So I'm looking to roll a fighter (undecided on race) and can't find any starter builds in the forums. I see a lot of end-game builds but nothing that talks about initial stats.. Can someone point me to some builds that talk about starting stats? Or maybe throw your suggestion here?

Thanks!

Duh, scratch that. Just found the "Class Builds" forum. :o

what role would you like to perform with your fighter? damage dealer or tank? do you prefer dual weilding, sword and shield or using a two hander?

This is one of several things about 1st edition I preferred -- no "taunt" = no "tank" = no being shoved into a roll as a meat shield.

Indeed, they have to create the taunt ability just to give the "tank" something to do. As a melee I always loathed non-melee things like, I don't know, crowd control? Leave that to the enchanters and illusionists and mass sleep wands.

And "taunt" itself is anti-tactical, as everyone knows you go for the casters first. Thus only the stupidest, low-level monsters would even fall for it.


Eh, I suppose a newbie's innocent question thread ain't exactly the place for discussions of core game design. :)
