Oh I like!!! DAoC Valewalker coming to Trion near you!
Valewalkers are cloth-wearing Hibernian mages who are given the ability to wield a large Scythe as a weapon. They are the strong arm of the Sylvan community - they are the primary fighters of this natural magic-using people. Valewalkers wear mage-like cloth robes, which they can augment by casting armor-absorption and armor factor self-buffing spells. They also can evade and parry attacks.
Valewalker combat styles center around their magical nature, and augment their scythe's damage with magical effects.
Just take a look at the spells, can you say... Harbinger!! I love the idea!!!
