Rogue Tank Best in Slot runes

Do you want to Tank raids with your level 60 Rogue? Then you must Rune your items! Runes are consumable items that get attached to your items. Runing your items can be a bigger upgrade than getting a tier 2 raid item.

For example runing your Chest, Feet and Gloves with Lustrous Resolute Rune will provide you with 165 extra endurance. Applying two additional Lustrous Adamant Rune to your weapon and shield increase this number to 275 endurance. This results in about 6700 additional health*

Some item slots do not have Rogue specific Tank runes…. [to do]

These lustrous runes are expensive but remember that you can transfer them to new gear with a Rune Unsocketing Apparatus….

*Exact hp gain depends on your health since it scales

Tips
  • Lustrous Runes are worth +- 330 platinum
  • Sometimes Runes can be found cheaper on Auction (due to loot chests)
  • Almost all of these runes have cheap Auroral versions costing you only 10-20 platinum!
  • Rune Unsocketing Apparatus can retrieve your rune from items
  • Rune Unsocketing Apparatus can be bought in the Rift store>Services for credits
  • Players sell Rune Unsocketing Apparatus for platinum
  • Crafting dailies are a great way to gain reputation with the factions (600-1600 per quest)
Additional info for tanks
  • Dexterity: 1 point of Dodge and 1 point Deflect
  • Strength: gives Parry
