Drakel Warlord Class Breakdown

Warriors, come out to play!

Drakel Warlords are kings of the arena. Using their brute strength and earned combat prowess they can dish out intimidating damage while fending off bevies of physical attacks. That's wny Pax the Warlord's Class Variant is based on the Warrior Class!

How to get the class

The Drakel Warlord Class is available from the Class shop in Battleon for either 2000 AdventureCoins OR 100,000 gold if you have a membership in AQWorlds!*

Class Information

  • This class has a LOT of defensive stats and a focus on crit damage. 
  • Drakel Warlords are the masters of single target focused combat. 
  • In PvP this class is very strong vs other physical damage classes but its lack of magic resistance makes it vulnerable to classes that focus on spell damage. 
  • Since, at the moment, all monsters do physical damage, Drakel Warlords can tank very well in PvE scenarios. 
  • Their lack of AoE (outside of an AoE stun) means they aren’t the quickest farming class but their high defenses and decent heal mean they can keep going for days.
  • Random fact: the head of our Class Designer group (Arklen) has been running around for the last week challenging random testers to fight him. "PvP me, bro? C'mooooonnnnn...."

* The next Throne of Darkness Class variant will be for ALL players, and will requre rank 10 of the 4D Pyramid faction rep!

Drakel Auto Attack

A Drakel special auto attack that deals 150% damage.

  • Type: Physical
  • Mana Cost: 0
  • Cooldown: 2 seconds
  • Damage: 150%

Notes: We wanted to keep the Warlord’s abilities heavy and hard hitting. The bonus damage on this auto means it’s crits are even bigger.       

Strengthened Strike:

Tap into your Warlord strength to deal 200% attack damage and intimidate your foe, reducing any physical damage they deal by 7% for 10 seconds, stacking up to 5.

  • Type: Physical       
  • ManaCost: 15       
  • Cooldown: 3 seconds       
  • AoE: 1 Range:
  • Melee Damage: 200%

Notes: Your bread and butter spam skill. You get this at early ranks to help both your offense and defense. This skill is a mana trap if you’re not careful. The 10 second duration on the debuff means you don’t need to spam it constantly to keep Intimidation up.

Raged Strike

You rage at everyone around you. Stuns up to 3 targets for 3 seconds. Your boiling blood heals your wounds, applying a HoT for 15 seconds.

  • Type: Physical       
  • ManaCost: 20       
  • Cooldown: 20 seconds       
  • AoE: 3 Range:
  • MeleeDam: 0%

Notes: AoE stun and sustain. As long as this doesn’t miss, it’ll keep you alive in just about any situation (barring DoTs maybe). You probably won’t be taking damage while you’re stunned so it’s a guaranteed bit of healing until the stun wears off. Combo this with Strike of Expertise and you shouldn’t have any trouble finishing your foe off.

Strike of Expertise

Warlord’s experience on the battlefield allow them to position themselves to perfectly land attacks. Applies Prepared Strike, making any autos done in the next 5 seconds always hit and crit.

  • ManaCost: 18       
  • Cooldown: 15 seconds

Notes: Critting on a 150% auto twice is pretty huge, especially with your crit damage buff on your passive. Use this in combination with your stun to guarantee the damage.

Enter the Arena

Challenge your opponent! Deals 100% damage and applies ‘Master of the Arena’ taking 50% less physical damage for 15 seconds. 

  • Type: Physical       
  • ManaCost: 30       
  • Cooldown: 25 seconds       
  • AoE: 1 Range: AllDam: 100%

Notes: Helps targeting in pvp! Really though, this skill is the reason you dominate in 1v1 combat. Your 30% physical damage reduction passive plus Enter the Arena means you have capped out your physical damage resistance to the maximum (80%) for 15 seconds! This can be up 15 out of every 25 seconds which is 60% of the time (isn’t math cool)!

Passive 1: Expertise: Increase critical damage by 15%

Passive 2: Warlord’s Respect: All physical damage taken reduced by 30%

Passive 3: Drakel Skin: Increase END by 20%
