Before Combat The fighter drinks her potion of barkskin and both potions of resist energy. She then activates her boots of speed.

During Combat The fighter chooses her weapon based on the weaknesses of her foes. She engages slower foes with her bow and keeps her distance. Against lightly armored enemies or spellcasters, she fights with a shillelagh-enhanced quarterstaff.
