Hi,

I wanted to know if it is viable the idea of a warden frost tank specially for Battlegrounds, which principal role would be snare, immobilize and debuff enemies or maybe I should think better in a templar or dragon knight?

    Heavy attacks with frost staff, tremorscale, and that other heavy attack proc set (name escapes me atm), can pull off pretty good burst combined with sub assault and a dd skills like dive or clench. The rest of the time you're tanky enough to hold out against attackers and hinder them for your team.

    A magwarden tank with ice focus in battlegrounds to CC and Debuff wouldnt be bad. Give it a try, DKs are masters of CC as it is, but Wardens are not bad either and their Portals being traps can be used as a huge advantage in BGs, it also has considerable range. The only big downside is of course that they don't have AoE Minor Maim in the same way as the DKs, being just a proc chance and not always there, but they have other things that are huge bonuses instead. Like great sustain, great ulti build up and great healing and mitigation ultimates.

    Give it a shot. Also the guy that talked about orcs, ignore that :tongue: look at his profile and you will see its basically all he says, its just a for funs thing, nothing harmful.

    All points in to Health + max health and mag recovery drink is the meta for the Warden tanks.

    This video was taken in NO CP bgs

    Missing a few key skills in that video though. Corrupting pollen, need a frost staff for wall of frost, and deep fissure. Essentially lots of aoe damage and defile. In drago n bones doc you can use thorvulkan monster set to get major and minor defile. Will be super annoying to fight against in no CP BGs tbh.

    @paulsimonps
    Doesn't the chilled effect give minor maim? If so- wouldn't his Impaling Shards cause the same effect as Choking Talons?
    Want to enjoy the game more? Try both PvP (crybabies) and PvE (carebears). You'll get a better perspective on everyone's opinion.

    @Savos_Saren

    Yes, and I do mention that, the difference I point out is that Choking Talons has a 100% proc chance with no possible immunity against it. Chilled has a very low proc chance even for a warden with AoE direct damage such as Impaling Shards. It won't have the same up time nor reach. Obviously using a Frost Staff in addition to it will up the chance, but its still just a chance. Choking Talons will always be above Impaling Shards in that regard cause its 100% chance.

    Side note, some mobs are immune to Chilled and can therefor not be affected by that source of minor maim, making it so that unless you go around heroic slashing them all you will have a really bad up time on the Minor Maim in group pulls. Obviously Heroic Slash is more than enough in Single Target, aka boss fights. oh and lastly, obviously some players in PvP can just as mobs be immune to chill but that is for PvP, this is mainly PvE.

    Nord or Orc with Permafrost Set+Troll King+Asylum SnB and other 5 piece on frontbar. I believe Absorb magic and Shimmering shield should both proc Permafrost.

    Haven't tested that setup, just spitball theorycraft.
