1a) Why a warrior?

So firstly, the big question! Why a warrior? Whats so good about a warrior? Aren't champions the more dominant physical attack class? This Guide will answer all of your questions that you will ever have about the Warrior Class. Firstly, I have been playing this game for exactly a year, and through my time of playing, I have been paying close attention to game changes and how exactly this game works. As we all have noticed, the more you item mall in this game, the better you will obviously be, IGG seems to like to make theyre games like that. You will notice that I do contribute to IGG, but this guide isn't just for item mallers, its for anyone who wants to see what building an almost perfect warrior is like. Don't expect to get all Mystic Grade 10 overnight, but use this guide to get as close as you can to what you need with the limited amounts of Time/Money you have.

When it comes to classes, I personally think that at fully maxed stats, a priest would be the most dominant. I only think this because at maxed, a priest has high magic attack which people have less armor defense for, and also the Many Shield and 15k heal every 8 seconds makes it very hard to kill them. But in my opinion, a warrior is a close second best due to its all around high stats.

1b) Talents and Skills


This is the section that most people worry about, but in the end if you think about it, Talents are all going to be maxed regardless. My only opinion to start off is to waste talent points and talents and not zodiac, due to the fact that you aren't really pvping at lower levels, and the talents are your base stats that never go away.

In the picture below, you will see the different talents you can learn in your talent tree. To start off, I would recommend Maxing the Attack Column and the Defense column only for AFK purposes. Other talents such as dodge and hit are needed for later levels when PVP becomes more of a worry. Perseus Swordplay and Perseus Defense aren't exactly needed because they are only really useful when attacking other warriors, but eventually they will be needed. My suggestion is that when you max everything but Perseus Swordplay and Perseus Defense, you should start working on your zodiac which I will talk more about in the Zodiac Topic. Personally, my talents are fully maxed, but I don't notice much of a difference with Perseus Swordplay and Perseus Defense.

Now it comes to skills, one of the most important aspects of the game in my opinion. Skills are very very important because when you're PvPing, the player with better skills will have more damage dealt, the more you damage, the faster the opponent dies, simple knowledge. My first suggestion is grab a book from the Wishing Pool three times everyday, you will eventually get books you want, and if you miss it, its a wasted chance to get books.

You can refer to the individual skills here http://gw.igg.com/guide/guide.php?acid=34

If by some chance you contribute to IGG, and you can buy books from the Credit Mall, the books you want are in order of priority:

Flash Chop 3 and 4 ( Warriors best attack, fastest primary cooldown time out of all classes)
At level 3 this skill does 220%(of your attack) + 1650. 10 second cooldown
At level 4 this skill does 300%(of your attack) + 2100. 10 second cooldown
These are your number 1 needed books, best and fasted attack, with high attack this is a deadly blow.

Whirwind 3 and 4 (Warriors second best damage attack)
At level 3 this skill does 160%(of your attack) + 750. 10 second cooldown
At level 4 this skill does 200%(of your attack) + 1120. 10 second cooldown
This attack is also very useful due to the fact that right after your Flash Chop, you would most likely be using this. It is very convenient that both of a warriors best attack only have a 10 second cooldown.

Holy Ward 4 and 5 (Warriors only self-buff)
At level 4 this buff gives you 20% reduced physical damage and 10% reduced magical damage.Lasts for 10 minutes
At level 5 this buff gives you 25% reduced physical damage and 15% reduced magical damage.Lasts for 10 minutes
These skills are needed, I use this buff constantly because it's pretty much an extra 25%/15% defense. Very useful for pvp because a warrior has the highest self buff stats

Rage Claw 3 and 4(AFK and in-between pvp attack)
At level 3 this skill does 80%(of your attack) + 300.Damage every 2 seconds= 100. 1 second cooldown
At level 4 this skill does 100%(of your attack) +400.Damage every 2 seconds= 180. 1 second cooldown
Most people don't really understand, but this is probably the most used attack by warriors. At high levels, this is the only attack you should be using in your AFK bar, and in during a pvp, it is used in between of other attacks due to its short cooldown and DPS(damage per second). This is important because this skill adds a bleed effect to the enemy and causes them to keep losing hp after its even used. The bleed effect adds up, so think about it, 4 x 180 = 720. Almost 1000 damage extra added just for hitting them with this attack.

Steel Rain 3 and 4( Best AoE attack)
At level 3 this skill does 50%(of your attack)+ 700. 16 second cooldown
At level 4 this skill does 80%(of your attack) + 1200. 16 second cooldown
This is a very good attack when it comes to PvPing with high attack, and AfKing at lower levels. Not as important as the other attacks.

Expose Armor 4 and 5 (Best debuff)
At level 4 this debuff reduces enemy physical defense by 250 and magical defense by 180. Lasts for about 10 seconds
At level 5 this debuff reduces enemy physical defense by 400 and magical defense by 300. Lasts for about 10 seconds
This is very important to use in PvP's because it gives you that much more of an advantage, and at low levels its important to use because warriors attacks are usually low.

Other Skills-
Stun is important, but using stun 3 is just fine, stun 5 uses 140 more mp and has 5 seconds less cooldown. Not important to worry about
Light Chop is just a terrible attack, don't use it past level 50
Blood Claw is a weaker version of rage claw, don't use past level 50
Sword Storm is a weaker version of Steel Rain, don't use past level 50.

