Interesting - I play a Chosen, which is the Destruction equivalent to this, and it's fascinating to see how different the two classes can be, despite their obvious similarities.

Blackguard look good but ultimately are pretty awful.

I'm not one of those who got their early access chest. :( So I'd love to hear more. Care to elaborate?

@lagwolf: Couldn't disagree more. With some points in path of malice you got an attack that does ~200 aoe damage (at lvl ~17) and charges in one attack. They can reduce opponents' chances to block or parry with 10% and with 2handers their dps is insane. I'd rather say Blackguards are close to overpowered.

KotBS are moderately nice, being awfully annoying as a BG with all their anti-melee auras. Seen from a Destruction side they look nice though, quite balanced although possibly leaning towards overpowered.

I disagree, I think the Black Guard are going to be great, it's just that too many people rolled a black guard and not all of them can play it well. My only problem is that the hatred system feels like something that got thrown in at the last minute, but all in all I think it's a great character, and the knight of the blazing sun as well.

Wonderful. Many Order players already hate playing the healing class, and its a struggle to keep them as it is. Now with this class if we start losing WP's, then we're all in deep trouble.
