General tactics (All fights):
Ideally you are wanting the Second Wind
talent, along with Avatar
, as it has the highest overall damage boost. (There are some fights where Bloodbath
is better - But it will be stated further into this post on the "Fight-Specific Tactics" part).
You should also be making sure to, of course, have Mass Spell Reflection
(As the other two Tier 5 talents can't affect you), and at least two Potion of Brawler's Might
Pre-potting with Potion of Brawler's Might
is the best idea (Hence owning two per fight) and then using the next one as soon as it's ready, alongside all of your DPS cooldowns.
Most other benefits are negligible until higher up fights or your gear is lower than average (I'm working with full 463 or better gear - As that's what I had until reaching Rank 7).
Fight-Specific tactics (Dungeon Master Vishas):
This fight is quite high-threat for us warriors, as we don't have as much self healing as almost every other class, however it is also very easy at the same time, provided you know what to interrupt, when to kite, or when to stun/fear.
The main threat in this fight that you absolutely must do what you can to counter is his Heated Pokers ability, which causes him to deal a LOT of extra fire damage with every melee hit he lands, however it's un-interruptable, so is the biggest threat.
He can, however, be stunned by Shockwave
when he has the effect on him, and Die by the Sword
can be used to counter it so you don't have to go running away.
Just note, however, that the Shockwave
stun is not as long as the Heated Pokers buff, so use the stun duration as an opportunity to apply Hamstring
to him, and run away until Heated Pokers expires.
The other ability he uses, which is not as high threat if your health is above 350k and you have the Second Wind
, is Naughty Secrets - This can be interrupted and reflected at him so focus on doing that, but as I said, unless the fight goes on for a while and your stacks get insanely high (As whenever he casts it, it increases shadow damage taken), it shouldn't be too much of a threat.
