there role is to stab you with pointy things a hundred times really fast. Almost as if they had a one hundred blades skill or something. --- Top 10 Favorite games of all time (in order): NIER, Zelda WW, Secret of Mana, Zelda OoT, Rainbow Moon, Valkyria Chronicles, DAOC, MAG, Tachyon, Myst
Tank build: Point Capture ( if specced for healing shouts with soldier runes, using the Fear Me shout). Guardians do this better, IMO, since Fear Me has a long CD even with CD reduction. With a hammer you can play support by locking down enemies and crippling them.
Glass Cannon build: Lockdown and kill. You have 2 very good CC utilities in Bolas and Bull charge. Unload with hundred blades and the spinning axe skill, alternatively you can run condition using a 1 hand sword and shield and watch enemies quickly from bleeds.
