WOW GOLD MVP - WoW Class Guides - Warrior Guide

Warrior Guide

The warrior is well known for being a rough-tough, fighting machine. Whether you opt to be a tank, holding aggro and protecting the group as they burn down the bad guy or a DPS warrior dealing out damage and taking down the enemy, you have a lot of options and a lot of advantages to other classes. Warriors are often needed in groups, making them a fun class to play with others and an asset to guilds and raids. You also have a very wide range of abilities in combination with great melee, hand-to-hand combat. You can wear mail and plate armor later on so you have the highest armor and you can take hits better than other classes. Warriors are very dependant on your gear so it will be important to keep it up to par as you level.

Warriors are great at fighting more than one target, taking down a target faster and protecting other party members. Warriors are also great for playing solo. Almost all races can be warriors and warriors can use all weapons except for wands so you really have many choices within the game for what you want to do and how.

Some things that warriors have to over come are the inability to heal themselves and managing aggro from mobs. Warriors also have many battle shouts that are helpful to certain situations. Warriors also get different stances and some abilities can only be performed in certain stances. You have to work out how to change stances effectively.

Available classes which can be warriors are: All Races except Blood Elves
