This build was in the category Good before being archived.

This pressure build is made from the Nightfall skill Steady Stance, and Desperation Blow and Drunken Blow from the previous 2 campaigns. The character may look like a gimmick at first sight, however the "Fear Me!" spam causes mass e-denial, especially with multiple copies of this character.

Equipment Edit

  • Vampiric and Ebon axes of fortitude (15^50 inscription).
  • +5 energy axe (possibly focus too) to counter e-denial.

Usage Edit

  • Use Steady Stance followed by either Drunken Blow or Desperation Blow.
  • Spike down targets by following with Critical Chop.
  • Keep yourself clear of condition with Signet of Malice.
  • Spam "Fear Me!" to deny energy.

Variants Edit

  • Signet of Malice can be switched for Dash or Rush if you have reliable backup.
  • The build is as or more powerful when using Hammers, by speccing 12+1+1 into Hammer Mastery and switching Critical Chop for Hammer Bash.

Counters Edit

  • Block skills are not as big a problem as they may seem. Even if the attack skills are blocked, you will gain the energy and adrenaline, so to keep up your "Fear Me!" spam.
  • Signet of Humility, by disabling Steady Stance, consistently disrupts this build
  • Anti-warrior Hexes
