I made a fighter for a low level adventure. Human, heavy armor, two handed axe reskinned as a bardiche. Slow as a turtle but once i was in the front line against a tide of giant spiders and a drider, not only did she hold the line but slaughtered the giant spiders that tried to get past her.
Turns out that swipe attacks are really good with axes and power attack is not too bad either for a single powerful attack against a creature above your level. The fact that i had toughness and almost maxed con gave her really good staying power and when the first drider started biting and bludgeon her, the poisoned crits and normal attacks didn't took her down. Two flanking monks with different stances jumping around just threshed anything i could hold in line and any poor thing that slipped by and rushed to fight them alone.
Really made her feel a tide of steel, and with intimidation trained, she was a fearsome tide of steel.
