Warrior Build Guide

The Warrior build in Enshrouded is a marital weapon damage dealer that focuses on damage from multiple weapon types. What makes the Warrior unique is that it can be effective with one hand and shield, two-handed weapons, or a ranged bow. This gives the build a versatile approach to destroying enemies while retaining the tough, rugged, and brutal damage dealer.

Before progressing with our Best Enshrouded Warrior Build, your character creation will not impact gameplay. There are no racial passives, ability scores, or attributes to consider. Thus, we advise you to select a character whose appearance resonates with you.

Weapon Choices

Rotblood Mace in Enshrouded Game
Wildwood Shortbow in Enshrouded Game

The Warrior build in Enshrouded uses a one-handed melee mace and a bow for weapon choices. Below is a list of all the weapons we recommend using with this Warrior build, and when you should use them:

  • One-Hand and Shield – this combination is optimal for moderate damage but defensive capabilities. The weapons will swing fast, and you can block. However, you won’t have the maximum amount of damage that two-handed or bow possess. Use one hand and shield when you expect pressure or enemy incoming attacks.
  • Two-Handed Melee – chose this weapon when wanting to double jump or increase overall damage. You can use the double-jump combo and avoid incoming damage with dodge or blink. However, you won’t have the defensive capability when handling pressure so switch to a weapon with a shield.
  • Bow – the best overall damage at range when you sneak up on enemies from the rear to hit backstab. The best part of the bow is the damage can be high without a high investment in dexterity attributes. The downside is, that you won’t have a shield and require constant consumable arrows for optimal damage.
  • Unarmed – After you unlock the Begone skill, you can knock enemies back and stun them when unarmed. To do this, simply put a crafting material on one slot on your bar. Swap to that, which will still allow you to block with a shield, and punch to stun an enemy. This is a great crowd-control method with almost zero damage.

Arrows

The best arrows for the Warriror build are Exploding arrows, Shroud arrows, and Stun arrows. Exploding arrows provide area burst fire damage useful for multi-target fights. Shroud arrows do damage over time, though are not effective in the shrouded areas. Stun arrows subdue enemies and allow you to do melee damage.

The Hunter Craftsperson unlocks the ability to craft arrows and special arrows. When you first start, Wooden Arrows are your best option which can be crafted in your manual crafting menu using Twigs. As you explore more areas, and unlock more metals and materials, the Hunter provides better arrows. These typically do more damage or add small amounts of poison damage.

Survival

Battle Heal

The Battle Heal skill is the best ability for surviving with the Warrior build. Battle heal skill rewards you for critical strikes, giving you healing based on your health pool. Thus, constitution and increasing it allows for greater healing within the need for potions or retreating. At max level, you can reach 20 constitution and 18 strength depending on your consumables, gear, and skills. Your overall health pool will be around 1400 or more, giving you a massive amount of health to aid in survival.

Unlike other builds like the Wizard or Ranger, you must continue to attack to trigger Battle Heal for high survivability. We select this skill early in the game, but you can expect a slow start until unlocked. We avoid taking the Merciless Attack skill because of its unreliability and delayed animation. Combine the melee battle heal with high health recovery and potions for great survivability.

Best Warrior Attributes & Combat Stats

Warrior Attributes and Stats for Enshrouded Game

The best attribute for a Warrior build is Strength because it increases melee damage by 5% per attribute point.  The secondary most important is the Constitution which gives you 50 health per attribute point.  Lastly, Dexterity will help increase range damage with the bow. However, you can gain a few skills in the Ranger tree that will drastically improve your overall bow damage without the need for high-skill point investment. Thus, we recommend the bulk of your skill points be invested into strength and constitution attributes.

Warrior Gameplay & Tips

The best tip to play the Warrior build is to use a one-handed shield weapon attacking from the flank to keep damage and healing high while blocking when needing defensive. You can make additional weapon choices for the situation based on your needs. The main emphasis of the Warrior is being excellent at 3 weapons, all with unique pros and cons. Below are some other gameplay tips when playing the best Warrior build in the Enshrouded game:

  • Survival – staying alive by having high mobility, attacking with battle heal, and using potions when needing a burst to heal. Always attack from sneak or the flank if possible and avoid front-facing damage. Crowd control enemies with unarmed punches or stun arrows to keep incoming damage low.
  • Damage – start combat from the rear with a bow and a high-damage arrow if possible. From this point, swap to aggressive two-handed with area damage via double jump or one-hand and shield for defensive capabilities.
  • Range Bow – the bow is helpful because you can do a lot of damage by landing headshots, or backstab from the rear. Use a bow for medium to long-range combat and swap when incoming damage is likely.
  • Mobility – use a combination of Blink and Evasion Attack to move in and outside the enemy target range.
