Thanks regardless... /bow.
I just want to remind everyone there is a message on each guide which tells you the last time it was looked over. The tanking guide says:

"As of game update 5.9.3: Fame and Fortune, critical hits can now be shielded against in PvP. This does not change my gearing recommendations. The negligible improvement to tanksí survivability gained by stacking Shield Rating and Absorb Rating is not worth the DPS loss (except in select cases where you expect to be tank tunneled)."

So after reading that is there anything you are specifically looking for that is out of date? Rambol and myself keep this updated per patches. There hasn't been any real tanking changes since 5.7. If you believe we missed something please contact me directly on forums, twitter or twitch.
