To some people size is everything, and that has never been more true than with the Great Weapon Fighter, the fourth class revealed for Cryptic’s upcoming Neverwinter MMORPG. The Great Weapon Fighter as the name implies is a wielder of 2-handed great weapons and can take on the role of damage dealer or secondary defender in case your main tank ends up taking a dirt nap.

You believe that shields are cumbersome and deter your ability to fight. Your innate instinct allows you to drive your weapon deep into the hearts of your foes with deadly precision and timing. In the heat of battle, your versatile combat ability allows you to perform different roles within the party. While your defender absorbs the brunt of the damage, you fight to protect your other party members from ambush. And if your defender is down, you are the first to absorb incoming damage keeping your allies from harm.
