    Default Warrior Build

    What are your opinions on this build?

    It is a Champion/Paragon/Paladin Build, with damage being focused on using a 2H.

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1c...Ghzz.V0z.VMVho

    This build is for PvP, it balances 2H Damage with Survivability.

    Survivability:
    9% Reduced damage from Spells
    Reduced duration of Mesmerize, Stun, Fear, Sleep, and Confuse abilities by 30%
    15% Endurance
    10% Armor
    Pacifying Strike - 5% Reduced Melee Damage
    50% Reduced Healing
    Roots, Fears, Slows, Stuns, Interrupts
    Ability to escape Roots, etc.
    Touch of Life - Heal for 100% of your Health
    Casting time increased 30% via Disruptive Strike
    Ability to reflect 1 to 3 melee attacks, even 3 point finishers

    What the 6 Points in Paragon gives:

    Ignore 5% Armor with Abilities that generate Attack Points
    Ability to reflect 1 to 3 melee attacks, even 3 point finishers
    Strike Like Iron - 30% Damage for 12 seconds
    Way of the River - 5% Critical Strike Chance
    Rising Waterfall - Powerful follow up attack that generates Attack Point
    Only wasted thing is Dual Strike

    Still needs to be decided:
    Soldier's Bearing vs Slayer's Bearing

    If anyone knows which is better let me know.


    Sample rotation:

    Mark of Extermination on the target
    Bull Rush
    Is there one target? Then use Leg Sweep to slow it
    Is there more than one target? Use Battlefield Intimidation to root the target and fear the rest
    Is my target casting? Use Bash
    Is Bash on Cooldown? Use Thunderous Kick or Light's Hammer
    Next use Debilitating Strike to increase damage to the target
    Follow that with Punishing Strike
    Do I have 3 Attack Points and fighting a melee? Use Titan Strike, otherwise use Blade Fury if Titan Strike is on CD
    Do I have 3 Attack Points and fighting a caster? Use Disruptive Strike
    Did one of my attacks get dodged or parried? Use Inescapable Blow
    Did one of my attacks just crit? Use Frenzied Strike
    Do I have 3 Attack Points again? If so use Cornered Beast
    Is target under 30% Health? Use Deathblow
    Can I not use any of these moves? Rising Waterfall, if not use Power Strike

    Interesting... I am intrigued.

    I for one wouldn't mind trying out this spec in the next beta...

    How would you suggest I break down this build for a lvl 27 with 36 pts. to distribute?

    Would it even be viable before engame?

    What would the rotation look like?

    Sorry for all the questions, haven't had my coffee yet!

    I find it odd that all of you people are making up your soul trees when im pretty sure that Trion is going to fix and move the soul tree around but if the game was going Live tomorrow and I had to run a build this is what I would do to get your max dmg from the Champion and max out of your Pally build.
    http://rifts.ru/tallents/index.html#...1417,1_1418,5_

    I took out your 4% dmg from one hander the way feel is its wasted points what is really 4% not much wont make or break a battle where as Titan Strike will

    Take out Paragon for a more AoE dmg Reaver you get 15% more endurance along with the 15% from the Pally plus some heals from Soul Sickness

    The Pally soul tree I just made you a little bit better at surviving and heals

    Hope it helps you

    I think the build was bugged, I had Titan Strike and not the 4% one hander damage.

    The reason I go with 44 points in Champion is to get Cornered Beast. Also, this build focuses on PvP single target damage, hence, I chose to avoid AoE talents, Mighty blow already hits 3 targets and I think that is enough. Let me know though if u feel I should move some points around.

    Also, I took 15% endurance from Paladin, does that stack with the Reaver Endurance as well? I still feel that Strike Like Iron ( +30% Damage at 3 Points) and Way of the River (5% Critical Strike Chance) are better than anything Reaver provides.


    Here is the build w/o bugs:

    Well this is definitely a PvP build, so if that is what you are interested in I can show you. This build may be viable before endgame, but you would be missing a few key abilities obviously.

    If you are interested in a PvE 2H Build let me know.

    Here is what I would do at your level:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14031925/rif...oul3_talants=0

    Titan's Strike is HUGE damage plus a stun, use it to interrupt them at the beginning (make sure u have 3 points) or if you're fighting a healer use it when you want to burst them off at the end.

    If anyone played WoW, this build would play like an Arm's Warrior pre-mortal strike nerf. The 50% reduced healing is amazing!

    First, make sure Mark of Extermination is on the target, 20% additional melee damage from critical strikes is massive.

    For a rotation look through the abilities.

    Mark of Extermination on the target
    Bull Rush
    Is there one target? Then use Leg Sweep to slow it
    Is my target casting? Use Bash
    Is Bash on Cooldown? Use Thunderous Kick
    Next use Debilitating Strike to increase damage to the target
    Follow that with Punishing Strike
    At 3 Points use Titan Strike, otherwise use Blade Fury if Titan Strike is on CD
    Is there more than one target? Use Battlefield Intimidation to root the target and fear the rest
    Did one of my attacks get dodged or parried? Use Inescapable Blow
    Did one of my attacks just crit? Use Frenzied Strike
    Is target under 30% Health? Use Deathblow
    Can I not use any of these moves? Power Strike

    This is for your level. If I missed something let me know.

    Later on you will get Disruptive Strike, which is to be used against Casters and Healers.
    Also, you will have more damaging moves, cd's, another stun, the ability to heal yourself for 100% of your health (20 min. CD), etc.

    You know, a lot of us have looked at http://www.riftrolebuilder.com/builder/?calling to see what we think we should be at... well; I do not evaulate my builds until the games goes live in March.. I do however, go to my trainer (warrior & Cleric) and reroll free to change my points to what I think might work... I expierence the totality of all I could be... I play... I Summarize .. I play..I do not know what Trion will give us at the start, but I Recognize; Evaluate, Conclude/Control what I need to spec at to be the best at what I can do for me & my group...
