Ok, so I started playing Marauder to get defender just to see if i can equip it while playing GLA. I honestly fell in love with the class around level 7-8 in ß version. The fact is you get this ability called "Bloodbath" which is this cool healing ability that gives you health based on the damage you do on your next attack.
To the point. I had this nifty Guildleve that was myself v. 3-4 mobs. I kinda thought it was the end of the line, I didn't think id have a chance. My accuracy sucks so I miss and get evaded many times. Well I didn't really notice they gave me a frontal cone attack called "Broad Swing" (a normal stamina attack) and a AoE side sweep attack called "Brandish." As I was getting pounded by these mobs I almost died... I popped Blootbath than proceeded with the Brandish AoE attack and did around 150-160 to each of them. instantly gaining around 120-140 health and nearly killing all of the mobs I had left with one shot.
Marauder is friggin sexy in ß. Kudos to SE for finally making an effective AoE melee class. Ive never seen it done before but this kicks butt. I look forward to the release and I hope it doesn't change much from ß. Hail Marauder!
