5 items: When you taunt a nearby enemy, you tether to them for 15 seconds. While tethered, you apply Major Maim to your enemy, reducing their damage done by 10%, and you gain Major Vitality, increasing your healing received by 16%. The tether is broken if the enemy moves 8 meters away from you. This effect can occur once every 15 seconds.
Set Rating: 3 out of 5.
When to use: Kynes Aegis, any situation where the Main Tank takes a lot of damage. If you are learning to Tank in progression trials.
Where to obtain: Icereach.
Set Weight: Heavy Armor.
Which pieces to obtain: Any.
Comments: This is a set that could be used by Main Tanks in any situation where the incoming damage is very high and you want to reduce the incoming damage and boost your self healing.
It would be mostly suited to newer Tanks who are learning new environments and it would work well in Kynes Aegis especially Last Boss Hardmode. The uptime on this can be 100% as it has a 15 second uptime and its possible to refresh every 15 seconds so you can keep reapplying both Major Maim to an enemy and Major Vitality to yourself every time you refresh your taunt.
Due to the high uptime it is a great replacement for Alkosh and very much suited towards Tanks who are in progression level groups or doing content with random groups.
It is effectively a group set since the Major Maim will reduce the damage from some group based damage from bosses.
