A bulwark in defence, and with the healing to keep team-mates in the fight, the Last Man Standing build will keep you on your feet through the bad times and the good.
- Fantastic survivability from high toughness, great active blocking, high passive regen (even more powerful when combined with another player's regeneration boon). Condition removal from "Shake It Off!", and Soldier runes means that you won't be suffering for long.
- Strong group buffs and a get out of jail free card. Even if your friends go down, use your elite to bring them back into the fight asap.
- Fast revival. Use your great strength to get your slacking team-mates back off the floor!
- Group heals. This build works great with +healing gear, and your low-cooldown shouts keep your friends in the action.
I've mostly tested this with mace, but it works with sword or axe as well, although you'll probably want to put the 10 points from Strength into Discipline to make the most of the powerful sword and axe burst skills.
