Pure Mystic classes are also an option, but will likely require some Mystic grinding:

And finally, back to pure Combat classes:

  • Guardian: requires Item>Mystic, One-Handed 13 or Power Grip 13 or Two-Handed 13, Herbs 6 or Lotions 6, STR47+. This one can be tricky as Items are an established significant skill group, so Weapons needs to be the only significant skill before meeting the Items requirement.
  • Gladiator: requires Mystic>Item, Power Grip 16, highest Mystic skill is Wards, STR53+
  • Ordainer: requires Item/Mystic balance, all Weapon Types level 19+, STR59+