1c) Zodiac

Zodiac is very important for PvPing, not as much for AFKing on monsters. It can make you a lot better or worse to other characters, so you have to really pay attention to it. I dont suggest to do anything in zodiac until you max out your talents, because it is usually a waste around higher zodiacs.

My Zodiac

My zodiac isn't the best it could be, but for now its fine due to the defenses. As you can see, I kept the defense a lot higher then I keep the attacks, and thats because a warrior doesn't have much mp to waste, and being able to defend against more is at times better then being able to attack back.

If you've noticed, I don't use flash chop in Zodiac for a certain reason( that I've tested). Flash Chop 4 uses 380 mp, while zodiac at my level does 100% more, so 380 x 2 = 760mp. For a Warrior that's a lot of mp that could be used elsewhere. I tested on a champion with Flash Chop on his defense zodiac at 16%, Flash Chop 4 on Zodiac only does about 2k more on a non-crit, and 4k more on a crit. You can ask yourself, is 2-4k that important when you could be using other attacks or another flash chop? Personally I keep it off for that reason, but you can do what you want and test out your own ways that work.

My advice for zodiac is to get the defenses up high first, then worry about the attacks later. The attack skills are the exact attacks skills you need for zodiac, but my defense skills were set up for a mage at that time.

Class Suit

Class suit explanation is really small because there really isn't much to it. Most people don't usually ever have enough points (including me) even when beating Atlantis in perfect timing everyday. So make of what you have.

Class Suit I
1) Weapon: Always goes first
2) Belt: Good Hp difference
3) Amulet: Only costed one so I thought it would be cool
4) Shield: Looks cool and it's very useful, nice defense
5) Armor: REALLY Important, once you get the level, get it right away
6) Helmet: Still haven't gotten it, I'll update a picture when I do
Everything else can be left until way, way later. You need to start saving for class suit II

Class Suit II
1) Weapon: Such a nice upgrade
2) Belt: I'll update when it get's upgraded
3) Amulet: I'll update when it get's upgraded
4) Armor: I'll update when it get's upgraded
5) Shield: Do armor first this time, I'll update when it get's upgraded
6) Helmet: I'll upgrade when it gets upgraded
After these upgrades, Start doing the rest of your Class Suit I upgrades that you missed out on before.

2b) Holy Suit

Holy suit isn't a very good idea to do unless you have your equipment to at least classic due to it's very high cost. It's more worth it to upgrade your equipment stats, rather then doing holy suit. Obviously how holy suit works is, for each level you put into it, and extra percent off of your base stat gets added.
I.E 1000 attack with 10% holy suit is 100+ attack.

You can see my holy suit stats percentages in the equipment section, but you can see that I did the most important things to Level 10 Silver first, and im still slowly getting my Holy Suit up. Ill keep this updated, but you can see my Holy Points for now in the picture below.

3a) PVE and PVP Information

PvE= Player vs Enemy

At higher levels this is very simple, stay in mobs with about 4-8 monsters, and only use rage claw as a skill. Most people say to use AoE Skills such as Steel Rain, but it definitely does not go as fast when you do due to mp. Because you're a warrior, most monsters don't hurt you, so sit at something about 7-8 levels higher then you and let the experience accumulate .

PvP= Player vs Player

Most warriors don't really know what skills to use in PvP with other characters. But I've found the most effective thing to do. First off, Priests about the same level as you are a knightmare, you cant kill them, they can't kill you(unless they mall). All they do is heal and run, so watch out. But otherwise, here is my combo order.

In order of what I use:
Steel Rain
Expose Armor
Flash Chop
Rage Claw(repeatedly until Flash Chop is available)
Flash Chop
Rage Claw

The reason I use Steel Rain first is because it causes your Flash Chop to hit more. I dont exactly know why but it works. Expose Armor is always useful at the beginning of a PvP to get your opponent weaker then what they are. Then the only 3 attacks you need are Flash Chop, Whirlwind and Rage Claw. Most of the time if your Flash Chop and Whirlwind Crit, your off to a good start. But then again, depends on who you're facing.

Also, always have your best pet on during a pvp and always have holy ward on for the extra resistances that can help you.

3b) Interesting Theories

Theory #1:

"Steel Rain in a PvP for a better chance to not miss"
This has been tested to be true. A champion with 860 dodge let me test this out on him, whenever I used steel rain first, my Flash Chop would never miss.

This theory was tested 20 times:
With Steel Rain my Flash Chop hit 10 times
Without Steel Rain my Flash Chop hit 4 times

Theory 2#:

"Warriors need Flash Chop in Zodiac"
This has been tested to be False. If your flash chop is level 4 and is above level 8 on the zodiac, you are doing about 1-2k with or without crits, and you are wasting double the mp.

Without Flash Chop on my Zodiac, I can do: Steel Rain, Expose Armor, Flash Chop, Whirlwind, Rage Claw x4, Flash Chop and Whirlwind without running out of mp.
With Flash Chop on my Zodiac, I can do: Steel Rain, Expose Armor, Flash Chop, Whirlwind, and Rage Claw x2.

You tell me whats more worth it
