about gear it's all about what you think works for you and how you can support certain builds in combo with other equipment..

simple example as if anyone actually bother to look closely to my AF run video you will see I have a Vesper Noble armor equipped with zero glow and that's cause it really is a Vesper set

Masterwork Noble Vesper Hvy armor adds the most Patt of all Hvy sets and still has good enough Pdef when used in combo with abundance lvl1 and diamond 3+ to outshine any Bloody Hvy sets.

Now on the PVP side of things even a simple +4 Apo Cutter with HP/Haste SA build with the right type of augment will be more then enough for any mass pvp situation period.

Only get a PVP R99 weapon on a Tank if you are serious about Oly or just have to much money else don't bother - if need the PVP SA for the extra HP just make it PVE which is way cheaper.. heck a 1H Tauti Axe is better then a PVP Cutter.

long story short there are several ways in how you can maker a semi decent build without things getting crazy expensive.

Hello,

I was reading this topic for some time already cause I am leveling one HK and never played tank so far. I want to ask something about gear. I am thinking to use it strictly for PvE only, not PvP this HK.

The gear I was able to get so far is this:

+8 Blessed TW Heavy set
+8 Blessed Apo Cutter (HP and Att speed atm, will change Att for more HP later)
dyes 3 x +5CON -2STR
+5 Istina Shirt
+5 Monkey Belt
Abu Hunter
Hair Acc CON+M Def
+5 Istina Earing
+5 CoC Earing Mental Att
+5 Octa Neck War
+5 Ring of Creation
+4 Octa Ring War
Rudolph Agathion

Epic jewels and Abu Hunter I am borrowing from my wynn for now cause I am not really sure what epic jewels PvE tank is needing. That is my question in fact - which of the jewels I can use with HK and which I can try to buy him in the future.

In general which of the gear I mentioned above I can use and which I need to switch with better one.

Thanks in advance

Here is a pic of my PvE Tank ATM. I actually think my AP is still set up for sieges so stats could be a bit more PvE oriented.

http://i68.tinypic.com/2vb05c3.jpg

Quick rundown of gear to get an idea of where these numbers come from:
+16 Bless Apoc Cutter
+6 Masterworks Vesper Noble Set
Rare Acc Pack (I have perma stun jewel set for oly/siege)
7s, Insanity, lv4 Abun, Venir 16 Talismans
+15 STR
+3 STR Bracelet
4* Agathion
Freya Rune (I got a years supply of these )
STR Stew / Rose
+3 STR / P.Attack Acc
+7 Phys Shirt
Exalted Cloak
LV4 PvE Gem Set (Dia, Eme, Opal, Ruby, Vit)
Clan Advent & Full Clan Skills (this is huge for all you lone wolfs out there)

My stats are good but could be better. There are certainly stronger PvE Tanks out there.

So we are around the same P.Atk... when I have BR+Frenzy+Savage ^^

It's kind of weird that with all that setup you don't reach the 500 Crit. I guess pt buffs get you there anyway

I actually need to change the SA on that weapon. It is Health & Health/Haste for sieges. It had those SA's on it when I got it and I have been too lazy to change them. I've been focusing on my main but as soon as it hit 103 I will switch back to my dual and switch to Might & Death/Focus. That will easily put me over 30k and my crit rate will be 500.

Additionally, if/when Red Libre comes back I will switch my +18 Bless Apoc Pole to a Sword/Blunt. I should have 32-34k with that weap.

Since your main is Maestro and you'll be using Focus, Blunt might be better

The max P.Atk I've ever reached was over 50k during BR with Elysium sword, I think I was already 101 by then

I'm actually a DN right now. I switched just to level factions but I'll be switching back to Maestro "soon" lol.

You are right about the blunt. I will be using an Avenger for both my main and dual. This however does present a slight problem. I will have to sacrifice either a small amount of P.Attack or a small amount of crit dmg as I will have to use a Tauti Ring for the blunt crit rate boost. Not a huge problem but still kinda annoying.

Default Re: best pve tank

here is my lame faction farm pve set up, can increase STR with +15 by using Protein Drinks and +5 STR Mysterious Tali as well add 50 Ele patt with Mysterious Tali and use a Joon buf which adds even more elemental patt for the more serious XP stuff

http://i67.tinypic.com/wbb4au.jpg

ps, for PVE only stuff you can also add a Bloody Rune for 15% more PVE dps

At some point it would though wouldn't it; because of the Breastplate OE bonus?

Masterworks Vesper gives 13.61% P.Attack Bonus.

Bloody Hvy gives 5% P.Attack and +1 more STR.

I'm not really sure how the BP OE bonus works; it might take a +15 BP to = 8% P.Attack. Or, that might not even be enough lol. Maybe ask your new clanny (Pope has a +15 BP) to compare his BP to a +8 BP, see what the difference is.

doubt it even equals but that's besides the point as the price tag difference is just plain stupid to even consider it - you know the cost of my pve armor and let's not even speculate what it cost to make a +15 R99 BP

Do you have a full masterwork Vesper set or just BP?

And was the process? Just crafting until you got Masterpiece?

Probably out of the question for most, but at your gear levels draeke, would you be able to pull off a light armor set and do more damage? Im not exactly aware of what you mighty lose by wearing light, but you would gain the missing p attack, and pick up other goodies like the skill reuse.

Made my set back in the HighFive days so ya crafting.. it's quite easy now but be aware you do need other items to increase your pdef to pull it off like diamond 4 / abundance 1
