Big changes for the tank in this new Flame of Ambition dlc, healt points are no longer a problem for anyone, so all the sets previously used to increase HP are now considered starter sets, like the Ebon. I will try to list some setups below, but the combinations can be many, and do not underestimate the sets that increase armor and resistances, also because this increase in hp could lead to surprises in the next trial -> like increased damage, magical or physical.
-The max health enchantment can be replaced by the max stamina, or by the tristat enchantment. It serves to balance the enchantments to get the desired attributes score; -You don't need to put 3 infused traits in the gear, at least not always, and especially you don't need to put the tri stat enchantments 3 times, often only 2 are necessary, even one sometime. -In the main weapon you can use the potion DRAIN STAMINA POISON IX, very good for regenerate your stamina, in this case you have to focus the crushing enchant in the 2° bar, and in 1° bar you can use as trait even defending; -The use of the lightining staff or the frost staff is totally subjective, the first give a support to the stamina DDs for the damage, to be use with build that use the block only with the stamina, the second for all those tanks that love to play in the 2nd bar for a defense boost and the ability to block with the use of magicka. Check the Tri Focus + Ancient Knowledge passive-> i suggest to use the frost staff always->+ mitigation.
Open in a new window Alkosh set - Trial Maw of Lorkhaj -The Alkosh set can still be used but it has lost its penetration, now the maximum penetration reached is 3k, but the tank usually does not exceed 2300 -> the penetration now depends on the weapon dmg ... Perhaps a combination, for the off tank, of Tremoscale + Alkosh can make a real contribution.
Zen's Redress - dungeon Lair of Maarselok -With the combination of these sets, if you can do some light attacks with the tank, you can reach + 10% of group damage (always if everyone uses a fire staff).
-There are also many tank damage sets but they do not affect the physical penetration or spell penetration. List them without links: -Ember Shield set - City of Ash I e II dungeon -Twin Sister - Auridon zone (medium) -Way of Fire - Craglorn zone -Thunder Carapace - Malabal Tor zone -Shadow of Red Mountain - Stone Falls zone -Storm Knight - Stormhaven zone
