- "Unafraid of light weaponry, they plow into the fray with little regard for injury. Masters of all melee tools, they put little faith in the magical arts."
- ―In-game description[src]
Warriors are true fighters and experts at melee combat. Preferring to mix offensive power with defensive ability, warriors prefer to use a good sword or axe with a shield and shrug off attacks with heavy armor. Warriors do not tire easily and are capable of repairing their own gear.
The Warrior is a premade class.
Description and useEdit
Warriors are powerful melee fighters, preferring to get up-close and personal with the enemy. Their heavy armor provides protection from marksmen and other warriors as they plow through enemies with sword, axe and mace, greatly reducing the damage they take.
Warriors are extremely well protected, able to comfortably use heavy armor and shields to defend against the enemy's strikes, and their high health gained from the Endurance attribute allows them to shrug off what damage is done to them.
In terms of attack, warriors are no less able. A warrior can wield any melee tool, and even use their fists if necessary. As such, a disarmed warrior is never without a weapon, and if their original weapon is lost they can simply fight on with whatever weaponry can be taken from the opponent. The versatile nature of a warrior means that they can carry a range of weapons, and their high encumbrance limit (due to strength) allows them to take to the field with three or four weapons without severely impacting their carrying ability. This allows a warrior to fight with a favorite weapon, while still having a few backups in case they are disarmed.
Skills of the forge are another hallmark of the warrior, and they can quickly and easily repair their own damaged equipment or that of felled foes which the warrior intends to sell. Warriors who are particularly skilled can even enhance their equipment beyond what is normally possible (through the Expert armorer perk).
Lastly, warriors need to be able to quickly close the space between them and their chosen foe, and so Athletics is an essential skill, allowing warriors to cover ground quickly, and restore their fatigue quicker.
