"There are traditions among our people that run deep as stone. Their shields are as versatile as they are strong. Their swords are lethal. Simple. An ancient design. And a leader who does not lead the charge is no leader at all. They are called Warlords; a name that is earned: another ancient tradition. To become a Warlord means service to all who need it, for life. They are the shield of our people... and they will not fall."


Warlords are a playable hero class in For Honor.

OverviewEdit

Not born into leadership. They’ve had to earn it through blood, sweat and steel. To be a Warlord means a life of service to their people. Their shield protects those who cannot fight—their sword will cut down those who would attempt to cause their people harm. Their fighting style is simple yet brutal. You will always find them leading the charge.[1]

ArmorEdit

Warlords wear leather and animal pelt over chain mail. This helmet is made of iron and is in the shape of a rounded or peaked cap made from four plates after the spangenhelm pattern and has leather drapes protecting the neck. This helmet has a rounded cap and has a "spectacle" guard around the eyes and nose which forms a sort of mask.

WeaponEdit

Gladius and Shield - The gladius, paired with a sturdy shield, allows the wielder to deflect blows and get close enough to their target to unleash deadly close range attacks.

TriviaEdit

  • While the For Honor website lists the Warlord's sword as a Gladius, historically Vikings never used the Gladius. The Vikings, however, did use derivatives of the spatha sword, which eventually replaced the Gladius in the Roman Empire. The sword the Warlord uses would be classified as a Carolingian sword.
  • The Attitude Adjuster is a reference to the wrestling "finisher" used by John Cena both in the name and the animation that plays. The stab at the end is effectively the pin that follows the move.
  • The execution, the Viking's Elbow, may be a reference to one of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's signature moves, the "People's Elbow," a high-impact elbow drop.
  • Although official information claims that the Warlord wields a gladius, it is much more likely (and more accurate) that the Warlord would wield a Carolingian or even an Ulfberht sword, as the gladius is a sword belonging to the Roman Empire.
