Two New Hibernian Classes Revealed

Two New Hibernian Classes Revealed - Dark Age of Camelot -

Those keeping an eye on the upcoming Catacombs expansion for Dark Age of Camelot can visit the official site to read about the new Hibernia classes that will be available - the Vampiir and the Bainshee.

First is the Vampiir (not Vampire), which sounds like a cross between a swordsman and a variety of caster classes:

The Vampiir class is a fighter who wields a one-handed piercing weapon in its right hand. While in melee combat, it is able to cast Vampiir magic with the left hand. The class does not have a normal power pool, however. It will gain power from a variety of attacks - primarily melee strikes. The class receives Safefall and Climb Walls, as well as a passive form of health regeneration. Vampiiric magic comes in three categories or spell lines: "Self Enhancement" spells such as parry, evade, run speed, magic and melee absorption bonuses; "Offensive Damage" spells such as Lifetaps, Flame Strikes, and a special ability to turn the left hand into a claw for further melee attacks; and "Utility" spells such as a single target mez, snare, Lull Enemies, and effectiveness debuffs.

Then there is the Bainshee, which is basically a screaming woman:

The Bainshee class is a cloth wearing class whose magic comes in the form of sound, and may only be played by female avatars. The class has three specialization lines, each line with spells focused in one of three areas: Point Blank Area of Effect, Ranged Area of Effect, and Cone Area of Effect. The Bainshee will be a class that debuts many unique magical abilities never before seen in the lands of Camelot. These include: a Befriend PBAE spell that will temporarily turn monsters into realm guards who will then attack any pursuing enemies for a short time; a ranged AE wail which, when sustained, can be used to reduce the visibility of enemies in an area; a Buffering Breath spell (a damage absorption buff) that will absorb a certain amount of spell damage for group members; and finally, is a PBAE shriek that causes nearby monsters to try and (temporarily) flee from the Bainshee until she finally stops to breathe.

There are so many potential jokes about a female-only character who uses her voice as a weapon, that I'm just going to let you roll your own. :-D  Check out the new classes at the official Dark Age of Camelot Catacombs website.
