Warriors were akin to fighters although they received less training.[2]


These soldiers were common throughout the Realms, either self-taught or trained en-masse as part of an army or other military force. Warriors could be found among any civilization and even in uncivilized areas.



2nd editionEdit

The Warrior class was introduced in 2nd edition (AD&D) as a generic class with three specific subclasses: Fighter, Paladin, and Ranger.[3][4]

3rd editionEdit

The Warrior class was also the name given to an NPC class in 3rd edition.[5]
