I'm more interested in face tanking with minimal kiting, because if I have to kite then I'll just play my other toons who don't have to run around all day.
I know I can drop my DPS, increase armor, resist and HP. I can get more LOH and facetank but my DPS would be low and it would take me way too long to kill anything.
I think you're misunderstanding the play style I'm talking about. During combat, I don't kite—I move around when it's advantageous to do so. I use Dashing Strike when I need to stop attacking this mob for some reason (rotating sentries, Blazing Guardian INCOMING!, Desecrator, etc.) and want to immediately begin attacking that mob, which is in safer territory. So the sequence is usually like this:
1. Go nuts with Thunderclap.
2. Spider-sense tingling . . . DS to another target.
3. Resume step #1.
I don't think it's "kiting" if you never leave the room. I stand toe-to-toe with Magewraith elites in the Vault, purely on Ascension, Faith in the Light, Hard Target spam, and Dashing Strike. My up-time in a fight like this is high, but I wouldn't count what I'm doing as "face-tanking." I rarely have to reactivate Sweeping Wind (happens if I'm up against something crazy, like Blazing Guardian psychopaths).
Hope that helps.
