The Best Character

The Best Character in Warhammer: Chaosbane

If you are new to the game it is advised that you begin with the Imperial Soldier class. This is the easiest class to start the game with and he comes equipped with a shield and sword. The Imperial Soldier class is without doubt the best all-rounder of the four classes featuring both a decent attack and a good defense. The Slayer class is basically a tank as he is able to absorb a lot of damage and the High-Elf is the class you should select if you prefer to deal damage from a distance. The Wood Elf is the fastest and most agile character on offer.
