The Slayer class of Bardin is probably the one that most people would want to know about. This is the one which requires you to fight. The Slayer class only has one thing going for it and that is the insane amount of DPS that it can output. Of course, that power comes at a price and you need to be aware of your weaknesses as well. That is where our
This Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Bardin Slayer Guide will tell you all about how to make use of the Slayer class when playing as Bardin. A lot of tips and tricks will be given to you along with what weapons to use and what Bardin Slayer’s abilities do.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Bardin Slayer
The first thing that you need to be aware of is the passive ability known as ‘Trophy Hunter’. This ability gives you a stacking damage buff whenever you hit an enemy. This means that the more you hit an enemy, the more damage you will deal.
This is only helped by the other effect of the passive which increases your attack speed. In the simplest of words, get in there and start wreaking havoc as you have the attack speed and the damage buff will stack allowing you to deal more damage than anyone expects.
The Career Skill is called Leap, and it also helps your passive. Essentially, you leap forward towards a target and stun it. Once you have done that, you have a burst of attack speed. Now, this will help you stack Trophy Hunter faster and the damage will quickly multiply to become much more lethal than before.
Bardin Slayer Weapons
Dual Axes are the best weapon for Bardin Slayer. You do not have a ranged weapon with the Bardin Slayer so you can get a second melee weapon. Do not worry though, with the amount of DPS that Bardin Slayer can output in melee form, you will not be missing the ranged weapon one bit.
For your second weapon, it is best if you go for the Warpick as it gives you the chance to parry the enemy attacks while simultaneously giving you a higher critical chance. If you get a critical strike while you have your passive stacked, the potential for damage is limitless.
For your trinkets, always try and prioritize the ones which give you Power and Attack Speed. If you feel like you will not be able to sufficiently protect yourself in certain fights, then getting a health trinket may also work out. Just remember that your main job is to deal as much damage as you possibly can, and your trinkets should assist you with that for the most part.
Bardin Slayer Tips and Tricks
Remember to link your abilities together for a combo. Use your Career Skill and then stack your passive for the maximum possible damage.
Remember that you do not have a lot of defense. Your health is quite low so it is best if you try and be vigilant of enemies. You also do not have any way to block enemy attacks so you really are vulnerable when you jump into the fight.
Being surrounded by enemies is probably not the best option, so try and make sure that you do not take on more than a few at one time. This will allow you to take them out one by one and you will be able to deal high single target damage due to your aggressive kit.
If you find out that you are unable to defend yourself, it is best to go for defensive trinkets. You will still deal quite a lot of damage but you will also be able to protect yourself now. This is a more conservative approach and may work for some players.
