General Information

You tank stuff, and you DD stuff. Yes, you can even do both simultaneously.

Nothing holds hate better off DDs than the tank being a DD with enmity spells and abilities.

Food to Eat

Reccomended:

  • Miso Ramen icon.png Miso Ramen
  • Stats: HP +100, STR +5, VIT +5, DEF +10% (Cap: 170), "Magic Def. Bonus"+5, Magic Evasion +10% (Cap: 50),"Resist Slow" +10
    • The best defensive tanking food there is. It couples HP+, Defense, and Magic Evasion+ all into one food.
      • Purchased from the Auction House, crafted only.

Alternatives:

  • Black Curry Bun icon.png Black Curry Bun
  • Stats: (DEX+2, VIT+4, INT+1, Accuracy+5, Ranged Accuracy+5, Evasion+5, DEF+15% (Max. 180), "Resist Sleep"+3, HP recovered while healing +2, MP recovered while healing +1)
    • The next best thing. This food actually has 10 more defense than Miso Ramen, but lacks the other benefits. The silver lining is that they are a fourth to a fifth the price of Miso depending on the market.
      • Purchased from the Curio Moogle for 4,000 gil, 48,000 a stack.
  • Tavnazian Taco icon.png Tavnazian Taco
  • Stats: (HP+20, MP+20, DEX+4, VIT+6, AGI+4, CHR+4, DEF+25% (Max. 150), HP and MP recovered while healing +1)
    • The once famous food. There is no reason to really use this anymore, but if you are a lower level it will grant more defense than one of these higher level items given its lower cap, but higher percentage increase.
      • Purchased from the Curio Moogle for 4,000 gil, 48,000 a stack.
  • Fried Popoto icon.png Fried Popoto
  • Stats: (HP +30, VIT +2, Element: Fire +20, Defense +20% (Cap:145), Subtle Blow +8)
    • This food is as cheap as it gets, excluding the crystal it costs less than 300 gil to make 6 of these a synth. Making these in bulk to store and use for Ambuscade spam and similar events will cost you next to nothing. Even if you have to shout and pay a level 90+ cook 50-100k to make them for you. It would still only cost you roughly 10-20k a stack of Fried Popotos.
      • Purchased from the Auction House, crafted only.

Tanking /BLU

For those of you who are not inundated with the ins and outs of tanking with /BLU here is how it works:

  • Use Cocoon to boost your defense.
  • For maintaining hate on a target outside of your job specific abilities you use:
    • Jettatura, which has a long recast.
    • Blank Gaze, which has a very short recast and you may spam in between abilities, the cool down for Flash, etc. This is your bread and butter.
  • For maintaining AoE hate on a target outside of your job specific abilities you use:

If you were really desperate for AoE hate then you could also use Soporific, but coordinating your abilities with the recast of the aforementioned two spells is likely enough in most situations.
I also find Sandspin worth a mention as it has a niche use. While Sandspin will gain you just about no enmity it casts twice as fast as the previous spells and is an AoE. This is valuable for tanks who have many mobs on them and are being interrupted while casting the typical AoE hate spells. Sandspin can be used by those without a -102% spell interruption rate midcast set to tag mobs and then use an ability for hate, if only a little more successful.

Setting spells on for tanking /BLU focuses simply on a few enmity spells and then the rest are either for some traits or mostly due to their stat boosts. I personally focus on HP+ first before moving to VIT and AGI.

Equipment

Not going nuts here with tiered DD sets and shit. - Spicy

Note on Shell/MDT:

  • You only need 21% MDT after Shell V.

  • If you don't have most of these pieces then you aren't ready to tank most things.
  • This set is based off of ease of access to certain pieces of gear. Nothing here is really hard to get.
    • None of it is a waste of time to get either outside of Ayanmo Ring, but that is easy.
  • Evasionist's Cape is assumed at a 3% DT augment.
  • Moonbeam Ring would be better than Ayanmo Ring, but costs a chunk of money you should just spend on the tathlum instead.
  • Again focusing on excluding harder NMs or expensive items like Moonbeam Ring, there are a lot of options.
  • Use Meghanada Visor +2 to cap PDT over the posted Bandeau.
  • Just an idea there are plenty of tanking sets you can make.
  • Flume Belt and Genmei Earring are options for more PDT.
  • Futhark Coat +1 has less magic evasion than Erilaz +1 (64 vs 80), 24 less HP, and the Surcoat replaces the MP to damage of Flume Belt (6% vs 4%).

