Captain is one of the best tanks in LOTRO, as they have the pretty good survival and offer some of the best group utility when compared to other tanks. As for aggro control, they don’t have the best AoE aggro control, but that’s usually not an issue for raids, but they do have great Single-target control.

These goals are kept with Essence & Gear planning in mind, as to which Essences are to be prioritized over others. These goals can also be used when picking Virtues.
Tactical Mitigation > Physical Mitigation > Vitality
After Mits are capped or near capped, then Vitality essences can be used. Generally, only Tactical Mitigation essences will be needed, as Physical Mitigation gets capped with just cap-level Gear and Virtues
Here are the Virtues which go along with the Stat Goals:
- Loyalty (Great for Vitality)
- Fidelity (Great for Vitality + Tactical Mit)
Rotations - NA
