Black orc is one of the best pve tanks I have ever played. Although the dorf tank is the best at pvp due to incredibly powerful knockbacks and knockdowns (orcies only have one or two depending on spec and not that powerful). The chosen auras are incredibly underpowered at the moment actually but its still beta so that will change im sure. I will say though the greenskin beginning quests are freaking hilarious and very very cool looking in some cases.
As far as looks nothing beats a decked out chosen, even in lvl 11 pvp gear they look meaner than a menopausal nun.

So... Chosen can auraweave? That definitely seems like what I'm reading, there. Unfortunate about the lack of relative oomph, but... crap, that could be awesome and a half.

Yes, Chosen auras can be twisted.

Black Orc has been my favorite class so far. I wanted to like the Chosen, but so far, they just don't do it for me. I'll give them another try, but they just felt really underpowered and weak.

Plus Greenskins are just simply hilarious.

The Chosen was a great Tank from what I played during the Preview Weekend with quite a few options open to it. Add in Tactics and the Debuff attacks you get WITH aura's and it starts to get powerful. At level 17 (top level I was before servers came down) I was sitting at 406 Str with my Aura up and simply wading through anyone who wasn't a Tank in PvP. When changed over to my Tanking gear (Less Str, more Toughness/resists) I could get upwards of a 50% magic absorb and 60% Physical and last forever with people Focus Firing on me.
