If you’re looking for the best tank build in New World, then here’s how to build the ideal loadout using a sword and shield. The sword is currently the only weapon in New World that can be used with a shield – although the sword is fairly weak compared to other hefty New World weapons, it can be used to build a highly defensive tanky loadout for both PvE and PvP.
Players have been experimenting with different Tank builds during the first week of New World. One of the most popular has been the classic Sword and Shield build. Thanks to NewWorldFans for providing a useful platform for experimenting with builds. You can visit them here to try out your own builds.
These tank builds are used to defend and mitigate damage so other party members can deal damage, so they’re best paired with DPS builds and a life staff healing build. Take note of the abilities that slow enemies, as the tank particularly excels in crowd control, and AoE damage can be used to maximise your efficiency. So here are the best New World tank builds using a sword and shield for both PvE and PvP.
While Final Stand is one of your core skills, you’ll need another two skills to fill out the rest of your New World tank build. The other two skills from the Sword and Shield will be Shield Rush, allowing you to charge five meters in a direct, knocking down enemies. This is good if an NPC goes running off to an ally of yours. The other skill you can grab is Shield Bash, which guarantees a stun on the hostile it collides with. The build is all about control and sustaining damage against your opponents. However, you can take the Whirling Blade skill over the other two skills above. That’s if you want to do some cleave damage when taking on multiple enemies at once rather than having extra control.
Everyone needs a tank. Build like this and you'll always have a space in Expeditions.
