    Agreed pretty much all player crafted is stated for DPS instead of tanking so if you want to tank it's best to get NPC crafted gear tailored for Utility and Survival

    I didn't think you get guard power 100%? negate 100% of incoming damage?

    Is there someone that makes the build or a description of the build? I didn't think there was enough items in the game to even reach 100% Guard power or even guard rate? I can only imagine it has to do with Helberd users?

    I wouldnt say this build is completely viable at this point since halberd+dagger suffers from very low aggro and hit rate, the loss of guardian aggro is painful too.
    Though halberd+arrow punish ray tank build is worth trying can still reach 70-80% guard power without parry dagger.

    This would be cooler if dive impact was used

    Yeah.. can even make semi dps halberd with dive impact and war cry as aoe aggro if not smoke shot from shot skills the new semi tank halberd i am working on doesnt have enough sp for either of those skills so stuck with single boss tanking maybe later when more sp is available the build will be possible. Punish ray is a must for both of them tho which can get interrupted so its still difficult.

    All is well for 100% guard power except for that 'one' moment where the guard didnt proc and that wave will violate your butt.

    Maybe they will add that later in the game too remember that xp quest was also popular in iruna before high hp/xp mobs were out and as per my memory notts are lvl199 and mega are 201

    It would also be possible that high xp mobs wont be implemented cuz its easily exploited by botters
    And they are nerfing everything op in iruna here in toram
    eg. Mini heal used as revive, guardian, sword tempest, arrow rain, equips for 1s pot spam, 95% fractional barrier, and many more (snipe was buffed up btw)

    Apostolia though is what we need to release that 255 stat limit xP

    Oh ty, surprised it reduced it to 1 damage . Though seemed consistent , i noticed Helberd seemed to be better aligned to use heavy armor .

    I'll need to think about how shield can be better aligned to provide better guard rates. Seems odd that a class that without a shield guards more effectively than one with an actual shield .

    The biggest problem here is that when equipping shield it removes the 25% base guard power of heavy armor though i can still reach 50% guard power and 85% guard rate even with shield.
    In the end its all about choosing the best possible gears depending on the boss that you are facing.

    Seems odd that you'd lose guard potential with a shield using heavy armour. Though I don't think that would change in the future. So, I guess for a shield user it is not expected to use heavy armour. Which leads me to believe that either normal or light armour is more appropriate for 1h / shield users.

    I guess that works in my favour, as I use light armour with an evasion rating of around 30% | Guard rate 20% (Guard power 25%). Though I have had a sense that this would have been better with heavy, though with this knowledge I can feel a bit more confident in my build. I am looking forward to having 40% evasion, and I can only assume new shields will have higher GR/GP levels.

    I do wonder, if they have the ability to evade magic like they do in Iruna.

    In addition, has anyone seen a video where someone with a high guard rate stands on a bosses static AOE countering with guard strike per tick?

    I have tested evasion on various bosses with various different shapes of aoes and i can conclude that only physical or fractional single target attacks and circular AOES surrounding the target are evadeable. While any magic attacks or physical/fractional AOE having linear, ring, circle surrounding the caster are unevadeable. It also does not activate on non targetting mobs either. So at the moment evasion is not the best stat for tanking but dodge is as dodge works on any physical/fractional attack regardless of the shape of their AOE, they just have much higher accuracy than a normal single target attack, also dodge even works for non targetted mobs.

    About guard strike yes theres videos about that but the damage is not very high on pure tank and also because it keeps sucking the physical proration by using it that way.
