Use

Weapon sets:

  • Use your scythe for attacking.
  • Use your staff when you need to cast a non-attack skill but don't have the energy for it.
  • Switch to your shield set when you can't reach a foe to still gain adrenaline, when 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 dependent damage. Don't use it for no particular reason before combat or at start of the combat.
  • Use Asuran Scan to bypass effects which would make you miss an attack.
  • Use Frenzy, Burst of Aggression, or Drunken Master to attack faster.
  • Use Power Attack for additional damage.
  • Use Protector's Strike and Mystic Sweep immediately after an attack of yours hit the foe. This will cancel the current attack's animation end, resulting in faster attacking.

Counters

  • General anti-physical hexes and conditions.
  • Snares.
