Notes and Tips About Warrior

Notes: A well-balanced class, their decent armor and shield make them a solid choice for complete beginners. Their high attack stats mean that they can wield most of the Black Armor items right away and most early game weapons. One should swap out their broken sword for a more powerful weapon when they can find one, since it's rather weak and pointless to upgrade, alternately you can infuse it with Old Mundane Stone or Poison Stone to put its low stamina consumption as your advantage. The Morning Star can be obtained extremely early in Majula for those without the pre-order weapons. Their Intelligence and Faith are low, but balanced, though they require 5 more Attunement (and 10 Int. for Magic Weapon or 12 Faith for Heal) to use a spell.

      Definitely the mos solid choice for beginners, and a great starting point for many a build. That starting strength and dexterity is a delight.

        There is some nuance to this class because while it may start with a bad weapon but if you get your hands on the morning star in Majula or get lucky with a petrified something you should be pretty set for the early game
