Alright, so ofc we go for the tank set pieces, but other than that, what do you guys go for? Full 248 dps gear and end up t around 133 k health? Use the 246 discipline enhancements and lethal b mods for more HP? What about alacrity, do you use any at all? Ive been experimenting with different setups but I cant make up my mind about what works best.

Im mostly curious about setups for ranked as regs are not as demanding gearwise.

best set up is to use dps gear while being in tank spec

Not quite. Tank armorings, lethal b mods, high endurance augments, and high endurance crit and alacrity enhancements work the best. Good dps, and around 150k health. It'll be tough to kill you.

In the world of skank tanking there are no perfect number targets just a big general window to play in. Boosting your health pool for PT and VG is an obvious step. Helps with guard and healer support. All defensive/utilities play off of your total health, so maximize your total health and sudddenly a 3% heal isn’t so insignifigant that it makes you cry(just weep a little). You can try all crit, but PT has a lot of built in crit and the hard hits aren’t that great, alacrity can be nicer because the only helpful thing you can do in a WZ is debuff incoming heals on your opponents. Just mess around, and when you cross paths with the few of us whom still play this build make sure to check how we’re gearing and performing. Also...be sure to find good peeps to queue with...well played PT tanks can be great support, but you’re not going to be carrying. Just be prepared for the “couldn’t we find a juggernaut” cracks in unranked.
