what is the best ice tank build and loadout?
I change my loadout depending on the content. I spec into multiple Flight tree Powers for more loadout options.
Powers I Spec into that I may use in my Tank loadout:
Inescapable Storm: Long range multi target Pull; Inflicts Frostbite
Reflect: Absorbs 3 hits of Damage up to 10,000 + Dominance; Grants Chill Effects
Shatter Restraints: Group Breakout + CC Immunity; Shield = Dominance+Restoration
Winter Ward: Group Breakout + CC Immunity; Shield = Dominance+Restoration
Bitter Winds: Nearby Crowd Control; Inflicts Frostbite; Shield = Dominance+Restoration
Ice Elemental: 50% Supercharge; 3x Health & Defense; Heal; Shield = Dominance+Restoration
Freeze Wave: Nearby Crowd Control; Roots or Encases Frostbitten opponents
Low Pressure: Medium Range multi target Pull
High Pressure: Ranged Crowd Control
Downdraft Attack: Ranged Crowd Control; Grounds opponents
Air Burst: Nearby Crowd Control; CC Immunity
Boss Fights - 5 Shields, 2 Group Breakouts, 1 Pull, 1 Melee Crowd Control, 1 Supercharge:
Inescapable Storm, Reflect, Shatter Restraints, Winter Ward, Bitter Winds, Ice Elemental
Normal Melee Ranged Opponents - 4 Shields, 2 Group Breakouts, 1 Pull, 2 Melee CCs:
Inescapable Storm, Reflect, Shatter Restraints, Winter Ward, Bitter Winds, Freeze Wave
Normal Ranged Opponents - 3 Shields, 2 Group Breakouts, 1 Pull, 2 Ranged Crowd Control Moves
Inescapable Storm, Reflect, Shatter Restraints, Winter Ward, High Pressure, Downdraft Attack
When Extra Pull is needed - 3 Shields, 2 Group Breakouts, 2 Pulls, 1 Ranged Grounding Move:
Inescapable Storm, Reflect, Shatter Restraints, Winter Ward, Low Pressure, Downdraft Attack
When Extra CC Immunity is needed - 4 Shields, 2 Group CC Immunity, 1 Self Immunity, 1 Pull, 2 Melee CCs:
Inescapable Storm, Reflect, Shatter Restraints, Winter Ward, Bitter Winds, Air Burst

Ice Elemental(on bosses only)
Impaling Ice( personally dont like)
My character name is MenaceOfHell. Add me as a friend
Are u dps or tank?
im trying to get a tank loadout
Work with your shields and control-breaker.
I have a loadout with three shields (2 breaker-moves), one pull, WoP and two cc-moves.
I give you my Loadout when I get home from work...
im on the USPC server
I'm on EUPS3 - I'll PM you on the forums, m8!
so whats the loadout
You need to go to the powers forum and look at the ice guide. It covers all your questions.
whats your character name Corrupted Ertai id you are on the USPC server
First, read a guide on ice tanking, it will help I promise.
Here's a good loadout though:
thnx for the loadout im gonna try it out ASAP
Indeed, search the guide forum. For tank, you're gonna want IS, Reflect and at least one of the CC/shields (SR and WW). From there, I've seen many different loadouts. Its a play-style preference thing. I use BW, Wintry Tempest, and from the flight tree Low Pressure.
For dps, you are gonna want WT, IB, Frost Blast, and Blizzard is an awesome super. Good luck.
Can you tell me what the letters stand for?
My loadout is pretty basic, but it works with my own minor tweaks.
Freeze wave< i think that's what it's called (knockdown)
Bitter winds< 360 degree knockdown
With my 6th power I change this sometimes I use Shatter Restraints for the cc immunity, or Blizzard for some extra damage. All preference.
