The first opportunity to strip naked for high attack in Orna obviously starts when we can unlock the Swash spec at tier 7 (lvl 150). Typically it’s rare for all players to have the heavy 2 Mil orn cost to purchase their tier 7 class directly on reaching level 150. However the 50K orns cost for tier 7 specs is an easier pill to swallow and in the case for this guide, provides a great introduction to the world of Swash with the Blademaster class (the main melee option at tier 6).
Going Swash first gives us time to get accustomed to the Swash life and be prepared - it’s the ultimate glass cannon playstyle and likely very different to how you’ve played Orna up until this point. As usual when entering a new tier in the game we’ve got a number of fairly brutal mobs to deal with at tier 7 that can be especially tough to deal with while being a class tier down. The tier 7 Majistrate class gains over 1000 HP which will make most difficult Blademaster encounters much easier to deal with, however we gotta start somewhere.
Nevertheless, Blademaster Swash is fun, fast and as long as you’re prepared to die regularly and lose a few dungeons here and there, it’s definitely an awesome and viable entry into tier 7 and more importantly for your overall Orna career, it’s a great first step into the wonderful world of Swash.
As always, we’ve got heaps of experienced Swash players on hand to help out in the Orna Legends discord server, welcome to everyone - you’ll also want to join the dedicated Swash server set up by Swash legend Lenneth Valkyrie called The Arisen Swashbuckler. A must-visit for all aspiring Swashies.
We've just uploaded a 2-part Warrior Class Progression guide video series to YouTube and are currently in the process of fleshing out a proper written guide for this site. You can check out the video guides here:
Part 1: Classes, Specs and Pets
Part 2: Itemisation
In the meantime we'll post the summary screenshots for each tier that we mention in the video. If you haven't watched the video yet, these screenshots give a general overview of which items you should be aiming for at each tier, without the added detail as to why we missed certain items out.
Tier 1 - Warrior
Tier 2 - Valkyrie / Paladin
