A strong core warrior build for those without access to the expansions. This build holds its own decently well in Open World. Thanks to its use of Defense, this build is extremely resilient.
- Use a Rifle if you need to range
- Offhand Shield can be used for more defense at the cost of damage.
- Healing Skills
- "突破极限！" - a big heal that also maxes out your adrenaline.
- Utility Skills
- 耐力纹章 - more dodges.
- 公牛冲锋 - if you don't need a stun break.
- 牦牛纹章 - if you're taking a lot of damage.
- "重整旗鼓！" - if conditions are a problem.
- 痛苦忍耐 - panic button.
- Elite Skills
- 战斗旗帜 - longer duration of boons than 盛怒纹章 but also a longer cooldown.
- 怒神附体 - grants stability, mobility, and crowd control.
- Ascended gear and stat infusions are not required; you can use exotic gear with the same stats.
Don't be afraid to mix and match to fit your playstyle. You generally want gear that focuses on Power and Precision. Avoid Condition damage and Expertise gear.
You want to keep your 超级武勇法印, but other sigils can be replaced for small playstyle changes.
Runes are the easiest way to change key elements of your build. Runes should focus on providing you more damage or defense. Avoid runes which give condition damage or expertise.

- Greatsword is your primary weapon. Just 百刃斩 and burst as often as possible, filling with autoattack chains as needed.
- Never interrupt your autoattack chain.
- Remember that 百刃斩 roots you in place, don't use it if you need to move or dodge soon.
- 旋风斩 deals good damage if you need to move or you can whirl into a wall.
- 回旋剑 is worth using over autoattacking (as long as the projectile isn't eaten by a wall).
- 突击斩 is worth using as a gap closer.
- Activate "为了正义！" and 盛怒纹章 off cooldown for boons.
- If running the dual axe variant, you should constantly swap between Axe/Axe and Greatsword to use their damaging skills. While on Axe/Axe, you should prioritize 双重打击 > 旋风斧斩 > 回旋斧斩.
- Mace/Shield is your defensive weapon set. Use it to block attacks and stun enemies.
- 旋风斩 can be used to evade attacks and reposition.
- You can slot 牦牛纹章, 耐力纹章, or 痛苦忍耐 for more damage mitigation.

- You get quite a lot of sustained healing from 强力正义 and 怒气恢复 .
- You can cleanse conditions by weapon swapping or using 伤势愈合. For more condition-heavy fights you should run "重整旗鼓！" or 净化之怒 .
