Been playing my build a bit, amazing, you survive when you expect to die, in the middle of 5 arcane beams and plague.
The tank DH is back!
It was never gone ;) It's just that.. TankDHs won't perform as well as RF-SP types or the other more DH-ish gameplay/skill build :)
Of course the tank DH thread continued a long while (I left after the nerf to JS). But it never really worked again with the same efficiency and popularity (I may be wrong).
But the builds in this thread IMO are not inferior to RF. Sure we don't have the DPS but we don't have to die, kite, get disrupted etc as much, esp in solo games. Bombardment is really strong in the best circumstances, but it has too many weaknesses against certain mobs.
