Somehow I dislike melee heroes and there are no exceptions for warriors.

Equipment Destroyer Sword & Destroyer Shield Kanaxai's Axe & Shield of the Lion Destroyer Hammer
Information 485 hitpoints. Icy sword hilt. Blessed-Insignias, Runes of Major Sword Mastery (headpiece), Minor Strength, Clarity, Vitae (1x) and Sup Absorption. 480 hitpoints. Brawler's-Insignias, Runes of Major Axe Mastery (headpiece), Major Strength, Clarity, Vitae (1x) and Sup Absorption. 485 hitpoints. Knight's-Insignias (4x) and Stonefist-Insignia (1x), Runes of Major Hammer Mastery (headpiece), Minor Strength, Clarity, Vitae (1x) and Sup Absorption.
Notes He deals good damage, has a high survivability and can not be set on fire. Fair damage output, but somehow nothing special. Sort of a standard axe warrior. Devastating on a single target due to shutting it down while also dealing high damage.

I like these huntsmen. Their high armor vs elemental damage is well received.

Notes Good aoe damage, good defence vs combat classes and high armor vs elemental damage, an excellent pve frontliner. Broad Head Arrow is marvelous! Mass conditions due to Epidemic. Very useful and solid hero-template. He prefers to cast Splinter Weapon on allies. To solve this problem it's best to have more than one char carrying Splinter.

Monk-icon.png Monks[edit]

Since I am monk myself, most of the time I am using a hench- instead of a heromonk, because
I think a hench healer does a far better job than a warrior/ranger/ele/necro henchman would do.

Notes She can swap Shield of Regeneration with Restore Condition or with Shield of Deflection. Never leave an outpost without Splinter Weapon. The smiting is particularly useful vs. undeads. Very good at healing, but you still need some prots from other partymembers if going hunting in HM.

Notes Good aoe damage when used by two heroes at the same time, one alone won't be as effective. Meteor Shower can be micro-managed for a better effect. Zhed's not dead, baby! Infact he's a godsend when fighting Destroyers or Charrs! Maelstrom can be micro-managed for a better effect. Good single target damage plus major support by spreading all conditions your party is able to cause to all enemies. I Epidemic!

Notes If the upcoming task leaves corpses, chose him. Don't ask questions, just chose him. The minions not only take out so much damage, they also dish out a lot (when blowing up). If your party lacks spirits consider swaping Spirit Light for Mend Body and Soul. Spiteful Spirit does the most armor-ignoring aoe damage in gw; best skill for pve. Optional: Barbs, Mark of Pain, Rip Enchantment or Well of Silence. If your party lacks spirits consider swaping Spirit Light for Mend Body and Soul. Recovery will trigger twice together with Foul Feast. Therefor and due to the runes all transfered conditions will only last a few seconds. Having a MinionMaster will make sure she has enough energy.

Notes Norgu the meatball, at least he's got savvy. His interrupts take out a lot of damage. He has excellent e-management and his high armor makes him hard to kill. The healing support is also very welcome. Disable all skills except Signet of Rejuvenation and set her to "Avoid Combat". Cast the skills 1 to 6 on the "600hp-tank" and flag her outside of enemy aggro but still inside your radar radius. Do not remove the flag after the foes are dead, because she will run away outside the enchantment maintain radius. Instead flag her closer to you, then you can remove the flag.

Notes Avatar of Dwayna and Victorious Sweep provide good healing plus automatic hex remove. Very good damage and survivability! Set him to "Avoid Combat" and make sure to set his flag to a place, where he will not get aggro. He obviously only makes sense, if your whole team consists of physical damage dealers. M.O.X. is meant to dominate NM (since I don't have 2-3 Searing Flames heroes to rush through NM). If you want to use it in HM, be sure to only use a minor Scythe Mastery rune and be aware, that the dps will not be as high, since Avatar of Lyssa will not trigger as often.

Notes Fairly good damage output and extremely valuable for your defense, when you play him together with 2 Searing Flames Elementalists. She mainly fullfills a defensiv role by interrupting enemies and healing your whole party. Good choice, if you don't know whom to pick^^

Notes Make sure to support her with a weapon spell like Splinter Weapon or Great Dwarf Weapon. 68% chance to land a crit is quite sexy, ain't it? He's really doing good (damage-wise), but imho he is just too fragile to be a good choice for HM trips.
