I am looking to make a melee main, I am fond of greatsword, however dual wielding is not a deal breaker if its significantly better.
Prefer a bit of tankiness, but a little heavier on damage than tank, somewhat of an offtank/striker. If aoe capability can be there, great.
Had thought brute (devoted/base barb) or brawler (devoted/helwalker)
as a greatsword user can you pump perception at the cost of might and use the modal for a net gain in damage? Or is the 30% bonus restricted to just weapon swings and not abilities?
If you go Morningstar with brute, is the modal to do fort damage worth the 25% damage loss?
Do the stacking wounds and incoming damage increase not an issue for the helwalker? Or is it something that is manageable as you level?
I do want to avoid total gimmick builds that only work with a certain weapon, however I realize that there will be certain weapons that will be bread and butter for certain builds.
Any advice or feedback is welcomed, thanks!
