So... I really wanted to play an stealth fighter capable of surviving and taking advantage in world pvp situations. But, seems like I got to be the designated tank, at least in the non-endgame dungeons, the ones you encounter when you are leveling up.

So that's the question. Can the Blighter deal with these kind of dungeons as a tank? What limitations would he have?

Would like to know this as well from those with experience..

Blighter is all well and good until you come to Howling Abyss. Switch out shadowplay with auramancy, or die repeatedly.

I tanked GHA on my Blighter in hasla gear 2 days ago. You need a cloth wearer or a set of stone to do the third boss and someone in your party needs to have wings but don't say it just won't work. Its not that bad

Ok so it IS possible, thanks guys.

One last question.
How hard would it be to get Auramancy to level 35 or something as a secondary skill tree? Would there be any penalty if I don't max it up? (besides not being able to reach the max lvl skills)

Its possible sure, but unless you are well geared and you healer and DPS well geared, you'll likely hit some rough spots.

Blighter can do it, but I really like shrug it off/mocking howl combo. Makes great aggro generation.

tanked the entire dungeon (multiple times) in leather as an abolisher. cloth armor is not needed.
