    hey all,

    I am curious what the standard melee builds look like these days? Any advice?

    Something like this:
    Archery, Fencing, Mace Fighting, or Swordsmanship;
    Tactics;
    Anatomy;
    Healing;
    Chivalry;
    Bushido;
    Parry.

    It is a solid warrior. Take a look in the Warrior Forum, especially at their FAQs for more information.

    Bushido seems to be the new hotness... any particular reason? I've never really looked at it...

    Bushido is good for adding more offense to your fighter. Personally I prefer Resisting Spell instead of Bushido. Your defence is great with Resisting Spells, Parry, and a Self Repair shield.

    A big advantage that Bushido has is you don't lose too much block chance when using a one-handed weapon vs a two-handed weapon. This allows you to use potions without disarming.
