Tanking Requirements

I am new-ish to this game, but not new to tanking other MMO's and was wondering what stats are required to tank the different tiers and difficulties.

I play an Assassin and have done two Operations so far and my current stats are... (not buffed in any way)

21772 hp
5767 armor
38.81% damage reduction
25.58% defence chance
28.37% shield chance (48.37% with dark ward)
47.86% shield absorption
102.45% accuracy

So what level Operation would I be able to tank?
Also if someone could suggest how much I need to improve to tank the higher difficulty levels.


Also posting this in a different forum to reach a wider audience

Should be able to tank everything from Storymode EC and below, given your healers are equally or better geared.

drop all accuracy and get shield in place. This should get to atleast 40% shield without DW. once you do that, I am sure you can tank HM EV/KP

Pump up your shield and absorb primarily as your defense chance will increase with better gear automatically. If you get rakata, swap out anything with accuracy to a shield and you should be ready for HM EC in full rakata -accuracy+shield
