This build utilizes Drawven Battle Stance with Dwarven Stability to dish out nearly continuous interrupting ability. The higher your Delver rank the better! And uses Renewing Smash to pummel knocked down foes.
Attributes and Skills
<pvxbig> [build prof=Warrior/No Profession Strength=12+1 Hammer Mastery=12+1+1][Dwarven Stability][Dwarven Battle Stance][Crude Swing][Whirlwind Attack][Optional][Brawling Headbutt][Renewing Smash][Auspicious Blow][/build] </pvxbig>
Optional can be one of the following:
Brawling Headbutt can be replaced with:
- 4 Sentinels, 1 Stonefist OR 3 Sentinels, 1 lieutenant, 1 Stonefist
- Minor Hammer (on helm), Minor Strength, Superior Vigor, Vitaes
- Max Furious/Fortitude Hammer
- Max Sundering/Fortitude Hammer
Select your target, attack, use 1 & 2 as you're running to the target. Try and get a group together and use Crude Swing to interrupt everyone you hit. Then if you've got enough adrenaline, use Whirlwind, if not Mokele Smash, then Whirlwind. Use Auspicious Blow whenever your energy is low. When fighting singular enemies use Brawling Headbutt and Renewing Smash (should be able to squeeze in about 3 of these in most cases). Refresh your stances as needed. Crude Swing and Whirlwind for quick interrupts.
Obviously Anti Melee. Anything that prevents you from gaining adrenaline is annoying.
Haven't seen any others around utilizing this set up. But feel free to get creative. :)
This requires your party to keep you alive so be sure you've got some good support or you won't last very long. I've been trying various hammer builds for a while, and this has been my favorite for PvE so far!
