The Dark Templar

Posted by Keith Cross on May 29, 2007  | Comments

The Dark Templar -

The lands of Hyboria can be harsh and cruel, forging dark souls with connections to even darker powers. One such soul is that of the Dark Templar, a warrior who gains power from making a pact with evil, and the subject of the most recent class preview for Age of Conan.

By going into a pact with such a dark being - be that an evil god, a wrathful demon or any other source of twisted power - the Dark Templar is able to draw upon immense strength and vitality. This power, however, certainly comes at a price as it binds the Dark Templar into painful worship demanded by the dark entity in return for their approval.

In essence, the Dark Templar is an evil fighter. By drawing upon these powers rooted in death and darkness, they are able to stand at the forefront of battles and take punishment that may have crippled a fighter of more ordinary skill. You see, whereas other members of the soldier class usually believes more in the importance of tactical fighting styles and the mastery of weapons in order to survive a fight, the Dark Templar has no qualms about tapping into dark, supernatural powers in order to secure victory for him and his team.

Taking punishment is a big part of the Dark Templar's job and mastering light, medium and heavy armor is crucial to his success. By being able to equip some of the most protective armor available, he is able to fulfill his role as one of the members of the group most likely to be put in the front where the enemy's damage can be directed at him.
