Themed tank dps am I on the right track?

So this is my first themed toon. She s a tank dual passive dps. Strictly swords and the random fire breath is for off tanking . In short she's a female ronin imbued with the spirit of the dragon..once again which manifests on fire breath. I'm not sure if I Wan a use repears caress or the tornado slash. They both do one and the same, undecided on dragons bite..which I like..keeps bleeds up entire time I'm tanking and when i dps I use tornado then repears embrace..but as I'm typing this sounds more like I should use repears caress

    Well, one issue is that Firebreath won't proc with your toggle/form or EU- though I guess that's not a huge deal if you're only tapping it against scattered mobs to tag them w/ Challenge.

    Anyways, if this is meant to be an SB build, then you prob do want Reaper's Caress for the bleed buildup and for the easy access to Shredded. You'll be generating a lot of threat when playing as a dps too, but I guess you can work around that. I may also keep Dragons' Bite for Rush's extra energy, and get Physical Peak in Str PSS. Could also use Steadfast as the EU if you're already gearing for Dex. Here's one way to edit it:

    Well i see tour point for drafons bite but it will nees challenge since thats what i use while tanking. I was using tornado because its aame as caress just has longer cooldown. I have tiger cub device ao when i dps i work in shreddwd but when tanking i focus just om bleeds

    Yea, but you mine as well use the basic combo for bleeds and shredded, since it's not constrained by a cd or charge time and can be a basic melee attack to use when you're not blocking or don't have bleeds fully stacked yet. That's not to say that Tornado Slash is bad- it just fills a kinda different niche.

    Maybe what you could do is keep Challenge off of DB and give it Rush + R2 (you'd have to remove a rank from something else in my build), and then it can be your main attack when dps'ing (Vorpal Blade can put up Bleeds, if you want to not use RCaress then, and I didn't put challenge on REmbrace so you could still use that). It won't be ideal for dps, but it's a dual-passive build anyways so that's somewhat of a given, and I assume you value the performance of the tanking part a bit more than the dps part.

    I'd probably use form of the tempest, as it can proc on all of your attacks instead of only some of them.

    Yea, I considered FotT as well. Esp if he wants to use Firebreath more than that's the better choice- it's a bit more rng-based, but it could work too.

    Use DEX PSS for a real offensive tank.

    Does str make that much of a difference over dex for dual ruling as a tank and dps? Seems that everyone goes tank..mainly for the xtra health?
