ic2 axe is not a tank weapon, you could consider spob axe one I suppose though.

Updated my list above to keep a readable list available.

Added from suggestions:
some blood-splattered sleeves of sewn flesh
a suit of mithril platemail armor (Bryn - a suit of starsilver platemail)
a grand suit of the ancients
ornamental legplates inlaid with gold

Removed after further consideration:
a nickel plated battle ring

Did not add after consideration:
a hooded cloak emblazoned with a faerie dragon crest
a supple pair of blue dragonscale boots
a serrated war-axe encrusted with frost
a small king's tear stud

I will likely do a list of Tier 2 items once I feel Top Tier (1) list is fairly stable. Many of those items suggested that weren't added will likely fall into this category.

Not sure too sure about izan's sword. And if it is indeed is "top tank gear" you'd have to include:

a gnarled staff of Pahluruk's root
a scepter of elven might

i consider a weapon that does damage on riposte a tank weapon, it doesn't blind or have hp or heal the wielder, but the added damage from a reflexive skill is good in my book

What does doing damage have to to with tanking? The weapon does not improve your ability to tank, therefore it is not a tank weapon.
