I. Profession overview
As with other carryover professions from the original Guild Wars, the Warrior shares many similarities with its predecessor, able to become offensive juggernauts and apply high damage strikes to foes. Warriors also have support capabilities with shouts and debuffs that can aid their allies and demoralize the opponent.
The Warrior is a melee DPS class, and is part of the soldier category, wearing heavy armor.
a. Unique ability
The Warrior has an adrenaline bar that will charge every time they attack. There are three levels of adrenaline that can be stored, and each weapon will have a burst weapon skill that will use stored up adrenaline to unleash a potentially devastating attack. Higher levels of adrenaline storage will increase the damage or benefit of the burst skill.
b. Unique stat
Brawn is the unique stat for the Warrior. It increases the damage or benefit of their burst skills.
III. Weapons and skills
Below is a list of weapons the Warrior will use.
Below is a list of skills tied to each weapon. Note that a two-handed weapon grants five skills (1-5 on the skill bar), a one-handed weapon grants three skills (1-3 on the skill bar), and off-handed weapons grant two skills (4 and 5 on the skill bar)
