2. About the Author
--------------------
I already did FAQS on my previous account under the name of CloudyFF7. But 
this is my first time doing a FAQ on this account, "gundameisters". As of the
moment I usually do quick reviews on gundam games. Aside from that, I'm more 
into rpg and fighting games. I never thought that I would play a puzzle game. 
I became addicted to Puzzle Quest ever since I started playing it. I didn't 
stop until I completed the game. It's definitely a great game. I can't believe 
that a puzzle game could be this enjoyable and complicated. Simply put, it's a 
combination of puzzle and rpg. I made this guide to show my passion for the 
game and also to help other players as well. Take note that the things I've 
put in here are based on my personal experience from the game.



--------------------
3. About the Guide
--------------------
This guide contains all the stuff you need to know about the WARRIOR class.
Basically this will include the spells, enemy spells, equipments and skills.
I will explain them in full detail and I've put ratings on some of them to
indicate on how usable they are. However, my guide is not perfect. I will not
mention how I got my equipments and enemy spells. You'll have to refer on 
other guides for more information.

Among the 4 available classes, I consider the warrior as the best class in
terms of fighting power. The Warrior starts out slow, but will become a killer
machine at the later part of the game. With the proper set of equipments and
spells, the warrior can deal over 100+ pts. of damage in a single turn. You'll
just need to have patience and a good strategy in using this character. Don't
worry because I will tell you all the things you need to know in order to beat
the game and become a Lv.50 warrior. I will even elaborate the strategy
thoroughly by dividing into 3 parts: early, mid and late game plan.



------------
4. Spells
------------
The Warrior class has a total of 12 spells. I'll explain each thoroughly and
include some comments on how effective their are. The rating will signify on
how usable they are.

4.1. Battle Cry (Lv.1)
Cost: 6Red, 4Yellow
Effect: Randomly creates a +5 Skull. Your turn does not end if Red Mana is 15+.
Rating: 1/5
Comment: This is not a good spell. I find it hard to use even if combined with
Deathbringer and Berserker Rage. There's also a risk that the enemy  might be
the one who will benefit from it. So I don't recommend on using this spell.

4.2. Wild Lore (Lv.2)
Cost: 8Yellow, 8Blue
Effect: Destroys all Yellow and Blue Gems. Adds +1 to experience for every
gem destroyed.
Rating: 2/5
Comment: Usable only on the early part of the game for fast level up. Just
make sure there are lots of Yellow and Blue Gems on the grid.

4.3. Spin Attack (Lv.3)
Cost: 6Green, 8Red
Effect: Destroys gems around a selected gem. You gain full effects for all
gems destroyed.
Rating: 3/5
Comment: Effective spell in gaining mana of any color.

4.4. Cleave (Lv.5)
Cost: 9Red, 6Yellow
Effect: Does 1pt. of damage for every Yellow Gem in play. All Yellow Gem in
play are destroyed.
Rating: 4/5
Comment: Great way of damaging your enemy when there's an abundance of Skulls
and Red Gems. Make sure there are lots of Yellow Gem before using this spell.

4.5. Throw Axe (Lv.7)
Cost: 6Green, 8Red
Effect: Does 4 pts. of damage to enemy. Plus an additional +1 for every Skull
in play.
Rating: 5/5
Comment: This is an early spell that you'll want to carry throughout the 
whole game. It's one of my favorite spell in the Warrior Class. It will really
help you out in damaging your enemy when there are lots of Skulls on the grid.

4.6. Enrage (Lv.8)
Cost: 2Green, 6Red
Effect: Adds your Red Mana total Battle Skill for 8 turns. Your turn does not
end after casting this spell.
Rating: 1/5
Comment: I find it useless at the early part of the game. It wastes mana and I
could barely feel the effect. It might contribute a little to the lv.50 
Revenant. But as far as I'm concern, I wouldn't recommend keeping this spell.

