High Isle - Mist Form Tank - sawmanUK
This build allows you to be an un-killable ball of gas that can constantly maintain mist form. The joy of this build is that it can be used to troll in PVP or to AFK grind in PVE.
If you want to know more about the way the cost reduction works for mist form and the maths that went into it, feel free to watch the above video.
Breton - Dark Elf - High Elf- (realistically anything works, so don't panic if you don't have an optimal race.)
Dark Elf - Flame Resistant comes in Handy
Extra Damage and Healing Potential.
Breton - Higher Max Magicka and Cost Reduction
-Theif or Ritulist
It make sense to stack into Crit so you can get bigger heals. Alternatively you can also choose the ritualist Mundus which gives you a flat 9% healing boost.
Stage 3 or 4 Vamp for the Undeath Passive
Bewitched Sugar Skulls - Increase Max Health by 4620, Stamina & Magicka 4250 and Health Recovery by 462
You don't need recovery on this build, you need max stats. Remember, mist form doesn't allow you to have any recovery.

For the most part a lot of the champion points slotted are for defensive reasons.
Fighting finesse is slotted as it gives big juicy crit heals and seems to be the best in slot.
The Red tree doesn't seem to give much in the way of passive defence. Being a floating gas ball means you don't get stunned, don't block and don't need slippery.
