Human players looking for a new character class to try out will be interested to hear that Beastmasters will be joining Nosgoth after next week's update. Beastmasters, in addition to their more mundane skills with firearms and primal magic, have the ability to turn into a bird of prey in the hunt for Vampires.
The most infamous call themselves Beastmasters or Skinwalkers, forging cruel bonds with the wild creatures of Nosgoth, usurping their senses or stealing their forms. Even though most people simply call them by the name of their best-known members, and while as a group they usually disdain official titles, they have collectively become known as the Scourge of the Wild.
