I guys,

I have been thinking about rolling a new Hib char but I can't really make up my mind if I should go for a blademaster or a hero.
Any suggestions on what would be the most interesting choice (never played hero nor a blademaster).
Thanks in advance for your input.

Cheers,

Martin.

bm pops bubble, champions kill all

heroes are an obsolete class, may aswell delete it :p

i disagree

heros are as much use as a BM or champ in RvR if not more if played right

Besides a hero with ML8 Bodyguard is great to have in a grp

Heros also solo extremely well in RvR

Do not underestimate slam - in RvR is unbelievably usefull and fooking owns - especially if you are specced shield/LW - slam and use LW back style - they dead.

champs and BMs are great too

But i would roll a hero - not only for RvR leetness but also for PvE leetness :)

just my opinion :)

hope this helps

while a champ has to run behind them first and use the style, which appearently is basically impossible!!111

heros should get some loving imo raised weap dmg and skill like mid warriors or something ... might be nice seeing lots of heros running around again .... would at least make some ppl think twice before rolling one of em fotm BMs .. but then as u see in mid its still those nasty duaal wielders that get the spot first... gimp charge=P=P anyhow im loving my hero mostly just pveing but will rvr when i toa him and hit 50 .... i think ill still be able to get grps but thats just cause AoP is a great guild=d

hero is a decent class imo but champ and bm will usually be a bit better.

my hero`s spec is 50spear 42shield 34blades and 20parry.
tbh its an awesome spec for rvr..
slam then use 3chain back style, if they not dead keep shield in hand and use the 2chain block style in blades...
no more nasty alb/mid after that :clap:

bm is the <drool>

Side chain all the time (which is good vs casters, stealthers AND melee classes) gives stun then 15 tick bleed then strongest attack speed debuff in ze game :D (for a style) then if the bastards try to run, snow shower the shit of them, boohoo, dead anything :cheers:
they pop bubble and still hit (gotta love that offhand) and have high hp, roll a shar BM, pure ownage hehe (375str with aug str 1 not capped <loves himself>) crazy damage, especially with MoPain 3, crits of 250+ all the time, i'm easily killing fully ToA'd noob casters in 3 hits, and i don't have charge (cuz i'm stoopid)

heh, the thing is that champs aren't superiour because of their damage :p

its mainly banelord spells being extremely powerful, their ra's bordering on being overpowered, insta debuffs that cripple someone more than you might imagine, dd/snare to interrupt with, etc

hero has a bit higher weaponskill and bodyguard, champs are an offensive tank with MUCH more tools than a hero :p

it's not that heroes are crap, but they're more defensive than champs. and there's very few heroes that know when to swap from offence to defence (and back!)
