    anyone notice the human? Weapons, new purple abilites, close combat, is definitely not a warrior, looks like he's wearing rouge-ish leather armor? :D

    The stealth class has actually been teased before, in the Friends and Family Update video from last year, starting at 1:15 or so.

    Really hoping we'll learn more about this class next week, along with the Dominion!

    They've also shortly showed a human with a rifle in the housing video.

    I'm hoping that the rifle was a different spellslinger spec

    So, figured I'd gather some visual intel on our Rogue friend from the videos today! Primarily the Soldier video.

    [​IMG]
    Here, we get a good close-up view of his weaponry. He dual-wields a pair of wrist-mounted blades used for slashing attacks.

    [​IMG]

    Afraid this one's rather poor, it's hard to capture in a single screen, but here the human leaps up in a spinning blade attack, either using his wrist weapons or perhaps throwing something? Either way, all of his attacks seem to be accompanied by this purple lighting, just like the warriors have been orange and the Espers blue.

    [​IMG]

    In this sequence, he attacks with a series of slashes as he charges towards his target, a bit like Wolverine from X-Men.

    [​IMG]

    And here we see him leaping towards his target...

    [​IMG]

    To finish with a big swoop!

    I definitely look forward to seeing more of this class in action!

    I guess Ezio figured out time travel and went on a raping spree.

    Thanks for sharing! I might pick this class up! Wristblades are full of win, and these happen to look solid and cool! Man, Arkship can't get here any faster!

    It just amazes me how cool and epic you can be with cartoony graphics!

    Looks cool :) here's to hoping.

    Additionally, not being a spelling policeman but is "Rouge" a internet humour based intentional mis-spelling of "Rogue" or is it just a common spelling mistake? I see it everywhere so I figured I might have missed a meme somewhere along the line xD

    It's a common mistake. I'm sure the original poster didn't realize that the correct spelling is "rogue" and "rouge" is pronounced "rooj" and is French for red/the "blush" we gals put on our faces. ;)

    I wonder if the rogue class can tank, or if every class can fill at least 2 roles (tank/heal/dps)...
    Would be awesome if a rogue class tanks with evasion style and the warrior with mitigation.

    Would help in LFG for sure not having to deal with where the hell can we get a tank. Then my wife and I could do more duo stuff, she likes to rouge er... rogue and I likes to heal and dps.

    This happened in WoW when people were typing too fast and typed Rouge instead of Rogue... since most people hated rogues, they stuck with it because it was demeaning to the class. :p

    As far as we know, "every class will be able to fill a damage dealing role", while Warriors will be able to tank, and Espers will be able to heal (as implied by the group combat video). Considering we only know of four classes currently, I would certainly hope they all are able to fill two roles each, as the variety right now seems... lacking. Of course, chances are very good there are more classes and Carbine's just kept them under lock and key so far!

    Personally I'd like to see the Spellslinger do tanking over the stealth class. Ranged tanking would be way cooler than evasion tanking!
