Also, @Spacemonkey, in fairness to OP, his headline "leave the healers at home" doesn't state that healing isn't necessary, but simply that his toon can double both tank & as a support healer, so (according to him) the group wouldn't require a 'dedicated healer' so the other 3 group members can be pure DPS, and therefore, do much more overall damage.
This is a nice build but I'm with Sord on this, I thought the last patch or so was suppose to make it more normal with Armors, where Tanks felt that NEED to be in Heavy Armor and how mages were the ones needing the Light. I do hope more is going to be done so that we don't see these Light Armor tanks dominating it as they have so far throughout the whole game. The number of armor buffs out there makes just reducing the damage reduction next to nothing as they can over-shoot the soft cap easily with a shield and buffs.
Also I just want to say, yet ANOTHER Templar build.....how about some love for the Nightblades? I know I sent a nice one in, been tweaking it as well but still the original was great. Just kinda seeing a massive trend still of the all Magicka skill based builds being shown here. Not to mention EVERYONE has to state in that they have ALL attribute points in Health. I think ZOS just needs to do away with Attribute points all together at this rate.....even though I don't do the all in health myself. Could just use some more evening out between Magicka and Stamina builds, loving the changes so far but could just be a bit more to make it easier to not get instantly laughed at and kicked for trying to be a Bow DPS or a melee DW DPS. I know they upped a lot of stuff but hey it's still happening a lot.
Just crazy to see yet again another tank toon wearing LA. Great build for the current system and way to make use of it.
I just hope this changes because it just doesn't seem right that "Tanks" are wearing LA. Just sad to see LA dominate the scene as a tank in higher end game content. I hope this is being addressed for the next patch in a serious way!
