Tank Poisons

As a Tank you won’t really use poisons. In a worst case scenario where you have no Templar and no Minor Breach or Minor Fracture you might consider using Breaching Poisons or Fracturing Poisons depending on if you are in a Stamina or Magicka group. These are inconsistent however and it can be difficult to maintain the uptime since they only have a chance to proc so the reliability of using these poisons for these debuffs isn’t very high.
