This PvE-oriented Warrior/any build uses Warrior's Endurance to quickly deal large amounts of single-target damage and knock down adjacent foes frequently. It fits into teams which provide conditions and physical support such as Strength of Honor and Splinter Weapon. It will benefit greatly from Withering Aura, Judge's Insight and Cracked Armor. Against foes that have Stun Immunity bringing Earthbind will allow them to be knocked down.

Equipment

Use

Weapon sets:

  • Use your hammer for attacking.
  • Use your staff when you need to cast a non-attack skill but don't have enough energy.
  • Use your spear to build adrenaline when a foe starts kiting.
  • Swap to your shield set if you're about to die or when you're idle.

Skills:

  • Maintain Warrior's Endurance.
  • Use "I Am Unstoppable!" when you want to move but are crippled, when you expect to be knocked down soon or when you get hit by armor dependant damage. Don't use it for no particular reason before combat or at start of the combat.
  • Use Dash or Death's Charge to close the gap to foes quickly. Dash can also be used to cancel Frenzy when you're taking too much damage.
  • Use Asuran Scan to bypass effects which would make you miss an attack
  • Use your IAS stance to attack faster
  • Use Crude Swing and Whirlwind Attack when multiple foes are standing adjacent to you. Use whirlwind attack immediately before Yeti Smash.
  • Knock down foes with yeti smash. Immediately start using Renewing Smash; you can use it four times each knockdown. Use Protector's Strike afterwards and you almost have enough adrenaline for the next yeti smash.
    • Else use protector's strike immediately after an attack of yours hit the foe. This will cancel the current attack's animation end, resulting in way faster attacking.
  • Use Power Attack or Malicious Strike for additional single target damage

Counters

  • Blind and hexes such as Blurred Vision and blocking effects can disable Renewing Smash.
  • Interrupt on renewing smash.
  • General anti-physical hexes.
  • Foes immune to knockdown. Counter this with Earthbind.
