The warriors are the masters of war, able to hit hard and yet take multiple hits themselves while barely flinching. Focusing on mainly melee attack, warriors are more than capable users in the wielding of swords, axes, shields, and hammers, which make them frightening opposition to meet at close range. Able to wear some of the heaviest armours in the game, warriors are well protected in the field of battle that they so cherish to take part in and are normally the first into battle. They are also capable of special stances that modify different aspects of their abilities and also shouts that help to aide their allies or even, on some occasions, cripple enemies.
Anyone that enjoys being in the heat of battle with a powerful weapon in hand should consider the warrior as either their primary or secondary Profession. However, warriors can only wear the heavy armour they're known for if they are taken up as a primary profession, yet secondary warriors can be useful. Even if your character isn't the type to get into the middle of combat, the protective shouts and stances are definitely a welcome advantage.
