Tank building?
« on: 12:17:23 - 01/09/12 »
Hi all. I'm a total newbie in Estiah. I like the idea of doin' PVE, and in other games I had always done the tank. How can I build a good tank (I chose the paladin, 'cause I use it in wow xD), and what charms are best fitted for doing this work well?
Sorry if this questions are too noobish :D

Best for tank later on are Slayers (I used to rock as a slayer tank) and Warden, but you don't really "build a tank" in Estiah, you just collect charms allowing you to play a tank in some situations, but it's not like you make a build towards anything that specific, you're still able to run other strategies as well normally. But you'll understand that better as you keep playing. In the early levels (especially around lvl 10) you can also build some pretty effective pure tank decks for PvP, using the defensive  charms available... but don't try to think too much in advance yet, the game gets a bit complex past then (the learning curve is progressive thankfully) so there's a lot more to it than just that. :)

There might be some tricky vocabulary for you at this stage, but this is a rather up-to-date accurate (yet partial) summary of what Paladins are about: http://forum.estiah.com/index.php?topic=1554.msg76078#msg76078
