General Info

 

Recommended Races : Imperial, Nord, Orc, Redguard.

 

Build Idea :

Our role will be Tank in Group PvE with 1HS and Sustained DD in Solo PvE with 2H.

 

General Tanking in Group PvE :

Explanation :

Our tank will be providing the necessary services to our party by buffing, debuffing, tanking and shielding while being self sustained.

 

Single Target Bar

1) Pierce Armor - Taunt + Resistance Debuff. Keep it up on bosses all the times.

2) Heroic Slash - Damage Debuff + Ultimate Generation. Keep it up on bosses all the times.

3) Igneous Shield - Spam this shield every 6 seconds in fight.

4) Resolving Vigor - Spam this heal every time you lose your healh in fight. Be self sustained.

5) Absorb Spell - For in-slot bonus and occasional spell absorbs.

R) Aggresive Warhorn - Use this whenever its off cooldown while killing bosses. However if you have someone with this same skill then co-ordinate with them instead.

 

Multi Target Bar

1) Choking Talons - Lock trash mobs in place, reduce their damage by 15%. Spam this every 4-5 seconds after pulling trash mobs near you.

2) Inner Rage - Ranged taunt (optional) when a hard hitting mob / boss is at range and hitting your teammates instead of you.

3) Elude - 20% evade chance + ult regain via our armor procs. Use it before every fight. Keep this up everytime.

4) Volatile Armor - Gives 10% damage reduction + 12% healing recieved + resistances. Keep this up everytime. The AOE damage also helps while killing trash mobs.

5) Igneous Weapons - Gives 20% weapon damage and spell damage boost. Use it before every fight. Keep this up everytime.

 

General Damage Dealing in Solo PvE

Explanation :

Now we will be using 2H for sustained damage dealing. Remember we cannot use few dps morphs since we used them for tanking.

 

Multi Target Bar

1) Noxious Breath - AOE Damage + DOT + Slow Debuff + Armor Debuf. Our opening skill. Consider using Axe for additional DOT damage.

2) Brawler - AOE Damage + DOT + Shield.

3) Reverse Slice - AOE Damage + Execution. Use this whenever your target goes below 40% hp.

4) Volatile Armor - AOE Damage + DOT + 10% damage reduction + 12% healing recieved + resistances.

5) Rally - Buff + HOT. Use Igneous Weapons till you get this.

R) Magma Shell - Use this when you get surrounded by too many mobs and you are unable to handle that much incoming damage.

 

Single Target Bar

 

1) Venomous Claw - Keep this dot up all the time. Consider using a Mace against single targets to counter balance the loss of armor debuff from noxious breath.

2) Wrecking Blow - High damaging skill. We will be using this most of the times against single targets followed by fully charged heavy attack.

3) Elude - Keep this up everytime. 20% evade chance + ult regain via our armor procs.

4) Volatile Armor - Keep this up everytime. Gives 10% damage reduction + 12% healing recieved + resistances. The AOE damage also helps while killing trash mobs.

5) Igneous Weapons - Keep this up throughout the fight. Gives 20% weapon damage and spell damage boost. Considering not many classes have easy access to major brutality buff and you will be using this while leveling before you have access to Rally from 2H line.

 

Passives

All 3 class passives, All 2H passives, All 1HS passives, All race passives, All heavy armor passives, All Undaunted Passives. Dexterity, Wind Walker, Agility if you are going to use Medium Armor for solo play, Intimidating Presence, Persuasive Will for hastened questing while leveling.

 

Champion Point Tips

 

Not going to put numbers here. Instead prioirities them as you see fit according to your build and playstyle. Dont just put them blindly.

 

The Tower : Warlord

The Lady : Elemental Defender, Hardy, Shield Expert, Unchained

The Apprentice : Blessed

The Lover : Arcanist, Synergizer

The Shadow : Shadow Ward

The Lord : Heavy Armor Focus

The Ritual : Mighty, Perfect Strike, Opportunist

    Also, if anyone still wants “single target execution” then use Onslaught ult from 2H line.

    Small update : I am no longer using Dragon Blood. I have switched that skill with Igneous Shield in Solo PvE.

      Do you mean igneous weapons? Cause, unless I missed it, I didnt see igneous shield listed in either of your solo pve bars
