Fighter is possibly the most widespread adventurer class in Faerun, as it can be used to describe a wide variety of professions and types of warrior. Simply put, a Fighter is someone with at least some degree of weapons training, be it formal or informal. Fighters can be elite, professional fighters or self-taught, and may either specialise with one weapon in particular or be proficient with several, allowing a certain degree of flexibility in a combat situation.

Fighters can be of any alignment. The Fighter class does not bestow any magical ability.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A fighter is proficient with all simple and martial weapons and with all armor (heavy, medium, and light) and shields (including tower shields).

Bonus Feats: At 1st level, a fighter gets a bonus combat-oriented feat in addition to the feat that any 1st-level character gets and the bonus feat granted to a human character. The fighter gains an additional bonus feat at 2nd level and every two fighter levels thereafter (4th, 6th, 8th, 10th, 12th, 14th, 16th, 18th, and 20th). These bonus feats must be drawn from the feats noted as fighter bonus feats. A fighter must still meet all prerequisites for a bonus feat, including ability score and base attack bonus minimums.

These bonus feats are in addition to the feat that a character of any class gets from advancing levels. A fighter is not limited to the list of fighter bonus feats when choosing these feats.
