Yeah, I'm cranky. That's kinda the point...

Knight of the Blazing Sun and Black Guard (no, not that one) to Return

WARIn the War Herald this morning, Mythic has announced that two of the classes that were cut from the game during beta will return before the end of the year. It’s interesting that they are announcing this so (relatively) early on in the life cycle of the game.  I’m guessing that the pressure from WotLK is starting to come to bear, and they need to have something to announce at this time as well.

   Let’s start with what we know is some truly exciting news.  I’m happy to announce that in December, the Black Guard and the Knight of the Blazing Sun will officially be part of WAR.  We have very special plans around their appearance and in our next newsletter we will provide full details about that exciting and rather novel event.

I’m looking forward to seeing these classes in the game.  The DE’s need a tank for sure.  It’s going to depend on what they have done with these classes that has improved them from the state that they were in that caused them to be cut.

These careers will have some catching up to do, as a portion of the player base is already arriving at 40.  How many people will re-roll to take advantage of the new careers?  Who knows.  I’m glad to see things making their way into the games though.  Now, can we talk about the Orc Choppa?


  1. This blogosphere gestalt-mind is starting to really freak me out.

  2. Adding new classes should help bolster the mostly dead lower level game, at least for a little while. I am playing in a ghost town at rank 11 most of the time. Scenarios almost never pop for me. It’s enough to make a guy quit.

  3. @Ethic: Before you jump ship, unless you’re on a low pop server, I’d recommend hopping over to a different faction’s zone if you can’t find groups in your area.

    I have a low level High Elf on an Open RvR/RP server. With the relative unpopularity of the race coupled with the fact that most headstart players are busy maxing out their mains, unless I was logged in on a weekend it was pretty lonely on the Blighted Isle–and virtually impossible to get a PQ group going late weeknights past Chapter 2. I flew my character over to the Empire zone which is much more populated and has done wonders for my avatar’s social life.

  4. @Ethic – I found the same to be true. The Chaos starting zone seems to be more popular. I have a baby Magus and a baby DoK. I found that my magus has scenario pops regularly and found groups still in the Chaos starting zone. My DoK can’t get a group to literally save her life. hehe
