Default Re: best pve tank

what the above guys said: get more earth resist - my pve set up has me at 600+ on earth, fire & dark and 500+ wind, water & holy

other things to consider are
- always use Freya Art aka rose bufs
- fish stews STR
- turtle bufs - adds pdef & patt/crit rate
- 7s or Anakim for pdef + element attack boost
- a +7 Shiny or other type of Shirt
- venir talisman 14+
- STR+Patt head gear

btw on a PVE cutter there are basically only like 3 decent augments to get and a few semi ok ones:
- +15% p crit damage <- best
- +10% PVE damage
- +10% patt
- +70 Elemental Patt in combo with a decent 2nd value like STR or static patt boost (1256 or so is max)
this is assuming that you use another weapon with HP build for PVP aka for PVE the SA's should be p crit damage & patt

if you can afford it get on a buf stick +15% active p crit damage buf from Giants LS <- can be quite costly

PVE epics are:
Trasken - 20% crit damage
Ruler - 20% crit damage
Lindy
Bless Vally
Bless Anthy

get a blessed agathion for the soon 50 element patt/def boost as well +1 to all stats incl. CHA & LUC // or if you have that use the one from NC Store that adds 5% Patt on toggle

btw I will assume you have at least +15 STR dye set up and proper dual & sub class skills in combo with full on PVE AP

Question about this actually. Would it be better to run with a PvE 1h Blunt as opposed to Cutter if you are attempting to solo with a boxes SoS buffer? I've seen some of the damage that you do on Valakas/Antharas and wondering if you use blunt. I don't think that damage is possible with a cutter, if it is just wow.

OFC blunt with SoS would do more damage. However, it's one thing to box an SoS buffer at a raid and it's entirely different to drag one along as you hunt. What a ******* headache. Even if you get it lvl 101+ it is still a 1 shot at any 99+ hunting area.

EDIT: I can confirm that TWO end game Titans switched their Retris to Slashers because they were just sick and tired of dealing with SoS. Yes SoS is nice and I suppose if you are DEAD SET on solo leveling a tank then a 1h Blunt with SoS Box would be nice but it's not for everyone and it is a pain in the backside.

Not tradeable so if you don't have one you'll have to wait till they are back in NC Store (may never be back TBH).

what smokas & rodah said, I really do prefer cutter and hate having to box more chars then I need

ps, eventually the sos buf will get fixed - Tanks Improvement update is next on Korean dev list and might take it away or hopefully give us a lvl 103 version ^^

I can understand the annoyance of it being a titan. With good macros it can make it better but boxing 1 toon vs 2 is really a world of difference.
I hope they do fix it but I don't see them giving a 103 tank the same version of SoS, it would be OP just as it is now. The current version of SoS for 101+ tanks is good, but I understandably still like the benefits of the unawakened version better.

Default Re: best pve tank

Im not really a forum poster guy, but just wanted to say thanks to Draecke and Rodah and all on this thread for pve str build tanks. I was able to build mine well enough to do k95 group as solo damage, with Iss box de-buffing only killing boss in 10-15 mins once reached.

i am lvl 100 SK
my gear is:

+6 r99 hvy set atk 120ele
+16 blessed apoc avenger( Death & Focus) no augment yet
+15 str -6dex dyes
crit rate hat
octavis shirt
rudolph
Aria bracelet +3 con
Longing
venir 8
+6 tw pvp belt
dia opal emer lvl 3 ruby lvl 2
+3 orfen soul
+3 coc pvp para
+3 istina neckalce
+4 baium
oly ring 60day

I am switching to hell knight at 101 and before i do atellia gludio kama99duo instances. but i am wandering if i'm too squishy to do them or is that not a factor?.What gear do i need in priority that is cheapest to improve my damage and ability to do those instances fast in a party? any help is appreciated.
