Fighters are a rather unassuming class geared heavily toward defensive fighting with heavy missile support. Their class powers are not nearly so impressive as, for example, Barbarians in terms of damage or maneuverability, but do provide significant long-term defensive bonuses that, combined with a strong skill set featuring Find Weakness, Archery, Dodge, and Athletics and generally excellent starting gear makes Fighters a safe, if somewhat boring, choice. Conventional pairings for a Fighter are drakelings or dwarves since both start with excellent starting gear, Toughness and Strength, and complement the Fighter's skill set well. Players wishing to take advantage of the strong archery abilities of Fighters may wish to try more agile races (elves or hurthlings).

Basic Information Edit

Base Stats Edit

The base stats for male Fighters are tabulated below. Female Fighters will, on average, have -1 Strength and +1 Dexterity compared to males. Note that any value may vary from these typical values by around +/-5 due to starsigns or birth effects, and further if the question system is not employed. See Talk:Archer for details on how these tables were generated. Fighters typically receive a large bonus to Strength, Toughness, and Willpower. Most Fighters are likely to be literate, although there are a number of borderline cases.

Crowning Gifts Edit

Unfortunately, four of the weapons available are two-handed, which is not ideal for a class that tends to be more defensively inclined; however, both Vanquisher and Grod are very desirable weapons nonetheless because of their high damage and slaying powers. Obviously Protector and Bracers of war are both excellent and extremely desirable artifacts.
