Crusaders of Light: Comprehensive Warrior Guide
Warrior can play melee DPS or tank role in the game. This article aims to give new players some advices on character builds in different situations, and those with established characters some tips on the runes.
Part 1: Skills
Available skills for Warrior:
Recommended tank skills for dungeons: no doubt you will need tanking skills to keep the mobs' aggro on you and survival skills to protect yourself. So the skills you can choose for a tank Warrior are: Lava Quake, Searing Chains, Tempest Rage, Deadly Forge, Ancestral Totem, Meteor Crater
I think Lava Quake and Searing Chains are 2 must-have skills here, and the rest 2 skills can be Tempest Rage and Tempest Rage if you are playing the dungeon for the first time, or they can be Deadly Forge and Meteor Crater if you are familiar with the dungeon and want to be able to deal more DPS.
Recommended DPS skills for dungeons: Meteor Crater, Ancestral Totem and Deadly Forge are highly recommended. You can replace Tempest Rage with Lava Quake depending on your preference.
Recommended skills for grinding / leveling / dailies: Anvil Drop + Meteor Crater + Deadly Forge make a good combo for these situations. If you are going to face tough mobs or doing a lot of quests you can choose Lava Quake as the 4th skill, otherwise you can consider replace it with Ancestral Totem.
Recommended skills for Tournament: Tournament is easier since your opponent is controlled by computer AI. Anvil Drop and Meteor Crater are 2 must have skills. You can add Deadly Forge and Lava Quake to your combo. This build can increase your winning chance against opponents whose combat power are 20% higher than you.
For Battlefields and Arena: If your team has healer and Ranger, and you are focusing on crowd control, you can consider removing Searing Chains. Magma Spikes and Deadly Forge are necessary in PvP and you can use them to pull enemy DPS over.
If your team has more than 2 Warriors including you, you can consider fast executing strategy. Both you and the other Warrior equip Anvil Drop and Meteor Crater can probably eliminate an enemy DPS pretty fast.
Part 2: Equipment
The relationship between character basic attributions and other stats is:
1 Strength = 1 physical damage
1 Stamina = 15 HP
1 Agility = 0 physical damage
1 Spirit = 53.5 MP
1 Intellect = 0 magical damage
- If you are the main tank in your party / guild, the first thing you need to consider is survival. And the priority of equipment stats is: HP>physical resist>magic resist>physical defense>magic defense>physical attack
- If you are DPS in the group, it's suggested to make physical damage the top priority instead of critical hit rate. The priority of equipment stats is: physical damage>strength> critical hit rate>accuracy>HP>all kinds of defense and resistances>magical damage
