    Gather round cupcakes (ESPecially those of you with some latent psychic ability)!​
    This week we have the return and re-introduction to the Esper class and the second in the Class Ultra Drop. Much like last week with the Warrior, there will be a Reddit AMA on Thursday as well as the previously announced livestream this Saturday. But enough about that stuff, read on and check out the new Esper class page!​

    Very cool stuff, that last support ability where everyone turns into some kind of heavy armored dude, looks awesome. Still rolling Warrior myself, but Esper is atm in a close 2nd now.

    Wow I did not really have any interest in playing an Esper but after that I might make one...

    Some of the Aurin looked so anime I barely suppressed a shudder.

    And I almost began thinking that they ain't that bad.

    No. They are bunny people and they must die.

    Esper was one of my main class choices, but now... I dunno. The vid didn't 'do it' for me. I look forward to the livestream though!

    And the Aurins... bleh! I'm sure one of them had the obligatory short shorts of jrpg-land. Ew.

    Oh God.....those disclaimers get faster every time :D I love it though! Gives us a bit more info about their abilities and the healing part of it then the previous esper video!

    Also still loving the golden armor buff!!! :up:

    Make it raidwide and you'll got a whole Golden Army charging in on you :sneaky:

    Also no Rowsdowers in this video :cry:

    Times are from the video on IGN's youtube.

    The Esper's health bar at 0:35 does not show a shield. There is a zero above the purple 100% bar, appears the class is still using a combo point system, and "mana"?

    The horrors of reading. Adds weight to my theory that the book on the classes page belongs with the Chua, not the Granok.

    At 1:38 we briefly see four characters behind the Esper before they "go for the gold". Are these all revealed classes? Note, all positions discussed are from the audience's point of view.

    • Two to the left of the Esper looks to be a male Granok Warrior.
    • One to the left of the Esper looks human, class unknown. This character appears to be wearing a bronze or gold colored mask, unable to see their eyes through the mask. Her shoulder pads are of a smaller style than the Warrior's.
    • The Esper in the middle. No shoulder pads.
    • One to the right of the Esper is a clearly a male Spellslinger, dual wielding pistols. No shoulder pads.
    • Two to the right of the Esper is a female Granok. The armor has a similar look to the other unknown class in the scene. This character is not wearing a mask. Or is this a Warrior?
    Your thoughts?

    Is gold a general buff color? There are some screenshots of Warriors with this golden buff armor without an Esper visible.

    Wait for the Esper class page to be released on the official site later today. Rember last week? The Warrior Devspeak was underwhelming but their class page was much more interesting, IMO.

    Edit: Oke I found 1 with the golden armor that appears to be a warrior, but we can't see if there is an Esper behind her/him.
    Rest of the pictures all have an Esper in them.

    Eh, the Chua seem to have clipping issues with their tails and the Esper weapons, guess I'm sticking with the male Cassian, or God forbid, a filthy human. Hopefully it doesn't come to that, I want to kill the Aurin, not be around them, especially the bubble gum/candy floss haired ones.

    Hmm not my cup of tea for a class I usually play, might try one out during beta just to go with something I usually don't play, I know a friend that might like this style of class.
