Are we going to be rolling on Core or Open?  It sounds like Core is basically PVE, but Open doesn't let you go back to old areas without turning into poultry.

or maybe rp

I predict that Greenskins will have higher-than-usual populations on RP servers.

This may or may not be linked to my desire to create a macro to yell "WAAAUGH!".

We're going Core. The open rule set is kind of muddled and stupid.

Grudgingly agreeing with Norondor because between Bright Wizard, Witch Hunter and Dwarven Engineer there is a pretty strong showing of mad fucking style against the forces of Chaos.

Also I havn't seen White Lion anything but it sounds pretty god damn GAR and like it may involve my favorite part of WoW Hunters: JOUSTING.

I dunno what to play. There are already two maguses, so i guess we could get a good game of ultimate frisbee going.

I'm increasingly hot for Ironbreaker. It helps that I have a friend who rather likes his Warrior-Priest.

Maybe I just like not ever dying.

There are very few classes that haven't been good times for me yet tbqh. I plan to push every class up to at least rank 5 just to give them all a shot (magus gets doubleawesome disc at rank 11).  Magus has issues, but it's really clicking with me.  That's why I've put in the most playtime with it so far.  I've got some concerns about how well the close-range AOE caster build will work out for it though, so I guess I'll see how well my shiny new armor spell helps in RvR tomorrow?  I like the rhythm of Black Ork a lot too.  The 1-2-3 combo is like a fun game of stunty whack-a-mole.  In fact, so far I'd prolly say I'm almost split between Magus and Ork.  Zealot wasn't grabbing me like I had hoped, and I like Disciple and Sorcerer both well enough but the latter's damage risk is kinda obnoxious since while every other class tends to get some nice big number telling them about their special thingie .. Sorcerer gets a color-changing orb you have to mouse over to see exactly what percentage of Dark Magic you're at.  and then you're slinging your nuke and all of a sudden  :scanners:  Otherwise I'd probably like the class a bit more.

Marauder felt nearly broken to me for the two levels or so I played it when I popped into a Scenario and was just slaughtering people left and right.  Hooray for anecdotes!  I also like Squig Herder thus far, but have not done much with him just yet.  The only two I haven't touched at all are Chosen and Shaman.  I'll probably fix that some tomorrow.

Zealot is basically the only class in the game, as far as i can tell, that has absolutely no special mechanic. They're just WoW Discipline Priests with absolutely nothing unique about them.

Who are they clones of? Rune Priests?

Yeah, they're the "straight healers". I understand that they are, pound for pound, the healiest healer classes in the game, at the expense of being able to do things like blow shit up good.

Their special mechanic is based on their Mark buffs. Each one is a very large, very specialized buff that has the additional effect of granting the target an extra ability, usually something useful, on a moderate cool down. The other thing they get a bit later is rituals, which are very powerful group buffs centered on the caster. Their mechanics isn't anything as obvious as someone like the Black Orc, but that's what it is.

And yes, their parallel is the Rune Priest.

Update: We've chosen Averheim to play. The head start has begun, so if you've preordered the collectors edition, go a head and start rolling your characters on Averheim.

I'm probably never going to play this, but if I do, I call dibs on naming my Witch Hunter either Dante or Damien Darktalon Blood.

Hope you preordered the collector's edition, because those names are going to be taken on every server ever.

PS Mildly irritated that I can't patch because I have to login to do that and I don't have CE preorder, just regular. What a terribly-designed patch system.  Guess I'll just have to grab it on Tuesday when the whole thing explodes.
