flowery, but deadly - so here ya go!  haha  This one will lock down mobs and shred them - while also supporting the team.

Plant Control/Nature Affinity

 

Lady Glove - Controller (Plant Control - Poison).mxd---- Similar to the one above but this one wasn't flowery enough for my wife, but she still enjoys playing it - Lady Glove btw is another name for the plant in the fox glove family of poisonous flowers - it is not meant to be derogatory - if you look up lady glove in google the first thing that comes up is Digitalis purpurea (Fox Glove - also known as Lady's Glove) (she got reported one time in game)

Plant Control/Poison

 

Deadly Attraction - Controller (Gravity Control - Radiation Emission).mxd---- Similar to Chronoshift but with the debuffs Rad Emission has - this is was my wife's controller paired with Chronoshift when we were duoing those two a few years ago.

Gravity Control/Radiation Emission

 

 

Corruptors - Strong mitigation at range - devastating attacks.

 

Kirk Rogers - Corruptor (Beam Rifle - Time Manipulation).mxd---- My tribute to classical Sci Fi - this one can wick away damage and dish out debilitating damage fairly efficiently.

Beam Rifle/Time Manipulation

 

Ryder Hood - Corruptor (Archery - Time Manipulation).mxd---- A Robin Hood themed time travel character I have theorycrafted for a while now - never actually played or leveled but one day I might get the itch to do ranged again.  haha

Archery/Time Manipulation

 

Wyntertyme - Corruptor (Ice Blast - Time Manipulation).mxd---- My wife wanted a Frozen themed character - so Wintertyme was born.  She is really durable and has a great attack that hits the enemy with slows, and other nice ice features.

 

 

Defenders - Solid Team Support

 

Proton Shock - Defender (Kinetics - Electrical Blast).mxd---- This was my only Defender from Live COH days - I haven't leveled it here - but it is a fun build that makes the enemy ride the lighting - and provides all the goodness that Kinetics does for the team.

Kinetics/Electrical Blast

 

Mediblast - Defender (Empathy - Beam Rifle).mxd---- My oldest son's Healer type - he really loves supporting the team - but is frighteningly sadistic when he uses Soul Storm on the enemy.  This is a really solid team support build - that we will probably put to use in Hard Mode soon.

Empathy/Beam Rifle

 

Life Preserver - Defender (Empathy - Radiation Blast).mxd----- My Wife's Defender from Live COH days - great team support in every way, not much attack but that's what the melee is for.

Empathy/Radiation Blast

 

Kascadia - Defender (Kinetics - Water Blast).mxd---- My Wife's first level 50 on Homecoming - She wanted to play support first and so she played alongside my Brute Shadowstryke - that was a great team - this is a great team support build.

Kinetics/Water Blast

 

 

Blasters - Hover Blasting 101

 

Hyperflux - Blaster (Fire Blast - Atomic Manipulation).mxd---- My only Blaster - EVER haha - but it is a good one - if you can stay at range you can dominate and devastate the enemy with this build.

Fire Blast/Atomic Manipulation

 

Proton Flame - Blaster (Fire Blast - Energy Manipulation).mxd---- This was the COH Live Days pairing my wife had to Proton Shock, my wife liked the build so much then we recreated it even better here - pretty similar to the above build - ranged and destroy

Fire Blast/Energy Manipulation

 

Lady Adira - Blaster (Energy Blast - Atomic Manipulation).mxd---- We are HUGE Babylon 5 fans - so this was kinda like a rare reference only die hard B5 fans would get - this build is explosive and it doesn't reign in the KB - we send them flying!  haha As it should be.

Energy Blast/Atomic Manipulation

 

Rosea - Blaster (Seismic Blast - Atomic Manipulation).mxd---- Designed this for my wife after we came back a month or so ago when we were getting life simmered down a bit - this is an awesome build - awesome damage - feels very powerful!

Seismic Blast/Atomic Manipulation

 

 

Sentinels - Durable Rangemasters

 

Master Chief 017 - Sentinel (Beam Rifle - Ninjitsu).mxd---- My Halo Themed Sent - can survive well at range and limited close engagements also.  Damage is good if you can get the disintegration rolling.

Beam Rifle/Ninjitsu

 

Bohemian Rhapsodee - Sentinel - (Water Blast - Ninjitsu).mxd---- A Water themed Ninja I designed for my Wife - has great damage and control - with all the survivability you can get from Ninjitsu.

