Here is the build I put together: Wars VK Hybrid "Voidshield" http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0cghA.E00zV0sRRsM0M.t0sx0z.VuoVz.-9

Hey guys been way too long since I posted a new tank spec here on the ZAM. (not since somewhere around 1.6) Here is my current tanking build for raiding anything from experts to PF/ID content. Tried tested and proven to be just fine in all ways from threat building to mitigation and hit points.

Heres what I posted for my friends at in -Legacy- (Wolfbane):
I put this one together because of DPSers pulling off me in AoE fights when 1.11 first hit. This build gets and holds AoE threat so easily it is perfect for anything, especially chain pulling experts. As a fluke, through spending points where they seemed to make sense, you also end up with the highest Endurance build possible so far as I can tell. There is also a lot of resistance/armour/block perks as well making this build very well rounded.

You can also mix it as 34RV or 34PAL with the 16 and 16 in the sister trees and come up with the same endurance, and similar resistance/armour perks but there are reasons I went with VK...

Highlights about this build: High HP, Devouring Shield(VK)/Rift Shield(VK) and Crest of the Shadow(RV) for extra mitigation when needed, Fusion of Flesh (VK cool down that heals you up when hit with magic damage), 2xSingle Target Taunts with spark and Void Summon, !!Spammable AoE 1-button threat building macro!!

Buffs: Shield of the Hero(PAL), Crest of the Abyss(RV), Binding of Affliction(RV), Accord of Power(VK), Accord of Resilience(VK), Void(VK)

Macros:

1-Button threat builder:

#show Tempest
suppressmacrofailures
cast Tempest
cast Cyclone Strike
cast Sweeping Strike
cast Ragestorm
cast Ravaging Strike

I use this macro 90% of the time unless I specifically need to use single target only, such as on Warmaster in ID. Then I do have two single target builders:

ST Macro:

#show Soul Sickness
suppressmacrofailures
cast Soul Sickness
cast Spark
cast Aggressive Block
cast Retaliation

ST ability:
Ravaging Strike

Just have you Ravaging Strike beside your ST macro and use it as your spam attack. When SS is ready again use your macro until you put Aggressive block up and then go back to Ravaging.

Abilities to have on the bar:
Devouring Shield
Rift Shield
Crest of the Shadow
Fusion of Flesh (remember this only shield/heals you agains non-physical damage, many bosses and mobs have non-physicaly so it can be used in many situations)
Face Slam (Interrupt)
Void Summon (Pull in taunt)
Spark (Taunt)
Airbirst (Taunt)


Thats it! I hope it helps and goes to good use. Basically you will not loose threat ever by spamming your AoE macro even on single target fights, I use it in most of our raids.
