Bruiser question

Is a bruiser without retaliate any good? I got one today with luck, dodge, strong and power strike and i dont know if i should use her.

    no good - even with retaliate.
    Remember to use your charge abilities

    These are my two. They guard and protect my post. Woe to the one who enters. Retaliation is a great trait. They seldom get taken out in my outpost. That two turn stun is killer. They are great for defense and use. I use all fighters for missions. Hope it helps.

    These two are my pride and joy. They work wonders.

    Bruisers serve a useful purpose in your Outpost but are close to useless in challenges and completely useless in the higher levels where their stun doesn't work. Let's hope NG has a plan like adding grids to scouts which took them from being close to useless to very valuable, for the bruisers.

    I agree with @NCDawgFan. Hopefully next update will enhance the bruisers.
    It would be nice to be able to stun fatties every once in awhile!

    @avelardez, my Poser is your Devon's separated at birth twin. And he too, loves to defend his outpost turf! ;)

    Bruisers are slowly becoming useless in outposts with the prevalence of stun-resist gear. With that said, 'Retaliate' is beneficial as it can literally cancel out opponent's charge-ability for their 2nd attack (i.e. Shooters, warriors, scout swiftstrikes), if retaliate stuns, then opponent doesn't get their second attack anymore.

    I don't personally use Bruisers anymore in my own outpost defense, even on rural farm set up. Not saying they don't still have their uses, but if banking on stunning, just know that 100% stun-resist gear is readily available for opponents.
