When Warrior is converted to a string, the string should be like "Warrior, <weapon>, <attack_limit>". Update your class to produce this string using values from the instance: please help me am stuck: here is my code___:

from character import Character 
class Warrior(Character):
  weapon = 'sword'
  def rage(self):
    self.attack_limit = 20
    return self.attack_limit
def __str__(self):
      return "{}, {}, {}".format(self.__class__.__name__,

Learning Python at the moment myself but shouldn't the return be

'Warrior, {}, {}'.format(...)

Sometimes I've had issues with the Challenges and It has been issues of being too smart for what its asking. Really sorry if this is useless help.

I gather that the missing __ in def __str(self): is being swallowed by the formatting. I recommend using surrounding your code in triple-back-quotes as mentioned in the Markdown Cheatsheet.

Very Close! Your string method needs to be named __str__ as in `def __str__(self):

def __str__(self):  # <-- corrected method name
    return "{}, {}, {}".format(self.class.name_, self.weapon, self.attack_limit)

thanks it worked
