  • Being a close range class, it's important to focus on health and speed instead of attack, as Berserk/Frenzy will always provide you with an attack boost.
  • As your beginner class, the Fighter is really easy to master once you understand the weapon mechanics and which stat is important when using them.
  • The Fighter has the highest base health out of all playable classes, but suffers from low speed, making them especially vulnerable against ranged attacks and quick enemies.
  • Fighters can make good use of some Holy Skills for a wider range of support: Holy Armor allows them to take damage more easily and provides rechargeable thorns, Glide gives them a much needed speed boost, Dispel will neutralize speedy spellcasters, and Bless Weapon will make their attacks even more accurate. While Fear is an option for crowd control, it's far outclassed by Intimidate, and both Heal and Sleep are useful for most classes, not just Fighters.
  • Teleport can be useful for catching up to quick enemies if the player doesn't have Charge or the Restless Blade.
  • Fighters hit hard and die hard, being near impossible to kill due to their overpowering health and defense, and punishing to fight, due to their high damage. Its better to focus on these two aspects of a Fighter while playing as one.
