  • Reduced the progression Great Axe TP sets down a bit, re-arranged remaining. Removed most of the Delve items, which are probably an unnecessary time sink for a beginner to worry about at this point. - Lusiphur (talk) 05:59, 30 January 2022 (EST)
  • Added Ranged weapons section. Also added Steel Cyclone, Enmity, Fast Cast, and Evasion sets; while updating Fell Cleave and Breaks sets to be more current. Lusiphur (talk) 18:18, 28 January 2022 (EST)

  • Adding my personal idle sets, some are not exactly optimal as I'm reworking them now after I've got sakpata and not sure what to put in some slots. Feel free to improve them --Neviskio (talk) 06:26, 24 January 2022 (EST)
  • Added a ukko's fury set that may be viable, plan to update all sets eventually if I can find good sources as I'm not an expert --Neviskio (talk) 00:42, 17 January 2022 (EST)
  • Working through updating these at the best of my knowledge, added for now a high end hybrid TP set --Neviskio (talk) 00:25, 17 January 2022 (EST)

Introduction

Warrior is one of the premier damage-dealing jobs, with access to a huge array of weapon types and supporting armor. It also has the tools to function as a back-up tank when the need arises. In the current endgame landscape, Warrior's spectrum of damage types and options on how to use those weapons is often sought after for Odyssey. In other content like Ambuscade, Dynamis - Divergence, Escha, and Omen; Warrior's strong Weapon Skill output and ability to skillchain with any job makes it a favorite among players. Warrior is an evergreen popular damage dealer in nearly every type of content, making it a great job to take up.

    • A solid subjob when starting out fresh. Upgrade to one of the other subjobs mentioned after reaching level 30.

Merits

Group 1
Name Description Level Notes
Berserk Recast Shorten recast time by 10 seconds. 5/5 No brainer. This substantially raises your Berserk uptime.
Defender Recast Shorten recast time by 6 seconds. 0/5 Doesn't get much use.
Warcry Recast Shorten recast time by 10 seconds. 0/5 Falls short of the other categories, even with Savagery.
Aggressor Recast Shorten recast time by 10 seconds. 0~5/5 You may choose to merit this to align the recasts of Berserk and Aggressor, but Double Attack is usually more valuable.
Double Attack Rate Increase dobule attack rate by 1 percent. 0~5/5 Typically the best category, but with current gear it is possible to reach 100% Double Attack rate without these merits.
Group 2
Name Description Level Notes
Warrior's Charge Will double your next attack. Recast: 5min. Increase chance of triple attack by 5 percent. 0~1/5 Warrior's current armory and total traits giving a ridiculous high rate of Double Attack renders this skill's benefits marginal. Don't bother beyond a single level, if at all.
Tomahawk Expends a throwing tomahawk to inflict a special defense down effect on an enemy. Recast: 3min. Increase duration of effect by 15 seconds. 4~5/5 Rarely useful, but indispensable when needed. The worst part of this skill is it's recast.
Savagery Adds TP bonus effect to Warcry. Increase weapon skill TP bonus by 100. 5/5 Affects your entire party, and synergizes well with many strong Weapon Skills. You will be expected to have this at 5/5.
Aggressive Aim Adds ranged accuracy bonus to Aggressor. Increase ranged accuracy bonus by 4. 0/5 Warrior does not utilize ranged attacks in any meaningful capacity. Even if it did, the accuracy boost is too minor to give up the other options.

Job-Specific Armor

Warrior's sets are quite interesting with the artifact armor buffing key job abilities and being great for the times you need a full accuracy set for TP. Relic is more expensive and also more niche option with the most potential for new/returning players that are looking to play with dual wield or Fencer builds, and empyrean is the odd one of the bunch, being not only incomplete at +1 instead of +3 but being generally not a preferred choice outside of macro pieces or ukonvasara use. That said this is just an opinion section and you should definitely make your own choices on what to upgrade and which pieces to focus on is entirely arguable depending on content you're doing or accessibility of other gear choices. If you literally have no idea what warrior is all about this could be a starting point to hit things (written mainly with a Great Axe in mind).

