Fighter

Fighters are brutish weapon masters, skilled in the art of killing. They may specialize in any weapon type, and learn numerous new fighting techniques as they advance in level. Fighters receive more hit points and attack bonuses per level than any other class, and are invaluable in a close melee.

Fighter is the starting point for numerous sub-classes which the player may choose to gain levels in at any time. These sub-classes include: Monk, Ranger, Paladin, Blackguard, Dreadnaught and Barbarian.

How to play: The fighters strength is in his domination of pure combat. When playing alone, a fighter is fully capable of gaining the necessary experience. However, the fighter may choose to lead a group to gain an even greater advantage. As the tank (primary melee combatant) in a group, the fighter will give the group the benefit of his superior armor and fighting skill, while benefiting from the healing spells of a cleric, or the magical aids of a mage.

The fighters greatest weakness is his inability to move secretly, or get into or out of tricky spots. For this reason, the fighter outside of a group should steer towards simple combat areas, and be content only with the treasures obtains from his kills.
