Ok, I'm pretty new to the game and have yet to get a character to 50. So far I like Marauder and I thought I'd post this template and see what you guys think. I'm only rank 19 mar and have solo'd red Crabs.
Ok so what I got is Foresight, Feather foot, Disorient Jarring Strike, Fracture, Feint, Sacrifice 2, Invigorate (Or a mana regen) and both Protect and heal. Basically my line of thought is during every turn I am able to counter or use a skill to take down my enemy while being able to take and heal a lot of dmg. Kind of ...reactive in a way. Let me know what you guys think...
What does this have to do with being a tank? Your just naming abilities you like to solo with.
The reactive abilitys are generally a waste of AP, theres much better things you could equip that would help you out alot more. Your basically using alot of stamina and AP to try get a evade then counter type of thing going here when you would be much better served Skull Sunder spamming and having abilities like Second wind to make up for the extra damage taken.
