Back to Skill Progression
A warriors skill progression is simple. In the writers opinion, it only boils down to one choice you have to make. Would you like to learn to use slash weapons or bludgeon weapons first? To be very honest, it doesn't even matter!
Combat (Naturally known)
Kick (Known to 50% naturally)
Bash (Know to 50% naturally)
Here you get to choose Bludgeon or Slash
Learn the one you don't know already, Bludgeon or Slash
Judge (To 60% at least)
Once these are learned you can feel free to learn whatever other warrior skills you find necessary. Note, Ground Smash is a coveted skill only learned by tome, understand that learning this skill will take time and resources.
