I've been told that tanking relics are useless and to use dps relics as they give you more endurance. I don't want to be an endurance tank by sacrificing mitigation for endurance.

Please give me an idea of specifically what you would use, and specifically why?

They aren't useless, but the gains are minimal for the reactive warding and fortunate redoubt relics since they give you more defense stats and odds are you do not need more defense.

The gear you get from command crates gives you way more defense than you need, with diminishing returns anything over 3000 points in a secondary stat is useless (you can also use 2000 points as the cut-off for a secondary stat, but there is a minor improvement from 2000 to 3000).

There is one tank relic that has endurance instead of defense - that is the relic of shielding amplification.

If you want more mitigation, go with the relics Shielding Amplifiction and Serendipitous assualt.
Stealthy heals, stealthy dps, stealthy tank.
