Legends of Idleon Warrior Build Guide
Learn the best Warrior build to progress in Idleon with this guide to the Warrior class that ensures you have the appropriate talents for your progression through W1 and beyond. Specialising in physical damage the Warrior is also one of the best starting characters you can create with their high health pool, mining abilities and area of effect attacks with their spear weapon type. Whether it’s your first character or your eighth the talent point investment guide here will help you build a damage focused Warrior.
This guide is focused on creating a Warrior for your early game advance through W1 and W2 until your promotion to either a Barbarian or Squire. If you’re looking to turn your Warrior into a dedicated miner which is their speciality then refer to our mining build guide instead. If you need build help for your other characters refer to our Journeyman, Mage or Archer build guides.
Idleon Warrior Build
Building a Warrior like the other classes in Idleon relies heavily on meeting minimum accuracy requirements to fight your desired enemy and then following this up with damage. For the Warrior this means gaining wisdom (WIS) which boosts their accuracy stat and pairing it with as much strength (STR) and weapon power as possible. The Warrior can also gain damage by increasing their maximum HP depending on the talent skill build point allocation. In terms of talents though you’ll be investing predominately into weapon power to maximise your early game gains.
Given all the mechanics of Idleon the most effective per point talent build may regularly change on your account as various game systems change the optimal path. Once you reach W2 in particular it can be difficult for a generalist Warrior build guide like this to give you the most efficient skill point option at every character level. It does however provide a set of simple to follow rules for your Warrior build that will give you the best result in most situations. If you’re confident in diving deeper into Idleon mechanics then you should test what is giving you the best damage regularly by spending single points and referring to the impact on your player stats window.
Tab 1 skills for your Warrior build should be considered as follows:
- Book Of The Wise: Your key to gaining significant accuracy you’ll want as many points in here as necessary for your current goal. For new player accounts reaching the mid level 40s in this talent by the time you hit the first boss is a good initial goal which will be somewhere between character level 30 or 35 depending on the speed of your progression. Invest these point slowly overtime as you move through the W1 maps though to ensure you don’t overinvest in accuracy at the cost of damage.
- Sharpened Axe: A skill you’ll eventually want to max out at higher levels given its boost to weapon power that it provides that is a core source of damage. Given this is base damage though its effectiveness starts to drop off at higher levels in comparison to other sources of damage from talent points that are % based (Meat Shank and Gilded Sword). For this reason a good stopping point is between level 40 to 50.
- Meat Shank: Meat Shank provides a larger % damage boost than Gilded Sword during its early levels so should be prioritised. Up until level 10 you’ll gain more than 1% damage while Gilded Sword is always a fixed 1% that allows for some minor min-max gains. Even beyond level 10 this talent will often give you slightly more damage as its effectiveness is based on your health pool that constantly grows. As a simple rule though I’d recommended 10 points and then moving onto Gilded Sword given the minor differences between the two beyond that point. Diligent players though can use the stat provided in the talent window for this skill to determine if its more effective on a per point basis for every skill point you spend.
- Gilded Sword: With Sharpened Axe and Meat Shank at an appropriate level as detailed above it’s time to start investing in the percentage based damage boost of Gilded Sword up to around level 50. From this point you’ll want to experiment between Sharpened Axe, Gilded Sword and Meat Shank in this talent tab to see what is giving you the best gains. This maybe impacted by your choice of subclass but ultimately you’ll be looking to max them all so placing points into them evenly can be an easy default option.
Tab 2 skills for your Warrior build should be considered as follows:
- Power Strike: 1 point as soon as you advance to a Warrior subclass and placed on your active bar as this will be a large boost in your damage when playing active or AFK. You’ll eventually return to invest more points but a single talent is sufficient to begin.
- Whirl: Similar to above a single point for now with further points likely only required after your next character class advancement to Barbarian or Squire depending how fast you progress.
- Firmly Grasp: Similar to the above skills with 1 point you’ll dramatically boost your damage given a single point is worth a total of 16 STR meaning it has high efficiency. This is a great one point wonder in Idleon and you’ll place only a single point here.
- Double Strike: Similar to others listed above this is a good single talent point option bringing a damage boost in both active and AFK styles of play. After you max Carry A Big Stick (below) I recommend you return to this skill and invest around 40 points and then focus on your active skills up to around the same level. Beyond that you’ll need to experiment with what is providing the most gains.
- Carry A Big Stick: The staple of the tab 2 skill tree you’ll want to invest all your points here for the large weapon power boost after achieving the 1 point spend in all the above skills.
