Flip the above folks.
Get Str, not Vitality. So your self heals have more impact. By 50 I'm reading we want 20 Str, 10Vital, or 30 Str... debate open on which.
This is not a gladiator/paladin. Marauder/Warrior revels in taking damage.
Get used to being at 50-75% health - this class isn't meant to be topped off, just kept up.
At 28 the list of tools for self healing is small... But even Berserk and Mercy Stroke can be healers if applied at the right moments (such as right after Bloodbath).
Go 2 levels into Conjurer and get Cure - until you have better self healing, this is not a bad cross class to put in.
Wait till Titan HM. As WAR, you don't get 20% Damage reduction like PLD (Shield Oak) you need as much Hp as possible. 20 STR doesn't cut because self heal is pitiful, the amount of HP you get back from full blown Crit Berserk Inner Beast will be gone within seconds. Even as DPS Titan curb-stomp you 2k-3k every half a minute (increasing more toward the end and will do lots more if you don't finish it in time), and there is no way to avoid that. Tank doesn't have that luxury, toward the later half he will start dealing bigger unavoidable damage to tank every 20-30 seconds.
Prior to Titan you get Hydra, Triumvirate can do 4k-6k and even more if you didn't kill the Wyvern fast enough. And it can do Triumvirate VERY often.
Forget about red circle you get to run away from, higher level content do have a lot of unavoidable essential damage you need to take. Edited, Sep 22nd 2013 8:52pm by Khornette
