Suggested Auxiliary Abilities
Ability Ability Very handy for avoiding AoEs and moving across the battlefield. It can, however, be removed in order to do more damage.
Ability Ability Good for personal damage as well as having the advantage of doing decent damage even under buffs if an augur signet is used.
Ability Ability Gives a very good DPS increase that applies to anyone who hits the target. It can, however, be tricky to hit the lurker with crack because of its hitbox.

In order to get enough health, it is recommended to have about 6000 and use a pure health anima to boost it to around 7000. Your crit rating should go on your fist weapon while you shoul dhave crit power on your blade as well as one or two minor talismans.

Scenarios

DESCRIPTION

This build is aimed for use in the New York Raid and it aims to turn you into a tank who is simply a DPS with some extra health. This build will likely do considerably less damage than a Blade/Hammer build, and therefore, you should take care if using this build while tanking with someone who uses Blade/Bammer. The advantage of this build is that it has a much easier rotation than a Blade/Hammer build.

SITUATIONAL ABILITIES

Reckless

Gives a very nice damage buff, but it also makes you take more damage for its duration. You should therefore only use it when you do not have aggro, and you should always clear it with your healer before using it. Replace Steel Echo.

Stoicism

Works very well if you tank with someone who does considerably more damage than you. Use Master’s House if you are balanced with your co-tank, otherwise go for stoicism to avoid double stacks.

Provoke

You can bring this instead of Sling Blade to grab the birds, or as an emergency button in case you need to grab aggro off the other tank and he/she cannot confuse. This should, however, be redundant in most cases.

HOW IT WORKS

Build with Blade Torrent and use Sling Blade whenever it is off cooldown (it is also handy for grabbing the birds). Use Tear ‘Em Up before you use Dancing Blade on Elemental Force in order to boost the damage done by Dancing Blade.
