Warrior is the right class if you plan to play the tank role within groups in Arcane Legends. This is because two main stats and several active skills make them strong enough to resist multiple mob attacks and boss hits like no other class in the game. A high health bar along with high defenses, when combined with the proper gear, weapons and pets, make them unbeatable.
The two main warrior builds are focused around tanking, even though one of them tries to put more emphasis on DPS, specially good if you consider you will be dealing with lots of players who have no idea of how to DPS properly and also won’t let you keep the aggro of mobs and bosses only on you
