1.5 Stat Priority
Absorption (50%) = Shield (50%) > Defense (15%) >= Endurance > Aim >= Accuracy (110%)
so its 15/50/50... at least the need for defense is much lower than on the other 2 tanks. if these numbers are correct, powertech tank is by far the easiest to gear.
Powertechs have a much lower base defense than other tanks. No tank is "easier" to gear than other tanks, although performance can vary depending on gear level (a low geared powertech will seem better than a low geared assassin).
