Equipment

Use

Weapon sets:

  • Use your axe for attacking.
  • Use your staff when you need to cast a non-attack energy 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 dependant damage. Don't use it for no particular reason before combat or at start of the combat.
  • Use Frenzy or Flail to attack faster.
    • Use Dash or Enraging Charge to close the gap to foes quickly or to cancel your ias stance because of its downside effect.
    • "To the Limit!" can fuel flail immediately and does not cancel your current stance. Use it mid-combat for an additional adrenaline boost.
  • Use Wild Blow to remove stances or Asuran Scan to bypass effects which would make you miss an attack.
  • Use Dismember and Body Blow to apply deep wound on targets in your range.
  • Use Power Attack and Executioner's Strike for additional damage.
  • Use Protector's Strike and Agonizing Chop immediately after an attack of yours hit the foe. This will cancel the current attack's animation end, resulting in a further increased attack speed.
  • Use Whirlwind Attack or Cyclone Axe when multiple foes are standing adjacent to you.
  • Activate "Save Yourselves!" when your team needs the additional defense. Keep it charged and ready instead of using it whenever possible.


Counters

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