Cryptic Studios dropped their newest class trailer and decided gamers wanted to see more faces smashed than in previous NeverWinter videos. Enter the “Great Weapon Fighter.” While the name may sound cheesy, don’t be fooled or confused.
This class is your typical 2 handed weapon class that most MMO players are already used to seeing. Designed for damage dealing and maybe some off tanking if your tank happens to hit the mat, the Great Weapon Fighter is slower than other classes but deals impressive damage. Attacks seem to be based on a standard “charge” type mechanic (i.e. hold a button to charge and deal more damage) but watching the daily ability and seeing a hulking character throw a two handed sword just seemed fun.
As we get closer and closer to actually getting to play NeverWinter, these trailers continue to showcase a nice blending of some mainstay MMO staples and some POTENTIAL new and creative ideas. Will Cryptic and Perfect World Entertainment deliver on the hype? We’ll have to wait and find out.
