    Thanks for posting this guide! I have been looking at this site a lot recently, ad have found a ton of useful information. I only have one question about this loadout. I noticed you don’t use rage blast. Why? It is the signature taunt of the Rage tank, so isn’t it useful? The only reason I can think of is that this build looks like it is more of an AoE tank loadout. And I incorrect, or did I just miss something?

      Hi Gregory,

      Thanks for your support and your comment. You are right about saying this is more like an AOE build and it uses Ragebringer as main aggro power. However, Rage Blast is an excellent aggro power, you can use it instead of Ragebringer or Redirected Rage.

    You say they will release 3 parts to WotL DLC. Rage (Red) came out in part 1. I know that Hope (blue) will be next. What is the third color? Greed (orange), violet (love), or indigo (compassion) powers? Or you dont know at this time?

      well thats what i heard from online videos. they havent revealed what powers or how will they introduce colors to the game. We just have to wait patiently for new announcements

      I dont think it will be orange, since there is only one ring there.. And Violet and Indigo seems to be mostly heroes, same with Blue.. But well.. As long as its not Orange then I dont mind what they pick.. It’s really interesting to follow these styles ^^..

      Hi Jeremy

      DLC info and announcements for future DLC Content are given in the interviews, but they are not official.

    Probably asking the wrong persons but do you think they will release a blue lantern power set? Possibly as a healer class? They have green/yellow as control and red as tank so why not a blue healer? I’ve always perfered the blue lanterns over all, even the black lanterns.
