As title says I'm not looking for a 1000 word essay going off subject and not being remotely helpful by not answering the question I posted. (Which is what I have experienced so far)

All I am looking for is the answer to the following, for darkness end game pve tanking:

How much defence rating?
How much accuracy?
How much shield rating?
How much absorb rating?

Thanks in advance!

Don't bother with defense. You get more than enough of it if you're gearing for tank stats, since it's everywhere.
No accuracy at all, tanks get a passive +10%, which is enough.
Shield and absorb rating share the same slot, so you split them. Have between 50-65% of your stat budget for them in shield, rest in Absorb. How much shield is pretty much personal preference.
The more shield and the less absorb you have, the more damage you take overall, but you're less prone to spike damage and vice versa.

Defense and accuracy - dont actively acquire, as you will get it anyways

Ultimately any split of shielding/absorb between 40-60% will be fine, as the difference is minimal at max stats.

Ive found max endurance with 40-60% absorb/shielding split to be the most effective for survival, according to in game, parsing, and theorycrafting.

this is why i get confused they told me get 1400-1700 absorb rest on shield chance. is this wrong?
and when you say 40-60% that means 40 in one and 60 in the other?

thanks.

Not sure what the others above are going on about, but I'd go with more shield (I run 1800 shield and 1300 absorb). More shield means taking more damage, sure, but less spikes. But yes, you get passive 110% accuracy so don't run any of that.

Tank stats hit really low diminishing-return areas especially defence so you might want to trade in the token unlettered mods and enhancements for higher endurance ones that sacrifice tertiary stats with little to no effect on your mitigation overall, particularly lethal B mods, whatever the enhancements with more endurance are called. The higher endurance gives your healers a little extra breathing space for failed mechanics and the minuscule drop in mitigation can be very much made up through proper use of your over 9000 cooldowns.

Depends on gear rating and augments. But My DPS Shadow has 130 HP but its fully 248 with augments ( the tier below the newly added ones).
