Attributes and Skills Edit
<pvxbig> [build name="Magnetic Soldier" prof=warri/eleme tactic=10+1+1 earthm=12 airmag=8][glyph of renewal][magnetic aura][whirlwind][aftershock][armor of earth][shield stance][bonettis defense][healing signet][/build] </pvxbig>
- Gladiator's Armor.
- Runes: Minor tactics; Minor, Major or Superior Absorption and Vigor.
- An Earth or Air wand, preferably with an energy bonus while health > 50%.
- A tactics shield (with damage reduction while enchanted, if available).
- Also a perfect enchanting weapon, like the Totem Axe or Rajazan's Fervor help make Magnetic Aura and Armor of Earth last longer. This makes the Glyph of Renewal/Magnetic Aura combo much easier to use.
When engaging melee creatures, begin by using Glyph of Renewal then Magnetic Aura. This skill is your lifeline - every 15 seconds you will need to use both of these skills, so you must ensure that you have the required 10 energy every cycle. Also, take care in waiting for the Glyph to appear in your Skill stack; if you use Magnetic Aura first you'll have to wait out the 60-second cooldown, which could spell your doom.
Attack a creature to build Adrenaline. Your only adrenal skill is Bonetti's Defense, and when you use it in combination with Magnetic Aura you will avoid 93.75% of melee attacks, and gain 5 energy for each hit endured.
You ought to be able to use your Healing Signet safely at any time, but it's safest to use it while you're in a stance (especially if you have aggroed 12 or more monsters).
Once you have been able to use Bonetti's Defense, your energy should be maxed and you can use Whirlwind and Aftershock. Rinse and repeat. Assuming that you can maintain Magnetic Aura, farming with this build should be very straight-forward.
When tanking monsters that interrupt, ensure you have Shield Stance or Bonetti's Defense up when you are casting, to help prevent interruption. If possible, use the Whirlwind/Aftershock combo to knockdown the attackers so that you can cast Glyph of Renewal and Magnetic Aura in peace.
Another skill that you could use are instead of Shield Stance is Sliver Armor to maximize damage output. Also in place of Healing Signet you can put a shout like "To the Limit!" or "For Great Justice!" to recharge Bonetti's Defense faster in order to spam Whirlwind / Aftershock combo.
