Introduction

Welcome to the DottzGaming.com Sorcerer Tank, The Panzer! This build is aimed at people who primarily run veteran dungeons, but the final setup can also make a great trials off-tank, and recommendations for trials main tank are also made below. The main setup helps keep enemies off-balanced, increasing group DPS, as well as increasing your group members’ resistances. Also, the beginner setup is extremely easy to get. Make sure to check back often as it will be updated after every patch.

Resource Management & Rotation

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

  1. Keep Boundless Storm active at all times. Boundless storm is very important in keeping your resistances high.
  2. Use Aggressive horn as much as you can as this skill provides a large buff for your group.
