    The big question now is whether it's going to be dps or tank.

    Of course I won't be home at 2.30pm on Friday, I hope someone posts the transcript here.

    The more i think about the difficulties of itemising and balancing a single melee dps soul the more im expecting tank.

    They are all 2H weapons and we are thinking tank is an option still? What is it the old rogue tank where they parry/dodge for their survival? DPS all the way.

    I always expected any mage tank soul to be magical based rather than face tanking - what difference would weapons make?

    I would lmao if a few hours from now Trion sends out another e-mail saying 'oops, we linked the new warrior weapons' - theres some amazing similarities after all.

    They could tank via shields or something like that. I'm pretty sure they could make up some lore for a block/deflect style ability.

    Your so mean!! :P

    But yeh just came home from work, checked mail, blablabla mage soul babla and I saw mage melee weapons... AWESOME!!!!!!

    Maybe the new or lazy people can finally do 111121111211112 rotation and do proper dps on a mage too

    And for myself I hope there will be some melee defile dotting mage spec with an ultra hard rotation

    Or just conjure magical shields. Not an issue at all if it's what they want to do.

    I personally doubt it though. I don't think the other classes would be too happy about it. I'm leaning towards melee dps with some survivability abilities.

    Talk about a told waste of man power to make a new soul for a mage melee.

    That's just disappointing.

    We are ready have a worthless caster melee it's called a Shaman. Why Trion thinks they need another is darn stupid.

    Let's hope it's a troll. melee/mage will just be about as bad as it gets.

    At least it saves me the coin to reset a soul. I guess that's a good thing. Wow that's just bad anyway you look at it. What a waste of dollars to even try and design.
