Promotion Classes

Recommended Posts

I'm really intrigued by this archetype. So far we can see them using three different kinds of "weapons". There is the ice blade tied with some sort of chain or rope. we can see them using magic and in the kickstarter video at around 3:50 there is one with a bow.

 

So far I would say they won't be ideal tanks due to the low strength on the stats displayed.

Maybe something like ranged DPS physical and magical, shorter range DPS but not exactly melee (wonder how long that chain goes), support with CC skills ice related? So many possibilities, for all we know they could make an ice shield and smack people in the face or be a really fast dps dual wielding ice weapons  :D

What sort of roles do you think the Frostweaver will be able to promote to? Right now, it starts as a ranged dps...could it become a melee dps or a tank with plate armor?

 

Sorry Soulein, you're not getting a bladeweaver in heavy plate!  Don't think it is in the cards ("blademaster thrall" notwithstanding).  I'm not getting my bard, either....

Don't be so certain! Promotion classes can change a character's role pretty drastically, and there may yet be more archetypes added in before launch.

I've seen at least 2 games do the scythe at the end of a chain thing and those classes are usually mid range.

With the right CC and debuffs you don't need to hit hardest or fastest. You just need to use powers well. I see potential.

I hope we get a offensive suport / Control specialist. Slowing/freezing enemies; creating ice walls; freezing the terrain, making it slippy.


With only poison in my veins!

I hope at least 1/3 of the Frostweaver promotion options (assuming only 3 per archetype) is front-line melee oriented.

 

I'm hoping for something along the lines of a heavy-cc bladeweaver.

low armor, high mobility, pretty fragile overall

That Ice Cleaver looks bigger than most swords. It could turn into a flying Guillotine for all we know.

I feel like this or druid will be the most CC intensive class. And likely this will be DOT as opposed to the Confessor. Plus maybe one of the promotions will be a Frost knight. You summon an armour of frost, and fight in melee combat with blades made of ice or something else. I feel like the class may even have the ability to summon various weapons of frost, adapting to a situation. And thus the promotion classes would be either a tanky frost knight, a controlling frost singer thing or a high damage output frost assassin.

Frostweaver might be able to promote to some sort of Hunger Necromancer, using the infected creatures to destroy their enemies before their own faction gets destroyed. In her Bio, the frostweaver seemed to be an agent of the Hunger anyway.

How'd you figure that?
