Thanks! I bookmarked your guide. I suddenly changed my mind to make my BH a tank and I needed something to familiarize myself with how thats going to be.

A few things I noticed which are incorrect.

Ion Cylinder gives 15% shield chance, not twenty.
Shields themselves have 20% absorption and 5% shield chance.
There is no "BASE" shield chance or absorption.
So shield chance is 32% total, not 47%.
Total for absorption is correct.
