Well, what I would choose for pure Tanking and no damage would be 55 Def and 45 Passion. You would be constantly using Outrage, Restoration and Return to life. Also Decent when sometimes your in big big trouble.
As for gear, I would go Murky Spear or Lugias combined with a 1h Javana Axe or Tooth. As for Shields, Scorpion Shield and Dread Shield and a classic Dagger Defense Shield. For armor, a good set of Chitin with HP on with, a few weapon defense full plate gear (their better then the upgradable chitin which provides less weapon defense). Also get a Fire Talia armor for Tanking the towers. As for accessories, String of Skulls (big budget Skeleton Belt), Dual Agate Rings (Big Budget Dual Ring of Courage), Warrior Pendant (Big Budget Iron Necklace) and Dual Bronze Earring (Big Budget Dual Warrior Earrings).
That's what I would choose.
