Fighters are the most simple warrior class of the three, because they have no active special abilities. Just like rangers and paladins, they have wide array of weapons and armor they can use. Their only character ability is Strength. The advanced weapon specialization allows them to spend over two points on weapons skills, which no other class can do, making them the best weapon specialist. Due to their simplicity, they don't require much micro-managing.
Character abilities tableEdit
|Min. requirement||Max. requirement|
Note: For the information of this table, the human class was used, because humans don't have any bonuses to the primary abilities and act as a neutral. For all other races except elves, these numbers are slightly different.
Advanced Weapon SpecializationEdit
Advanced Weapon Specialization raises the number of points that can be invested into a specific proficiency from one point to five points. As a result, fighters may do more damage and hit more often with weapons from the specific proficiency. For more information on proficiency points, see Weapon proficiency.
