Rift Warrior Tank Build – Witch Hunter

Rift Warrior Tank Build – Witch Hunter

All of our other tank builds have focused heavily on melee combat, either swarms of enemies or a few elites.  This build changes from fighting melee combatants to focusing on casters.  With better resistance to non-physical damage, it serves its purpose well.

Summary

This Build may be the toughest one yet. You will end up with a 29% reduction to spell damage (20%
reduction to all non-physical damage). If you can keep your Ravenous Defense and Ravenous Strength
your armor will be over 10k and your block will be in the 600 to 700 range. You heal when you Block,
hit with Reprisal or Disarming Counterblow as well as when you gain a pact. The massive boost to your
strength from Ravenous Strength will boost most of your healing as well as your damage output. And
you can heal yourself with Fusion of Flesh or Touch of Life if you are in need.
