But that's your bread and butter, sweetheart. :<
AND CONCENTRATION IS USELESS FOR A TANK. 'nuff said.
Since you're focus isn't DPS I'm assuming you're going for Tank or Off-Tank.
Personally I would recommend skilling (or even maxing!) Shield Fortress.
Reason: This skill can save butts. You may not need it early in the game when running normal dungeons, but later you'll be happy to have it. Just imagine all your party members are close to death except you. Your HP is enough to survive a few seconds or even minutes and you have currently aggro on the mob. Use Shield Fortress to decrease the damage you and the others are gaining while the priest/sorc heals or revives the rest of the peeps. This scenario happened to me more than just once and I'm always happy to survive a boss rather than dying millions of times on him.
Well, hope I could help.
My advice would be taking off some of those points from shield charge since it is mostly a pvp skill and maxing bash and AS. I assume you are not doing pvp with core damage skills both at level 1.
Concentration is mostly for hybrid knights. I personally took it and lvl 5 shield charge to do well in pvp. If you are pure tank you probably wont need it. I started off as a pure tank but i found it quite boring to play so I decided to add some "spices" to my build.
If reset is out of the question I'd max bash over AS.
I was considering that with concentration i d take 20% more damage in both - bash and AS - using only 5 skill points ... but a penalty 10% more damage.
Received damage generates threat?
Between bash and aura strike im thinking put bash as you said... cause the most part of the damage form AS come from the 3 auras and not from the skill leveling.
In fact i can left shield charge at lv 1... but i didnt tell you before xD, cause i like colo.
Appreciated your help.
