One of the basic character templates provided by Turbine. It replaced the original Warrior template. Its description is as follows:
- SOLDIERS are the essential shield fighter, hewing hordes of enemies with a large weapon. The Soldier profession contains the Dirty Fighting, Heavy Weapons, Item Enchantment, Melee Defense, Shield, Healing and Missile Weapons skills.
In addition to the skills listed, all characters start with the trained starting skills, bonus masteries, and bonus augmentation for their heritage listed on Character Races.
Turbine's suggestion for advancement is to learn Item Magic.
