Orange and Green : A lot of it…

Yesh, the Europe PTR was opened yesterday, and I couldn’t resist the chance of trying the Choppa/Slayer classes ! But what to choose… Slayer or Choppa ? The High-Level armor in the character creation screen decided for me. Fact : Slayers look better on paper. But the Choppa, they just look badass all-around. As I logged in, my screen lag  jumped over the top, there was probably over 50 Choppas in front of that first questgiver in Mount Bloodhorn. Of course, instant queues with only Choppas and Slayers… But aye, a rumble of crazy melee DPS with occasional healing from the only shaman in the group was hella fun. The Berserk mechanic is awesome, fight and become stronger but weaker at the same time. Loads of Orange punks and Green barabarians waging a battle was awesome to witness, I had huge fights in ORvR and did not even know so many players could fit on my screen… I WILL roll a Choppa when Bitter Rivals ends.

The second thing I wanted to check out was the new Rally Cry RVR feature. At first, all you see is a little blue dot shaped like the Scenario Queue button on the bottom of your mini-map, but once it lights up when a player perfroms a Rallying Cry, you get transported to the zone warcamp (well, that’s where we got teleported to) instantly. That feature is gonna be very nifty especially in the higher tiers when keeps need to be defended or if there’s a massive battle going on.

WAAAGH !!

WAAAGH !!

All in all, Patch 1.2 will be very interesting and adds a lot of new fun features to WAR. Choppas and Slayers will definitely be a great addition to the Greenskins and Dwarves.

    As I understand it, the Rallying Cry will only be available on Tier 1 and Tier 2. The higher tiers have mounts =)

    Oh aye ! I forgot about that… At least we’ll get to use it with Keeps in T2… Talking about those new mounts, I heard that Dwarves only get the choice between colors for their Gyro mounts, ouch !
