The Bard's Tale Wiki

The Warrior is the basic fighter class in all Bard's Tale games. Like the Paladin, he can use most kinds of armor and weaponry. Likewise, he develops his ability for multiple attacks.


  • Try to go for high numbers (17+) in strength and constitution when creating a warrior. A high dexterity is also nice, as it lowers the character's AC. Intelligence is of lesser importance to a warrior.
  • As he can do multiple attacks, use most weapons and can protect himself by heavy armor, the warrior is the most obvious choice for the front row.
  • In Thief of Fate, as the game proceeds, monsters tend to have more hit points than even a warrior can subtract in one hit. Therefore, characters with critical hit ability become more effective front row fighters. This means that your warrior might be a suitable candidate to become a Geomancer.
