With the new Miracle Worker specialization coming out soon, there's been a lot of talk about Tanks and how useful or not useful they are in STFs. That being said, nobody has offered up anything as to what a tank build actually looks like, or will look like come next month.
So let's talk about that. What makes a good Tank build? What would be required?
To my mind, a decent tank build has survivability in mind, not necessarily high DPS. You want as much of the attention as you can get so that the rest of your team can concentrate on burning down mobs. Inversely, if you're not doing enough DPS, you're not going to grab or hold threat, so there's a line to walk there.
So what does a tank build actually look like? What's the skill tree look like? What gear is best for it?
