Ashes 101 Ashes of Creation Fighter


While technically Intrepid Studios has not showcased the Fighter, they did do a melee combat showcase using one of the Fighter Archetype Classes the Weapon Master. That video is linked to the right. As a note, Intrepid did not do a very good job of detailing out the tab-targeting version of melee combat in this video. Intrepid/Steven did later make a text post detailing out that while the melee combat show case looks very action combat oriented, that the game is still a tab/action hybrid.

Role of a Fighter

The fighter is a physical damage dealer with high levels of mobility. They are designed to have a lot of gap closers, to stay up in your face during combat. They are designed to have multitude of ways to deal damage, burst damage, bleed damage, backstab damage. In addition to their mobility, they will have some amount of CC/Snares to hold their targets in place.


We still know very little about the Fighter basic skill kit. These examples are the ones that were found in the Fighter showcase video.
