This is my final conclusion for PvE balance.
To balance tanks, we need to balance Conq - Guard, to balance them with DT as well there is 2 ways:
- Replace DT VoM, with an ability similar to Shadowed Soul with added Spell penetration, Magic Dmg buff and it’s anti CCs. Make it something worthy like other class Gold Perks.
This will nerf DT so not much crits right? Well, we can add additional Critical Chance on combos/ feats as other classes have in a similar and balanced level and make bosses respond to dmg for DT as they respond for other tanks as well, by tweaking their ‘‘Protection’’ thus our magic dmg will not over-aggro them.
Many might not agree but if you know how to proc your dmg output this wont be a problem. That’s how every other tank builds dmg anyway.
And boost Guardian dmg as much as necessary and lower Conqueror armor penetration a bit.
Unless we increase spell penetration/ armor penetration after that as well, for the other tanks in a similar level but ‘‘DPS classes will hate us for that’’ so i don’t believe that will be good.
- Boost Guardian dmg. It’s the most simple way.
As for PvP, i can’t reach a final conclusion because of inexperience, so i leave it to those who know better.
