The bonus of the Warlord gives +5 to melee attack.
The Warlord is most likely to learn Combat and Nobility and fairly likely to learn the Tactics skill. All other skills can also be learned when leveling up, but have less chance of appearing for selection.
The Warlord is essentially the close-combat version of the Ranger, and has one of the worst bonuses in the game. On the other hand, Combat and Nobility are a good combination, giving a good hero a large army that can outnumber and overpower most enemies.
But if class bonuses are important, this is not the class to choose.
