Get as tanky as possible and brain afk content, which simply does not work that well.If they "aren't needed", or, at least, aren't really ever useful, why do they exist?As you've been explained in the last 100 threads you've made about this subject in the past 5 years:Those stats exist to allow people who are not good with the evade and mitigation mechanics to be able to play all the existing content of the game by trading some power to get more defense.They're also useful in WvW. As has been explained to you, that isn't actually how it works, because passive defense is pretty much useless due to the misdesign of the combat system. That is your subjective opinion. You have not yet shown that passive stats are useless. Make a build with base toughness and vitality and go play WvW, then make a build with maximum vitality and toughness and go play WvW again, then come back and tell us it made no difference.You simply do not LIKE the amount of difference it makes since in either case, active avoidance and skill use remains important."That is your opinion" posts are pointless because it clearly applies to nearly every post in every thread. If you have an actual argument, state it, otherwise stop trying to derail mine (and others') without one. Also, it's easy to infer we're talking mostly about PvE here, you know, the part of the game that most people play and sees actual development.
