The Warrior is a role that appears in SlashTHEM. They are a pure fighting-class similar to the Knight, and can be clockwork automata, doppelgänger, dwarves, elves, giant, gnomes, hobbits, human, incantifiers, or kobolds.

The Warrior quest sees you fighting Archnemesis for The Magic Mirror of Jason.

The Warrior's starting pet is a pony that starts out with a saddle. Just like the Knight, a Warrior's riding skill starts out Basic, allowing the player to pick up items while riding.

The Warrior is a combat-oriented role. His high physical stats allow him to fight in melee most of the time while also allowing him to use a variety of ranged weapons. However, the complete lack of any spellcasting skills means the Warrior will have difficulty casting higher-level spells. They also don't get a lot of useful intrinsics or techniques by leveling up.

The Warrior's quest artifact, The Magic Mirror of Jason, is extremely hard to obtain thanks to the quest nemesis' difficulty; basically, the quest forces the Warrior to fight a beefed-up version of Master Kaen.

Being a drow can aid in the Warrior's melee fighting abilities, and a vampire Warrior can deal extra damage by feeding on enemies.


The Warrior is based on the Gauntlet role with the same name. If the Warrior is weak from hunger, the game will display "Warrior needs food, badly!", which is a reference to Gauntlet's low health warning.
