Careers: Goblin Squig Herder

Careers: Goblin Squig Herder -

EA Mythic's Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning has released information and screenshots for two of the careers that will be available in the game. This one, the Goblin Squig Herder is certainly one to look at:

Squigs! Need I say more? Well I suppose I should. The Squig Herder was an easy choice when it came to Goblin careers. If the Squigs themselves weren’t enough, the notion of a small green man herding these toothy blighters about with nothing more than a whistle and a bag of treats was an easy sell. The principle of the Squig Herder is simple – take a Goblin and just add Squigs – but we needed to focus on the role he would play. We wanted to make sure that he was a valuable warrior who fulfilled an important need, and that need was dealing damage

“…an’ dis one’s Chompy! Chompy’s a right devil he is! Rip a bugger right in two! See dis scar ‘ere on me arm? Dats ol’ Chompy’s ‘andywork! I’mna go grab ‘im… ”
- Greenstumps, Goblin Squig Herder

One-on-one a Squig is no match for the likes of a Hammerer or Ironbreaker, but the problem there isn’t the match, it’s the numbers. The toothy embrace of a pack of Squigs has brought down many a hearty warrior, and a Squig pack is never more effective than in the hands of an expert Herder. Using tools ranging from pipes to goads to bits of giblets, the Squig Herder drives his minions to a killing frenzy while fighting safely behind the lines. The Herder’s own ranged fire combines with the attacks of his minions to challenge any foe.
