This Build is great, it shows that a class doesn't need DPS to be useful. Even for a tank the Mesmer does a great job, giving us a role to unload our utility as well as take the tank slot. Two roles in one! Now if only we could heal too! My only suggestion is to try and explain gear a little better. There seems to be debates all over the game on which gear is better.

This is decent but there was an oversight. A furious sharpening stone will actually increase damage further than master maintenance oil, when trying to avoid redundant boon duration. As a bonus, you get 100 toughness on top of the damage it comes with, which is good for a tank. Besides that I'm not inclined to criticize what's here.

Chrono tanks are fine but probably rarely the best for parties. They also spread quickness less efficiently than a utility chrono since they have significantly less freedom of movement which meens inefficient boon copy. If you have a revenant in your party, you're probably better off just putting zerk on the chrono and having a thief or necro tank since they have better sustain than the Chrono and lose very little DPS doing so. If your party needs more sustain or you're just looking for ease of clear, then you're better off taking a tempest or dragon hunter tank.

The build is great but if I can't afford a Commander armor, why use just 2 Knight trinkets and the rest Assassin? Why not full Knight armor and the rest (weapons and trinkets) Beserker?

Really good tank build with great support and decent DPS. Works like a charm in Raid!

It's a good idea to let the chronomancer tank because the normal chronomancer build focuses on support through quickness and alacrity by sacrificing some of it's personal damge. As the personal DPS of such a chronomancer isn't that high anyway the groups overall damge will be better if the chronomancer tanks instead of another class which would bring more dps. This tank build only sacrfices as much personal damge as is necessary while still improving the support the chronomancer brings to the raid group.
