    Question for those playing a foreign or Alpha NA Client.

    Hey guys, essentially I'm looking to make a dual wielding tank. Has anyone that has played the KR or RU (or NA alpha) versions of the game seen this done (or have done) This successfully?

    Right now I'm thinking either Soldier or Fighter may be able to fit that bill the best.

    Any suggestions or personal experiences that anyone can share would be great. (Only people that have played please.)

    It depends on what you want to do with your build. A shield would raise your physical defense and you would be able to tank a lot more in PvE and PvP.
    If you choose dualblades you lose this endurance and you're more like an offensive tank. Dealing decent damage with 'over average' survivability in combat with your Defense tree.

    I didn't play these classes myself so I cannot provide you any builds.

    Honestly, I would recommend just going into the game and taking skills which you might enjoy. This way you'll have the most fun playing. Sure your build might suck, but if you enjoyed it, what's the problem? You can tweak it later, or start a different character with a different build. But if you really want to check some dw tank builds, I suggest you go check the archeagesource forums!

    Really you can be and do whatever you want. It might not always be efficient but some people may be able to pull off weird skill sets. You have no limit on which weapons you can use, no matter your chosen skill sets. You can also mix up any 3 skill sets. Not only that but you can always reset your skill sets to redistribute skill points or even choose a new skill set to try out. Also from what I understand, old skill sets dont get reset, so you can return to them later and not need to re level them.

    No. You can use more skills from that tree with a shield but you can use the protection tree as a DPS aswell.

    That's true. You have to level up all trees to level 50. If you want to change a tree you have to level it up but you can always fall back to the old tree for about 1 gold.

    One thing to note, while a shield is NOT a must for the Protection tree, a couple abilities do require them and those abilities have some decently strong combo effects when combined with other trees like Warfare and Will.

    The Soldier build (Warfare, Prot, Will) is strong and has a lot of combos. Personally I like combos and making them happen, but let's face it - you wont always get them off. Especially in a PvP setting. In that sense, taking certain skills and being a Swiss army knife rather than a combo machine could potentially be more valuable.

    I'm completely confident though that dual wield tank build could work with some creativity. You can always swap in a shield and reassign your skills if the need be too.

    I would like to ask any veterans here, how the Anger System in Vitalism/Protection tree works? Is it randomly generated or need some condition to generate?
    Thank you.

    You recieve 100dmg, ur anger level is 100points up. If i remember correctly, cap is 3000, and there is nice healing skill that heals 30% of anger level + x ammount, so being a tank u get also healing spell for ~1500hp.

    I've read enough and talked to enough people to know this is absolutely not true.
