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.  With the Werewolf, you do need to run tormentor as that turns your pounce into a taunt ability.  Your human form skills will remain the same however you will not be using primary tank sets so you will be a bit weaker.

Werewolf Tank

Werewolf tank is a situational tank but extremely fun.  You can do some trial content and trials as a WW tank, but I wouldn't recommend using it as a primary tank.  With that said, have fun with it!  It is a blast, and very beefy.

Beginner/Level Tank
