Usage

Damage

This build heavily benefits from using CC to proc Attacker's Insight. As such, CC is part of our damage rotation. It's very important to be familiar with your CC skills and to watch your stacks; if you have dropped a stack, CC skills take the highest priority.

Opener

A basic opener is as follows:

  1. Fill gaps with auto-attacks.
  2. Cast Bull's Charge, Signet of Rage, and "For Great Justice!" off cooldown.
  3. Open on Hammer
  4. "For Great Justice!"
  5. Signet of Rage
  6. "To the Limit!"
  7. Bull's Charge
  8. Earthshaker
  9. Fierce Blow
  10. Staggering Blow
  11. Backbreaker
  12. Hammer Shock
  13. Earthshaker
  14. "For Great Justice!"
  15. Weapon Swap
  16. Dual Strike
  17. Whirling Axe
  18. Breaching Strike
  19. Disrupting Stab
  20. Dual Strike
  21. Breaching Strike
  22. Weapon Swap

From here, a basic priority can be followed.

  4. Staggering Blow
  5. Hammer Shock
Dagger/Axe
  1. Whirling Axe

Defense

  • Full Counter - by far your most powerful defensive tool
  • This build has many defensive skills and traits listed above to make use of. Use Warrior's high health pool and dodges to your advantage.
  • Defiant Stance is an absurdly powerful defensive tool when paired with endurance regeneration to stall for cooldowns.
  • Many enemies are going to be CC'd nearly permanently by this build, which is amazing for both offense and defense.

CC

The skills listed below are just the ones built into the default build. Warrior has a myriad of incredible CC options if you happen to need more.

  • Full Counter
  • Earthshaker
  • Backbreaker
  • Staggering Blow
  • Hammer Shock
  • Disrupting Stab
  • Bull's Charge

Still a good build for people wanting a true melee class. It doesnt have the greatest dps but it makes up for it with Full Counter being an incredibly strong defensive and offensive ability. Also with the later expansions EoD and SotO, many enemies have increased access to boons like protection, quickness, and stability, which spellbeaker excels at removing.

A solid build for any who enjoys melee combat, truly fit the theme of a forminable fighter. Self sustained is so high while you are fighting, not much focus is needed because as long as you hit something you can heal up to full even below 50%. One more small benefit that if using Phalanx Strength this build practically immortal in zerg/massive meta while still provide extremely high might up time. The only downside is this build has limited CC unless you willing to give up some personal dps for mace/hammer/physical utilities.

As of 2021, this build is still an excellent solo build. Able to solo champions with relative ease thanks to the sustained healing from sun and moon and might makes right. "Shake it off" alone functions as a very good condi removal option and stunbreak. And full counter is a third dodge. Its only real weakness is its relatively short range, which is somewhat mitigated with its gap closing skills, namely GS 3, GS 5, dagger 2, and dagger burst. Overall, 5/5

The best solo build for warrior. Very versatile, relatively easy to play, and can quickly be adapted to fit different playstyle. Has gone from a build I rarely took seriously to one of my favorites very quickly.

A tanky, high AoE damage build for Spellbreaker. Excels at soloing group events and cleaving down trash mobs, and can survive some things it shouldn't be able to with Full Counter. Like all Warrior builds, its weakness is its short effective range.

Screaming gave this build 5 stars • July 2018
A great build that fulfils classic warrior wielding a big sword fantasy, with not only great personal sustain and damage mitigation through Might Makes Right and Full Counter, but also extremely effective at generating its own might further increasing its damage between Forceful Greatsword and Magebane Tether. Alongside this it also has decent condition cleanse with Mending and Brawler's Recovery, as well as good mobility on Greatsword with Whirlwind Attack and Rush which are further enhanced by Warrior's Sprint removing immobile. This build, overall, is absolutely excellent, while being fun to play - between Mace and Shield skills, Hundred Blades, and Physical skills, it's easy to get the feeling that your warrior is this extremely strong unstoppable juggernaut.
