How We Roll Winner
Honestly speaking, I feel that the base classes are one of the strongest classes, especially Warrior Armor.
There's a mix of all kinds of skills in there, basically, a complete package.
While I agree that the animations can get a bit boring from time to time and the defense might not be up to mark, but hey, every class has its downsides. The offense, nonetheless is really rock solid in every way. And as the saying goes, 'A Good Offense is the Best Defense'.
So, strong, good-for-emergencies, easy-on-mana and trustworthy at the end of the day, that's the Warrior Armor.
