Ultimately, all warriors' skills entries should be identical and look like this:
Class Skills (4+Int):
Balance, Climb, Swim, and Tumble.
Because they need points in at least 3/4 and Int is almost NEVER a priority. If they put points in any other skills they might as well throw their sheet in the trash before it hits the table, because that means that either they've prioritized Int at the expense of combat scores or they've screwed themselves into being worthless in one or more battlefield conditions.
