    Default Rift Blade and Void Knight info

    I must have missed this link when it originally hit http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gc...-planes/703481 (I'm sure its elsewhere on the forums)

    I was able to read the following talents, but missed some he moused over briefly. Please feel free to add to or correct these.

    Rift Blade:

    Tier 1 talents:

    Elemental Prediction (5 points) - Increases Hit Chance and Critical Chance of elemental attacks by 1% (per level)

    Tier 2 Talents:

    Elemental Fury (5 points)- Increases the damage of [3 abilities] by 1% (per point)

    Burning Blood (5 points) - When you are struck by a critical hit in melee combat, your burning blood deals back 16% (per level) to the attacker as Fire Damage

    Tier 3 Talents

    Improved Fork (1 point) - Your Fork ability now hits an additional target

    Elemental Resistance (5 points) - Reduces damage from elemental attacks by 3% (per level)

    Void Knight

    Tier 1 Talents:

    Pain Tolerance (5 points) - increases maximum health by 1% (per point)

    Insatiable Hunger - When you hit a target that uses mana with a <something> attack, you gain a x% chance of draning the target's mana and gain a pact.

    Tier 2:

    Rift Tap (1 point) - The next spell that hits the Void Knight causes damage back to the caster. Lasts 30 seconds. Damage seems to be based on the number of attack points?

    Surge ( 5 points) - Increases damage of Discharge, Unstable <something> and Tempest by 2% (per point)

    Ravenous Strength (5 points) - Increases Strength by 5% (per point) for 5 seconds when a Pact is gained

    from that video you can postulate the Void Knight is comparable to the WoW Death knight... you know a tank who "bones mages"
    "Few are selected to to gaze into the chasm that gave us our power, most are devoured from within, yet a chosen few have the will to walk away from such discord and torment with the true knowledge of what we serve. Transformed with eyes of pure hatred, of utter disdain, bound to its will, the embodiment of a demon. And I, the greatest of its children, am here to show you true pain..." -Maerawn

    Sounds like a pact is some sort of debuff / link which you can put on a mob by using certain abilties. Once you put that pact on that strength buff hits you for 25% str for 10 seconds.

    Interesting, this might end up being a different tanking class.

    I'm wondering if a pact is just a warrior 'attack point' but in warrior land these points aren't shared between souls. Unlike Rogue combo points, which we know are shared. Or it's just a separate counter for the Void Knight.

    Given some other class information leaked out at GamesCom, I would assume it's class specific. Attack Points are Attack Points

    Popular trend in recent MMOs, to create class individuality, is self-buffs that a class has to gain, manage and use.

    Well, between me an Xilith, it looks like we have everything covered, and with a bit of overlap. There's only one missing point from the Void Knight tree they showed, but it was directly under the glare, so only 5 words are visible, and they don't necessarily make sense.

    Rank 0/1

    Rift Tap
    Rank 0/1
    10 Energy
    Instant

    1 Point: 13 Air Damage
    2 Points: 22 Air Damage
    3 Points: 32 Air Damage

    Surge
    Rank 0/5
    Increases damage of Discharge, Unstable Reaction and Tempest by 2%.


    Riftblade Tree

    Tier 2

    Elemental Efficiency
    Rank 0/[3?]

    Reduces the energy cost of Searing Strike, Thunder Strike and [?] Strike by 5.

    [?] Armor
    Rank 0/1
    30 Energy
    20 Meter range
    Instant

    The target's armor [bonuses?], [?] for 50% movement speed. Lasts 15 seconds.


    Tier 3

    Earth Burst
    Rank 0/1
    15 Energy
    Instant

    The [?] ability attack cause earthquake dealing Earth damage to target and 2
    [adjacent?] enemies. In addition to [stunning?] them for 3 seconds. Lasts 15
    seconds:

    2 Points: 45 Earth Damage
    3 Points: 64 Earth Damage


    Void Knight Root Abilities

    Well that would be more interesting, and probably easier to balance since you can't get points cheaply with one soul, and consume them for something awesome on another soul.

    Honestly, I think Attack Points are going to be shared between the souls, as all three souls have Point consuming spells. The Void Knight just seems to have an added Pact system. Look at Ravenous Strength, it triggers when you gain a pact, so I'm guessing that's how multiple abilities for the VK will work.

    May even be a mix! Oh the possibilities!

    No thinking needed, they are (for Warriors).
