'Escaping & Surviving'

Due to ~2.8k+ toughtness, midfights are available for a medium amount of time, and plus, there are few ways to escape and cover back:

  • As said before, cc breaking is a lifesaver. Combos like: Get stunned --> Head Butt --> Get stunned by Hed Butt --> Cc break with Berserk, give us 6k+ healing in basically 2 secs + 1000 thoughtness (reaching nearly 4k) and the possibility to put some pressure on your foe with gs skills.
  • Abuse of
    Shield Stance Shield Stance
    3Activation.png
    25Recharge.png
    Shield Stance
    Block attacks.
    Duration.pngDuration: 3 seconds
    . This fantastic skills protect you for 3 seconds from power based attack, making you gain might stack every time you block, and it reflects projectiles. Perfect against Ranger, Demon Hunters and Pistol thieves. Be careful, do not use it at starts due to ccs, for example 0 will activate the fear at first damage that could be the first reflected ranged skill.
  • Remember that
    Defy Pain
    60Recharge.png
    Defy Pain (trait).pngDefy Pain
    Activate Endure Pain when you are struck while below the health threshold.
    Radius.pngHealth Threshold: 50%
    is a nice immunity to power based damage when we reach 25% hp. And it breaks stuns!
  • GS #3 (
    Whirlwind Attack Whirlwind Attack

    Whirl in a target's direction, slashing foes along your path.

    Book.pngNumber of Targets: 3
    Book.pngEvade: 0.75 seconds

    ) can be used offensively, but also difensively to better escape a bit and to evade some attacks.
  • GS #5 (

    20Recharge.png
    Rush
    Charge and strike your foe.
    Damage.pngDamage: 414
