Over a bit more than two years of playing CO, I came up playing with builds after gaining more experience. Some are just following the meta, while others come with out-of-the-box idea. Especially with tanks. But I'll also cover some support and DPS here.
Between what the meta-tank is and what you actually need to tank a cosmic, there is a very
large gap in which you can play with. I came to the conclusion that with skill and experience, you don't need no more than about 160% total resistance (including your passive) and at least 15 000k HP to tank the cosmics bosses, where meta-tanks reach almost 18k hp and 300% total resistance. That's not a confortable task, but it's doable.

Most of the builds are gear dependant (including mods), on a different scale from each others however. I'll comment about it, and discuss about the flaws of the builds (because they have
