    from what I saw on the video it reminds me of the Valewalker class from DAoC....which isnt a bad thing, those guys were brutal to fight.

    I'd hope this is a joke. I'd be upset if I was a mage and was given a melee soul

    People say the great thing about mages in their range and the crappiest role in WF's is melee.

    MAYBE IT DOES GOOD DPS ON RAID MOBS.

    They have that cooldown that lets them melee from ranged...

    Haha, this one made me LoL, not just a chuckle, but one of the long belly laughs.

    Check your scorecards -- usually warriors and rogues are 90% (at least) of the top 10 for KB's. Doesn't sound like crappy roles to me.

    He was being sarcastic, talking about all the warriors who overplay how bad being a melee DPS is.

    Also, the rogues topping KBs aren't melee rogues.

    I'm excited for hearig all the souls got a rework especially the loc....cleanse me know...hehe...plus two new tears of abilities on the climb to 60!
    don't know why people are complaining...heck it's new content with new stuff and some rework of the old stuff to bring them up to par....or I guess you could x amount of years like other games to get new content...
    I'm happy.

    Probably good pve soul, probably will get used as secondary for defensive things like the RS is. It probably just offers better ST damage than a pyro at the cost of melee range, and give a few tools (like nb has). If you think the mage calling with 1/9 melee souls is all of a sudden gonna be shutting down warriors toe to toe you are kidding yourself. Just cause they have a melee doesn't mean it's going to be a good pvp soul. Sounds like ranger. Probably good dps and horrible for pvp.

    Now what iam interested in is the melee soul has a teleport that ports back and breaks cc i would love to try it out with a full pyro depending if the port is high up or low in the tree
    Also chrolo's healing looks like is getting fix
    Warlocks are getting a unstable affication like abilty
    The dev said that all the ele and necro buff would scale with eachother so if ele has a branch that increases pet damage it will also increases the nerco pet damage

    As they showed it and talked about it, it's more than a riftblade like soul / pure melee soul. It synergizes with chloro, sc or pyro from what they saw on alpha servers. Melee dps spec with high surviability (as they said) that can proc buffs to reduce cast time on your skills. For example, we saw some quick cinderbursts and instant fireballs. Also, switches between stances for multiple purposes, either heals, offense or half and half. Charge, and a backward blink that removes CC (Kervik said). Ability to use a cooldown to use melee abilities from range. It might be a very good spec for pvp. Oh yeah, the 2h sword stance HAS A 10 SECONDS INVISIBILITY

    Harbinger/sc for AOE. Thank god, that spec can reduce cast time and can counter the biggest issue of stormcaller aka cast times.
