Guardians in Mounted Combat
Well, I want to know your opinions on how it will work for us, Guardians.
Do you guys think the Guardians will wield the shield during the time they are mounted?
We can see in the teaser that the Champions will wield the two swords, and the Guardians?
I want to know what you guys think.
Since we are given new skills for mounted combat, and that some classes have different skills, I think there will be shared patterns between different classes:
A melee DPS pattern for champions, burglars, captains, wardens, guards
A ranged DPS pattern for hunters
A tactical DPS pattern for loremasters, minstrels, rune-keepers
Or more likely there will be a mix and match between some common patterns: A horse attack pattern available to anyone
A melee attack pattern available to champions, burglars, captains, wardens, guards
A basic ranged pattern available to hunters, champions, wardens (spears) and guards
An advanced ranged pattern for hunters only (or they simply get the same subset as champions and guards!)
A basic tactical pattern for loremasters, rune keepers, minstrels and captains
An advanced tactical pattern for loremasters, rune-keepers, minstrels
This way, everyone has three patterns, except burglars but I can't honestly image a stealth burglar on a big war horse...
I think that for the time being mounted combat is mostly a solo thing, so no need for heals, support or tanking. It's mostly a duel mode with different DPS skills chained.
I'm a lvl 35 guard and i think they can use both weapons shield+one handed weapon on mount. I also think they can use two handed weapon a well. I't looked cool in teaser attacking those wargs, uspeshly the champs and hunters but never saw the only saw a gaurd for one sec.I't looks cool
