Comments: This Mythic item is a must have piece of gear for all Tanks due to the fact it is a guaranteed 100% uptime buff which takes no effort to maintain. Simply crouch into sneak to activate and toggle the buff on and then anyone stood inside it will be buffed.
The clear downside to using this is the fact that you lose Magicka Recovery which is something that is vital for Tanks however we can overcome this issue relatively easy by using a 1 piece Monster Helmet such as Magma Incarnate or Baron Thirsk. You can also use Infused Magicka Recovery jewellery pieces and slotting Support skills for the passive Magicka Recovery from the Magicka Aid passive.
You cannot give yourself the buff from this so if you consider using it in 4-person content, you will only lose the recoveries for 3 people which is 210 recovery and we can deal with that loss easily enough.
In a trial situation the Main Tank wouldn’t use it most of the time since they are the furthest person away from the group, but the Off Tank would use it in some situations. This will activate on a full 6 people meaning a loss of 420 Recovery which will be a bit more challenging to deal with but the buff is too good to not use so the adjustment of your setup to accommodate that loss will be needed.
