The Enchanted Tank uses earth magic to reduce damage with the help of Mantra of Earth and Obsidian Flesh, which makes the elementalist immune to magic and highly resistant to physical damage.

  • [[Sliver Armor@16] for solo farming.
  • [[Ebon Battle Standard of Honor] with Sliver Armor
  • [[I Am Unstoppable!] in areas with KD.
  • [[Aura of Restoration@10] or [[Ether Feast@9] for a self heal.
  • [[Earth Attunement@16] - usually unnecessary.



  • Weapon - The highest energy staff you can afford (The Hourglass staff is ideal) WITH 20% Enchanting mod
  • Armor - Radiant Insignias on all pieces


  • Maintain Stone Striker and Mantra of Earth for energy gain and damage reduction
  • Maintain Obsidian Flesh at all times by using Glyph of Swiftness to reduce its recharge time
  • Maintain Armor of Earth and Stone flesh to further reduce damage


  • Interrupts
  • E-denial (debilitating shot can be a pain)
  • Losing the healer
  • Non-targeted and non-spell disenchants
  • Degen/conditions


  • The downside of this build is that it possesses no self healing and depends on a healer to stay alive. Albeit the damage this build takes is minimal; it cannot hold out indefinitely without a monk.
  • Any damage that is less than or equal to 162 will be reduced down to zero damage. Keep in mind, it reduces Damage, not life loss, sacrifices or life stealing.
