The warrior's class-based resource is kinetic energy, which he generates by executing most of his normal attacks and which gradually decays while he is both in and out of combat. However, many of the most powerful attacks in his arsenal are only possible by expending massive amounts of stored energy all at once.

Just how bad-ass is the warrior class in WildStar?
On a scale of 1 to 10: 15.
Why does the warrior have a sword in a sci-fi space game?
That's not just an ordinary sword, kiddo, it's a nuclear-powered Greatsword. Whatever your circumstances, there are few problems that can't be solved by slicing them to irradiated ribbons.
How does a melee player hold his own in a game like WildStar that has so much AOE?
While they have to master perhaps the most complex relationships between resource management and split-second timing, and evasive-offensive combos, melee characters not only hold their own against AOE, they're the ANSWER to AOE. Their ability to wear heavy armor and access to powerful defensive abilities makes them virtually invulnerable and the more foes they take on simultaneously, the more powerful they get. They like nothing more than being in the heat of the action and there is nothing quite so satisfying or devastating as leaping into a solid wave of enemies to unleash a Whirlwind and annihilating their ranks like a spinning cyclone of testosterone.
Do I have to play my warrior as a tank? Or as a DPS dealer?
Depending on how you choose to configure your Action Set, the warrior can be played as a straight-up tank, DPS, or a hybrid fine-tuned to the infinitesimal. Whatever floats your boat.
Are warriors relevant in PvP?
Warriors are the heart and soul of PvP, as they can take as well as they can dish out. Every enemy has to choose between focusing on the warrior while his buddies jump you or leaving him be and suffering the consequences as he wreaks havoc and starts racking up kills.
What kinds of crowd control abilities does the warrior have?
The warrior's specialty is locking people down trying to flee his magnificent feats of ferocity. People trying to escape a warrior's clutches have to contend with his/her vast array of snares, tethers, knockdowns, and other annoyances. You don't run away until the warrior says you can go.
