Resource Management & Rotation

As a tank, this build has no rotation. But some tips I can provide you with are:

  1. Don’t actually use absorb magic as it is very expensive. It is only on your bar for the reduced block cost buff and the amount of damage blockable buff.
  2. Keep Boundless Storm active at all times. Boundless storm is very important in keeping your resistances high.
  3. Use Aggressive horn as much as you can as this skill provides a large buff for your group.
