Massively got the scoop on the latest class reveal to come from Neverwinter. Cryptic Studios unveiled the Great Weapon Fighter – rather than the Guardian Fighter – for its upcoming action-oriented MMORPG earlier today. The class is clad in medium or heavy armor and equipped with a Cloudesque two-handed sword. Despite the strong armor options, the class makes more use of its sword than its defenses.
Primarily a damage dealer and secondary defender, the great fighter is a benefit to have on your side in any situation. Spells like Roar, Slam and Avalanche of Steel offer a variety of support techniques including slows, knockbacks and crowd control.
Check out a handful of screenshots on the Great Weapon Fighter and the official reveal trailer after the cut.