Artifact Armor - Pummeler's Armor Set +3
Worth making? Description Image Priority + Reasoning
Yes Pummeler's Mask +3 description.png Fourth. Head +3 icreases the duration of aggressor, while it is an important macro piece on precast when using the JA other pieces are used in actual TP sets/ws sets. You will want it but it won't change the job entirely at first. It's also great for a FULL accuracy set, when underbuffed or fighting something very evasive. Can also be used in a niche enmity set for provoke due to its enmity +12.
Yes Pumm. Lorica +3 description.png Third. This is the piece you want after your TP sets are sorted as it increases your WSD by 10% and boosts berserk's duration, it is a great piece again for a FULL accuracy set.
Yes Pumm. Mufflers +3 description.png Fifth. While the retaliation bonus is nice for a JA swap and it has the same benefits of the set for FULL accuracy sets, it's not an amazing piece and is barely used. Again usable in niche situations for enmity but not really a priority.
Yes Pumm. Cuisses +3 description.png First. This is a great TP piece and likely to be you first item to upgrade, the DA helps you reach 100% DA rate especially if not job master, the damage taken -5% is nice, and a solid piece all around. While there are alternatives it is a solid piece to chase first to get into the swing of things.
Yes Pumm. Calligae +3 description.png Second. The other part of your AF tp sets, again double attack +9% and also store tp+4 is a great tp piece, helps with accuracy, great stats. While there are alternatives it is one of the most impactful pieces.
Relic Armor - Agoge Armor Set +3
Worth making? Description Image Priority + Reasoning
Yes Agoge Mask +3 description.png First. Fantastic piece for enhancing Warcry in combination with merits. It's also used for dual wield/fencer weaponskills in some sets such as Savage Blade that is all the rage nowadays, or Cloudsplitter sets. Solid piece especially nowadays that everyone is using and abusing savage blade.
Yes Agoge Lorica +3 description.png Second. The aggressor enhancement both increases duration and reduces the evasion penalty, the merits AGI effect is unlikely to be of much consequence, but it's there. This is used nowadays to TP when dual wielding but it's not a super common occurrence. A solid piece
Maybe Agoge Mufflers +3 description.png Fourth. The defender enhancement is not really interesting but it is beneficial if you ever need to pop defender for any reason. It can be used in some niche sets for fencer builds when Fighter's Roll is active but I would not recommend to chase this too early as it's less usable than other pieces. If you only use a fencer build this shoots up in priority, obviously.
Maybe Agoge Cuisses +3 description.png Third. A nice double attack heavy piece used when fighting with a polearm like Shining One or some dual wield sets, depending how often you use those weapons this might be more important than others especially if you have your Pumm. Cuisses +3 already as they can be used as an alternative in those sets anyway.
Yes Agoge Calligae +3 description.png Fifth. Another nice macro piece to buff Berserk, and on a side bonus Tomahawk! Definitely usable as a macro piece but not really used much for TP or WS sets, it could be less relevant if you are doing more fencer/dual wield builds than great axe. The only reason it's this low is that all considered the other pieces can be better than it depending on situation
Empyrean Armor - Boii Armor Set +2
Worth making? Description Image Priority + Reasoning
Maybe Boii Mask +2 description.png Fifth. The entire set is great if you're using Ukonvasara for white damage, but this is not really that common and this piece is not exactly exciting. No special effects, just stats. It is usable but you should not prioritize it when starting out.
Yes Boii Lorica +2 description.png First. 36 More seconds to Blood Rage when worn on activation is pretty great, and while it's not really used for much else now, it is probably the best set piece of the empyrean +2.
Maybe Boii Mufflers +2 description.png Third. Buffing restraint sounds good and that's the entire reason to make this piece right now. The axe skill would be nice but this item is not really used nowadays.
Maybe Boii Cuisses +2 description.png Fourth. Fencer +3 sounds great! Except the item has been around for a while and no builds really use it, worth doing for the future +2/+3 upgrades but not when starting out with very limited resources.
Yes Boii Calligae +2 description.png Second. Boosting Critical Hit Damage by 12% during Mighty Strikes can be useful. +28% damage for Retaliation if worn while retailiating most likely won't be relevant in very high end content. When soloing/tanking as a warrior in lowman content it can be useful, nothing to write home about but a usable piece. If you pull hate and do more damage on content that needs a real tank, either you're in a hybrid/dt set and hoping to finish off the boss, or this isn't helping you shed off hate.

