Any of the tank classes would be most appropriate. These are Black Orc, Swordmaster, Chosen, Knight of the Blazing Sun, Ironbreaker, and Black Guard.

I've only played the first two myself to Tier 2 but I highly recommend them. They mirror each other in that they use the same mechanic: Stances. Only some of your abilities are useable based on which stance you are in, essentially meaning that you fight with katas or forms like Eastern martial arts.

Heavy armor and DPS do not go together in WAR. Medium armor is as good as it gets for true DPS types. Many are in light armor.

This is not to say that tanks can't do damage, they will never put out the numbers of the lighter armored types even if you choose a DPS tree and build, but they do last longer.

And then there is the problem that if you choose a tank class, people will expect you to... well, tank.
