In For Honor, Lawbringers are the judges of Ashfeld. Lawbringers enforce the laws of the land and deal out any punishment for those that break them. They have an advanced and difficulty to master moveset. However, if you can learn how to play them effectively, they can be almost unequaled in Dominion mode, and very difficult to defeat 1v1. This Lawbringer guide will show you the extent of the Lawbringer's moveset and show you the best combos and how to use the Lawbringer's feats.
Lawbringer Weapons and Armor
The Lawbringer wears full plate and therefore can withstand a pounding. However, this heavy armor also slows them down a lot. Their primary weapon is the Poleaxe. The poleaxe is a devastating, but hard-to-use weapon that works best at long-mid range. The slow attack speed of the poleaxe is somewhat compensated for by the Lawbringer's ability to launch strong counter attacks.
Lawbringer Revenge Mode
The Lawbringer's Revenge Mode boosts damage and health. Additionally, all attacks become uninterruptable. You can also knock enemies down with your throws and parries, and attacks are auto-parried.

Lawbringer Tips For 1v1 Duels
The Lawbringer has high power at mid-long range. When fighting 1v1 keep back and use the Judge, Jury, and Executioner combo whenever you have a chance. Be ready to counter-attack when the enemy moves in close.
Lawbringer Tips for 2v2 and 4v4 Brawls
The Lawbringer works great as a support hero if you can team up with your ally for a 2v1 fight. If you're forced into 1v1 combat use the same tactics, you would utilize in a 1v1 Duel, but be ready to disengage if multiple heroes gang up on you. The Lawbringer's slow attack speed makes 1v2 fights tough, and if the opposing heroes are speedsters then you may be out of luck.
Lawbringer Tips for Dominion
The Lawbringer makes a great support hero in For Honor's Dominion Mode. Stick with an ally hero and keep enemy soldiers off their backs. Additionally, a great role for a Lawbringer is to watch a more offensively oriented hero's back while the play the role of primary attacker.
