Rage Tank Tips

  • In the Tank role, Dominance is increased by 100%. Using super powers increases your total Health by two-thirds of your Dominance for each nearby enemy.
  • Pull multiple enemies with “Ragebringer [1]” and use it to keep your aggro increasing or “Without Mercy [5]” to pull nearby enemies to your center.
  • “Ragebringer [1]”, “Without Mercy [5]”, and “Ire [4]” effects can heal yourself instantly.
  • “Severe Punishment [3]” will cause Rage Crash after 8 seconds. Activate Eviscerating Chain and its Rage Combo immediately after the Rage mode ends in order to prevent the Rage Crash Damage.
  • While “Violence [2]” and “Remorseless Recovery [2A]” effects are active, damage caused by Rage Crash is significantly reduced.
    • “Violence [2]” is recommended for tanks that wants to block constantly, nearby enemies will be hit by Violence aura and increase aggro (recommended for safer tanking)
    • “Remorseless Recovery [2A]” is recommended for tanks that wants to deal damage with their weapon or “Eviscerating Chain [6]” and get heal by damage done
  • Rage Tanks must choose between “Violence [2]” or “Remorseless Recovery [2A]”  depending if they want to block constantly or get heal by weapon and combo attacks.
  • Activate “Violence [2]” or “Remorseless Recovery [2A]” clipped with “Severe Punishment [3]” in order to significantly reduced Rage Crash damage

  1. Will the chest healing mod increase the amount healed back?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      No Devlin, healed back amout is only based on the damage received.

  2. I feel weird about not using a supercharged ability. I understand why each skill is chosen but wouldn’t one of the super skills be better than violence / remorseless recovery?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello RaeSnow, you can use a supercharge ability instead of violence / remorseless recovery but you have to make sure of not having a single rage crash. Vindictive is a great choice and it also makes you inmune to RageCrash
