41 Warlord / 35 Paladin / 0 Void Knight Guide (PvE Tank Hybrid) – 2.8

The Build: 41 Warlord/ 35 Paladin/ 0 Tempest (or 0 VK, use what you see fit to)

NOTE
The soul trees and some tooltips on Riftscene are NOT accurate. The point spread IS accurate, just copy it over and you will be running the right build, the tooltips are simply wrong.

This is a hybrid of Warlord and Paladin, resulting in some absolutely ridiculous DPS numbers, with a very noticeable difference in HP and mitigation. Do NOT use this spec unless you are overgeared and have confident healers as you will die, guaranteed. I average about 15k DPS on single target boss fights in expert pugs with this spec without a Warlord crystal, which would only add more. My greatest accomplishment with this spec so far is 18.6k DPS while tanking Goloch, but I could probably break 25k now given the opportunity.

This spec works best with Stormlord’s Flatblade, or more preferably Death’s Final Defeat, or 2x tank 1 handers and the Warlord synergy crystal. It will only work well on fights where you can block a lot of the attacks (ie fights like Matriarch and Regulos it will be useless).…

Paladin Tank Guide – 2.8

The Build: 61 Paladin / 15 Reaver / 0 Void Knight

NOTE
The soul trees and some tooltips on Riftscene are NOT accurate. The point spread IS accurate, just copy it over and you will be running the right build, the tooltips are simply wrong.

This is the #1 physical mitigation spec, although very boring, yet easy to play.

Cooldowns:

  • Touch of Life : Instant OGCD full heal
  • Life's Rapture : Instant OGCD raid full heal over 6 seconds and 10% mitigation. It heals 100% of your health instantly and heals your raid over 6 seconds. 1:30 CD (OGCD). Be VERY careful when using this, as it is extremely powerful and has a massive threat modifier. You will pull agro instantaneously on ANYTHING you are not currently the main target of…however this ability being so powerful can easily prevent a raid wipe, but also cause them.

Void Knight Tank Guide – 2.8

The Builds:

NOTE
The soul trees and some tooltips on Riftscene are NOT accurate. The point spread IS accurate, just copy it over and you will be running the right build, the tooltips are simply wrong.

This spec is my personal favorite and is heavy dps as well with the (semi-complicated) rotation is explained below.

A second sidenote to this spec, do NOT use it on Crucia as you have about a 99% chance of wiping the raid during mind control. If you do use it on Crucia, make sure you can do the entire final platform in one mind control phase and you do not get mind controlled. The other tank must take Crucia first, and then you take over. Crucia must die before her second mind control happens.

Reaver Tank Guide – 2.8

The Build: 61 Reaver/ 15 Void Knight/ 0 Paladin

NOTE
The soul trees and some tooltips on Riftscene are NOT accurate. The point spread IS accurate, just copy it over and you will be running the right build, the tooltips are simply wrong.

This spec is the #1 spell mitigation spec aside from 38/38/0, but I will have to confirm with Primal on the hard numbers though….I will keep this updated.

Cooldowns:

  • Crest of Entropy : 30% less damage for 10 seconds (OGCD), 1m CD (OGCD)
  • Crest of Consumption : Use when expecting a big hit.
