Guide for Dreadnought :
A guide with stats i calculated and a summary of how to use him and why
Dreadnought is a tank, he specializes in reducing damage at the cost of his damaging capabilities
His bronze deals huge amount of damage in a burst of 6 shells and some aftermath damage
His silver gives him a huge shield and then taunts for max 15 seconds.
When any of these is activated he makes the cooldown speed 20% slower for both.
His gold makes him gain 15% damage reduction for every time he uses ability and gives medium extra armor. If he has 3 or more he damages himself.
His platinum gives an extra 15% damage reduction and gives small extra armor when not channeling the bronze.
His Ruby gives him small extra armor and gives him more damage to cover
If the damage reduction stacks with the shield it would mean : a max of 600k + 60% or 90%
Would be 960k or 1140k, if it does his shield would never be able to be destroyed and would take 15 seconds, would mean you have 15 seconds of safeness every time you have the shield up
Purpose : he would especially serve good as a tank in pve, his shield makes him soak up the damage and the damage reducement makes him near invincible, he would only really be good for tanking, his damaging capabilities aren’t the greatest but his bronze wrecks and his armor and reducement makes him the tank, you don’t need much healing as his damage reducement is enough, a gammond or heimlock would be enough, he would especially be really nice to redirect fire from your damage dealer to him at will
If i’d recommend some team for pve it would be something like : Dreadnought, heimlock and some good damage dealer to your choice, if you go for full support min or oracle instead of your damage dealer would help him tank more because he gets his shield faster, if that wouldn’t work i’d recommend Dread with Halo and Siren, he would redirect fire from them and Halo could easily heal the taken damage up and siren destroys the enemies, halo would also help dread his bronze to deal more damage
