A warrior can focus on strength and conventional damage, or intelligence and magical damage (or a mix of both, using 'balanced' weapons). When I played the original release of D2:ED I went with a strength based build, but any extra magical damage was good. You will eventually start getting swords with two (or rarely 3) enchantment slots, so the best options (IMO) for those would be Increased Damage first, and Increased Magical Damage second (or vise versa if you focus on magical based damage to make a battle mage type build).
