The Rhodok sergeant is the melee infantry class of the Kingdom of Rhodoks in Multiplayer games. Rhodok sergeants have a mediocre selection of torso armors for a melee infantry class, but their array of weapons -- including the pike, the game's longest weapon, block-crushing hammers, and the highly protective board shield -- makes them a potent class. They have the highest polearm proficiency in the game. However, at maximum equipment, they are overall the weakest-armored infantry unit; their strongest armor being a chain hauberk with a surcoat.
The Rhodok sergeant's armory of polearms presents several options. The pike has the longest reach of any weapon in the game. Glaives combine adequate reach with power. War spears are fast, and can be used one-handed with a shield if necessary. Ashwood pikes aren't bad, but they don't seem to have any real niche. They lack the length of regular pikes, lack the power of glaives, lack the flexibility and speed of war spears. While Rhodok sergeants are excellent against cavalry, they lack any particularly good anti-cavalry one-handed weapons, like the bamboo spear or long awlpike, the simple war spear being their best. With hammers, sergeants can crush many foes reliant on blocking enemies, although this can leave them vulnerable to missiles, longer-reaching weapons, and quick attacks with weapons like scimitars. Curiously, sergeants do no employ any "real" swords, relying on cleavers and such instead.
