Exclusive WAR Call to Arms Interview - The Slayer, Choppa, and Land of the Dead
For massively multiplayer online gamers, nothing is more thrilling than
the addition of new classes. Not only do they often provide a
completely new experience for player, they also give new players in the
game a fresh set of faces to experience the game with.
Back before the launch of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, the developers at Mythic Entertainment opted to pull out four of their original starting classes, stating that they just weren't ready to see the light of release. Since that time the developers have released two of the classes during a "Heavy Metal" event, and now they've announced the final two classes to make their way into the original game: the Dwarf Slayer and the Orc Choppa.
To pave the way for their upcoming content, Mythic Entertainment's Jeff Hickman sat down with Cody "Micajah" Bye to get the exclusive scoop on the Slayer, the Choppa, and the upcoming RvR dungeon "The Land of the Dead." Make sure you check out the interview, then to hear more about the upcoming classes stop in to Ten Ton Hammer's official "Call to Arms" vooncast tonight featuring the WAR developers talking about these new classes and content!
Ten Ton Hammer: Are these two going to be the highest melee DPS classes in the game? Where do they fit in with other melee DPS classes?
Hickman: I hesitate to answer the question because I don't have good numbers in front of me, but I can tell you what the goal is. The goal is that these guys put out a lot of damage. Are they going to be the highest melee damagers? They're going to be close.
When you compare them to the Witchhunter and the Witch Elf and the Marauder and the White Lion. they're all going to be similar in the damage they put out. It really depends on the situation you're in and which class fits best.
