Thread: Young Warrior training/hunting advice?

  1. Default Young Warrior training/hunting advice?

    Hey all, I've got my warrior up to 31 and wanted to see if I could get some advice on his training. Currently hunting OHE with Kroderine Soul. I have a lot of shield and CM points sitting unused; unsure of where to allocated them to:

    Also, any suggestions on a good hunting spot at this age? It seems like most creatures my level are going to be undead (which is difficult, as I'm in GOS). I'm hunting Cyclops with ease right now.

    Thanks!

    I don't have any experience with kroderine soul, but the glacier was my go-to for my warrior. Cold guardians in particular should be super easy.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    Shield throw is amazing. Highly recommend.

    Also check out Zul Logoth. I think I was there from like level 32 - 45 or so; really easy and local bounties.

  4. Default

    Arctic mants and tundra giants in icemule or jungle trolls in teras

    Thanks all, I'll try those

    If you're sticking with KS might want to get some passive damage like spike mastery, shield riposte, block mastery, armor spike mastery, etc. You're going to take lots of hits, so make them hurt your opponent.

    I'm not doing KS, but have a warrior at a similar level and find going OHE and THW with a katana to be very nice since you get 10CER crit weighting by default, can use flurry, overpower, and thrash with both grips. WSPEC adds AS for both grips (I did OHE) and you get a bonded OHE/THW with more AS from martial mastery. I disable, and buff with my shield out, and switch grips when it 1v1 to 2handed for easy kills.

    Also undead aren't difficult for GoS now. Especially undead hated foes! Bless is no longer necessary to hit them. Zul Logoth has great critters your age that are rich. Teras has a lot as well and also rich.

    I've got shield riposte, block mastery, as many passives as I can get. Absorb magic has been great fighting storm giants and cold guardians in Icemule, I am usually frying off of one or two berserks. Bonus is that nobody else appears to hunt there (at least, not using Bigshot). I've got (what I consider to be) a pretty nice OHE w/ weighting, so making short work of it. I will try out Zul Logoth once I get bored out here though.
