Warrior Starting Equipment



Notes About This Class

  • This class has the lowest total of Attunement, Intelligence and Faith, making it an ideal choice for pure melee builds, though knights base Attunement, Intelligence, Faith and Luck are only one level higher total than warrior in exchange for more FP from higher attunement.
  • Starts with highest Strength stat.



Builds That Use This Class

  • Pure Strength
  • Best class for a Min / Max quality build
  • Interestingly Enough It Saves You 4 More Points If You're Doing A Hollow Build Unlike The Thief Which Is Focused Around Bleed/Poison Luck And Dex Build

      Just started playing this game on PC and I'm having trouble with my warrior build. I'm grinding in Lothric to try and build my stats, but I can't change weapons, and trying to take on the wyvern would be much easier if i could snipe him with the crossbow to start. Any advice would be appreciated.

        "Interestingly Enough It Saves You 4 More Points If You're Doing A Hollow Build Unlike The Thief Which Is Focused Around Bleed/Poison Luck And Dex Build" okay now ***** off

        • Best class for a pure hollow build24 Aug 2016 14:35  

          ...with 18/18 STR/DEX investment for a wider array of tools.<br/><br/>Pump 30 into luck, rock a Hollow Lothric Shield and a Hollow Lothric Sword, spend the rest on VIG/END/VIT according to your preference, use rings like Chloranty, Ring of Favor, Estus and Knight's Slayer and you got yourself an amazing Aldritch Covenant lvl 70 character that will absolutely destroy in PVP.<br/>Don't forget about carthus rouge tho, vital for playing aggresive and beating shield users.<br/>Great for co-op PCP & PVE aswell.<br/><br/><br/>If you just want to use Anri's Deprived or Knight are sligthly better because you'll only need 10 DEX and maybe 12 or 13 STR for a 100% dmg reduction shield that can parry.<br/>

            Far over the Misty Mountains cold<br/>To dungeons deep and caverns old<br/>We must away, ere break of day<br/>To find our long forgotten gold The pines were roaring on the heights<br/>The wind were moaning in the night<br/>The fire was red, it flaming spread<br/>The trees like torches blazed with light

            • This class is definitely worth going for it11 May 2016 12:56  

              I've been playing soul series ever since they came out and I can tell you pure strength always was the best imo. I played every class but I have to be honest, i had the most of success as an warrior. Try this: rush for 99. Don't do anything for next 2-3 days, just farm souls at the same place with S. Ring for an addition (I didn't not mention other items because they aren't so ez to be found). Once you hit str 99, go for dexterity. Once you hit those 2 on 99, just try farming any enemies that could 1 shot you. It will become one shooting party lmao. But seriously, try that out, you can one / two shot most of the bosses.

                Nice starting class if you were planing on a pure strength build. I'm thinking of using this one or the knight, probably this one since I like high damage outputs

                • Easy str to dex starting class09 Apr 2016 04:19  

                  Im gonna start my 1st playthrough with this class. Pretty easy switch from early str build to late game dex build. Level up my strenght to 24 to get the butchers knife. Then all non vgr, end, vit points to dex to get it to 20 as farron greatsword needs 20 dex. Btw anyone can answer to this question: Farron greatsword has C/A scaling at +5 so would sharp infusion on it make any sense as it would be -/S scaling apparently? Strenght would remain at 24 (could be lowered to 18 by respeccing with pale tongue as farron str req is 18) and dex could be pushed to about 40-50.

                  • The Bandit Replacement Mk. III02 Apr 2016 09:47  

                    To be real, I think this is the bandit we've always needed, but never got. I'm impressed by the starting stats, considering it's better than the knight in terms of damage, and good armor to boot. I hope that battleaxe is cooler than it's been in 1 & 2.

                    • Rush to two handed weapons16 Mar 2016 14:01  

                      High dex two handed weapons will take a while to qualify for, but this will be the clear choice to rush to the heavy, high damage str weapons.

                      • Northern Warrior04 Mar 2016 08:21  

                        This class's character design probably comes from Anglo-Saxon warriors from 7th-mid 8th century. Look at Northern Warrior's helmet, it's probably inspired from Anglo-Saxon warrior's famous Coppergate Helmet. Also the clothes they're wearing is more similar to Anglo-Saxon warriors than Vikings.
