Seeking advice on Stone/Dark/Soul Hami-tank build


Recommended Posts

This build is a take-off of a Stone/Fire build from NCSoft days.  I tweaked that for HC twice (once just to add Fold Space).  The idea with that build was that she would be able to tank at 45+ using Clarion and the second-class defenses and only have to resort to Rooted, Granite and TP when things got rough.  This build takes the same tack, but adds Siphon Life for Hami tanking.  I think it's OK.  I'm not going all out for Hami tankiness.  One notch down on that and using EoEs to add more usefulness elsewhere is where I'm aiming.


The biggest disappointment I have with the build as it stands is the Recharge.  As for places to improve.  Stealth, Teleport and Darkest Night are all luxuries.  The +BU proc in Soul Drain, the Gift of the Ancients specials and the second slot in Swift are as well.  So there are slots and power choices to be had.  There are undoubtedly tweaks elsewhere I just can't see because I've been looking at it too long from one direction.  Where I think the build is shortest is in the HP/s in healing from Siphon Life due to the Granite Armor -Recharge.  When Hasten drops the healing may not be enough.  And dropping out of Granite to get more exposes the build to KB and Toxic.
