We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Woot.  Finally a class I was destined to play.  So glad to see a 2H'ed class announced for release.  The one thing lacking for me in this game was a class I could call my own.Massively Exclusive - Neverwinter Great Weapon Fighter class revealed

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Logic, reason and fact do not supersede human nature. Ignorance reigns without justice.

There is also a shadow figure at 1:15 that is carrying a bow and arrow standing next to the Great Weapon Fighter.  It may be the next announced class aside from the Divine Cleric.

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

Ranger most likely.  Ranger is in the works and was originally announced but Cryptic was having some issues with the class and are working on whatever it is but it;'s certainly not shelved.

The shadow figure is not a Player Character. It is a NPC named dusty who is dwarf ranger and accompanies the PC on their adventure aiding them.

 

Ranger class is in the works however.

Are these place holder class names during development?

Or are they really going to launch with classes named stuff like "control wizard" and "great weapon fighter"?

Because sounds cheesey.

I just wanted to +1 your comment lol

I'm going to assume they are place holder names... it may help me keep my sanity.

Control wizard, devoted cleric, warpriest, trickster rogue, brawny rogue are the names of recommended builds in 4e PnP.

 

Blame WotC to come up with cheezy names.

It does get better once you hit level 30 and get your paragon path.  With Class names like Iron Vanguard and Knight Protector.  Only have to put up with the cheese for a few levels.

 

Like the above stated AD&D has always been basic and dull on class names as they all stem from the Fighter, Magic-User, Thief, Cleric archtypes.

I don't know what all have been implemented, but in PnP there are PP of "Dread reaper" "sword master" "polearm master" "Kensai" etc. And ofcourse, my favourite - "Silverstar"
