NordInvasion 1.6.1 - Full Client Release - New hero classes!
Good news everyone!
As always, the great Swadian nation has been constantly working to improve our tactics and strengthen our men. There are now four new training options for hero classes: Juggernaut, Hoplite, Repeaterman, and Sentry. Each new hero class has at least one item of each tier: marketplace, personal crafting, house crafting, and legendary. There have been so many legendary items added in recent patches that I've lost count of how many you have left to find. Good luck!
Because existing items were moved to Juggernaut and Repeaterman, every character with a commando or crossbow hero class has been granted a "hero token". This token can be used to exchange your current hero class with another in the same tree at no cost. If you wish to change trees entirely, you may perform a normal character respec and the token will allow you to unlock any hero class with no gold cost (the normal xp requirements still apply). You can view your hero tokens on the settings page of eligible characters.
Better strength training has also been incorporated into the training regiment, particularly wrist exercises. Soldiers can now use the one handed mode of their bastard weapons far more effectively. Even the powerful Mjolnir can, with great strength, be wielded in a single hand. Press X to swap between bastard and one handed mode (Mjolnir switches between two handed and one handed).
For better or for worse, the Grinder Helmets of old have been reprocessed into stronger, lighter bascinets for our soldiers. Legionnaires can make use of these modified helmets.
Juggernaut: the blacksmiths have been hard at work creating stronger armors that push the limits of human endurance. The result is impressive - full suits of heavy hardened steel plates that still allow the users to maintain their mobility. This Hero has been trained not only to use such heavy armors, but also to better use infantry weapons in such an encumbering shell.
Hoplite: it has been made clear that some of the most feared weapons on the battlefield are those with some reach to them. However, sometimes soldiers would prefer the safety of the shield. Our answer are specialized one handed spears partnered with sturdy round shields that allow for superior versatility. The Hoplite has access to specialized spears with high one handed speeds that can be used in two handed mode for a little more speed and power. However, they cannot block in one handed mode, a shield is required.
Repeaterman: increased trade with the east has brought us great new technology. Our repeater crossbows have been fine tuned to have greatly increased accuracy at the cost of taking longer to reload and having a slightly slower shooting speed. Our crossbowmen required specialized training to properly use these powerful new machines of war.
Sentry: for some reason, our archers have always been partial to two handed swords. Some may say it is all in the aesthetic, others say it just feels safe to have a large, sharp piece of metal on your back to ward off nasty assassins. Either way, we have incorporated lessons from our two hand sword specialists to help train these soldiers to use their preferred melee weapons. As an added bonus, lighter, faster swords have been developed that can also be switched into a second mode where soldiers can perform overhead stabs.
