Head to the blog for a look at the next Human class - the Shield Bearer. We run through the history of the class, as well as showing off concept art of the default appearance, and the alternate skins.

Corsair is definitely the best all around. I'm torn between the character and the shield, I like the character from the Ravager's Helmet but I like the shield on the Mark of the Survivor.

Question: those are all the weapon alternatives in the concept art as well.

If that is true then we got 5 weapons to choose from, not 4 like with the others.

Could the shield be the weapon and the flay weapons be the part that is bound to the skin, Please let that be the case.:worship:

Looks amazing ... but their Tyrant player Morgan is right, the knockdown on shield charge seems really dumb.

Sorry. The shield is bound to the skin, the axe is bound to the variant of weapon.

It's okay, one more thing to look forward to if mix & match skins ever happens. I can't wait to go toe to toe with this guy against a Tyrant. I hope he says some crude insults and taunts in his quotes.

Good information in the blog :D really interesting and really like the alternative skins they look cool - much more fitting. Though I'm still not sold on the Shield Bearer name and I 'd still like to officially know how they got magic shields that heal members of their team :p

Perhaps the magic is derived from pagan rituals.

Disappointed to see that no effort was put into where he hides his large supply of Kamas. They just automatically appear in his hand. Even having them connected to a bracer via chain with a retractable "pully" of sorts, or having his stock on the side of his shield within his hand reach. I just want to get this in before he's done and released. I hate magicians in games where they make **** appear from thin air.

I am absolutely loving the look of these. We finally got someone main lining some serious tattoos, it's straight up yakuza.

initiates of militaristic mystery cults looking for new secrets


My bad – I think this part technically fills that boat so I’ll shut up about it now heh. :p

Yeah - even if he just had a couple attached to him would improve the believability of it.

Maybe the reload anim could have him call/pull the axes back to him or something.