Weapons

Warrior can use a wide variety of weapon types quite well, allowing you to take advantage of an enemy's weakness and work around their strengths. While leveling, stick to Great Axes and just try to upgrade your weapon every 5-10 levels to increase your DPS. We'll be focusing on gear for level 99 and beyond in this guide.

Great Axes

The Great Axe is Warrior's bread and butter. It is your primary weapon when skillchaining matters and also features the Break line of weaponskills that weaken the enemy.

Eminent Voulge icon.png Eminent VoulgeEminent Voulge description.png - Babby's first Great Axe if you haven't been to Adoulin yet, otherwise skip to a weapon below. Purchased from a Sparks NPC.

Home. Labrys icon.png Homestead LabrysHome. Labrys description.png - Newer players only. As soon as you can raise enough Bayld and get to Adoulin, make your way to the Peacekeepers' Coalition in Eastern Adoulin where Craggy Bluff is to buy this. You can convert previously gained Copper Vouchers to at least 3,000 Bayld in order to buy this swiftly. You probably want some of the Gorney_Armor_Set_+1 from Vesca as well, so raise 12,100 Bayld if this applies to you.

Minos icon.png MinosMinos description.png - Obtained from Oboro and will require some resources to put together and augment, where it becomes a more significant upgrade from the Homestead Labrys. It is entirely possible (and preferable) to skip this one by doing lower tier Ambuscade or qualifying to use the Hepatizon Axe, but I'll leave it here for the time being for those operating at a different pace.

Voluspa Chopper icon.png Voluspa ChopperVoluspa Chopper description.png - If you started collecting Domain Points from Domain Invasion, this is an easy iLvl 119 Great Axe. An added bonus is Volupsa Chopper gains large stat increases during Domain Invasion. Cost: 80 Domain Points from Zurim.

Hepatizon Axe icon.png Hepatizon AxeHepatizon Axe description.png - If you have more Job Points than you know what to do with, but have yet somehow avoided Ambuscade, this or the HQ version of it is a nice pick up until you advance through some of the Lycurgos stages. Note that this is a su2 piece of equipment, which requires 100 Job Points spent for Warrior.

Lycurgos icon.png LycurgosLycurgos description.png - More established players can start here. The final form of the Ambuscade Great Axe. Note that you can probably upgrade from the an earlier weapon once it's this weapon is at Ajja Chopper stage. At the time of this writing, you can use this Great Axe until you make one of the two options below.

Chango icon.png ChangoChango description.png - The Aeonic Great Axe that unlocks the ability to perform Ultimate Skillchains. This will require grouping with others for some more difficult content, which might even require you leveling additional jobs to partake in. If you have access to the help, a great weapon to work on as an upgrade from your Lycurgos.

Ukonvasara (Level 80) icon.png Ukonvasara (Level 119 III)Ukonvasara (Level 119 III) description.png - The Empyrean Great Axe is a white damage beast. Making this weapon will require accumulating more resources over a large number of stages, but a person with fewer connections with others could work on this more easily over time.

The other Great Axe Ultimate Weapons

Bravura (Level 119 III) icon.png Bravura (Level 119 III)Bravura (Level 119 III) description.png - Most of the Relic Weapons are lagging behind at the time of this writing. Hopefully something is done with them eventually.

Conqueror (Level 119 III) icon.png Conqueror (Level 119 III)Conqueror (Level 119 III) description.png - The Mythic Great Axe. Not worth the effort at this time either.

Great Swords

Great Swords were once the "me too!" Bandwagon Warriors' weapon of choice for zerging, but Resolution has been outshined by a new hotness. Good.

Regardless, Resolution is still a perfectly fine weapon skill and Shockwave enables a Warrior to land Sleep on a group of mobs themselves. Useful for some scenarios.

