Rifstalker/Bard/Bladedancer Tanking buildFollow

I'm going that way for my tanking build:

http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MpVc.EIt0uqdRkkM.x.xhd0Vo

44 points is the way to go for Rifstalking, as it allows you to get the AOE Taunt.

5 points in Bladedancer for Quick Reflexes and Side Step for more avoidance

17 points in Bard for increase Health, less hit and crit chance on me, and anthem boost for stats padding.

Feel free to comment.

This is what I would use;

No idea why you didn't get rift scavanger, get 5 combo points on adds just before they die and you get a 30% heal! ( don't know if you can put those 5 combo points on the next target with planar switch tough.

Hasted Time is nifty, especially for PvP, but I wouldn't make significant sacrifices for it in a tank spec (ie dropping Rift Scavenger).

This is what I'm looking at so far. 12 points in Bladedancer for the interrupt, 13th is in Ambidextrous for lack of anything more useful to put it in. Additional eva/parry can't hurt. Wouldn't mind a couple extra points in Bard but I'm not really comfortable giving up Weapon Barrage and can't drop any points in Riftstalker without giving up Planar Attraction.

I've been debating about Bladedance or Ranger for the last and 3rd soul of my build!


With Ranger:

With Bladedancer:
http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MpcV.EIthuVdokkR.Ehz.x0b

Bladedancer:

5% Dodge
Sidestep

Ranger:
5% Increase Health
6% Damage Reduction

I'm more tempted with the Ranger build to be honest because i just love passive stats.

What are you guys thought.

i use bladedancer for sidestep and dodge finisher, as well as the passive trait that makes you counterattack after you dodge. but hmm 6% more dmg reduction on top of maxed riftstalker trait and phantom blow...18% right there. not bad at all.