Water Blast/Ninjitsu

I have a few questions for the invuln/super strength build. Are you able to keep rage up at all times? What's your attack chain look like? And if I wanted laser beam eyes how should I alter build in your opinion?

Yeah and a good portion of the time its double stacked also.

 

Attack chain is smooth, haymaker and footstomp are the bread and butter honestly and KO blow is as advertised.

 

If you wanted to swap in LBE just sub it for either conserve power or focused accuracy and it should be fine.

First thank you for these builds and answering questions. I do have two more questions. First I take it hover and after burner are there for the slot to have global recharge and not actually turned on right? Also what incarnate slots do you recommend to compliment build? Seems you don't need more recharge.

My pleasure.

 

Hover and afterburner are there because I like to fly fast.  So may as well gain the recharge bonus too.  They could be easily swapped for another pool or power.

 

On all my tank builds I don't really build for recharge - but if it's there I take it.

 

I build for max survival first - well without gimping the attack too bad that is.

 

Alpha - Agility

 

Destiny - ageless radial because you already have dull pain and ageless radial gives you more DDR.  It also helps you mitigate a hard crash from rage if it happens in mid fight and hasten crashes too. 

 

Other than a few crazy instances like that rage crash doesn't bother this build - conserve power is there if you needed it too.

 

Hybrid - I get two - Assault radial and melee core and swap them for what I may run across.  I normally run assault though.

 

Judgement - mighty radial because it looks cool,  and takes a bunch of them off their feet for a few seconds.

Thank you again. Think I'll keep focused accuracy since I hate whiffing.

Well you wont whiff with this build with or without FA, FA is on this build for enemies that try to blind you - they don't with this... Ever.

Got any builds with Shield/Mace or Fire/Sword?  

Yes, I don't know how I forgot to post the shield mace build.  Basically the shield, invul, rad, fire, Elec, dark, wp frameworks are all the same - just swap in your secondary of choice and try to keep the sets similar to the secondaries I have in there.

 

I'll post the build when I get home from work later.

 

Are you opposed to the psi melee swords?  If you like that the most damaging build I have ever made is Lodestarr a Fire Psi.  

 

If you want an actual physical sword set I can make you one when I get home also.

 

Thanks for looking!

I was just thinking broadsword or titan because those can be styled as a flame blade in costume settings.  I’m thinking of making a sort of avenging angel/paladin character.  It should have fire aura defense set, a flaming sword of some sort for offense, and flight for travel.  It’s important that the sword appears and is used in most combat powers.  I don’t know if the psi blade is used in all or just one of the psi melee attacks.  Is it basically inspired by Psylocke?  I’d prefer it looked similar to a broadsword rather than a katana, scimitar, etc.  

Try this.

Tanker (Fiery Aura - Broadsword).mxd

Hi there, I was curious if you've had any experience and/or success in creating a solid SS/Rad brute at all? I've been experimenting with Mids (very new to it still), and I'm wondering if there is a successful way to hit the res caps while still putting out ample damage?

I noticed the invul/ss tanker doesn't have taunt do you find yourself missing it or is tanking fine without it?

Nah, I don't miss it - I quit Tanking with taunt years ago.  It's just a preference, and skill to be able to tank and not need it.

 

It's still a useful power, especially if you are newer to tanking, but I usually opt for more damage or survivability in its place now because a good aura and aoe in the right hands is all the taunt you need.

Sure, the rad part anyway but I should be able to swap in SS as the primary. 

 

I'll post something later for you.

Thanks very much for posting these! I'm just trying a Tanker, and find myself clueless. I made a Dark/Staff, and looking at builds (yours and others) has helped a lot, but I'm still not overly pleased with it.
I was hoping you (or some kind soul) might have a Dark/Staff build, or some guidlines/thoughts for a Tank newb? Pretty please? ;]
Thanks!

@Infinitum Silly question, But i might be making my first tanker. I was liking your Loestarr build, and people keep telling me that Psi melee is bad? As in, it got overnerfed some time in the past? Im still learning things, but my main concern is 100% PVE, i dont really pvp at all. So is it still good currently or is there some truth to what people have been telling me?

 

Thanks bunches in advance!
