The blade version of Riot Truck. Works great all the way from elites to the toughest Nightmare Dungeons.


Raging Bullet

Replacing one of your defensive cooldowns when you’re confident about your tanking skills will result in more DPS through this active.

Flak Jacket

Provides your group and yourself with a buff that reduces damage taken by 15% for 5 seconds.

Defensive Turret

Honestly, in most cases this ability is completely overkill mitigation wise. So, useful when you want more mitigation instead of damage.

Iron Maiden

If you have enough Hit Rating you can swap Paradigm Shift for more Penetration.


This build has a lot of mitigation and covers a lot of your glyph points even in blue gear.

Shotgun turret requires you to target yourself in order to gain your shotgun weapons support effect, granting you additional mitigation. This ability can be cast at 1 resource as its primary function is to apply Debilitate through Improved Blasts.

You can use Stunning Swirl or Trial by sword to impair special abilities such as Charged Hack.

    What kind of shotgun/blade do you recomend?

    • Ciritty

      That depends on what you use your shotgun for, if you never DPS or can afford a second shotgun, penetration rating would do. Otherwise you’re just using the shotgun with your dps stats on it. For Blade it would be Block.

    What would you replace Paradigm Shift with if you have enough hit? Guide says Dark Potency, but that’s already there anyway, so…
    I was thinking hard case, or maybe full flak jacket?
