I personally can't wait to play this new class. It has that sense of realism and knowing that "live or die" you don't really make much difference in the big picture view of things -- just like real life.
the new class is called: Cannon Fodder, which is so well described in French as:
According to Turbine:"On en était venu à ce point de mépris pour la vie des hommes et pour la France, d'appeler les conscrits la matière première et la chair à canon" -- François-René de Chateaubriand
So, here's your chance to get a real sense of what its like to be trampled by Giants, set on fire by dragons, turned in a soggy pile of dung by wizards and know that yours is not to reason why, yours is to live briefly and die.Experience the Battle for Helm’s Deep – Fight to defend Helm’s Deep starting at level 10, as your character enlists as a soldier in the Battle of the Hornburg, the most massive conflict yet in The Lord of the Rings Online. Earn rewards for your contribution to the war effort – win or lose, your aid makes a difference!
BTW, I have no problem with the announcement at all. But for some reason when this little dwarf read the announcement a picture formed in my head probably a little different than the one which was intended!!
Of course one must remember that this dwarf loved three things above all else in the original EQ:
1) Jumping off very high places to see if dwarves bounce. (scientific analysis)
2) Going fishing in the middle of Giants that were at least 40 levels higher. (Recreation)
3) Seeing how many corpses it took before a big boss would be so confused that you could just walk in and drag the original corpse out of danger. (social interaction with the enemy)
