    Default Is this another class we haven't heard of?

    Just wondering around the website for the millionth time, and I end up on the "planes" section. If you look at the right side, there is an animation (like the classes), and he doesn't seem to be characterized like any classes we know of yet.

    If you look into the code of the site, the flash animation is named "death_male_nidal"
    looked around, the word "nidal" is nothing I've heard of.

    maybe another class?

    Could possibly be an NPC, but most of the NPC animations have it labeled.

    Perhaps it's a Defiant warrior-type of class... my first thought was that it was a Defiant blade dancer, but that doesn't really look like an "edged" weapon, from what I can tell...

    “They say you are to be the greatest hero in a past I’ll never know. Learn this, and it shall be so:
    Let the only fear you ever know be the fear you inspire in your foes.
    If you can do that in your heart, glory will follow you.”

    From defenitions of the word "Nidal", this could be easily an NPC

    A point or place at which something originates, accumulates, or develops, as the center around which calculi form.

    A place where something originates or is fostered or develops
    specif : the point of origin or focus of an infection or disease process


    but its hard to say

    Yea, I considered him a reaver at first, but the sword and armor throws it all off.

    There are a lot of concept arts and random images around that one could assume are announced classes. It's hard to speculate though with so little to go by.

    He definitely has the Reaver thing going for him. I'd just assume he's some random npc until more is known though. Maybe Aedraxis himself.

    High probability it is an Assassin. Already identified as a class.

    Also it's amusing to poke around the fan kit:

    There are potions, ingredients and minerals and lots of art - one of which has to be the Paladin (though will probably be called something different - given the new lore direction).

    He really doesn't look like a reaver...
    No shield, armor is leather as far as I can tell...
    Not a reaver.

    He looks like a leather wearer to me, so any tank for me doesn't make sense.

    Why does a berserker have to be a tank? Maybe it's a DPS-type berserker.

    Because when anyone says beserker it will be compared to the beserkers we have in other MMO's were they where plate wearers :P not saying beserker can't be a leather wearing DPS class but most people will say TANK. So probably a bad name for a dps type berserker anyway. On the other hand my idea of a beserker is a class that does more dmg the more enraged he gets, so from that point of few a class that gets hit (tank) is fairly obvious.

    If it says 'Death_Male_Nidal', then it's quite feasible he's a servant of Regulos. And that weapon is edged I believe Bella, it's certainly a sword with a bulbous handguard.

    It could be a low level Reaver put looks some what like a blade dancer but hard to tell could be a new class tho.
