The Equipment Template for this build is:
PkpRhOxDkkqIhmIFyQjmIDLjimIVRhgmIDrxh2O9EA
  • Survivor insignias and 1 Stonefist insignia on boot or hand.
  • Sundering or Vampiric Hammer, Elemental, and Furious Hammers. Fortitude or Defense mod on either.
  • A defensive set with spear + shield. Spear should have +30 health and a furious mod (you'll often want to be in this set to build adren). Keep an assortment of shields in your inventory (all the damage types, cripple reduction, blind reduction)
  • Keep a longbow in your inventory to build adrenaline from afar
  • Superior Vigor, Clarity, and Restoration runes.

Usage

  • Upon entering battle, begin building adrenaline. When you and any other warriors on your team have adrenaline, organize a spike on a suitable target.
  • Try to spike down low health targets.
  • Use Bull's Strike to knock people down and set up spikes.
  • Use Crushing Blow for an extremely powerful attack on targets you've knocked down.
  • Use Flail to build adrenaline faster and to speed up your spikes.
  • Use Enraging Charge to gain adrenaline and catch up to targets.
  • After knocking someone down with Earth Shaker, it is often useful to 1/4 knock them with Hammer Bash. To do this, you use Flail after Earth Shaker, hit once with a Hammer attack, and then pause for half a second before using Hammer Bash. If done correctly, the target will be knocked down again directly after standing up and not even be able to cast a 1/4 second activation skill.
  • Use your Elemental weapon to bypass enemy warriors' resistance to physical damage.
  • Of course, use Resurrection Signet to resurrect dead party members.
