Warrior icon
A Warrior is the easiest Hero to begin with. Throw in some decent armor, and he is nearly impossible to kill; his health skyrockets as he gains levels, his attack is good enough. However, like the Scout, he is heavily dependent upon the quality of his gear, and can be outclassed if superior gear is unavailable to acquire.

Warriors can use the following types of items: Common, Melee Weapon, Heavy Weapon, Light Armor, Medium Armor, Heavy Armor, Shield.

Warriors can learn warrior perks up to Mastery Level 3.

The primary stats of a level 0 Warrior are: 1 Health; 0 Magic; 0 Command

The primary stats of a level 9 Warrior are: 6 Health; 1 Magic; 3 Command.

Notes: Edit

Weapon Master and Combat are always very important, and Combat 5 is extremely important for Round Attack. Athletics 1 is an early priority for Forced March, then becomes less important than Weapon Master & Combat. Armor Master is of course key for survivability and should be prioritised over the other combat perks if you're worried about living through fights.. Willpower is only a high priority if you expect to be fighting a lot of spellcasters or are a morale-penalising World of Death. Blacksmithing can be useful for early income, but if picking it over combat-oriented perks impairs your ability to clear dungeons, it may have a negative effect on income overall. It becomes more important later on in large shards, when high-level gear can cost enormous sums to repair. Constitution is less important than it appears: by the time you can get level 5 perks, 2 HP regeneration will be trivial compared to the damage output of a serious army; it's main use is speeding up hit-point recovery between turns on the strategic map.

Notes: Edit

Berserker is probably the strongest option and definitely the simplest to run. Usually Warrior is strongest if supported by tier 1 units through the early levels then geared up to run solo, and Berserker is best at that on most shards. Slayer offers fun options, but having to expend perks on both ranged & melee combat means that he will excel at neither until very late in his career. Holy Knight can be competitive with Berserker on early shards, where good gear can't be bought at the stronghold and therefore running solo is less viable, but his extremely poor magic skill (tied for last place with Warlord, the other Commander/Warrior hybrid) is a severe weakness once more magic spells are acquired in the campaign and places him in last overall - though it is worth mentioning that Smite Evil makes him more useful on attacking a World of the Dead or the home shards of evil Masters. Dark Knight, like Slayer, gets a fun skill but is penalised by not being able to do both of the things he does well in the same turn. On the other hand, powerful single-target buffs such as Vampirism can strengthen his ability to solo enemy armies and compensate for his lower Warrior skills compared to the Berserker.
