Wow as if Fighters weren't already amazing. Here are the new abilities I've seen so far on fighters. I've barely looked through the classes but fighters seem to have gotten some of the best. 

 

Fearless - level 7 - Immune to Frightened and Terrified. This is amazing against some enemies, dragons anyone? But I doubt I'll ever take it. My priest can simply cast Prayer Against Fear.

 

Charge - level 13 - Wow. This ability is FAST you fly right through enemies to any mob within 10m and it deals a nice chunk of damage. Extremely useful imo. You can get around the battlefield in a flash to protect allies, get to priority targets quickly, etc, etc.

 

Triggered Immunity - I haven't tested this but it sounds ridiculous. If I am interpreting this right, then any damage that hits for 10% or more of your total endurance, your immune to for 15 seconds, and it can trigger twice per encounter. I *think* that the description that reads slash damage is just an example. If so this is godly, if it is only slash, forget it ofc.

 

This is going to give me a real headache! Charge is very nice, but I do love me some Sundering Blow. I feel like in most builds though I will just rely on other avenues of DR reduction and take charge. Its so just fun!

 

Everyone please tell about your experiences.

 

Also noticed rogues got a new ability, Permanent Distraction. So basically a rogue can now get two qualifiers for sneak attack totally by themselves just by flanking an enemy, and apply a nice debuff while at it. Zoinks.

I think Charge is actually pretty bad unless you have a dedicated backline killer fighter, because usually you want to keep your fighter between the enemy and your backline but charging would mean going through the enemies. Some enemies already ignore frontliners pretty hard and by charging through them they don't even have to walk around you.

charge seems useless for an ability that is such high level.

 

it might be useful early game but late game ur characters are so strong and have so many cc and nukes that they dont need fighters to tank for them.

But I really need those new Barbarian abilities!

 

10-15 raw retaliate on melee hit and killing blows having no recovery sounds sweet.

 

Edit: Hand of Weal and Woe and Ectopsychic Echo keep working when you leave the initial range of the spell when it is cast.

it's 8-12 base i think and that sounds pretty damn good. but really? reset on kill sounds good? i thought it's utter and total garbage what am i missing here? Also frigging Echoing shout thingy and it's daze. Dragon leap already has daze did barbarian really need another one? also the bounce is pretty hard to aim because you don't get the ground marker for that.

Rangers got an interesting one for firearms. It's a modal that makes you shoot in a cone dealing burn damage. The cone size depends on the firearm you use. Blunderbuss has a short and wide, pistol and arquebus have longer but narrower one. It also blinds you for a while when you shoot for some reason. Rangers also got a heal pet and revive pet (i think those are new) and feign death for the pet also.

What about my rogue? :(

 

Shadow Step: Teleport to another possition on the battlefield, and then automatically teleport back to where you started after 'a few moments'. 1 per encounter.

 

Feign Death: Like the Play Dead ability ranger has for its pet but for the rogue itself. 1 per encounter.

 

Constant Distraction: When rogue is flanking someone, they are also automatically distracted. Passive.

i don't get Shadow Step. What are you supposed to use it for? You can't use it to escape because you'll just teleport back to where you started and you can't really use it to get to the backlines because again you'll teleport back to where you started. How long does it take before you teleport back and what can you accomplish in that time?

Also didn't Feign Death make you invisible when you get up? and it's per encounter? Backstabbing for everyone?

Does distracted -6 defense stack with other defense (and deflection debuff) ?

Debuff stacking has never been really clear for me.

 

 

By the way, which level are abilities like Shadow Step ?

Downside is that they're actually ranged weapons so no melee only attacks while it's active.

Avenging Storm sounds really nice for my druid tank. Maybe I should also give him all my retaliation items... :)

yea but who needs to spam torment when your base damage is so high. just stack turning wheel and lightening strikes and high might and u can prob easily get 50+ damage from non crits.

sounds pretty terrible actually. How often do you get a disengagement attack? Not very often and it's only a 5 second prone on a class that can somewhat dump int. Though it does mention damage and accuracy bonuses but not how big they actually are.
