The Hellion is a unit that didn't exactly do well in the transition to PvP. Though an adept frontline fighter, her restrictive positions of her skills and some of her Exhaustion debuffs makes her one of the less-used classes.
The Hellion mainly favors being in the forefront of the formation, but since she becomes extremely vulnerable to shuffles, her skills with more loose position restrictions see more use. Wicked Hack is a standard attack that has an appreciable increased Deathblow chance to help secure kills. If It Bleeds lets her attack position 3, and also gives her some bleeding synergy with the rest of the team. Terrifying YAWP! exchanges its Stun and exhaustion debuff for Stress and ACC debuff to the enemy front lines, which makes her a good participant in a Stress team. Breakthrough is the movement skill of choice which comes with a drawback of a guaranteed Daze, leaving her less able to react after pushing back into position. Iron Swan has very limited usability; Bleed Out has an expanded range and wears down the target's Deathblow resistance but the exhaustion debuff and restrictive position may make it less ideal for use.
Trinkets to choose for the Hellion are straightforward - pick those that improve her damage and accuracy. The Crushed Hemlock is nice on her, allowing her If It Bleeds to inflict both types of DoT ailments at once. You may want to consider the Exotic Snuff if getting shuffled proves to be too much of an issue for you. Her personal Bone Vest trinket is a staple for Stress-focused Hellions as it increases the Stress output of YAWP!
The Hellion, much like the Leper, favors being in the front to use her skills. Unlike the Leper, she has a very low Move resistance, so a good knockback can put her out of the fight as she has to reposition with Breakthrough and deal with exhaustion. While she's dazed herself you can move to take her out before she gets another turn to resume attacking the team.
