WFRP is a very traditional system, closer to D&D than most. But you should still avoid making too many assumptions. That being said, its reputation is overblown. WFRP is a realistic and dangerous system, but you can still succeed and survive.
You can, depending on what you're up against and who you are.
A party consisting of a Squire, a Warrior Acolyte of Sigmar, a Recruit, and a Wizards apprentice are going to have an easier time fighting a Vargulf than a party consisting of a Beggar, an Artist, a Coachman, and a Servant.
