Warrior Class Overview

Last updated on Sep 29, 2019 at 12:10 by Blainie 1 comment

Warriors are the melee-centered class. These characters are as tough as nails and masters of weaponry and tactics. The special abilities of the warrior are naturally combat-oriented.

Races for Warriors

Warriors can be played as any race on both the Alliance and Horde. They are the only class that can do this.


Warrior Specializations

Warriors have 3 talent specializations: Arms, Fury, and Protection.

  • Arms — This specialization capitalises on the prowess of Warriors and their mastery of weapons, ensuring that no movement is wasted in combat, regardless of the weapon chosen.
  • Fury — Warriors are known for their herculean strength and, as expected, Fury amplifies that to superhuman levels as they shrug off damage that would bring other classes to their knees.
  • Protection — This specialization utilises the combat experience of the Warrior to shield their allies and ensure they take the brunt of the party's damage.

Resources as a Warrior

The primary resource used by Warriors is Rage in all specializations.
