View Full Version : DLC shield heroes

07-24-2018, 02:34 AM
So as the title implies, are there any ideas the team has for new shield heroes? Because although we started with some there hasnít been a sliver of talk about a possible shield character added to the game. I simply think it would be nice to see another one. And I think they have several opportunities in the future.

The two biggest opportunities I see is 1. in the wu Lin faction additional two they have to get to be equal and 2. A potential crazy cent rework.

What do you guys think about this topic?

Honestly, this could have potential with working in a heavy/hybrid as the two off classes they introduce, make them both shield bearers and can fight in sync with each other. I think that would be really interesting and possibly help start promoting some more interesting 4v4 match ups.

I have one: a knight hero using a spear and a big pavese shield.
I already said it in another post made by me, so I'll copy-paste it:
The Spearman

He's basically a knight with a big pavise shield and a spear (longer than the valkyrie's one).
For the move set, he would probably have a guard stance like the warlord or the conqueror, but he could also be able to perform light/heavy attacks while holding it, but only in one direction (probably right). He could also be able to interrupt his stance with a small charge that will keep him protected from all the attacks from the front (because he's holding his shield in front of him), after which he can perform either a light attack or press guard-brake to keep bashing.
