I totally forgot about this point. I agree. With higher initiative you can act fast when things go wrong, and with higher max fatigue you can use more shieldwall. So Brawny should be better perk than Battle Flow for tanking purpose.

And this is why I am a bit leery about using Swordmasters as my tanks, but I might deal with this problem in two ways:
Give them Lamellar Harness and not Heraldic Mail; increase their Initiative, rather than Melee Skill for the last few levels, since 100 plus Melee Skill (which they often end up with) may be an overkill on a tank anyways.

In fact, I might deploy 2 Hedge Knight tanks and 2 Swordmaster tanks and just compare?
