As promised, I’d be making a new thread about WAR once we got closer to Beta. Well, as you can see, we’re close, and they’re taking signups now. I’m personally signed up for both the US and EU betas, so just fudge up your adress a bit. Anyway, for people that haven’t heard me ranting before, WAR is a new MMO. It’s basically WoW minus the stupid and plus demon bitches with their tits out.
There’s been actual details about the classes now, so let’s toss that shit in here.
<b><a href=“http://www.warhammeronline.com/english/gameInfo/armiesofWAR/Empire/Careers/BrightWizard.php”>BRIGHT WIZARD</a></b>
Bright Wizards are basically the ranged DPS of The Empire. They’re your average fire mage turned up a few notches, basically setting everything possible on fire and drinking a shitload of strong liquor. I’d post a cooler picture but they all break the thread.
<b><a href=“http://www.warhammeronline.com/english/gameInfo/armiesofWAR/Empire/Careers/warriorpriest.php”>WARRIOR PRIEST</a></b>
The healing class, Warrior Priests are basically bald paladins with less morality and more violence. Since WAR is awesome their healing abilities depend on them smashing people’s brains in, so there’s no healadin stay in the backrow bullshit going on here. They’re supposed to actually pack a punch, too.
<b><a href=“http://www.warhammeronline.com/english/gameInfo/armiesofWAR/Empire/Careers/WitchHunter.php”>WITCH HUNTERS</a></b>
Witch Hunter more liek Van Hellsing mirite??? Melee DPS, they’re there to fuck your shit up and set heretics on fire. Like those goddamn manual labourers using hammers for manual labour, the fuckers. They seem to have a Rogue-like combo/finisher system steeped in torture and inflicting pain, and no, they’re not gonna stealth. Also they wear awesome hats.
<b><a href=“http://www.warhammeronline.com/english/media/conceptArt/full/12192006_06.jpg”>KNIGHTS OF THE BLAZING SUN</a></b>
Not much is known about these guys yet, except that they’re the Empire’s tanks and second melee-centered class, and that they’ll “learn to fight with their feet off the ground” (read: mounted combat). Like other Empire members, they wear hats which are to <i>die for</i>.
Yeah, gee, wonder what these guys do? They also learn to “fight with their feet off the ground”, wear fucking thick as all hell armour and wield huge goddamn weapons. Clearly, they provide the comic relief of the Chaos faction.
<a href=“http://mythicmktg.fileburst.com/media/images/newsletters/warhammer/2007/0307NLSS_01.jpg”>The Disc!</a>
They’re spellcasters on a demonic hoverboard, flying around, casting spells. They won’t ever be able to leave the disc, ever. They will have a million secondary effects on their spells. They will most likely be my main class.
This lovely and well-adjusted individual is the Chaos healer. And debuffer. And god knows what else. Their heals also work through an elaborate system which requires them to do shit besides healing, so no healbot spam here. Also they’re into birds and might control them as pets or something, whatever, they can stab you in the face and wear a dress.
Not much is known about these guys, except for the part where they’ll skullfuck you repeatedly and transform their arms into weapons like crab claws and axes and shit. They’re also motherfucking vikings.