Montante +1 icon.png Montante +1Montante +1 description.png - Obtained from the Unity Concord NM Sarama, which you'll need some help with. A fantastic Great Sword that saw a life extension thanks to augmenting through Lustreless Wings. If you already have this one from earlier, you may consider sticking with it augmented rather than making the next option.

Nandaka icon.png NandakaNandaka description.png - The final form of the Ambuscade Great Sword. I'd imagine these days, most Warriors will just start with this line of Great Swords when expanding their armory.

Swords

Sword-and-board Warrior has come back in style -- it's not just for newbies in the Dunes anymore!

Thanks to Warrior's Fencer trait and some relatively newer gear, Savage Blade is the new defacto Warrior weaponskill of choice for mindless zerging with others. Swords should only be used when skillchaining doesn't matter.

Naegling icon.png NaeglingNaegling description.png - The final form of the Ambuscade Sword. As of the time of this writing, this is basically a must have for Warriors at this point and really the only sword you need for now. The Kaja Sword and earlier stages of the weapon will do fine as you work towards it, but the boost to Savage Blade doesn't kick in until the Kaja Sword.

Dual Wield option(s):

Sangarius +1 icon.png Sangarius +1Sangarius +1 description.png - A weapon introduced with Unity Wanted fights from [Lumbering Jill]]. Updated with augmented stats (DMG +35, Accuracy & Magic Accuracy +30 , and Quadruple Attack +3%) making it a fun offhand option.

Zantetsuken icon.png ZantetsukenZantetsuken description.png - The better version of an augmented Sangarius +1. Your mileage may vary on droprate as it obtained as a chance droprate from Odin Prime High Tier Mission Battle, via a Stygian Pact phantom gem.

Axes

Remember Axes? Warrior can use them, and use them well! They don't get a lot of press these days, though.

Dolichenus icon.png DolichenusDolichenus description.png - The final form of the Ambuscade Axe. Like the other Ambuscade weapons, you get a boost to a weapon skill starting at the Kaja stage. Some very respectable numbers can be seen from Decimation using it.

Dual Wield option(s):

Barbarity icon.png BarbarityBarbarity description.png / Barbarity icon.png Barbarity +1Barbarity +1 description.png - Warrior's Superior 2 (SU2) weapon. Sporting a rather large increase in HP, STR, Attack as well as Weapon Skill Damage +5/+8, makes for a great companion weapon for big-hitter one-hit weapon skills. Craftable & purchasable on the Auction House.

Renaud's Axe +2 icon.png Renaud's Axe +2Renaud's Axe +2 description.png / Fernagu icon.png FernaguFernagu description.png - A relic (pun not intended) of the pre-Adoulin, level cap 99 days courtesy of the Trial of the Magians upgrading & augmenting system. Where it fall short in base damage and accuracy, if you follow the correct upgrade path, you gain a massive TP Bonus +1,000. Essentially closing the gap between a single wield Fencer build and a Dual Wield build.

Polearms

A Warrior's best piercing weapon choice.

Shining One icon.png Shining OneShining One description.png - The final form of the Ambuscade Polearm. Like the other Ambuscade weapons, you get a boost to a weaponskill starting at the Kaja stage. You'll want one of these in your toolkit, especially if doing Odyssey.

Clubs

Clubs provide a source of Blunt damage for Warriors.

Loxotic Mace +1 icon.png Loxotic Mace +1Loxotic Mace +1 description.png - Obtained from the Unity Concord NM Grand Grenade. This can be augmented through the Odyssey item Lustreless Hides. Fully Augmented, Loxotic Mace +1 sports an additional DMG +33, Accuracy & Magic Accuracy +40, and Weapon Skill Damage +10%. With this Mace, you're capable of putting out some really nice numbers through Judgement or Black Halo. Part of a Warrior's expected toolkit for Odyssey, allowing you to beat down the Undead and other slashing resistant monsters. When /DRG and doing any Slashing-resistant monsters, just swap from Naegling to this.

Ranged

Sometimes Provoke is down or should be saved. Sometimes you need the distance so you can thin the mob herd a little. Sometimes you want to pull a mob while waiting for buffs to finish being setup.

Dart icon.png DartDart description.png - An under-appreciated hero. Darts are cheap and fast, but what makes them great is you can swap to a Dart from any other ammo slot piece and not lose TP. There's really no reason to not carry a stack of these and be able to use them when the need arises.

