    Default Paragon - the possible Monk class?!

    As the title says looking at the icon for the Paragon it kinda looks like a hand strike in there. Could it be the hand to hand combat class!? Anyone else see it or am I just going crazy and I'm getting too psyched about it but man I hope so!

    I thought I read the Paragon was a dual wielding warrior soul.

    Source? Because the class list screenshot is the first any of us have seen or heard about the Paragon, Void Knight, and Riftblade I would think. And the Champion icon looks more dual wield friendly than the Paragon icon which doesn't look like a weapon at all.

    My guess is the Paragon will be based around Spears, or perhaps Spear and Shield, sort of lika a Phalanx.... who knows though!

    par·a·gon
       /ˈpærəˌgɒn, -gən/ Show Spelled[par-uh-gon, -guhn]
    –noun
    1. a model or pattern of excellence or of a particular excellence.

    If they go by definition then that sounds quite monkish. But then we also have:

    2. Printing . a 20-point type

    So maybe it's a class that likes to type in a 20 point font?

    Damn it we need more info!

    To me, Paragon sounds more Paladin related, but maybe that's some VG lingo crossing over.

    The icon looks like a fish wrapped around a stick. Maybe this is the fishing soul we've been asking for?

    Both the paragon and the warlord look like they have fist icons to me. paragon sounds like a "monk" and warlord sounds like a "bruiser". How many of us who played eq2 would have liked to combine those classes and take the best of each? its not a long stretch considering Scott's and some others dev's resumes.

    In EQ the beastmaster was also a hand-to-hand class who could use some weapons. So in my mind theres the 3 souls for a "martial arts" type character. Of course the beastmaster, since it could use other weapons in EQ would also compliment the other warrior types as well.


    But if i was a guessing man, both paragon and warlord are for sure martial art types.

    Here's hoping it's a monk class, there's enough sword/spear/axe classes already announced. Need more kung fu.

    I'm hoping for a dual-wielding warrior soul.

    Man if there was only a thread titled "The Classes Thus Far (Class List)" people wouldn't have to ask the same question all the time.
    Oh wait...

    Paragon actually sounds like an advanced class. Well at least the name to me infers a soul that has surpassed others in terms of training, skill, and ability a Warrior that has reached the pinnacle of mastering his profession.

    Though I very well maybe wrong, because I have no real grasp on what is truth when it comes to base souls and advanced souls.
    As I have not read where it clearly states that advanced souls are part of visible 8 or they will be in addition to the 8 and unveiled once they are discovered in game.
