Iirc they said the players want new classes so there is a chance that there will be new classes in the expansion.Ryuno said:I dont think they will add more classes this time.
Hopefully from whats been said previously in interviews, we'll see some additions/improvements to RvR.

What i get: a 3rd support class with like nukes and styles and..and...a staff! (aka friar) ^^
HmmmMythic said:They plan to launch the expansion on their 5 year anniversary later this year.
At this time, they’re actually ramping up development on DAoC again. New hires are coming their way. The expansion will be distributed online, while there will also hopefully be a retail bundled edition DVD.
In the immediate future, 1.84 will see the first few tradeskill changes. Their goal is to make it more user-friendly to start. Then, this fall, they’ll make large changes so that it is fun and useful. That said, they’re intensely aware that they do not want to invalidate the work done by others in the old system.
The 1.84 patch is also being used to clean up a lot of little things. For example, the class changes they’ve done recently are being revisited again to add and fix a little more.
They also plan to focus in on bolts. There is a lot of talk about them and Mythic worries they’re not being used as intended and are having a detrimental effect on RvR. As it finally reached the top of their balance heap, they’re thinking of changing it so bolts only fail when cast on someone already involved in hand-to-hand melee combat. They want them to be an opening gambit, a long range RvR strike. They’re not supposed to be used close up. However, some view them as too hard to use and, as such, refinements must be made.
You can't really run without endurance if its a tank grp. Paladin is ok char, dont get me wrong, but he is in a group only for endurance. Any other tank would do all the other stuff he does better than him if it wasnt for end. imho.Thadius said:Quite balanced as it is now
They said to make paladins and valewalkers more desirable in rvr
What a load of cack, every alb group runs with a paladin and on classic, most hib groups run with a valewalker
