While warriors in Majesty had the role as the basic melee class with no special abilities, warriors in HoA have the benefit of conveniently increasing stats and armor with shields in order to compensate for relatively low initial defense (and offense) stats. Given the great importance of armor in the game, the shield advantage significantly comes into play at all parts of the game, right from the beginning when shields can be obtained inexpensively. When plate armor and high-end items are obtained, Warriors becomes the best armored heroes in the game. While the rest of the stats do not look very impressive, the fast rate of gaining levels for warriors (requiring only 1000 xp) confers an additional advantage to this class.

Later on the Warrior is a relatively challenging class to play due to the lack of powerful high-end items. While Warriors have high armor, this quality is less useful against the most difficult foes which do damage so high that their attacks should best be defended with the Parry stat, rather than with armor.

Warriors can pray at Temples to Krolm to recieve the Double Attack ability to greatly improve their damage output. Willpower increasing items such as Shield Beard Rings are important to reduce the number of turns spent praying.

Valmogen easy strategy:

  • Create your hero - re-roll for max vitality. Strength, Willpower and 11 Intelligence are also useful.
  • With beginning 200 gold buy axe/hammer/mace and hard leather armour.
  • Get Stone Skin enchantment from Temple to Dauros, your armor should now be 10. Get more when it runs out.
  • Complete Royal Rat-Catcher quests and with all gold buy all armor items/spells/enchantments. This should give you 18+3 armor (not including flame shield), enough to survive Ratman Champions and Sewer Tunnels with next to no damage.
  • Get warhammer or similar and upgrade.
  • Get to Lv 7 with in Ratman Kingdom, then move on to Sewer Tunnels or Venn's Spire.
