Title tells all.
In which of these guys should I invest my tokens?

    @Killrogg It's a race between Brienne and Troy. Both are fantastic. I give a slight edge to Brienne overall for two reasons. 1) I love the way Strong and Power Strike complement each other 2) She's way cuter

    I won't promote any Melee survivor without Strong.

    IMO Troy's traits are 10/10 for any melee survivor, with Brienne being a 9/10. Power strike is quite effective in certain situations, but iron skin works always.

    @jbuoy In Brienne's defense, you can't get armor with Gold Power Strike.... but can get armor with Gold Iron Skin. Just sayin'.... ;)

    True. But having gold iron skin on the armor and iron skin on the survivor will make him take a good amount of hits.

    It would also all depend on what you would want your bruiser for.

    Normally they don't do a lot of damage and don't actually need to since they can stun. Sometimes a bit extra damage is good, for example, if you need a final hit to finish off a fatty. But most of the time you want to stun and be able to resist a lot of damage.

    @Jaden Valid points. I think we all agree that having Brienne and Troy as your primary and secondary Bruisers puts you in a VERY enviable position. I have a Troy on my team and have been looking long and hard for a Brienne to compliment him. You're in a good space with those two....

    yall forgot... any melee without retaliate is insta scrap & both yalls points r valid so keep those 2 & retire the other 2

    Rebecca and Troy are definitely awesome bruisers!
    Brienne is good too!! You can take Grace's tokens :)

    Rebecca would be good if you'd use her as a shield. I would like her better if she had defensive stance (for shield purposes, overwatch + defensive stance, dodge, retaliate and iron skin plus luck is a good combo... or bullet dodge instead of luck if you also raid or go against Freemen).

    Well, none of your bruisers is bad, though retaliate is a must and therefore Grace is tokens...
