A tank build that is very viable in Fusang and El Dorado, and possibly Stonehenge to some extent.

You can swap Blade Torrent with Forking Paths for a tiny extra amount of healing with no reduction in damage, however, I like using Blade Torrent as it allows me to put a Fleeting Augment on it.

You can also swap The Art of War with Unstoppable Force for extra block and healing. It also has a lower cooldown.

If you find yourself needing Sleight of Hand, you can replace Trucker.

    Question! The build recommends 300 penetration. Having a full penetration glyph on the blade at 10.4 gives you 319 penetration. So is that it, or does the build need 300 penetration without the blade? Just wanted clarification.

    • Vikestart

      300 pen is an approximation :) It’s only on the blade.

        Oh, sorry, wasn’t nitpicking about the actual amount- just making sure that the one pen glyph on the blade was all the pen needed for the build. Thank you! :)

    Does this build not need any hit?
