  • Resist (Max 100) (focus poison)
  • Dodge (from boots)
  • Strength

Passive tree :

  • here : Must have point

How to use :

This build is not very good at the moment because we don't have real tank runes (Like aggro keep rune). But I tested it and it is pretty tanking enough.

  • The defensives stats must be 90%+ perfect and you need a nice pool of hp/hp regen to never be one shot
  • You can also use a Cowl of Obscurity for some free heal (But you deal low damage)
  • The 2 charges is used to spam charge stun monsters (Need ~20% mana regen) and help other to not be hit by them

(This build will have big rework when new rune will be added !)
