The Relentless Struggle Continues!
Early in February, the forces of Empire and Chaos clashed in bloody frays from Norsca to Nordland and beyond. Players who participated were able to get a taste of PvE and RvR content for the Empire and Chaos pairing in Chapters one through nine. Other content included Open World RvR, Evolved Career Mechanics, Career Masteries, Keep Warfare, New Battlefield objectives, and Zone capture and control.
The Witch Hunter
The Empire is not just under overt assault from the forces of Chaos, but is also fighting a constant war against the creeping incursions of darkness and heresy within its own borders, and no one is more aware of this than the Witch Hunter. Tasked with digging out the taint of corruption from within the healthy flesh of the Empire, the Witch Hunter is a grim figure, looked upon with equal measures of awe and dread, for they have the authority of an investigator, a judge, and an executioner. By blade, pistol, and torch, they are determined to cleanse the Empire of evil.
The Witch Hunters are deadly fighters who seek out and destroy anything tainted by the touch of Chaos. They lay down Accusations at swordpoint until they're satisfied of their enemy's guilt, and then unleash an Execution with the booming voice of their pistol. Their combat abilities are bolstered by a variety of sacred artifacts, such as blessed bullets which add additional effects to their Executions, and potent Holy Relics which can briefly imbue them with great power.
