Summary

*for even more weakness get Body Blow instead of Forceful Greatsword

 

I dont PVE very often but I had lots of fun with this build by tanking melee groups. This is ASURAN race only. Sorry humans, this is for the little guys only.

 

Benefits:
-tons of AOE weakness stacks to keep melee groups in check.
-any Might gain is transferred to 600 radius allies. So if you Hundred Blades 3 foes, you can share up to 25 stacks
-Banners will regen heal, boost defense, boost healing power
-Hammer does lots of CC to keep enemies off their feet

 

The reason why this is an ASURAN build. Is the Radiation Field. The field will AOE stack weakness everytime you do a Blast Finisher, hence all the Finishers that you see

 

FINISHERS: Banner of Defense, Banner of Tactics, Banner Skill #5, Earthshaker, Rampage AOE stomp
-get all these Blast Finishers off and you will inflict long AOE condis on a group

 

*I prefer weakness because the condition lasts a long time and the damage is reduced substantially for you and your party
