Thread: T2 gear

  1. #1

    T2 gear

    Hello fellow Guardians

    I'm just returning to the game after many months absence and am trying to work out what gear I need to tank T2 raids. I have got myself the ash tanking gear that you can trade for, and mostly whatever jewellery that I have picked up along the way. I have slotted some essences in, but have 7 slots still to fill. My stats in tanking mode at the moment are:

    Morale - 104,589
    Power - 5,874
    Crit rat - 13,380 - 7.9%
    Finesse - 0 - 0%
    Psy mas - 113,209 - 213.8%
    Tac mas - 91,593 - 174.8%
    Resistance - 63,292 - 28.9%
    Crit def - 62,186 - 59.7%
    Inc heal - 3,232 - 7.3%
    Block - 69,583 - 18%
    Parry - 43,267 - 17.2%
    Evade - 16,255 - 6.6%
    Psy mit - 96,905 - 61.0%
    Tac mit - 76,361 - 60.0%

    Could someone point me in the right direction of what I should do with the last 7 essences?

    Many thanks

    I'm at work so I cannot check my stats real time but from what I remember I can note that Block Rating and Physical Mastery are slightly high. Have you slotted any Block essences? Your morale is also extremely low to tank a T2 raid. All 7 of your free essence slots should be vitality. With a good group and some practice you should be able to finish the raid even on T2C but definetely on T2 to unlock the better gear.

    Your priority in T2 gearing should be Vitality. In order of importance from most important to least important: 1. Vitality, 2. Finesse, 3. Incoming Healing, 4. Anything else(not even worth bothering).

    Very useful. No block essences, it is all purely from my gear and shield, but I did have a stray physical mastery essence that I'd missed and a couple of old essences I've upgraded. I've had a go at upgrading my jewellery and actually ended up replacing quite a few of the essences I already had. I'm now much happier with how it's turned out. I have:

    Morale - 139,334
    Power - 5,874
    Crit rat - 19,425 - 10.7%
    Finesse - 34,253 - 9.3%
    Psy mas - 92,311 - 176.1%
    Tac mas - 88,129 - 168.4%
    Resistance - 73,886 - 32.1%
    Crit def - 52,847 - 55.7%
    Inc heal - 3,232 - 7.3%
    Block - 68,284 - 18% (25.7% partial)
    Parry - 51,015 - 18% (19.7% partial)
    Evade - 23,565 - 8.3% (11.6% partial)
    Psy mit - 96,905 - 61.0%
    Tac mit - 69,274 - 59.7%

    This is all without any extra buffs. I have all vitality essences, except 2 finesse and 1 tact mit. However, I'm going to replace the tact mit one as with guardian's ward, that will still put me over 60%. Is 140k enough morale, or should I add another vitality essence?

    Many thanks

    you will have a hard time successfully tanking the current raid in t2 with only 140k morale and very low finesse. try to get them both up a bit more.

    i have 200+ morale raid buffed and 63k finesse (15,1%, only 1 golden finesse essence, rest from gear), any other slot vitality.

    140k is fine. Its uhm over 160k buffed? We constantly use sub 150k moraled cappies as tanks. Its just do you find group as up and coming guardian, with current bloated morales where properly geared guards have 220-230k morale. Check your virtues, considering your low evade you must use 2x and 2x earring and rings with tactical mitigation but its very low with that. Get 2x slot gloves and cloak (allegiance rep). And mordor relics if you dont have them. I feel like you dont since that low evade. I havent slotted single evade essence and im 50k evade if I remember right. So even a bit worse gear it should be closer to 40k

    Other option is to get beorning might gloves, if you feel allegiance rep is too grindy/takes long time, as a backup. Those are ok as well. Gives evade. Superior to normal 1 slot heavy might gloves. But you must still use few purples with that low evade or no relics? I didnt have that low evade even with 10 light gear.
