I'm not sure where this thread belongs so just made it here.
Let's talk about what can be done to make life of those who play such hybrids easier.
Set bonuses tied to shells is already great deal.
But can we go further?
Maybe, Immortal & Darkness sets variants that come with DPS stats?
What do you think?

how about no. Skank tanks have throttle the meta for pvp for some time. Especially since heal/dps hybrids are not viable. They are the only role that gets to double dip in the best of both worlds. A skank jugg can hit for 25k+ but then have a dcd cycle to match any tank. At this point they dont need to be in the game, there could be variance in types of tanks within their role but this role creep with dps stats is not what is needed.

How about No? Who gives this right? If I choose to use DPS mods, armoring and enhancements then I do, and no one should have that right to change my idea of my type of modding. Yes, currently we are allowed to mod the set bonus gear as we wish. Additionally there is actual set bonus gear for pvp aspects where you can add in your tanking mods accordingly. As a High Endurance Tank, I will be wanting to add what I wish to add to my gear. And if others don't like it, then oh well. At the end of the day, it is all about "PLAY YOUR WAY", is it not?

And why would I want to make my tanks just like anyone else's set up? That is utter foolishness, nor is that the way of the Sith

Eric, Devs, what say you?

Hello there!
Playing hybrids from the tree era, I'm here to give some light on the subject.

This is what I concluded gearing:

Berserker's 4 pieces for: +2% critical, +3% all damage dealt +6% damage received
Tormented 2 pieces for : +2% Power
Amplified Champion's 1 piece for: Armor penetration Amplifier

Armorings: 306 Immortal's max endurance
Mods: 306 Vengeance/Fury max endurance>power
Enchantments: 306 Vengeance/Fury max endurance>critical

Relics: Focus retribution and serendipitous assault

Ear and Implant: 306 Vengeance/Fury max endurance>critical>power

Tactical: Grit Teeth

Amplifiers: Armor Penetration Max

Augments: 14x Critical>Power

Have Fun

Yeah skanks bring problems to the game. I think they should be broken, not supported. Tanks are for holding agro and mitigating damage, not deal copious amounts of damage.

Skanks shouldn`t ever exist, its not tank role to deal high damage. In 5.10 they were blocked, that means BW does not want skanks.

For all those complaining, its part of the game, so deal with it. If you cant beat them, then join them. Dont get mad because someone is smarter than you and figured out how to get the best of both classes. And another note, skank tanking is so much fun!!!!!!!!! With 6.0 you dont even have to have to use tank gear, just throw a dps set on a tank and bam you can pull just about the same numbers as a dps spec while having the mitigation of a tank. really who wouldnt like that???i

Using *skank* or any other not supposted to exist build in game is not being smarter than others, its more like exploit. Yet still they are not as broken as people seem to think. I tried PT skank once, and I regret it a lot. 1st, because I feel bad with it, and 2nd I got very very disappointed of it. I got too used to AP bursty playstyle.
