The worst enemy of all warriors are stuck-effects.
one u're freezed, dazed or in any kind unable to approach the enemy fast, or the enemy is faster than you the result is clear: u're dead meat -> no fun at all.
the most fun u'll get is when u can mock enemy's while they can't touch you. like when he's sheeped (mage) , knocked out (rogue) or feared (priest/warlock).
i had a lot of fun playing with the warriors and paladins in strangelton, fearing 'em - shield on - sit down... wait... laugh... watch 'em run... stand up... and fear 'em again