4.7. Bloodlust (Lv.10)
Cost: 5Green, 5Yellow, 5Blue
Effect: Adds +12 to Red Mana. The turn ends.
Rating: 5/5
Comment: There are times when Red Gems are hard come by and it is bad for the
Warrior since most of his spells rely on them. It's a good thing he has this
support spell that gives him Red Gems in cases of emergency.

4.8. Summon Tempest (Lv.15)
Cost: 8Red, 5Yellow, 5Blue
Effect: Destroys 2 random columns of gems. You gain full effects for all
gems destroyed.
Rating: 3/5
Comment: Great way in gaining various mana colors. Keep it until you find a
much better spell.

4.9. Berserker Rage (Lv.20)
Cost: 5Green, 8Red
Effect: Turns Red Gems into Skulls. Your turn does not end if Red Mana is 15+.
Rating: 5/5
Comment: One of the Warrior's best spell. Depending on the order of the Skulls
and Red Gems on the grid, the Warrior can inflict multiple damage in a single
turn.

4.10. Deathbringer (Lv.30)
Cost: 8Green, 16Red, 8Yellow, 8Blue
Effect: Randomly creates Skulls equal to half your Red Mana. After gems are
transformed, the turn ends.
Rating: 5/5
Comment: Most powerful spell in the Warrior's arsenal. With the proper set of
equipments and high Battle skill, this spell can deal over 100+ pts. of
damage in a single turn. There's also a high probability for an extra turn.
Just make sure that your Red Mana reserve is full (atleast 40).

4.11. Singing Blades (Lv.40)
Cost: 8Red, 6Yellow
Effect: Reduces your enemy's Mana Reserves by 4 whenever you do damage. Lasts
for 5 turns, plus an additional turn for every 2 of your yellow mana.
Rating: 3/5
Comment: For a lv.40 spell I really don't appreciate it. I would rather go for
the kill immediately and use my mana for Deathbringer.

4.12. Revenant (Lv.50)
Cost: 10Green, 25Red, 20Yellow
Effect: Doubles your Battle skill. Your Battle returns to normal when combat
is completed.
Rating: 4/5
Comment: This is only effective if you have a high Battle skill. That's why I
recommend of having atlest 99pts. of Battle skill so that you would get 300%
additional damage.

5. Usable Enemy Spells
-----------------------
Take note that this is not a complete list of enemy skills. Only those that I
think are usable to the Warrior class. To learn these spells you must first 
capture the monster and research the spell at your Citadel. Each spell has 
it's own difficulty depending on it's effectiveness.

5.1. Call the Horde (Orc Lord)
>Difficulty: Very Hard
>Effect: Destroys all Green and Red Gems. Adds +1 to Red Mana, Green Mana,
and Life Points for every gem destroyed.

recovery spells and is in need of Red & Green Mana. There's also a chance
for a pair-up.

5.2. Charge! (Minotaur)
>Difficulty: Hard
>Effect: Destroys a selected row of gems and does 5pts. of damage. You gain the
effects of every gem destroyed.

amount of damage to the enemy while getting the chance of causing extra 
damage for skull pair-ups.

5.7. Sword of Bane (Doom Knight)
>Difficulty: Hard
>Effect: Does damage equal to your Green Mana. Reduces your Green Mana to 0.
>The Warrior make use of the Green Mana as it's secondary to Red Mana. So
you will find this spell useful in dealing damage to the enemy.

5.8. Fire Siphon (Fire Elemental)
>Difficulty: Very Hard
>Effect: Reduces your enemy's Red Mana to zero. Adds +1 to Life Points for
>every Red Mana reduced.

6. Strategy
------------

6.1. Early game (Lv.1-15)
The first thing you should do is to familiarize yourself with the Warrior's
spells and how they work. His playing style mainly compose of Red Gems and
Skulls. As much as possible fight every enemy you encounter for early level
up. In distributing skill points, you should focus on the Red Mana and
Battle. Your sub Skills are Green Mana, Cunning and Morale. Don't mind the
Yellow and Blue because the Warrior has little use for them. The earliest
mount you could get is the Giant Rat and it's good since it will give you
some Cunning skill. For equipments, just use those that increase damage,
defense and red mana. Anyway their just temporary. We'll definitely change
them later for better equipments. Just always check the shop for new products.
Your Skull damage isn't that high yet. So you need to rely on the Cleave and
Throw Axe spell for great damage. Remember that the one with the highest
Cunning skill will always take the first turn. If your enemy goes first and
your not happy with the result, just exit the battle and re-enter again.
Continue doing this until you get a grid that you like.

