    I think it is really cool to have a ranged warrior for the first time. Especially considering how many PvP encounters are "ranged standoffs" where any meleer who charges in instantly explodes.

    I hope they keep the ranged aspect alive. They could add follow-up spears similar to paragon's attacks, and change Freeze Armor's bonus to fire damage to a bonus to non-physical damage, to encourage the use of other spears.

    Totally agree, a warrior shouldnt be ranged. but thankfully it gets nerfed in the next patch big time.

    From the next patch notes:

    * Flamespear: No longer has a damage over time component and had its damage values updated.

    Oh I think the class is interesting and a bit of fresh air, but that's not what I was talking about.

    If you still don't have a clue, well, look around the board and engage your brain

    Well if you mean the threads where people somehow decided that they would pick a random percentage to dish out when they compare searing strike to flamespear. Sure the lack of actual facts on this forum is scaring

    The same drugs that said mages/rogues could heal, clerics/rogues can tank and cleric/tanks can dps.

    Taking this from the description of the soul.

    "Able to shoot lances of fire, stone, and wind at enemies, Riftblades possess stronger ranged capabilities than other Warriors. Furthermore, much of their damage is elemental, cutting through armor as if it were flesh."

    "Offensive specialists, Riftblades do not focus much of their discipline on protecting themselves and are vulnerable to concerted attacks. Their magical damage, while devastating against physical defenses, is just as weak as any magic against the appropriate resistances."


    Trion isn't saying that the soul should no longer have any range component, but that it is currently doing more damage then it should be. I hope that the soul can remain effective as it is a nice twist to the warrior calling.

    It's the most ridiculous class i've ever seen, besides a sabatour.. I wanted to roll a mage for ranged DPS, but i might as well roll riftblade, better armor, survivability, and their instant cast skills do more damage than my 2 second casts....

    The idea behind the class is great. I can't tell you how many times people have asked for some sort of spellblade or melee class with spell capabilities, and rifltblade really appeals to this segment. Whether or not you agree with the current magnitude of the class you have to admit it fills in a really unique/solid role.

    I've played both and at lower levels riftblade was 100% doing much more da,age, dont know about later on though, apparently riftblades gonna get nerfed though, so that should make it more even.

    You realize those patch notes are potentially fake right?

    Warriors are the least played class. They need to balance the fact that they are the only calling that doesn't have a real heal soul.
    Guess we could all role rogues.
