Tanky warrior build
Posted 18 April 2013 - 07:19 PM
So recently i see almost all warriors run greatswords and axe/mace...and never see any using shield and such. So i decided to go full knight(?) or full soldier(?) or a mix of both. But probably full knight to get that little bid of damage output. For weapon choice ill be using an 1-hander and a shield as primary weapon set.
What is a good 1hander that works great with synergy. Im thinking of swords since they look really badass with a shield. Also whats a good build and a good secondary weapon set?
Thanks for your time guys.

(Note I have not listed the fractal trinkets as you didn't mention fractal running)

I took shield traits just in case that's what you where going for, also the 25 point minor trait in defense will give more effective power than either an extra 5 in strength or discipline so that's why I took that.
If you don't need shield mastery then your damage can really take a jump back up by doing 20/25/10/0/15, taking reflect would make the most out of the shield if it's what you're going to run all the time. and if you don't want fast hands another 5 in str arms or def would be ok.
Even though you want to run knights min/maxing with ruby orbs in the armor and exquisite in the trinkets would be most beneficial. If you feel that you arn't as tanky as you want to be then beryl orbs/exquisite instead would work at the loss of only 8 crit chance. but only gaining 1740 hp.
Running emerald orbs/exquisite wouldn't do much in helping your survivability since your main gear stats are toughness and toughness gets less effective the more you have.

As for straight up tanking.. got to go with mace/shield. You get improved self defense with weakness spam(be sure to trait sundering mace for weakness on crit), rupts and blocks. I had to stack my toughness incredibly high(~2300) to surpass some of the guardians I was rolling with, but eventually stuff did just lock on to me.
