Lifegiver is a Paladin-like Templar Tank PVE Build. The Build is focusing on strong resistances and passively healing you and your group. A flexible Templar Tank Build with different setups for harder and easier group content.
Lifegiver can support the healer of your group if necessary and save your team in an emergency.

Neither is necessary.
Taunt and drop your Restoring focus, Ritual of Retribution/Extended Ritual and Unstable Wall of Elements.
Just block and let your Sets do their job. Use your Inner Rage, Silver Leash to control enemies farther away. Use Razor Caltrops to debuff enemies and trigger Powerful Assault. Activate Defensive Stance if you have to and make sure your Unstable Wall of Elements is always up to apply the crusher debuff.
Restore Stamina with Repentance whenever you can. If your healer is struggling, assist with Breath of Life but try not to spam it too much.
Use your Ultimates when ready, appropriately.
