Another noob question from me, I've never gotten my beta character over lvl 10  so I don't know how the world works beyond that for them warrior classes.

Best for Warrior Class for PvP is...

Swordmaster
Ironbreaker
Black Orc
Chosen

You need to explain what your idea of 'BEST' is.

Ironbreakers FTW!

I collect and play the Dwarven army on table top, so I went straight to the Ironbreakers right off the bat during beta. I tried the others, but I've always enjoyed playing the role of a 'meatshield' in other mmo, and the Dwarf tanks do it with style.

F2P MMORPGs made me go back to P2P MMORPGs.

 Swordmaster!

In my experience, SMs seem to pwn the most.

definitely ironbreaker, they can take a beating and when they have their grudge at 100, they dish out a fair amount of damage as well.

ironbreaker = best tank, but lowest dmg

swordmaster = crap

black orc = best tank for pvp due to knockback's and snares and has good dps

chosen = looks badass and pwns :O

But this is just what ive herd, plz dont flame me

yes, swordmasters are the best pawning tank ;)

 

don't listen to all these tards who haven't played them. I got to level 17 during OB and using a 2hander, i topped the dmg charts almost every single time in scenarios.

 

You also get AOE knockback ability at level 16, which you can spam ever 10 seconds.

I'd say black orc closely followed by swordmaster/ironbreaker (depending on your play style) and Chosen last. Swordmasters are very underrated by many people at this point. I played on as a main in beta and it was very fun and effective - and could be just as hard to take down when played a certain way.

Personally, I think the stuntie can take more dmg but the chosen is capable of keeping agro better... although who will discuss with a drunk dorf?!  hehehe

Depends on what you want.  But not Swordmaster at the moment.  Its not bad, but it is sub par to the others.  It has some advantages like doing spirit damage, but its somewhat lacking.

 

At full grudge an IB is probably the most formidable if you are good at switching oath friends.  But without the grudge the damage is not as good as black orc.  Black Orc is quite tough with good damage and decent group buffs.  Chosen is lower damage but has very good AoE debuff and buff potential.

 

Probably go IB or black orc.

Since hardly anyone is agreeing 100%, I'd take that as a good sign that the classes are pretty well balanced as far as any of us can tell.

I had an amazing time with Swordmaster in OB, liked it as much as my Chosen, which is sadly now forcing me to have two mains on two different servers.

Every profession in Warhammer Online was designed to be the best in RvR (PvP). Hope that helps.

Black Orc path of Da' toughest.  Don't know if it's the "best" but it's definitely my favorite.

For me Black Orc and Chosen played pretty much the same the only difference being Orc was more offensive.
