Let's break it down. See comments in the code:

from character import Character

class Warrior(Character):
    weapon = "sword"

    # Make a new Warrior method called rage...
    # a method is a function bound to a class.
    # uses 'self' as first parameter.
    def rage(self):
        # that sets attack_limit to 20.
        # to set attributes for this object,
        # preceed the assignment with 'self.'
        self.attack_limit = 20

    # When Warrior is converted to a string,...
    # this implies the __str__() method
    def __str__(self):
        # the string should be like "Warrior, <weapon>, <attack_limit>".
        # Update your class to produce this string using values from the instance.
        string = "Warrior, {}, {}".format(self.weapon, self.attack_limit)
        return string
