I have read here and on twitch from some high lvl players (mostly legendary) but I’m sure this could apply to champion (where I’m currently playing), that tankier characters should be protecting ranged oriented characters so that they can best take out specials and such during hordes and what not. I’m perfectly fine with playing this role and just want to know exactly what this means.
My thoughts are that it means having awareness of both hordes and regular skaven/other regular enemies and dealing with them, and trying to keep them away from Sienna/Waystalker/Bounty Hunter and Huntsman. Basically sorta watching their back. I have also been told that a shield is pretty decent for this by a Sienna player, because if as Bardin I take the Drake fire gun (flamethrower) and try to kill all the horde than they can’t shotgun (beam staff) specials and elites indefinitely because they rely on crits from slave rats to keep their overheat down.
I am perfectly cool with playing this role as tank, but I wouldn’t mind some more specifics as to how to keep my damage dealers free to do their job and would not mind feedback on how best to fill this role for the good of the team.