  • HQ strap is cheap and easy. Yes, your mind went there.
  • Sanare Earring alternative: Eabani Earring
    Eabani Earring description.png
    . Other options are in earlier sets.
  • Parry +5 on Ogma's is essentially Inquartata +5.
  • This should be somewhere around the quickest build for any RUN to be ready for any endgame without getting crazy.
  • NO MOONLIGHT RINGS?! Well, you do swap gear, and lose all that HP.
  • Sure, you could reduce enmity+ swaps for HP, but there are certain things like Temper, Phalanx, FC, SIR, etc that you shouldn't just cut out for HP+ on swaps.
  • Save Moonlight for DD related purposes. It is very good for that.
  • Yes, I know you can change the grip and add the Moonlight. Prior still applies.
  • Set isn't going to gain meaningful DPS from Moonlight. See Balanced.
  • Caps with Shell V.
  • This is not an MDT set. If parrying isn't a thing then wear one instead.
  • You can get away with Loricate +1 or Futhark +1 in this set.
  • Alternatively: Ashera Harness
    Ashera Harness description.png
    + Shadow Ring

    , but I'd favor constant M. Eva.

  • Sacrifices +5 parry for M. Eva/DPS. It is all about your choice of play-style.
  • This is an all around one set wonder. Including keeping Utu for Dimidiation/swapping into DD gear, even if it is just for unloading during Battuta or something.
  • Look, there are a great many situations, and you really may benefit the group tremendously if you play them well by ear.
  • Sometimes your survival dwarfs your ability to add some solid DPS. Sometimes that solid DPS is the difference between holding hate or not.
  • IMO this means the most for your grip, you can gain a great defensive advantage by gaining DT there for M. Eva or etc. in other slots.
  • Epeolatry vs Lionheart depends on the content, and buffs you have. Generally, it's a better idea to go with Epeolatry and Dimidation unless you are significantly buffed.
  • This also allows you to run with -42% PDT with nothing but DD gear, Epeo, Ogma's, and Ashera Harness (better for AM↑ anyway).
  • Lionheart has it's "OP" stigma from easy content like fodder NMs or Escha/Omen zergs. Dimidiation with a solid set/aug'd Epeo works much better for underbuffed or lowman content.

  • Yes, WSD+ only impacts the first hit of Resolution. However, the more damage resolution does the better Knob gets.
  • No idea when it overtakes Seething, but in the low to mid 20k+ damage range, that WSD is more powerful than the +4/5 STR you get from it by a decent amount.
    • If you value the accuracy or consistency, then just use Seething.

  • Similar to Knob for Reso, certain choices like Adhemar over Herc or using Fotia involve how much Dimidiation is actually doing. This set was factored at ~17k Dimdiation damage.
  • Herc Helm needs to be perfect in order to beat Lustratio Cap +1 path A.

  • Very close to HQ A too. A better swap overall if you prefer/need accuracy.
  • Changing the neck to Anu Torque if you want less DT should be slightly better over the legs for Samnuha Tights max; even if your accuracy is capped.
  • Body is the smallest gain.
  • Ring to Epona's (if not using Epeo) would be the largest DPS gain.
  • NQ hands if you lack the HQ.
  • Mache NQ is likely identical in accuracy due to DEX, but a slight DPS loss.
  • NQ hands if you lack the HQ.
  • Good Herc Augs are also an option.
  • Moonbeam Ring is a good chunk out of your DPS over Niq, but maybe you don't have Niq or maybe you want HP and DT.

  • Currently a second Stikini +1 is useless for max skill.
    • Still useful for lesser skill builds, cut out the augmenting earring etc.
  • Pukulatmuj +1 is worth +11 skill if you want.
  • Play around with it as you wish.

  • Great for holding groups of mobs, E.g. Omen.
  • People say you need 102% SIR based on old testing. However, I never get interrupted at 101% with newer ilvl pieces (no merits).
    • Much like DT or Haste pieces, I assume there is a certain fractional value for the armor/merits.
  • You could just merit SIR to reduce the % needed.
  • This is a midcast so DT+ since you have multiple foes on you would be the goal for the other slots.

Your enmity set is essentially your limiting factor for HP in your other sets.

  • So as a hume with capped HP merits, I will have ~2,600 HP in this set.
  • So adding tons of HP+ to your tanking set won't serve much purpose besides annoying your healer.
  • Your tanking set will very likely have more HP than this set already.

Unless you start giving up enmity for HP+ in slots, but that is your choice.

  • There are a lack of good trade-offs, IMO.
