Easiest way to check this out is using the console to get a character to level 14.

 

There are no new talentss besides the multiclass talents.

 

From the top of my head, Paladins get a chain-heal (Lay on hands that jumps to up to 5 or 6 targets), Fighters an aura that redirects 50% damage from all allies in the aura to the fighter. Both also get one more new ability, I think, but I can't remember.

 

Just check for yourself, really.

There are two new abilities for the martial classes each, one additional at lvl 11 and a single one at lvl 13. This is my party composition, i don't care much for the spellcasters:

 

Fighter:

- Modal aura that absorbs 50% of incoming damage from allies around him.

- Attack that decreases enemies DR and has +20% damage, per encounter

 

Paladin:

- Chainheal, per encounter, jumps up to 5-6 times, heals around 60 endurance

- Immolation, per encounter, AoE: heals allies, hurts enemies, hurts himself

 

Ranger:

- Play Dead, per encounter, Animal is untargetable, gets healed

- Shoot twice, modal, fires 2 attacks at once with bows (hunting- and war-) only, -10 accuracy

 

Rogue:

- Smokebomb, per encounter, decreases enemies defenses and their engagement limit by 1

- Stunning Attack, per encounter, stuns

 

Monk:

- Iron Wheel: +1 DT per wound

- Fire/Ice Twins: 8 wounds, Summons two unarmed copies of the character with equal (?) stats, one fire based, one ice based

 

Chanter:

- 3 new 4th Level Chants, 3 new 4th Level Incovation, for some reason an additional general talent at LVL 13 (or it was because it is my main).

- 4th lvl chants take 10 seconds to cast and have 5 seconds linger time.

- Chants Include Defenses against mind targeting CC (charm, confuse, etc) or a damage shield that absorbs 30 damage once per chanted.

- One Invocation increases attack speed, DT and interrupt of the chanter heavily

 

 

The damage shield chant was pretty underwhelming:

I fought with exceptional platemail against darguls on Od Nua Lvl 6 and could only tank 2 hits with that damage shield until it was gone.

Being refered to as a person intead of my username makes me feel devalued somehow. :p Thanks for the list though! Feels a bit unfair that the spells are that much better than the stuff the chanter gets, not to say the martial classes. :/

Anyway, the barbarian is the only one missing now:

 

Barbarian:

- Eye of the storm: Can't be engaged by enemies 2 levels below the barbarian.

- Dragon Leap: 1 per encounter, select a location to jump to, Foe AoE, 20-30 damage, Foe AoE daze for 15 sec vs reflex

Well, Paladins and Monks don't have it that bad. The paladin's AoE is not too shabby, all in all, and the healing is an added bonus; Iron Wheel is pretty sweet, for a defensive monk, and the summon doesn't look too bad either; chanters get a level 13 chant that grants 15% draining , party wide... it should provide a fair bit of healing. Also, the chant that grants a shield reduces health loss, it can have its uses, especially if there's more than one chanter in your party. 

Fighters though... they get a modal that basically turns an average enemy AoE into a powerful single target spell... because nothing screams "bastion of defense" like being one-shotted by a fireball, and nothing screams "smart play" like your tank exploding as soon as the enemy mages start slinging their AoE spells. Also, their capstone... it's what, 8 damage/hit if your opponent's DR is >= 8, so if your party can attack him 10 times in that timespan, it's around 80 damage... let's say 100. Since you can cast it twice per fight, let's say it's worth about 200 damage over 16 seconds, that doesn't scale with might. 

That's about as good as a single casting of the dragon thrashed, the dragon wailed, 'cept, you know, single target. 

Pretty "meh" as a level 13 class ability.

 

Also, spellcasters getting 3rd level encounter spells... *cringes*

 

Edit: oh, yeah, and as for barbarians...the barbarian, the class with a talent that increases his damage when he's engaged, now has a class ability that makes him harder to engage... yay synergy!

 

Edit 2: come to think of it, the fighter modal could work hilarously well with withdraw, if it keeps working when the fighter is invulnerable. 

Of course, this means you're not really playing a tank, or playing at all, really, but still...

Shoot twice seems sick.

 

Basically double ranger DPS with bows. Well, not exactly due to accuracy, but almost.

 

Double stunning shots... 1 stun is good but 2 stuns is better... Works well with on-hit effect weapons too. Hahahaha !

 

And if it combines with the Ranger's other thing that makes their shots able to pierce through and hit someone behind (I forget what it's called), you could be doing four shots at once in some cases. That almost makes me want to play Sagani LOL, but everyone else is looking good too, probably still more powerful than Rangers overall. I guess time and more experience will tell, though.

There's an additional level 7 spell for wizard, only available in the grimoire that the boss of Cragholdt drops. It's Concelhaunt's Impending Doom, which creates a hammer above a target for ~15 seconds. Every now and then the hammer strikes, doing damage and knocking the target prone. It does more damage and gets better accuracy every time it attacks.

 

Edit: And yeah, I had Sagani pick up Twin Shot. She does absurd amounts of damage with Stormcaller, and Itumaak regularly crits for around 60. She's ridiculously good... until her pet dies, anyway.

Now that is an awesome idea: spells only learnable through unique grimoires. Sounds like a cool spell, too. IDK how it would compare to a druid's Relentless Storm, though. Maybe better for single target but worse for AoE?

Basically, yeah. Since the accuracy keeps increasing it's not bad against enemies like dragons. Unfortunately the precise numbers aren't shown on the tooltip, so I might have to play around with it for a bit to see how good it is.

 

I would like to mention that Concelhaunt himself used this ability against me, and it was quite painful for poor Aloth.

I thought they were adding some CC immunities. Dragons would seem to be a prime candidate for this, seeing how big and mighty they are and all that, but IDK which enemies actually have them and which don't.

The immunities they added were mostly elemental ones. Adra dragon is immune to corrode, Alpine is immune to cold, Sky to electricity, etc. Dragons can still be affected by prone, stun, paralyze, and petrify. Which is a good thing for me, since most my dragon slayer strategies involve that.

 

Anyway, I did some more testing on Concelhaunt's Crushing Doom, and it seems to have some issues. It lasts a base of 10 seconds, but this increases with int. My Aloth could cast it with a duration of 14 seconds. In those 14 seconds the hammer attacked a total of 6 times (so a bit slower than 1 hit every 2 secs), with base damage starting around 20, and ending around 50. The accuracy increased with each hit... but the problem is its base accuracy was phenomenally low. I had Aloth test this ability against Eder. The first hit had an accuracy of 76, and the last hit had an accuracy of 101. The problem is, when I cast any other spell on Eder, the accuracy was 100. So even though the hammer gets more accurate, its starting accuracy is so low it hardly seems to matter. The prone effect can still be useful, but it uses the same base accuracy.

Adra is immune to acid and Alpine to corrode? Aren't acid effects classified as either corrode or raw?

 

About Crushing Doom, does it always "land," as in, even if the starting accuracy is too low for it to hit with the early hits, will it always successfully cast and keep attempting to hit over its duration?

Oh, I don't mean anything negative by that, I was only joking around with how you mentioned your lack of care for spell casters.

 

But yeah, 3rd level spells being per encounter is pretty much the most powerful new addition. The 7th-level spells are actually pretty underwhelming (Especially Druid) overall. Time Parasite looks insane but that 40 Focus cost makes it almost unusable.
