    I asked a question about noobie sampire to sampire expert and he suggest me an "ABC Warrior" for beggining because sampire is too expensive for new players(as all we know). Anyway I never heard about ABC Warrior so I create this toppic because i have questions. Also we can discuss about ABC Warrior's pros and cons

    120 Swordmanship
    120 Bushido
    120 Anatomy
    100 Resisting Spell
    100 Healing
    60 Chivalry

    My Questions:
    1. Human for doom, Elf for more one (more dex) which one do you prefer?
    2. Anatomy or Tactics which one deserve 120?
    3. Which gears do you prefer for this kind of build
    4. Pros and Cons?

    I'm not sure if normal warrior would be cheaper than Sampire. But i know it can be more worse.

    Well for a start ABC stands for Archery Bushido Chivalry, it is a boring over used template and is just as expensive because everybody plays it so require the same scrolls/gear.

    Elf get 20 Mana, not Dex, and I'd be a Human on every character that didn't need (for whatever purpose I was designing the character around) to be a Gargoyle.

    Anatomy or Tactics depends on the template, what other skills are needed, knowledge and preference. Tactics gives more damage.

    I wouldn't play one but the typical gear is things like Mace & Shield Glasses, Hunters Headress, Spirit Of The Totem, Despicable Quiver, Ranger's Cloak Of Augmentation, Crimson Cincture, Blackthorns Artys etc.

    Pros: Like Tamers there will rarely be anything in game you can't participate in even at a mediocre level. No learning curve.
    Cons: Scrolls, gear and ammo will be expensive because everyone else is doing the same.

    I have a similar toon that runs similar template (has parrying instead of resist, chivalry a bit higher and anat/parry a little lower). I classify this as a "paladin" warrior, but the name of a template is all semantics.

    I would stick with human unless you feel you really need the mana. You could get yourself a suit with enough mana regen and lower mana cost for this not to be a huge sticking point.
    I happen to feel tactics to be more valuable at 120 than anatomy. However, as I noted, I have higher chivalry on my template and can hit the 'close wounds' spell if I am in a pinch and need to run off and heal up.
    Gear is all a matter of preference. You can have Reflect physical damage gear, high stam suit (over 180), or any other combination of mods depending on what exactly you're trying to do. I also usually have some skill points on jewels for an extra boost.
    The pro is that it is a fairly easy template to train up and play with. However, you're going to want to find some way to leach life (likely on your weapons) since you're not running a sampire. My "paladin" is probably a toon I bring out only when I'm just wandering around and planning to hit some dungeons or minor bosses. I don't usually bring him out for big spawns. There are others who have really mastered this template that would tell you differently, but I prefer a sampire to a pally.

    Best of luck!
