ALL BUILDS revolve around:
1) HEAVY ARMOR as your default armor type!
2) ideal TANKING build (free points go into con)
3) never add points to int (int = 5 forever)


*Notation: when I say “every odd level…” it means the level you JUST became (i.e. you just turned level 9)

Table of Contents

I. Spear Warrior
a. All-around Build (can wield any type of spear weapon)
b. Long blade/Mace Build (less popular, but very easy formula to follow)


II. Axe/Hammer Warrior
a. All-around Build (can wield any type of dual/axe/hammer weapon)
b. Single Axe/Hammer Build (aka double-handed axe/hammer build – another very easy formula to follow, great for players who don’t like that dual weapon look)
c. Dual Axe Build (becoming increasingly popular, and with this build, you can wield the single axe/hammer as well)


III. Sword/Blade Warrior
a. All-around Build (can wield any type of dual/sword/blade weapon)
b. Single Sword/Blade Build (very easy build to follow, and has the classic look of the swordsman)
c. Dual Blade Build (becoming increasingly popular as well, as it somewhat is similar to the dual axe build)


IV. Claw/Fist Warrior
a. All-around Build (basically the only variety of claw/fist warrior that’s possible)


I. SPEAR WARRIOR

every even level: +2 str/+1 agi/+2 con
*every 10th level after 20 (level 30, 40, 50, etc.): +2 str/+2 agi/+1 con

so for example, you should look like this:
