Guide

This Build isn't FULLY thought out yet!!! Please NOTE that this build was devised as I (chibisann) was playing the game.

Yes, I have played this game before the thought of this build. I figured that the best way to actually come up with a build was to play the game and think "What is it that I want exactly? I want a tank who will be able to attack fast and potently." As I leveled, I look at the skill tree and theory crafted.
----------------------------------------
How to Utilize this Build Properly...
----------------------------------------
Tank: You can soak up dmg. ANY DMG! Don't be afraid to fight. (TIPS: Always pay attention to your health. USE your potions, but WISELY.) You Passives will ensure you with amazing amounts of high sustain. Taking Iron Reflexes in your Passive Skill Tree is CRUCIAL!! You will also need the right armor for proper tanking. (look at Suggested Gear)

Damage Per Second: Because you can Tank so much, you can also spam your Dual Strike. Because you are a Duelist, your Mana Pool isn't crappy. With the right items, your Mana Regen will be good enough to sustain your Abilities. Taking Mana Leech for a Support Gem wouldn't be bad.

Your Rejuvination Totem, and Warlord's Mark are an ABSOLUTE MUST!!! Though the totem may be worthless in PvP, in PvE, it is an extremely Powerful tool. Soloing Vaal was beyond easy thanks to Totem and the Mark.

You also have those Granite Flasks. 1 Granite Flask = +3000 Armour for 4s. Consumes 30 of 60 charges.
Note that Flasks DO NOT STACK, but rather have a Que based system.
