My 1st character is now a level 14 Stalwart Defender (dwarf) (28pt build obviously) pure Fighter - stats below are without ship-buffs.
He is a S&B fellow, currently with 60 AC (with 'parrying') using dwarven axes (or Greataxes for higher DPS). He does not have stellar gear after 2 months of gaming - 55 physical resistance rating (70 with SD's Impr Def stance). He survives OK but needs to shield bash when surrounded by the more nasty beasties.
HOWEVER when there are 1 or 2 invokers or other arcanes around, he quickly gets turned into a small rotating silver shrine. Very quickly. One miss-step near a Blade Barrier and ... small shrine. His saves are currently F19/R12/W7 (F23/R14/W9 with Impr Def stance - 24/15/10 with parrying item).
My Question: So what are the tricks and tweaks for a no-Evasion tank to survive magical onslaughts once his ship-buff resistances run out?
