Generally class mechanics carry right over from faction to faction equivalents, but the tanks are the only things that are a little skewed. The Ironbreaker is entirely unmatched in pure tanking ability, damage mitigation and crowd control.
Ironbreaker = It's own league of tanking.
Swordmaster = Black Orc (abilities combo off of stances, sword master is a little squishier than borcs, but have a higher threshold for DPS via greatweapons)
Swordmaster = Chosen (chosen special abilities are their AOE debuff auras, but both SM and chosen rely heavily on magical damage based attacks, both are more offense oriented)
