The Slayer (Updated)
Slayers are suicidal dwarves that go out into the world having sworn to die in battle to expunge some dishonor from their name. This slayer is constantly trying to die, but is just too good at killing to have succeeded at his goal yet.
The build uses +damage the more you’re hurt synergies.
This is more of a theme build rather than a min/max; but it did WAY better than I expected (this works really well in party w/ someone using willbreaker and Body Blows)

Combat starts; Pop your instants: Swift flurry, lion’s sprint; then Frenzy, Leap in, and Barbaric smash the guy you want to turn into pink mist first; turn everything else into pink mist. Rinse repeat.
Typically keep wounds at max. When barring death’s door is about to drop pop savage defiance, and second wind if required. You have a backup second wind (and potions) if the fight goes long.
*Use Thunderous Blow spamming to dump your wounds if you are getting smashed too badly.
I started to really test this guy w/ console to check different weapon and party combos.. so far he rocks about everything but the biggest challenges are the spread out ranged stuff. When in party he really shines as long as you either eat intel resistance food or keep everyone else away from him. If you have a second melee toon give them willbreaker and use body blows and you can rip through a lot of stuff with all the fortitude debuffing (weaken is -20, sicken -10, bodyblows -25 to fort).
