A tank’s job is to control a fight, to help the party mitigate incoming damage, and to dictate who is getting hit. They can take an unconscionable amount of punishment, and woe to those who ignore their commands.
All classes with Tank as their primary archetype will be viable for tanking upper echelon raids. Tanks are not required to use a shield, however, it will be a very viable option. There are three types of build options for tanks which include:
- Evasion tanks
- Control tanks
- Shield tanks
