You’ll find all sorts of information here regarding the Unchained Career (for Sienna) in Vermintide 2. The Unchained is Sienna’s “Melee Tank” spec. Taking damage increases Overcharge, and your ult vents it! Overall, the career has a cool mechanic but goes against “not getting hit”, but I guess it’s for insurance!
Unchained Passive Ability
- Blood Magic: 50% damage taken transferred to Overcharge
- Slave to Aqshy: No Overcharge slowdown
- Unstable Strength: Increases melee power on high Overcharge
- Blazing Sinews: Reduced block cost on high Overcharge, consumes Overcharge
Unchained Career Skill: Living Bomb: Sienna explodes, dealing damage to surrounding enemies and clearing her Overcharge

Unchained Early Game / Starter Build Template
This is meant to be a “General purpose” build for the Unchained which focuses on the early to midgame. I will be adding more specialized builds which require more heavy item support soon.

Unchained Early Game / Starter Build – Talent Choice Discussion
Remember the above recommendations are primarily suited to be good for “most people”, specifically for “early to midgame” when gear drops can’t easily be tailor fit to your needs.
MORE DISCUSSION TO COME AS THE DAYS PASS!
Well that’s about it (FOR NOW) regarding Sienna’s Unchained Career path in Vermintide 2. With full blown gear, Unchained can get pretty tanky. However, getting hit is pretty bad in the first place so I have mixed feelings on this. Pretty good at handling mobs, though!
