My friend said something very interesting. Thought I should share with you all.
People thought that sins were overpowered because of stealth - but it turns out they're actually OP because they can't be debuffed.
So people will think the new [ Duskblade ] will be overpowered because of paralyze but they'll actually be overpowered because you can't keep track of their cooldowns.
Just a reminder, here, to everyone to keep their heads level. This community has a tendency to vacillate quickly between opinions, and misinterpret what the future holds.
I don't know about you all, but the new melee class sounds like its going to be very boring to play. Every other class has some luck dependence on their skills, and this new class looks like it's not going to have very much of that. So, I predict that it's going to be like fighting a chess opponent in PvP - with enough knowledge, someone will be able to beat it every time. Oh, and I also think that it's just going to get rolled in mass PvP if it gets targetted.
I might be wrong, of course. But again, so might you.
I'll take a look at the arcane class, but my initial reaction is that it's just going to get trolled by Whirlwind.
