The Black Orc and The Ironbraker -

The good folks over at Mythic's Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning have released details on two tank classes that will appear in the upcoming game. The first is a class from the Greenskin race (Gobins and Orcs). The Black Orc. The second, from the race of Dwarves, are the Ironbreakers:

The Black Orc - Greenskin Tank Class

The Black Orc is a huge, hulking brawler who fights dirty and operates on the philosophy that the best defense is a good offense! Heavily armed with choppa and shield, he can face any foe unshaken.

The Black Orc Specialty:

  • Brawler
  • Attacks with any and all tools available: fists, feet, elbows, weapons, and any other spiky bits at his disposal
  • Attacks are designed to jar, disorient, or otherwise disable the enemy; these conditions leave the enemy vulnerable to even more damage

Playing as a Black Orc:

  • Combat revolves upon engaging one enemy at a time
  • As a front line fighter, he is well-equipped to withstand enemy attacks
  • His greatest strength is the ability to disable his primary opponent
  • Jarring blows and unexpected attacks exploit openings and reduce enemies' ability to fight back

Fighting Black Orcs:

  • Know your enemy and his abilities; selective engagement is key
  • Counter his attacks to keep him from reaching the potential of his deadly power
  • Don't even try to get around him; maneuver to break his chain of attacks and decrease his performance

The Black Orc Look:

  • Fully armored in heavy armor (with lots of spikes)
  • Large very heavy shields (also with lots of spikes)
  • Choppas and great choppas (with spiky bits stuck on)
