Class Overview


A Warrior’s training serves him well, both on the battlefield and in smaller skirmishes. Sword and Shield are an extension of his arms, and while his shield grants a high level of defense, he uses it beyond such capabilities. Like his sword, it is a deadly weapon, which can immobilize his foes, knock them to the ground, or sweep them out of his way.


Combined with the lethal edge of his sword and ability to speed across the battlefield to engage and slice down foes, the Warrior is a force of nature unto himself.


Below are skills that Warriors will find useful in combat.

Lore


The Goyen Mercenary Troop was a community of those who had nowhere to go and nothing to lose or gain. Some of them were on the wanted list, so occasional attacks ensued, along with infighting between the ranks. A Swordsman named Goyen came into power within the troop, and through changes he made, the number of mercenaries started growing. They learned from each other's example, swore to be brothers, setting aside all conflict, and thus, their fame began to spread. Their leader, Goyen, was a natural, born to wield a greatsword as big as an average man. No one else in the troop possessed the same level of skill as Goyen, when it came to greatswords. Goyen attempted to train several of the Brothers, but they were unable to completely absorb Goyen's skills, or copy his techniques..


The day of triumph that the Goyen mercenaries were promised was never to come, unbeknownst to the Goyen Brotherhood. When they headed to the front, where the war’s thickest and most horrific fighting was taking place, the support promised by the Dandelion Army was nowhere to be found. It was not long before the revelation hit: they were being used as cannon fodder.


Goyen ordered his men to retreat, taking to the front lines to cover their escape. Though he fought with every ounce of skill he possessed, and took down wave after wave of attacker, he was overrun, and met his death protecting the men he had bound in Brotherhood and camaraderie. The greatsword he carried fell from his fingertips as his lifeless body slid to the ground, but before it could hit the ground, it disappeared.


Though the Brotherhood vowed vengeance for Goyen’s death, it was to no avail. Dandelion lost the war against Larcsy and was consigned to the annals of history. Thwarted from their revenge, they instead began to search for the greatsword Goyen bore, believed to now contain his soul.