Thr. Tomahawk icon.png Throwing TomahawkThr. Tomahawk description.png - Necessary to utilize the merited Tomahawk ability. Don't leave them in the Mog House and feel like a goober the rare times you can utilize it.

  • This, or something close to it, should be your basic Idle set at end game. This set provides more than capped DT, plenty of HP, and a lot of Magic Evasion, MDB, and magical resistance... and 2 HP/tick Regen because why not. This is a great set for running around in a place like Odyssey where you can be enfeebled.
  • Note that when you switch to and from your engaged set, you should not be dipping into yellow HP and risking HP aggro from Undead mobs. With whatever you choose to wear, it is something to keep in mind for content like Odyssey.
  • For your movement set, the ideal swap is to swap Shneddick Ring in for the Chirich Ring +1. No, really. You can't wear Hermes' Sandals and pretend you aren't making yourself much more vulnerable when you're dropping all of the defensive stats of Sakpata's Leggings to put on level 70 feet that only provide 12% movement speed and minimal stats. This drops you down over 100 DEF, 150 Magic Evasion, and 6% DT. Yikes.
  • Here we have many of the same pieces as the DT/Meva set, with just a few swaps. We're less concerned about getting hit with enfeebles and other magic and this is just for idling or running around in a safe area.
  • The Apeile Rings you should probably have for your Enmity set already. The Apeile Rings will only start working when your HP is below 70%. The easily obtainable Sanctity Necklace can help you get back into white HP and provides a small bit of missing HP, with the Etoilation providing most of the rest.
  • Other possible swaps are pieces of Volte Haubert armor that might never seem to drop for you and even a conditional Lycopodium Sash for 3HP/tick during daytime. It's possible to pump Regen up a lot more but try to keep in mind what your base HP is in your standard sets and don't make yourself too soft in case something unexpected happens.

  • As soon as you can raise enough Bayld, make your way to the Peacekeepers' Coalition in Eastern Adoulin where Vesca is to buy the Gorney Armor Set +1. You can convert previously gained Copper Vouchers to at least 12,100 Bayld in order to buy the whole set along with a Homestead Labrys from Craggy Bluff near him. Unless you're getting a free ride from friends to better gear, do it without thinking about it. These items will set you at i119, improving your effectiveness as well as your trusts.
  • At that point, you'll be able to get your Reforged Artifact Armor swiftly by getting the Kupon_I-AF109 from doing the Repelling an Ambuscade Records of Eminence->Intermediate quest. Simply do a Very Easy Volume 2 Ambuscade and clear it. This would be 109 level content, something a strapping young i119 Warrior like yourself can definitely manage.
  • You've over-capping Haste here and that's... okay. Waist alternatives include: Cetl Belt, Sweordfaetels, Dynamic Belt, and Headlong Belt. Probably in that order of desirability. Get whatever you can afford. The Ioskeha Belt or it's HQ counterpart will serve you for a long time, so get it when you can.
  • This is the bare minimum you should strive for to do simple things with absolute strangers like lower difficulty Ambuscade, Domain Invasion, Geas Fete NMs, HTBFs, some higher level Unity NMs, and more. A lot of shout groups may snub you at this stage of your development if you try to join their runs, don't take it personal, just keep moving forward.
  • The Hervor Haubert set is a very easy to get new baseline of gear to give you a boost. It's not impressive at all, but you can basically earn up to 2 pieces a day by just showing up and beating on stuff in Domain Invasion. The set has more accuracy than your AF+1 119 pieces, so they're definitely useful swaps when necessary. When you don't need the accuracy, the Double Attack bonuses are better.
  • Get ready to spam a lot of Ambuscade, hopefully mostly with others. +2 your Flamma and Sulevia as you go along. The Flamma head's pretty great, as are the Sulevia hands and feet. You'll probably be using both for a while.
  • At this point, you can start doing more content with others with reasonable expectations. Don't burn out and try a bit of everything. Start looking into ways to farm gil, because you'll need a lot of it soon.

