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.
The Necromancer tank can be a very popular and very powerful in groups. Necromancers can have a very high ultimate regen, self synergies for DPS usage, strong self heals, and powerful debuffs.
A Necromancer tank, when used well, can be extremely strong and survivable with emergency skills for your group if needed. Enjoy!
for attributes I go for a balanced Health/Magicka build. The Necromancer can be very magic heavy on the skills so building this out still gives you above average health pools w/ food buff and a decent magicka pool. Adding spirit mender to your skill rotation will also increase your magicka regen. You can use a bit more stamina in this build, however it is much quicker to use heavy attacks with your front bar sword & Shield than swapping to your back bar to try to regain magicka.

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.
