it is understandable that you will not have all of these skills & passives opened as you level...these are the goals to be able to base Tank.  Some skills can be swapped out for damage skills if you are soloing or leveling specific lines.  Open your passives as you can.  Get your undaunted line opened as soon as you can to get your inner Rage as it is a primary ranged taunt for tanking.

Warden Tank
"Ice Wall"

The Warden tank is a rather diverse tank due to the fact that you can spec in a multitude of ways to help your group as well as yourself.  Shields and healing support for yourself and your group help give buffs as well as self-sustain, netch to help your resources, and ability to survive make this tank very enjoyable.  The Warden has the ability to self-sustain in areas where other tanks can lack a bit.  Crystalize Shield, whereas it is for projectile only can absorb a multitude of high damage attacks, ability to cleanse slows efficiently with your netch, and lots of healing built in for self survival.

Additional Sets

For Warden I tend to go full health.  If you find you are having regen issues in the beginning, you can take a portion from health and move it towards whichever attribute is giving you trouble, however, train yourself to manage your resources so you can move back to 64 health.

Alternate Sets

Trial Tank

There are many different trial builds when it comes to end game.  At this time, this build is focused on normal trials and not as much Vet Hard Mode.  I have posted what have felt is an optimal build for me and have completed majority of the trials with this build.  There may be situations where you swap out set pieces and you should do that, but this post is an overall tank build that will handle many if not most situations.
