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)
Ahah hahahahahahaha. Someone hasn't played the game yet.
I agree that tanks are more different. That is mainly because the true counterparts were removed in beta.
