For melee players your general guidance is to rush in to attack any group without mass enchantment removal.

Melee players have fast attack rate and skill activation to distribute damage from Great Dwarf Weapon, Orders and Strength of Honor as quickly as possible. Team target co-ordination is not required for this role, players may basically attack what they wish, as long as they remain in range of the ER bonders. Note that it is useful if melee players attack different foes to make knockdown more widespread.

What is Physway?

Physway collaborates strong protection from Ether Renewal infuse/bonders and physical damage buffs to create a team build that is capable of doing many areas, using both pick-up-groups and experienced players but is primarily designed for the harder dungeons and elite areas. This guide allows players to build their own physway team for specific areas.
