    Whats the best class for a tank?

    Recently I tried a Wonderer tank but found out that it isn't the optimal class for tanking.

    Creator and warriors are best tanks.
    Creator can stun when hit and certain builds can heal.
    Warriors get the most hp per vit and have the highest natural hp regain.

    Acolyte is the 2nd weakest in VIT HP gain. But it is a tank. Thanks to the ability to heal. When comes to natural HP regen, monk passive did slightly better than warrior. But monk passive more of a recover skill instead of regen lol.

    Priest is the last man standing when in a no time factor spar/war. As Potion one fine day will finish for warrior lol. Unless they can get many friends to mail those potions over. Lmao.

    With a 6*+ 2h sword. Fought a lvl 80 with 50/50 str vit and he used human type on his helm which dropped damage produced by damn near 40% watched my buddy's carta go from 750~900 with the same non-human type drop to 420~590. With that being noted I recommend full human type armor for pvp and the same set but non human type for grinding. Curious to see if more str/dex pures pop up in pvp that just use human type armors in PvP.

    Bard makes a good tank when build with MEN=VIT.
    Lacks physical damage, but nice crit buff/MEN damage skills+heals.

    Or because Bd is best used when followed by Spiker it's best to cap str at 103 and opt for 55 vit, 55 men as your endgame build as the heals are exceptionally nice, it doesn't lack offense and when carried to Spiker the passive boosting crit rate combined with two +12 dex rings results in a very good crit rate on top of damn good defensive capabilities.

    I haven't mastered Bd,Sp,or ED yet..
    I'm not worried about pumping points into dex since passion notes gives me a crit buff. I do crit a ton as long as passion notes is up.
    I'm going BD, bring Passion Notes to Spiker, and taking flowing lance to ED, then master tripping gale then going back to bard.. XD

    I got 80+20 MEN
    45+13STR
    5 in VIT/DEX
    I'm aiming for at least 60-80STR then rest into VIT. My goal is to have 2 skills with no cool downs.

    I wasn't even aware that Bd had a crit buff. I was informed that Spikers passive gave the crit buff. Either way I'm honestly thinking of turning my lv30 smurf char into another shot at a Wd. My first time as a Bd was MISERABLE as he was a str pure and I wasn't accustomed to builds that are geared to survival.

    When PN is used, a crit icon appears where buffs are. So one could put points into VIT instead of dex.
    But if you go full Str WD, then Spiker would be the way to go since BD only Str skill is passion notes

    So Bds heals are generated based on Men?

    Yes siiiir.
    But since Therapy Melody is an aoe heal, it only heals a lot depending on players MEN. Low men=low heals.

    It's sucks cause I heal myself full, but for everyone else, it depends on their MEN as well. Bards heal is okay, not great, but very useful. I can grind for hours without running out of potions.
    I heal close to 2k..right now I heal 1.8k

    It's tough to say which class is the best tank..warriors are probably number 1 due to their hp regen passive..actually the best tanks are Priests. Since they are unkillable in pvps and massive heals. They can basically tank everything if they have pro gears/high VIT/int.
    Idk though, soooo much thinking xD

    A tank must be able to received hits and adapt to any situation to survive. Even in worse situation like no potions (hp/sp) and super strong boss that gives two hits 3000 crit for eg. Even Large potion seems useless sometimes as heal amount is always 1000 hp only. I roughly seen some special 'potion' can heal more than 1000 hp if i never remember wrong.

    I love my warrior, creator and wonderer. But not any tank as above survive longer than acolyte. As a tank means independent and strong. Acolyte may have slight power issues but that's a trade off which i think is fair enough :)

    The best solo char i have ever played is Acolyte. (But if i'm piss off with acolyte slow damage, i love rogue and go crazy speed and that's pretty fun xD) Rogue spam potion like a boss and it is worth it lol..

    alchemist can make them. They act like a OP version of fairy glass potions. Healling both hp and sp. If i recall they heal 1.2k or 1.7k hp and almost 1000 SP

    That is great. The better the heal value of potions, the better worth being a tank.

    warrior is the best for building tanks & it can kill hard than others in pvp .
    so at last after playing almost all the classes i turned back to warrior because of his high natural recovering, high hp and high damage

    I don't think you can shortcut first aid kits..correct me if I'm wrong, but I do own a alchemist.

    So would a VIT/INTalchemist make a good tank? Dat potion mist..
