Warrior vs Paladin?

Post by Krunchyfrogg » Fri Sep 06, 2019 2:02 pm

What does the warrior do that the Paladin can not?

I’m brand new to this game and I’m trying to plan out my “perfect” party. I’m trying to see what each class does.

Since both of these fit the “up front tank/muscle” role, I’m wondering what each’s Strengths and weaknesses are.

Thank you.

They are almost identical at first. As they progress, each will develop differently.

The Paladin, as you probably know, offers some spells, including one that will improve your entire party's armor class and THAC0. Those benefits get better each time the Paladin goes up 5 levels. Very useful.

The fighter has no spells, and is strictly a brawler. However, his or her brawling ability gets better faster and my recollection is that they can use more armor and weapons. But there isn't a huge advantage.

My party usually has both a paladin and a warrior, along with a bard, a rogue, a monk, and two magic users. Others swear by the hunter and drop the warrior. Still others go magic heavy and use three magic users. You can also go with just 6 (or even 5) characters. Each has advantages and disadvantages.

Thank you for your clear answer.

I also see that there are more classes in the guide book than are available for me to choose at the beginning.

Is this a lot like the old Bards Tale games where characters can change classes as they advance?

Yes, exactly! Your mages will advance from Magician to Conjurer (or vice versa), then Sorcerer to Wizard (or vice versa) and finally Archmage. You have to progress to at least level 13 to advance to the next class.

There is also Dragoncaller, which is available only if you buy the expansion and only after you have finished the original game. Magic users cannot become Dragoncallers. The expansion also includes alchemy, but that is a skill anyone can learn.

P.S. the crunchy frog was much better than the spring surprise! :)

How do I know if I have the expansion or not? I bought this app years ago and never actually played it.

On your settings screen , a "+" will be displayed next to the version number IF you have the expansion (enabled).

e.g.

Silversword Modern (2.73+) Settings
