Do enemies not fall quickly enough for your taste? Prefer that enemies bend to your will? Then, the Great Weapon Fighter is the class for you! Play as one in Neverwinter, our upcoming Dungeons & Dragons action MMORPG, and take on Valindra Shadowmantle to protect Faerûn from harm.
Ready for the next challenge
The Great Weapon Fighter needs no tricks or illusions in combat, only the sharpest two-handed weapon to end an encounter. With a never-ending thirst for combat, the Great Weapon Fighter charges into battle any given opportunity – recklessly at times. Similar to other classes like the Trickster Rogue or Guardian Fighter, the timing of your attacks is essential for any combat situation.
A heroine leads the charge
To initiate combat, veterans can lead with Avalanche of Steel or Mighty Leap. Combined with Takedown and Slam, the fighter can slow and keep enemies on the ground with ease. And with incredible closing speed, elite warriors can advantageously use Sprint, by holding the Shift key, to close the gap on enemies attempting to escape. Used in combination with finishing abilities like Punishing Charge or Come and Get It, enemies do not stand a chance while the class is on the hunt.

If you have a thirst for punishing enemies and an insatiable appetite for combat, the Great Weapon Fighter is the class for you. Rest and respite is for the weak – will you lead the charge in Neverwinter?
