RIP Frostweaver

Recommended Posts

You can't really say that for sure because there are plenty of magic melees that work great on other games. Abilities that would push/pull the enemies or even just slow them down would make this class great at chasing, it wouldn't be perfect in mass pvp but it would excell in securing kills.

I'm talking about the Confessor.

Hmm, they use a bow as well....is there a post somewhere that states the frostcleaver is their main weapon? The description on them still says ranged magic DPS...

 

Wait, I am being stupid....can I open all the skill tress yet in the archetypes trees?  I will do so at today's test if I can...

 

Ok, your right there was nothing explicitly stating that frostcleavers are their main weapon, but because they are usual featured with i am sure that it will at least be their starting weapon with upgrades to other things for promotion classes.

 

I found this information in  one of the weapon trees. I can try and get a pic of it from the test.

 

Furthermore, different melee weapons should have different reaches. Therefore, because frostcleavers have a chain I am assuming they will have a greater reach than most melee. Then when you pair it with magic, I think that it would be a pretty unique combo instead of just making it confessor II with ice.

I am ok with this now.....They are making the fessor, ranged AOE and single target now....This combo on this char (frostweaver) works for me now...

Im really hoping this is a soft CC class, lots of snares/slows to stop runners.  Either that or the counter play debuffer to healers/melee trains.

What is wrong with a battle mage? Not all mages need or should be far away as possible. I would love to have different types of mages in game than your typical mage. 

I like battle mages, but really hope there is a control mage or a spec that goes down the CC path.   CC and counter play for stacking healers is a key part of smaller teams having a chance of beating larger zergs.   You might not get all the big numbers flashing on the screen but CC and debuffing classes are rewarding to play at least for me.

I personally think they need to add some form of "Doomsayer". In SB, this was pretty much your drain class with some pretty strong buffs to a single target. They usually got focused first...

Sounds like my kind of class for group play.

Maybe they can make igloos around themselves, with a short cooldown?


Honestly, you are the type of person that is much to competitive, has zero compassion for other people and think you are better than everyone else. You likely love to troll people on a day to day bases to get others angry and laugh about it. You make playing any online game unfun for everyone else.  -Kuroaka

Have they even designed this archetype yet?

They probably do have a design goal for the Archetype and have some powers laid out, but we won't know until the Frostweaver is announced to be the next Archetype to be built.

One of the profession promotion for the fessor is labeled as Doomsayer.  I'm not saying it's going to be the same as playing a mino doomie; but a confessor derivative could be the drain class.

My favourite character to play in DAOC was a spirit mage specializing in PBAOE which is a non targeted point black aoe. They were awesome.

 

That being said this site has

https://crowfall.com/en/archetypes/frostweaver/

 

ranged dps (magic) 

 

so is that out of date and wrong?

 

all we know is they have some elements of melee weapon powers "frostcleavers" but this could easily also be combined with ranged magic damage powers too

 

*shrug*

 

these pages are hardly super reflective of what the classes currently are or will be [lol ranger specialist hide ok]

I'm guessing that the Frostweaver is being totally re-concepted from what we saw in the Kickstarter footage. I doubt we'll see a frostcleaver (thank god), as it'd probably be a nightmare to animate. Thematically, I'd prefer a more classical, western, look instead of the eastern influence that seems to be informing Dave's latest concept. The could end up being a melee-magic dps class, which would be pretty cool. Ice damage will likely predominate, either way.

frostcleavers are in the skill training already under melee ^_^

judging from the pictures we can see i dont think they will wear anything heavier than leather, personally i´d like to see a "jumpy" mage, that rushes in, freezes in meele range and dashes out again to combo with single target/aoe spells onto the previous freeze, would go hand in hand with the "will you dance with me" vibe they are giving

All archetypes can wear all types of armor.