6.2. Mid Game (Lv.16-30)
By now you should know how the Warrior fights. You will really feel the
power once you get the Deathbringer spell. It could cause a lot of damage to
the enemy and cause various effects on the grid. Use it in combination with
the Berserker Rage for more effectiveness. Just keep bringing the Cleave and 
Throw Axe spell to serve as your backup offensive spell. If you already have
ideas on what are the best equipments, then that is good. But I would suggest
getting equipments that has mana gain effect for red and green so that you
could cast spells much faster. For the skills, try to get atleast 20pts. for
the Green, Red, Cunning and Moral skill. Then most of the pts. should be given
to the Battle skill until it's 99. It's time to start upgrading your Citadel
to the fullest. So that you will be able to learn enemy spells, level up
mounts, improve skills and forge items. As you open new areas on the map, more
enemies will pop-up. So be prepared for frequent enemy encounters. If you want
to travel fast, you could ride the Wolf or Griffon. Just change mount before
you encounter an enemy. Also, it's important to take note that some enemies
now has spell resistance. Use your spells cautiously.

6.3 Late Game (Lv.31-50)
It's near the end of the game and your Warrior should already have a
powerful set of equipments. Your playing style should still focus on the
combos of Berserker Rage and Deathbringer, with the addition of the Revenant.
You will need to carry this set until the end. If you had problem getting
runes at the early game, now is the time to gather them on every place and
forge a strong rune weapon. I forged the "Edge of Poison". It has an effect
that gives +7 additional damage for every 6 or more damage and gives 40%
chance to cause poison. You should also get armors that gives you spell
resistance. You could also get 1% spell resistance for every 20pts. of morale.
You will notice that the experience requirement increases on each level. Just
keep on taking quests until you reach the max lv50. I recommend the Wyvern
for your final mount since it's Battle skill effect is a great contribution
to the Warrior. Most of the monsters should already have been captured by now.
Try to learn the enemy's spells that are usable to the Warrior. With the
proper preparation, you will easily beat the final boss. After beating the
game, there's nothing else to do but roam around the map and siege every
castle.

7. Final Setup
--------------
Before we end this guide, I want to share with you my Warrior's final setup.
I wouldn't say it's the best. But it sure made my Warrior powerful. I hope
this would help you out.


7.1. Skills
------------
Your final skills should look a little bit like this. I believe you could do
even better. Not all of this pts. were gained through level up. Some were
improved from the Citadel.

Earth Mastery - 20
Fire Mastery - 24
Air Mastery - 2
Water Mastery - 2
Battle - 99
Cunning - 20
Morale - 60


7.2. Equipment

>Helms / Crowns = Bonefire Helm 
Adds +1 to Green Mana for every 2 Red Mana you gain.

Protects against 1pt. of damage whenever you receive 2 or more damage,
adds +15% to Earth resistance.
>Weapon - Edge of Poison (Rune)
Adds +7 to damage whenever you do 6 or more damage. Gives a 40% chance to
cause poison whenever you do damage.
>Miscellaneous = Phoenix Shield
Adds +1 to Green and Red Mana for every 2pts. of damage you received.

in battle by giving you passive effects.

Winter - halves the starting mana of any enemy whose Fire Mastery is 15+

8. Closing
-----------
Since I've already completed the game, I'm planning next on playing the 
Puzzle Quest 2 and Galactrix. I'm expecting that it would be much better with
a lot of new cool features. So look forward to my future walkthroughs.
That's about it for the guide. I hope you find the warrior class
appealing as much as I do. I also encourage you to try other classes as well.
Each class are unique in their own way. 

At the end, it's really up to you on how you play the game. Walkthroughs are
