I'll go into detail on the other classes in another thread so we can keep the discussions between each class separate and easy to read. There will be a bigger post on all the other stuff coming with the update as well.

As a thought, could you not do something like wow do for some updates with a new class - allow you to level one toon only (within a time limit) to a certain level - so they start in vile realm at the beginning of that quest line for example. They still then have option of questing new toons from l1 but have one toon at least vile capable?

No WoW instant level to max level. Wouldn't really be a point to do that since we don't have new quests or raids at the end game in this next update. Enjoy the beginning of the game again that you haven't seen in some time. PvP should be a fun experience too at the lower tiers as players level their new characters.

Looking forward to the update. Any chance on getting the app offers to work on Android devices. Gonna have to buy all those sigils again with GS.

I know it's ran through a third party service but it would be nice if those offers were available.

Since the new mage is a Spirit/Poison hybrid and the new justicar is Ice, I'm guessing the new walker is Fire.

What's Hypothermia? Is that the same as the Cold Effect mentioned earlier?

What's Fury?

After thinking about the descriptions, I think the physical build is going to be much better at OS than the ice build. Physical has a Bleed plus Crit Eye.

I am definitely more excited about the physical build. It is a combo of the justi and sw physical builds. The ice build is close enough to the ice mage build that I don't think it offers that much that is new.

Disclaimer: I could be completely wrong. I remember initially think Assassinate was stupid.

Flurry(ability name) states that it deals physical damage but also causes hypothermia(ice damage over time). Is this a typo? Seems odd a physical atk would cause magic type damage. Please clarify Chem, thanks!

Fury gives a boost in damage output while up.

Yes, Flurry causing Hypothermia which is an ice damage over time spell. Try to not think of the new classes as a "physical build" and "magical build" separations. While you can certainly play with just physical or just magical abilities, these classes were designed to mainly be hybrids and combined their skills together to get the advantage in battle.

It's all up to you on how you want to play the classes. If a Frost Knight that's not so frost is your thing then put points into just physical abilities and leave Flurry out of your build. If you want to go full Ice, maybe add Flurry into your build for an extra attack and proc Hypothermia on your enemies for extra Ice damage.

I think you will enjoy Flash Freeze if you enjoyed Assassinate. There's plenty of abilities there to take advantage of a randomly frozen target. :)
