Classicon knight mage Knight / Mage -- Inquisitor[ | ]

The Knight/Mage combination emphasizes the ability to do some heavy magical Light damage with the proper support while being the best magical tank currently in game. Elites Holy Light Domain(15) combined with Hall of Order(40) make for a great tanking tool to boost your defense and reduce the damage dealt from mobs and bosses. Lightning Shield(20) is another tanking boost on top of Whirlwind Shield that is great to have for the multiple target aggro. Mana Shield(30) an additional shield/damage reduction skill that is handy for tanking; combined with Magic Healing(60) that gives a small heal. Confessor(70) another great tank elite skill that reduces Threaten cooldown time from 8 seconds to 4 seconds.
