Set Rating: 4 out of 5 (No Necro Support). 1 out of 5 (Necro Support in Group).

Where to obtain: Cloudrest Trial (None Perfected), Veteran Cloudrest Trial (Perfected) Standard Cloudrest for Weapons, +1 for Body Pieces, +2 for Purple Jewellery, +3 for Gold Jewellery
Set Weight: Heavy Armor.
Which pieces to obtain: All pieces for versatility.
Comments: This is a great set for new Tanks and for groups who do not have any Necro supports in the group. This set procs automatically just from blocking attack which makes it a very good option as its both a good Tank set and still provide a DPS boost for your group.
This is more consistent than using a Necromancer with Empowering Grasp when used correctly as it will apply to everyone in range and doesn’t need to be aimed, however it does take up a 5 pieces set so using a Necromancer Support is preferred where possible.
Testing of this set showed Damage Dealers gaining over an 8% increased DPS from Galenwe where an 80%+ uptime was achieved.
