  • You can use Saxhleel Champion rather than Martial Knowledge if you need the additional safety of a Heavy Armor set.
  • This trial requires very little actual Tanking from an Off Tank which is why this would be a more useful setup as a buff support rather than a full Tank.

  • For beginner groups using Saxhleel Champion is great because you can use either Colossus as a Necro or Barrier as any other class and boost group survival by a huge amount but at the same time still provide the Warhorn Major Force buff to the group at the same time.
  • I’ve listed Worm as the second set because it’s easy to manage but you can use other sets if you are comfortable using them.
