hi all

i have a lvl 50 assassin but haven't been playing for a while. it has been so long that my original server is gone and all of my talent points have been refunded. can anyone give me advice about a respec to a pure PVE tank or recommend a recent topic/guide that would help me out?

This is a pretty standard pve tank build. You get good damage and survivability:

I don't have guide links for you offhand, but I'd suggest using your cooldowns and accuracy debuffs often. Especially during boss bursty moments. The above build is just as viable in pvp for pure tanking.

I would personally swap two points out of the Endurance talent and put them into the Thrashing Blades talent on Darkness' first tier. If you're Thrashing/Lacerating something(s), especially in order to proc an Energize, you may as well get that much more damage out of the ability's usage as well. Not to mention that the amount of HP you gain from the Endurance talent is rather negligible. Other than that, though, it looks solid.

True. The endurance % bonus isn't as noticeable until you hit like 25k health.
