At last! Actual Update 9 information! We’ve known three rumor-iffic things for awhile now:
- There will be more spells
- There will not be druids
- An icon of a vampire and an icon of a zombie are somehow involved
Analysis suggests that the new PrE will be similar to the Cleric Radiant Servant in that there is really no reason not to take it. It is cheap, it is useful, and it has no drawback or down side. Highlights:
- Additional spell damage on most attack spells
- All-new unique melee capability to reduce enemy Fortification level
- Additional melee defenses
No bonus to heals, but no downside to heals either. I can’t imagine an FvS that isn’t going to want this.
PAX East is this weekend; the Update 9 information will be coming thick and fast. Stay tuned.
