Fighter

Description

Fighters are a diverse group whose only common theme is a lifelong devotion to the skills of physical combat.  Fighters range from noble paladins who follow the ideals of Brangwen or Caitlin or neutral guardsmen dedicated to Karak to the raging berserk in thrall to Sorban...they are truly diverse. Most possess a high Strength and Constitution to aid them in their physical battles and spend much of their learning time studying how to use weapons of different types, as well as mastering hand-to-hand combat and self-defense.

Fighters can gauge the strength of opponents, have the broadest knowledge of weapons and armour and have the highest Hitpoints and number of attacks per round (with non-Projectile weapons) of any Class.

Permitted Armour: Plate, Chain, Leather and Cloth.

Wizard in Charge: Moloch
Deputy Wizard: Prozac

Specialisation

Fighters are capable of increasing certain skills beyond the normal limits, and then training them up to that new maximum. "Ask George about specialisation" in our Guild Hall to get the full information, as well as learn the steep financial cost involved, but here is the short version...


  • Level 18: You may increase one Weapon skill that is Primary for Fighters (Blade, Blunt, Polearm or Two-Handed) by +5.
  • Level 20: You may now do the exactly same for your Armoury skill.
  • Level 25: You may increase Armoury again and any Weapon skill (as before) again!

...this means that Fighter can end up with +10 Armoury and +5 in two skills or +10 in one, enabling them to use legendary armours and weapons, as well as hitting more often with those weapons. Generally it is advised to focus on those weapons that your Race is already talented with or that your Multi-Class choice utilises.

Fighter Races

Artrell: Facing great difficulty with low Strength and Constitution, yet with excellent Double Wielding abilities, it is recommended Artrell focus on using one Blade and several lighter weapons and forgo some armour in favour of defensive skills such as Parry. Weight is a major issue, but joining a second Class with lighter armour such as Rogue, Monk or Warmage helps greatly as do Strength boosting items. Frustrating and difficult, recommended for experienced Players only.

Dwarf: Suited to  Shields and either a Blade or Blunt, Dwarves make excellent and durable Fighters. Many move to Cleric or Ranger (Stag Clan) later to capitalise on their weaponry skills.

Elf: Few Elves become Fighters, but those that do are best off with a Projectile and a Blade and Shields to back it up. Later movement to Ranger or Druid is recommended and dictates specialisation. Low levels can be frustrating.

Faerie: Incredibly difficult, as low Strength and Constitution grant the same issues as for Artrell. The same advice for Multi-Class applies. Double Wielding is recommended, with Blade and Knife being excellent.

Giant: Gods of the Two-Handed weapons and very rarely the Polearm, you will suffer for money and that can be nasty given food costs, repairing armour will gouge you too. Your damage output however, is obscene. Monk or Cleric are the least painful Secondary classes.

Gnome: A hard road indeed, with a likely multi-Class into Warmage or Cleric. The path of Blunt and Shields will help survival.

Half-Elf: Similar later choices as Elves, but an easier route to there. 

Human: The standard. Your skills are 10% cheaper and you can choose to Specialise as you like. That and your Specialisation, Multi-Class and personality are what will really define you.

Nymph: Utter madness! Nymphs suit a Projectile weapon over all others and find Fighters very hard. In theory a Blunt focus could help with later shift to Druid.

Satyr: Similar to Dwarves, except with Druid as perhaps a wiser choice Multi-Class choice than Cleric.

Half-Orc: Powerful, hard hitting and scary, best utilised as Blade focused aggressive types early on. Costs for skills and equipment can be a problem. Later moves to Rogue (Bandit) or Ranger (Bear Clan) are highly recommended.

Halfling:Similar to the Faeries, you will struggle in heavy armour. Your Dexterity however and Knife skills mean similar Double Wielding actions. Later shifts to Rogue (Any) and Monk (Physical/Defensive) are most likely to succeed.

Fighter Multi-Classes

Fighters are fortunate in that it is possible to play all the way to the top levels as a Single-Class Fighter. This is because top-end Plate exists giving an edge no other Class has in terms of physical armour. However, much of a character can be made via the Multi-Class system as below...

Fighter-Cleric: The addition of armour boosting abilities, healing and a variety of utility skills makes up for the platemail loss. Offensive spells are of little use, but your physical attacks will ruin the Undead, Infernal and evil players!

Fighter-Druid: Magical defences substitute for physical, but you will take more damage. Massive utility gains however and some damage increases, along with a follower make up for this.

Fighter-Monk: Your Monk State will determine your play-style, with Physical ones boosting many of your already scary skills. Great healing and adaptability too. You get hit a lot less, but hurt a lot more.

Fighter-Ranger: Definitely squishier, but unparalleled utility plus some fine increases in damage output. Plus a follower! Smart Clan choice is essential for success, though...

Fighter-Rogue: Difficult. Some areas will be off-limits, but you can seriously ruin a foe with extended preparation. Suitable for more thoughtful play-styles. You're much easier to hurt, but a thoughtful approach can overcome this. Specialisation choices are of prime importance.

Fighter-Warmage: Often ill-suited to Fighter Races, it is possible to truly offend the foe with a combination of clever spells, followers and Fighter skills. You take terrible damage when it goes wrong, however...
