AlbionMall opinion about Offtank / Bruiser
I like a similar playstyle to you I think, sort of Nasus/Udyr/Mundo type gameplay(haven't played in 4 years)
I've been toying with a few different builds that offer a lot of what I think you are looking for.
Helmet: Guardian - Emergency Heal
Chest: Mage - Ice Armor
Shoes: Soldier - Shield Sprint
Weapon: Great Hammer
I find this build gives me a lot of damage, while still having a comfortable amount of CC, mobility and tankiness.
Helmet: Assassin - Howl
Chest: Assassin - Invisibility
Shoes: Stalker Shoer - Motivating Pain
This build offers me a lot of burst damage, a lot of sustain damage and just enough CC/Mobility to call it a day. Invisibility -> Heavy Smash -> Howl -> Whirlwind is pretty sickening.
Helmet: Assassin - Meditate
Chest: Graveguard - Soul Chain
Shoes: Cleric - Blink
This build offers Blink+Stun+Burst as well as Soul Chain and Meditate for more CC/Cooldowns while being super tanky.
I haven't really decided what I'm doing with myself yet. It's a hard life.
Map size to player - albion guild ratio
lately Albion has felt empty. Even with the high player count and influx of new players the world feels empty. My thought in the matter is the current size of the map in regards to the population and competitive guild number

Albion was the intention to have a PvP game
The game is brilliant until now. I liked the gathering, the crafting, the building, the leveling, hell even the farming.

Weapon Types vs Armor suggestion
I will say that my suggestion forks also with magic types: i.e fire magic will do more damage to cloth and less damage to plate, while ice magic will do less damage to leather and more to plate.
