Sunder Armor: While this looks like an attack skill, it’s best used as a secondary skill, debuffing bosses with the Persistent Wounds passive, which inflicts a tear state to reduce enemy damage absorption.

For swords, have the following abilities:

Shield Bash: While it will only hit a few enemies, it can re-apply the taunt state and temporarily stun some of the more troublesome enemies in front of you.

Shield Rush: Knocking down enemies helps, but the main purpose of using this skill is to weaken and stun all enemies hit.

Defiant Stance: This is your primary way of taunting enemies in the room. Use the Restoration passive, which significantly reduces damage taken and heals you for 15% of your maximum health at the end of the 8 second skill duration.
