MMORPG.com Warhammer Online Correspondent Pat Buckley writes this overview of the new Black Guard class recently introduced into the game and provides some helpful tips for playing the class.
The Dark Elf Black Guard is one of the new classes released with the end of the recent Heavy Metal event. He utilizes a "hate" system to fuel many of his abilities as well as increase or decrease the effectiveness of these abilities. Being what would be considered a tank class, the Dark Elf Black Guard has two things he must take into consideration before reaching level ten: sword and shield combination, or pole arm? This choice can be made for you based on one of the three specialized paths for the Black Guard. No matter which path is chosen, remember that as a Black Guard, your place is in the front lines helping to hold sway over the armies of Order.
