Since i've finished with my main character build (cipher) i've started to have some difficulties at the beginning of the game without having a pure tanky guy in my party. (Eder seems ok, but he is far from good at tanking)

Could you guys please share pure tanky build (all atributes, talents and skills are aimed for taking damage, no DD at all) considering latest patch.

A tanky ego paladin that clips casters/archers: http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/83338-class-build-the-dull-runner-caster-clipper-paladin-tank/?hl=%2Bthe+%2Bdull+%2Brunner

Tanky fighter who also does good damage: http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/83612-class-build-the-engineer-shocking-dps-fighter-artillery-tank/?hl=%2Bthe+%2Bengineer


One of the best frontlines I ever had was two paladins - one with Zealous Endurance, the other with Zealous Focus, both with FoD, Quick Switch + guns, Coordinated Attacks and Marking Weapons (Shame or Glory, Cladhaliath) and both with heraldic shields (Outworn Buckler, Little Savior) plus a chanter tank with Redfield: http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/83491-class-build-the-drakes-ambassador-searing-mesmerizing-chanter-tank/?hl=%20drake#39;s

Even on low levels these three guys could easily hold the line and clip some damgerous enemy squishies while the back row would deal damage. Then, after the chanter got the Dragon Slashed, the front line also did a lot of damage. After lvl 13 (two times Sacred Immolation plus Dragon Slashed) it was game over for all foes.
