Rune Fencer is a good tanking job, it's a good physical evasive/strong magic defensive job.

Issue is that the job requires ALOT of effort and attention. And looking at which current buff (especially the ones with the same icon) has wore off sucks, because you have near 10+ buffs on. And some of them wears off quick.

Enemies with powerful physical attacks (primarily WSs) are pretty well shut-out by Utsusemi. Epeolatry is not needed to tank any VD fight. I think the only thing that can really punish a RUN is when shadows are instantly stripped from something instant like the AA Elvaan's Shield Bash and then followed up with a powerful WS. Blink tanking hasn't changed much over the years and is still a game of focus and anticipation.

I made custom icons specifically because I hated having to check what was what between so many defensive buffs. You might be interested in them:

Sub Blue and cast cocoon. Can tank those fudo's just fine. 1600dmg if not geared properly. Even without utsusemi, you can keep blink/SS up all the time.

Rune is nowhere near paper tank.

With embolden getting increases of more than +20% from gear and JP, Protect/Shell V should be pretty high.

Looking at this gearset for RUN, it reminded me of something I saw in altanaview, back last year....in November. This armor set was already introduced in the dats a long time ago, but never implemented. I never knew this was RUN empyrean, and immediately though of how ugly it looked on Galka:



As you can see, the version date is from 11/2/14, and the armor is listed as "head" "body" etc.

Interestingly, they did not release GEO empyrean armor in the dats back then (i checked previous versions and the latest), so I'm wondering if this was already in the game for something else, and SE just got lazy and said "fk it, we'll make that trash RUN empyrean. nobody will ever know". You know, to save them time. There's no way any amount of time went into designing that set.

Yes, I tried it on a Galka to see exactly what I'd be getting.

that looks like a galka version of zurko's set from the Ergon BC fight *shrug*

EDIT > that's so disappointing. Good job SE. /lockstyle something else forever
