Guide

Well here we go.

1. Cast your weakness/curse spell.
2. Leap slam into the party.
3. Spam your cleave, or use the spells.

In boss fights, kite them off or just go rambo mode and use heavy strike & spam potions.

Also big point, have fun, enjoy the feeling of you being a warrior that got frost magic in your hands, the epic feeling of being original. This build was made for aesthetics and to put a bit of roleplay into this awesome game and its still very viable !

Simplicity itself, no more to tell.

Also thanks for any feedback !
