DefaultBest end-game Hammer/Chaos Tank spec?

Here's my crack at it. I'm not sure what a good amount of threat abilities are. I'm having zero trouble atm, but I also use Provoke to hold aggro when i'm kiting bosses around and such. My best solution to that would be to take provoke again, or Stone's throw.

Any suggestions/thoughts from people with more experience would be appreciated.

Thank you for sharing your build, but i'd like to suggest you don't use "best" to describe a spec.

Now, a question: Isn't aftershock and the escalation passive a bit redundant? It's the same buff, and you can keep it 100% up with escalation, so why have aftershock as your ST consumer?

Also, since i haven't done all those dungeons yet, i may lack experience, but i'm gonna ask anyway: Are ALL those 3 support abilities really necessary? Since i feel that not using chaos resources is inefficient.

I didn't know that minor wards do not stack. I will have to think of a different consumer then. Any suggestions?

The title of my thread wasn't implying this is the best build, it was a question. As in, what is the best build and is this one in the right direction.

As for support abilities, I rotate the defensive cooldowns so I can have one up every fight, or on boss fights I just pop them on CD or if they are going to use a big damage ability. I haven't used Unstoppable force yet, since I don't have it - I just assumed it would be nice to have for nasty abilities and such.

Think based on all the data we've seen so far, Sword/Chao is the best end game tank spec with passive from hammer and other places. Block seem to be the worst defensive stat there is.
