So this is my survival build. Pretty much not matter what you walk into you are walking away. Melle mobs I just stand right on top of them and beat them down. It is slow going not gonna lie, but even the worst combination of mini-boss abilities is no problem.
I use a shield and 1h weapon. My gear is +armor and +Resilance. In addition to Inteligence, that makes for what I think is the best tank in game. I can kite, and stand and take it. The fights I admit are a bit slower paced then a DPS go all out and hope not to get hit build. But you make up for it by not chain dying on certain mobs.
Overall I love this build. Until 54 I was dps only. I switched to shield and Hell became a cake walk. I still do 10k dps, and I have 69% armor reducation currently, with about 55% to all resistances. IN addition to shields chance to block. I am not even in very good gear. No heroics, and most gear still under 60.
Do I miss waiding though enemies not elite? Yes. But I don't miss the chain dying to certain combo's of elites and losing my Nephalem 100% gold and treasure find.
Best part is compared to DPS gear, Max level protection gear cost next to nothing.
So what do you guys think?
