Warlords are veteran fighters who somehow haven't died yet and don't plan to do so any time soon. With the right balance of skill, courage and experience, these fearsome warriors can live through just about anything.

Class Features

Note: Class trait: COURAGEOUS COURAGEOUS trait grants you +30% attack bonus and reduces the resistances (both physical and magical) of the target of your next attack. This is identical to the effect of the Glyph: BYSSEPS BYSSEPS glyph.



Warlords love their Glyph: CYDSTEPP CYDSTEPP glyph, but its high mana cost means they usually can only cast it one time during battle. With the expanded pool of an Class: Warlord Elf Warlord, casting it one extra time is completely feasible. This also gives him more leeway to leverage utility glyphs in his attack routine. With the help of God: Mystera Annur Mystera Annur he may even be able to use Glyph: CYDSTEPP CYDSTEPP three times per battle.


Warlords get a bonus to their attack damage when they use mana potions, and gnomes have lots of mana potions. If there ever was an obvious combo, Class: Warlord Gnome Warlord is it. You will likely want to utilize God: Jehora Jeheyu Jehora Jeheyu with this particular combo, as raising your max mana will take top priority.


Like the human, the Class: Warlord Orc Warlord offers expanded damage output for a class that puts a lot of emphasis on physical attack power. Orcs will have a stronger early-game than humans, and with proper preparations will continue to outshine them even at high levels. Class: Warlord Human Warlord is still viable when playing purist, but only on dungeons which feature a focus on high-level combat (such as Dungeon: Naga City Naga City). Orcs otherwise revel in the attack bonus boosts from this class.


The Warlord is one of the most powerful physical combat specialists in the game. By chaining repeated death protections, the Warlord can edge in up to three extra hits over other classes, taking down monsters powerful enough to be considered untouchable to other classes. Low hit point monsters such as Monster: Gorgon Gorgon, Monster: Goat Goat, and Monster: Warlock Warlock are the favoured prey of Warlords, who can level up extremely quickly from defeating higher-level monsters.

Warlords need to focus heavily on their offensive damage output, relying on Glyph: CYDSTEPP CYDSTEPP to protect them from overwhelming enemy attacks. A Warlord can never have enough attack damage, and due to Class trait: DEFIANT DEFIANT hit points matter little so long as he can just barely survive one attack. As a result, using preparations such as the extra attack boosts is a very good idea, and purchasing items such as the Item: Trisword Trisword or Item: Fine Sword Fine Sword to boost your base attack are very useful.

For race selection, the Human, Orc, Elf, and Gnome all make excellent choices for the Warlord. Humans and Orcs boost their attack damage, which Warlords desperately want. With their larger mana pool, an Elf can increase the number of consecutive death protections a Warlord can gain in battle without having to use potions. The Gnome allows the Warlord to benefit from Class trait: COURAGEOUS COURAGEOUS trait from mana potions more frequently, although you will probably want to find a way to increase your maximum mana.


Warlords benefit enormously from worshipping God: Glowing Guardian Glowing Guardian, God: Jehora Jeheyu Jehora Jeheyu and God: Mystera Annur Mystera Annur. He also benefits enormously from the boons of God: Tikki Tooki Tikki Tooki, but may have trouble keeping his piety above zero with that deity. God: The Earthmother The Earthmother is also a good choice, especially as a late-game conversion: God boon: Clearance Clearance can be used several times, each time granting just enough mana to recast Glyph: CYDSTEPP CYDSTEPP.
