    Default Stealth warriors = sky falling?

    You can see the warrior vanish. Now, at first I thought this was a rogue soul because we have had stealth since this games inception. Upon closer inspection the dwarf character is in warrior ID skinned armor and wielding a 2h sword.

    "Stealth" and "Bard" Have been common arguments used by forum posters as a means to repress rogues further in the game for some time now. What do you guys think a game where warriors potentially also have stealth will be like? What are some of the pvp ramifications of stealth warriors that you forsee?

    Personally I don't like the idea of a stealth warrior. This game has favored warriors over rogues fairly consistently in both pvp and pve for a majority of its existence. Obviously "stealth" and "bard" have been defining aspects of the rogue calling that help to separate rogues from warriors. I am very apprehensive about the "stealth" aspect of the rogue calling no longer being exclusive.

    I personally am looking to write a vanishing warrior bible to compete with Zyzyx.

    That really doesn't look like stealth to me, it looks like a blink.

    And even if it was stealth, I wouldn't really care.

    If it is stealth, its only some gimp temporary thing. Probably just a blink though.

    Some sort of short duration stealth after a blink would be cool I guess. Unlikely to be anything more that a short duration thing.

    Now my cleric on the other hand is hoping for a melee based, perma-stealth, double runspeed, god form..

    Don't worry, you won't see the sky falling. You'll be dead far too quickly ;p

    It's 35 Meter, ground targetted, stuns anyone it "passes" through, and resets upon taking damge. Also, it's a 4 point root ability in the new soul, with a talent to make it remove debuffs, and make you CC immune for 10 seconds.



    I hate Warriors, and this is all hyperbole.

    It's not stealth. It's also not a blink in the sense that people have mentioned above.

    It's a Mighty Leap kind of blink. Blinks the warrior up into the air, where he prepares a mighty meteor attack, which needs to be shared by at least 4 people, or it will instantly kill all targets in damage range. Warrior is also immune and invisible while in the air. I guess that means the sky is really falling

    If the video was 5 secs longer, you would see the warrior return to the ground, instantly killing the other 3.



    P.S: Warriors don't need stealth. It should remain a rogues unique selling point.

    If it's actual stealth, which I doubt, then rogue combo points should be tied to the rogue, not the target.
