Welcome to the TenTonHammer Arena Warrior Guide!
Warriors are a fearsome sight in the arena, and almost all teams want to have atleast one for the damage output and capabilities they have to help the team. They have great HP, and can dish out a lot of damage should they spec correctly and get their hands on a good weapon.
Popular talents in the Arena for Warriors are tipically based on Fury or Arms, almost always having mortal strike as it gives a big help to your team, since you reduce their team's healing by 50%! Damage-dealing abilities are always welcome, since you will be needing to take people out as quickly as possible, or at least, if you're wielding a mace, incapacitate their healer or support!
Focus on one target and try to incapacitate them as much as you can; you will probably be needing to use berserker rage and deathwish (if you have it) to avoid being feared. A common tactic teams without warriors use is to ignore the warrior while focusing his teammate, so they do not give you extra rage. You will be needing to work around this by hitting as hard and fast as you can to get your needed rage and finish whoever you're on!
Don't charge in, always stay in range of your support, or you might get teamed up on and possibly killed - this will be a nonissue as you obtain better gear and resilience, but remember, should you try to go in alone and leave your partner(s) behind, you will be set at a disadvantage!
Always be mindful of paladins, if you can hit them and interrupt them enough, you will force them to use the bubble to save themselves, thus giving you the upper hand for a quick kill of the paladin later.
If you have a shield on, while it is hard to use spell reflect on warlocks, keep an eye on the enemy mages's casting bars, and make sure to return their deadly spells right back at them!
As a warrior, be aware your main strength is killing cloth users, so if you can manage to tell your teammates to support you while you focus on one of the cloth users, you will be able to use your character to its maximum effect and possibly kill that cloth user in no time with support - always remember to be in Line of Sight of your healers or ranged, though!
Stay tuned for more updates to this guide, remember, you will win some, you will lose some, but in the end, play to have fun!
