The purpose of this Guide is to cover most important aspects of tanking,explaining everything about the basics you need to know and understand, in order to become a great Tank.
This Guide will not go too deep into detail about Stat-/Skill-Specs, proper gemming or anything else, but will provide several recommendations.
It will still be your own job to make best out of it, and improve your Skill by experience and knowledge.

The Vanguard-Class is the standard (Main-) Tank, but also foremost Melee-Class in Revelation.
Vanguards are Leaders and valiant Protectors on the Battelfield, because of their impressive array of defensive abilities.
They have extreme survival abilities and control skills to endure damage or give their teammates opportunities to attack, defend a foothold.
Also it has a decent damage mitigation due to its AoE-Abilities.

Class Role:
• Primary: Main Tank
• Secondary: Off-DPS

Combat Style:
• Melee – physical combat.

Battle tactics and combat rotations are kind of intuitive

Class Advantages:
• heavy defense
• Leader-Class (PvX)
• can easily endure long Fights

Class Disadvantages:
• weaker Attack-Power than other Classes
• Close Combat

Team Position:
A formidable tank, protected by an enormous shield, the Vanguard leads the charge and protects teammates.

Main Weapon: Spear/Halbert
Secondary Weapon: Shield


Vigor (CN = Constitution)

So we want to have lots of it!

Spirit (CN = Spirit)

Spirit will give us Magic-Def. and HP aswell.
Depending on Bonus- and Gear-Stats,
you might want to have few more Points on Spirit,
to compansate the gap between Phys.- and Magic-Def.


Strength (CN = Power)

Strength: I would recommend using at least 100 Points on Strength,
for overall DPS aswell as for Aggro.


Lv 49
Stat-Overview NA

Lv 59
Stat-Overview CN

Stat-Ratio: every 4 Spirit -> 3 Vigor -> 1 Strength (Example)

Following Builds are just used to be examples!
Bonus Stats are included, in those Builds! (Basic+Bonus)
You need to adjust it yourself, depending on Gear/Level and Knowledge.

Lv 49         Lv59         Lv 69
Strength 50-100 80-120 100-150
Spirit 130-170 180-220 200-250+
Intelligence 1 1 1
Dexterity 1 1 1
Vigor 110-150 170-210 200-240+

Preferribly go for higher Tank-Stats (Vigor and Spirit)


Lv 49         Lv 59         Lv69
Strength 100-150 150-200 180-230
Spirit 80-130 150-170 170-200
Intelligence 1 1 1
Dexterity 40-60 60-80 80-100
Vigor 80-110 120-150 150-170

You can adjust the Dex. for Crit and use more points on Strength, or Tank-Stats instead (depending in Gear)

Please keep in mind, that the Hybrid-Build is supposed to be for experienced Players, that already have a moderate Knowledge about the Class, and know how to handle it.
This Build can be very difficult and also expensive, at the endgame content.


Lv 49         Lv59           Lv69
Strength 100-150 150-240 230-300
Spirit 50-80 80-100 100-120
Intelligence 1 1 1
Dexterity 80-90 90-100 100-120
Vigor 40-70 70-90 90-110

You can adjust stats and try to go for more Crit/Strength, depending on Gear
