Tanking stats?


Tafkan

Recommended Posts

So, I figured I'd start levelling again, after a while, and decided I want to become a GWD tank. How high stats are recommended for that, and which gear should I start saving money for?

It depends on what God you'll be going to. If you want Bandos, I'd follow my stats as a template. Any tank needs a high Defence level, and depending on the activity a high Range or Magic level would be nice. Guthan's is a must for Bandos at least, and a high Summoning level (79+) is very helpful in GodWars.

Well, I was specifically thinking of Bandos. I take it I'll want to have maxed defense and 90ish attack/strength then?

For Bandos (only boss I have any experience with :P ) Try get 90+ defence, a decent strength, and attack and get guthans. Maybe a bunyip or unicorn to heal.

 

I wouldn't use a bunyip. It has a slow healing rate (2 hp every 15 secs, 8 hp a minute) and as a tank you will take a lot of damage in one hit, so a bunyip wouldn't really cover it. Best thing would be a War Tortoise holding extra sharks/brews and when thats gone use either a Elemental Titan or a Unicorn. But once you use those it might seem that you are going to have to leave soon.

Attack/Strength don't really matter too much, since your stats will be brewed down anyway.

 

You need attack and strength to heal using guthans.

If you want to tank bandos get your att/str to at least 80 or 85 and your defence to 90+. Use guthans and a war tortoise or a terrorbird, but the war tortoise is a lot better and you're close to 67 summoning anyway.
