In a world fraught with war and torn
by savage battles there is often no one that a lone fighter can depend
upon, heart and soul, for protection and companionship. This does not
stand true for the brave hunter class, the White Lion. The High Elves
have mastered the beautiful synchronicity between elf and beast,
coupling pure cunning with raw power and channeling it towards the
protection of their people and the destruction of their enemies.
This moderately armored class chooses just how to use their lion
companion in battle. Through the various masteries the beast
can either fulfill a true combat duo or he may work with his trusted
hunter in more of a support role. Regardless, the lion is an
essential part of this mighty warrior's ability to withstand the evil
of the Destruction.

Official White Lion Description
"Do not be deceived by the rugged beauty of Chrace, for
behind that serene mask lies a beast like none other. No, no I speak
not of the War Lion but of its White Lion master whose will can bring
such a beast to heel!"
- Kitharl Woodwalker, Huntsman
The Elves of northern kingdoms are a hardy folk, self
sufficient; they live in the wilds of the northernmost coast of
Ulthuan. The land of Chrace is a bulwark against invasion and her
hunters prowl the woodlands for Dark Elf raiding parties, spies and
assassins. It was one such hunting party that saved Caledor the First
from certain doom at the hand of an assassin's blade. These hunters
became known as "White Lions". A name taken for their fierceness and
courage in battle, and the pelts earned by slaying a great White Lion
in single combat. Deeply attuned to the natural world the Chracian
hunter do not kill the white lions out of hand, and the greatest of
their order have been known to raise a cub into a powerful War Lion
trained to savage their foes on the field of battle.
As melee DPS class, the White Lion shines in both group and solo game
In a group positional attacks and the use of the pet add
to the overall damage output greatly. As with most pet
classes, the lion allows for solo play that can go above and beyond
what non-pet classes can do. The hunter gains either a tank
or a DPS companion with your war lion without ever having to wait for
In RvR the hunter's war lion makes an excellent source of distraction
in combat. Using him to bait your opponent while you either
attack via ranged or work out your own positioning works
well. When enemies hone in on the hunter instead, keep the
lion in the fray and he can potentially go unnoticed.
The White Lion class can be a valuable asset in team
play, backing up the tank classes and aiding in the protection of the
mages and healers.

Of the Hunter: White Lions who
choose the path of the Hunter embrace the ways of the wild and fight
shoulder to shoulder with their War Lion. The two stride into battle
side by side in a balanced assault that is capable of spreading damage
around to multiple targets with ease. This path requires the least
amount of Master & Pet coordination so damage against a single
foe is lessened.
Path of the
Axeman: White Lions who choose
this path focus on the Mastery of their fine woodsman axes, preferring
instead to use their lions as distractions as they approach from the
side or Rear. The path of the Axeman requires good coordination with
your War Lion or your group members so you can be allowed to strike
from an unguarded flank.
Path of the
Guardian: White Lions who choose
this path focus on diverting attention from their War Lion or Group
members so that they can do maximum damage. The path of the guardian
does not directly increase the White Lion's own defenses significantly
but focuses more on reducing his opponents damage output and
distracting them from the War Lion or individual group mates.
