Infernal Chains Tank

I just reseted one of my tanks to use chain powers, but I'm not sure if it's viable:

@flowcyto do you think I might be able to pull aggro with this build? I'm kinda on a weird spot here, because chains are tagged as ranged, but I'm using STR as PSS because I lose about 20% defense switching to EGO PSS.

Should I abandon this idea and go for a more tradicional route?

    Might and Bestial have some chains that are melee tagged. It won't matter as much here, though, since your toggle/form still mostly benefits ranged. AotI scales w/ Int or Ego, so I'd def SS one of those at the least.

    Protector: Bulwark (2/2)
    Protector: Defensive Expertise (3/3)
    Protector: Resolute (1/3)
    Mastery: Protector Mastery (1/1)

    The lower base dps of Lash can be supplemented by poison stacking, Wisp's debuffs, the AO, and Toxic Nanites. Could also consider the threat boost from something like CoPD, and/or a 2nd AO instead of a self-res or w/e. Ego SS could replace Int SS here; CON/Int_Ego/Dex may also work for the SS setup (I'd prob get more cost discount if using Ego SS, either way).

    I prob wouldn't take this as a main tank for high-end content, but it can still work okay outside of that.
