- Use Lightning Reflexes to build adren faster.
- Spam Crude Swing in mobs to build mass adren.
- Use Earth Shaker for an AoE knockdown, followed by Pulverizing Smash for Deep Wound.
- Use "On Your Knees!" directly after Pulverizing Smash to recharge Lightning Reflexes.
- Rinse and repeat.
- Sentry's Armor for additional armor while in a stance.
- Any max damage customized hammer (with either +15% damage while in a stance or +15% damage always, energy -5). Energy will likely never be a problem with this build unless you encounter very heavy energy denial.
Suggested Weapon Mods:
- Furious Hammer of Fortitude.
- It's often beneficial to bring along an extra hammer with an elemental damage mod such as an icy hammer grip to help damage Warriors.
Similar Green/Unique Hammers:
- Add in "For Great Justice!" and remove a skill of choice to help build adrenaline when you need it most.
- Apply Poison to spread poison with your AoE attacks.
- Whirlwind Attack can be equipped for more AoE damage.
- Various other PvE skills of choice can be brought, such as the dwarf shouts, "I Am Unstoppable!", or Dwarven Stability.
- Consider Crushing Blow if you're having a hard time timing Pulverizing Smash.
- Antidote Signet if you find yourself in area where you are blinded constantly.
- Backbreaker Just for a variant... and a possible way to get off the full combo =)
- On hit hexes such as Empathy or Spiteful Spirit.
- Blindness and Weakness
- Heavy life degeneration.
- Adrenaline drain or prevention.
- Defensive stances, though the AoE damage from Earth Shaker and Yeti Smash will still connect with adjacent targets.
- Damage reducing hexes such as Faintheartedness or Spirit of Failure
- Anti-blocking skills such as Rigor Mortis, Griffon's Sweep, Warrior's Cunning, or Unseen Fury.
- Foes that can't be knocked Down.
- Soothing Images
- Armor and Health are important as tanking requires these and you will not have any shield to help out. Having a teammate bond you helps considerably.
- A cooperative team allowing you to tank will make your damage even more effective as you will have the enemies around only you.
- AoE scatter skills used by your teammates will ruin the DPS of this build. Be sure to coordinate with them to avoid this.
- Beware larger enemies that are immune to knockdowns.
