With this skill, you barge forward in a straight line and smash all the targets in your path, dealing weapon-based damage and setting the Knockdown status.

Best Race for the Fighter

Both the Lizard and the Elf have no predisposition towards the Fighter and should not be used with the class.

Human has a medium predisposition towards the Fighter because of its increased initiative and the critical damage bonus that is offered by the race.

Dwarf is by far the best race for the class because of its base strength which balances the constitution of the character and the damage dealt. His racial Ability is also very useful.
