    To answer your questions about the Reaver, I'm working on it right now. Expect a new thread on Monday with all the details on what is changing and hopefully a PTS update soon after with the changes in place.

    Also, Paladin and Void Knight will be getting some rework as part of the Reaver revamp. Focusing mostly on the lower tiers to make them more appealing to hybrids and a few QoL changes.

    Spoilers:

    Void Knight:

    Accords will no longer be tied to the amount of pacts that you have. They will provide flat bonuses for each buff.

    Reaver:

    Shadow Strike: Talent - Dire Blow and Ravaging Strike now deal X% additional Death damage for each Reaver damage over time effect on the target.

    All though I am pleased to get some feedback from you saying that it is being addressed, I am reluctant to believe that we will see any of this in the near future. It's been 7 months since the idea was pitched and we havent had a single PTS update to test your ideas.

    Best of luck though. It's got to suck to be in your shoes. If it's not better than the other souls everything you did will be a complete waste of time. If it is to much better then the rest of the souls get ignored for the new FOtM.
    The above post is most likely cynical, sarcastic, offensive, rude, unnecessary, and informative. I apologize for any information gained from said post. It was meant purely to be cynical, sarcastic, offensive, rude, and unnecessary.

    Does this mean reaver will be... melee? That's so out of the box for trion, but would make me very happy if it's true. :P

    Vladd, you said my favorite word, hybrid. I'm incredibly excited for these changes, looking forward to Monday!

    Yes, the Reaver is getting the same treatment as the Stormcaller and Pyromancer.

    Are there any plans to introduce power/mana draining properties to VK like it had with Power sink?

    I like where your going with this. so the play style is going to be stack dots then spam builders and finishers, as long as you put an ability to refresh only the dots you cast, this play style wont be to tedious. if I got to re-cast each dot every 15s that mite be to much of a dps lost to justify shadow strikes damage bonus. looking forward to reading your update on monday.
    mixing up role ideals is what rifts all about, changing and adapting makes the game what is today. don't shun change, embrace it.

    He said he's making it a range aoe soul, so Dire Blow and Ravaging Strike mite be range like skyfall and shock pulse. if ravaging strike doesn't get a name change then they mite still be melee abilities.

    unlikely. the changes to voidknight and paladin are about mitigation not about debilitation. those type of utility's are better for dps souls then tank souls.

    When he said that, he said it was still a rough sketch and could easily change. Then I remember the warrior community begging Vladd to not let that happen. Hopefully though the idea Vladd has isn't stand back and shoot death spells but get in the fight and use Plague Bringer to spread diseases to everyone within X amount of meters.

    Honestly, I'm hoping to see the glory days of Plague Bringer where you just toggled it.

    Funny you should mention that... Plague Bringer is still there and it's back to a toggle. It was one of my favorite things about the original Reaver.
