I guess its standard for deftard.

Futile till u get 0% ctbc, defender, deft defender, parry. Spare points in wounds.

With calming winds, perfect defences and using ef you got one of the highet avoidance in game ;p Add vaul buffer to that and all u see on screen is block/evade/disrupt/parry/absorb. Change stances properly and you good to go :P
thanks man...I probably should try this, been 2h for most of my SM life lol

Can you give me your renown points allocation? Since I think SM has the worst block rate compared to Knights and IBs, just wondering that's all
Ya I put max into block, disrupt & dodge, then i do futile strikes until 0% or near, then rest to parry, and as i got to 70+ i found points to put into that one that is -% dmg in and out. Could also throw change into wounds.

I also think SM has very high block capability. With perfected defenses tactic, the 4pc bonus from vanguard set, and crushing advance i hit usually around 50% block in perfect stance.

Is the highest EHP build for warband play.
PoH -> CA / SS -> HTL
And you HTL until you need to WW (on warband lead command for burst but not morale drop), you need to use GW, or your perfect stance drops.

See, here is whr I don't like this. Tanks should imo go two routes, once their chances to be crit has been properly reduced: stacking block and strength, or stacking parry/dodge/disrupt and toughness/armor. The first allows the character to be of actual use in the enemy lines, making themselves a thread that worth to fight instead of a minor annoyance that you can detaunt. Also works in PvE. The second relays in avoiding entirely damage, and then you can focus in some extra offense.

I would also use my brain, cause you should not spend 15 renown points to reduce 1,5% chances to be crit. Get always full investment from your renown points. Freaking buy a talisman, or even don't if you know the piece of gear you are aiming for will drop it for you.

Ye good luck being useful in rvr as a snb tank that stacks str. Threat? What kind of a threat can a snb tank be in rvr? In smaller scale maybe, but not even then. You simply lack burst. Bo was good when he had THC for snb, but now even he isn't a threat anymore. A tank is useful if he can survive, that's why he's called a tank. You don't need offensive stats when going snb, especially in rvr, you won't make a difference anyway.

Deftard tanks don't need any offense, it's useless. Dps is there to deal damage, tanks should focus on tanking (if you want to deal damage as a tank go 2h). Also, your ctbc can go into negative, and that's good because then you reduce your opponents chance to crit (if I got it right), and for tanks that's a must. So even if you hit 0% ctbc, it's not completely useless to invest more into it.

A few weeks ago Zarbix hosted a Six v. Six event and live-streamed it. Because the guild I was in at that time decided not to participate, I went to watch. I noticed one curious thing. Every Swordmaster I saw participating as part of one of the organized groups was playing 2H spec.
