[Template] Black Orc
If you have a template for the Black Orc please post it here.
Since this is going to be a hardcore 1H/Shield build, your three top stats will be:
Toughness = reduces incoming DPS(Not a stat, however armor will be what you are looking for on gear)
Wounds = adds to Hit Points
Weapon Skill = Adds to parry% and armor penetration%
The 25 points will be placed as follows: (There will be a few extra points from RvR rewards, however we will not use them here)
15 in "Da Toughest"
Buy the following skills in the Toughest tree for one point each:
Less Stabin Me
Ya missed me
Not in da face
Can't hit me
Can't touch this
Skills in the tree you do not buy: "Stop Hittin Da runts".
The last 4 points will be put in "Da Boss". Any additional points should also be placed in "DA Boss", there is no reason to buy the bottom or second to the bottom skill in the tree.
80 RvR points to be placed in:
Fortitude level 1 = 1 point
Fortitude level 2 = 3 points
Fortitude level 3 = 6 points
Fortitude level 4 = 10 points
Reinforcement level 1 = 5 points
Reinforcement level 2 = 10 points
Reinforcement level 3 = 15 points
Focused Power level 1 = 5 points
Focused Power level 2 = 10 points
Focused Power level 3 = 15 points
The purpose of this build is to "be all you can be" in the tanking department. A Marauder can out DPS a Black Orc in the 2H department, and the Black Orc can easily out survive a Marauder in the tanking department, as such we will concentrate on the Black Orc's advantage in this build.
Here are the planned active morale skills:
Level 1 = Champion's Challenge (both you and target are rooted - no more running away from you)
Level 2 = Raze
Level 3 = Distracting Bellow
Level 4 = Can't Touch This
Slotted Tactics can be changed "on the fly", as long as you are not in combat. Since there are 5 quick slots available, I would set each set to a different use. One for PvP fight, one for PvP heal, one for PvE Group, and one for PvE solo. Here is my set for a "PvP fight":
I'm Da Biggest
Less Stabbin' Me
HUGE DPS Mitigation
Being the main tank you are going to get whacked on and whacked on hard. With this build you are able to knock back targets a medium distance almost at will. This build also increases your block and parry% past the first action in your combos, as well as reducing the cool down of you Juggernaut ability and increasing your hit points by 1600.
A little less DPS
You will not be able to put out as much DPS as some other builds, however you will be able to take a lot more DPS. As with any class, a healer friend will greatly increase this builds usefulness.