  • At this point, you're ready to do Omen and other more recent content. Accuracy needs vary wildly here depending on event and target, so keep an eye on it or a parse running. Especially when you don't have quality buffs. Realize it's possible you may end up having to level another job to do some of this content. It's the price to pay to advance further sometimes.
  • You may start experiencing some real sticker shock at the expenses required to start buying new gear or continue to upgrade your existing gear. It definitely starts to hurt here and many casual players will slowly work their way to this point and not get much further. Progress will start to slow down as your gear improves and that's okay. Don't pull out papa's plastic just to try to rush it. That's just pathetic.
  • Valorous Mail should have 5 Double Attack here and hopefully a decent bit of Accuracy and Attack. This should provide you with a 5-hit build and ton of Double Attack altogether.
  • Some options to swap in. Pick and choose as needed.

  • Shove all of the STR and Weapon Skill Damage gear you have available into your set.
  • R20+ Nyame alternatives: Augmented Odyssean/Valorous with high WSD, Sakpata's.
  • Ring alternatives: Karieyh Ring +1 if you really must choose that for an SoA ring will outperform anything but the Epaminondas's Ring, so pair them. Niqmaddu Ring if you lack the Epaminondas's Ring.
  • Load up on Magic Accuracy to fight the chance of a resist.
  • Newer WARs will want to use Flamma Armor Set. If you don't have an augmented Metamor. Ring +1, another Stikini Ring will do fine. Sanctity Necklace isn't too far of a drop.
  • Feel free to make and use a cape with Magic Accuracy, but WAR will find little use for it otherwise.
  • Lycurgos gets a large 30% boost to Steel Cyclone, so use it if you're using the weaponskill more than a few times, like when you're opening/closing for Darkness.

Sword Weaponskill Sets

Savage Blade

Savage Blade is the current weaponskill of choice for pure zerging with other melee when skillchaining doesn't matter or might be detrimental (like when skillchain elements can heal the target). This is largely in part thanks to the overpowered Ambuscade Sword weapon, with Naegling being it's final form. Most front-line jobs can spam Savage Blade without a care currently and contribute fairly well. Warrior, with access to it's job abilities and SP, does this very well.

  • Struggled a bit here with how beginner-friendly to go and what to include. If anyone has recommendations that are easier for a newer WAR, feel free to make edits.
  • Agoge Mask +2 is a great boost here, even more so when you can take it to +3. Can use Flam. Zucchetto +2 probably until you get it.

  • You'll want some Potency in that Provoke sometimes!
  • Any piece of Souveran Armor Set +1 augmented with Path C if you have it are great sources of enmity if you lack any of the above (or can't be bothered to carry it if otherwise not using it). Also nice because it may counter any large HP dips you'd get otherwise here. Find a good balance for your situation.
  • Emet Harness +1, Unmoving Collar +1 are some decent alternatives.
  • Since so much of this would be or has random augments, you'll have to really do the best you can here and make your own decisions. I strongly advise you read up on Fast Cast.
  • Odyssean pieces can be augmented with up to Fast Cast +6 on them with Fern Stones.
  • Use Magoraga Beads for Utsusemi.
  • Balancing HP loss and Fast Cast is going to be difficult, make swaps where you feel appropriate. Etiolation Earring might be better off here.
  • Feet only worthwhile with max augment values, otherwise stick with Nyame if that's all you really have.

Trusts

A quick note on some recommended trusts for leveling and general purpose solo play. When you are by yourself, you should be doing enough damage that most of the time you will be the de-facto tank. So we want to lean heavily on healers and support trusts that boost your DPS and keep you alive. For standard gameplay, the following easily obtainable trusts are recommended:

  • Apururu or Yoran-Oran unity as healer
  • Koru-Moru (gives Haste, Phalanx II, Refreshes healer, Dispels and enfeebles mobs)
  • Ulmia and Joachim (these two BRDs will generally provided double Marches along with Minuet, Madrigal, and Ballads as needed)
  • Qultada or Mayakov

Occasionally, your battle target may be a mob that does a devastating single-target TP move (instant KO, Charm, etc.). That's when you want to call a tank trust and let them eat them, holding back your DPS enough for them to keep hate most of the time.
