Battalion Defender: How It Works & Is It Worth Using? (PvE)

    It basically heals for 2500-5000 per second while perma blocking which isnt usually what tanks do. A healer can put out more than that with a HoT.

    I would say its a decent starter tank set but pretty useless for challenging content.

    Actually can be quite useful for challenging content. I've seen other tanks use it for no death/hard mode/speed run achievements in the Wolfhunter+Dragonbones DLC dungeons. Also vBRP for the no death title of "The Unchained" and just today I used it to help beat vet Frostvault Hard Mode.

    Hmm, good to know. The heal it puts out seems completely inconsequential compared to what a healer can put out with any given spell.

    Outside of trials, Lose the healer. Grab another DPS. The tank kind of off heals and takes care of herself. What’s not to like?

    Completely agree. I use it paired with Troll King for the same thing (HM, no death, and speed runs). I run it on a sorc tank with twilight and I can tank/heal the dungeons with 3 dps. It's a very effective set.
