“Fast, cunning and deadly, they dispense merciless judgment upon any who serve Chaos. While the people of the Empire agree that the Swordsman work is critically important, rare is the citizen who does not feel pangs of dread when they lay eyes upon one, for it is understood that most Swordsmen would sooner burn an entire village to the ground than see a single follower of Chaos go free.”
Archetype: Melee DPS / Offensive Support
Class Details: An offensive melee career that relies on ambushing and lighting fast assaults. Witch Hunters rely on careful movement and infiltration to allow them to close the distance with their targets. Once in melee range they build up Accusation against their foes, which allows them to unleash powerful execution attacks.
Whether you are positioning yourself for a devastating strike against an unwary enemy or going toe-to-toe in the thick of the fight, there are few places on the battlefield where a Witch Hunter does not belong. In the face of your tireless assaults and interrogation, your enemies quickly wither and fall – be it by blade, bullet or torch. While your pistol can be a powerful and devastating weapon under the right circumstances, it is slow and awkward to reload in close-quarters. As such, you will make frequent use of the deadly speed and effectiveness of rapiers, knives, stakes, torches and daggers. You will also find it useful to anoint your weapons before a fight to dispatch your unholy enemies with even greater efficiency.
Witch Hunters are melee DPS that focus on stealth-based attacks. They equip rapiers and pistols.
Free Company Militia
Free Company Militia are melee DPS that focus on sustained damage without stealth. They equip a rapier and an arming sword.
Outriders are medium ranged offensive support that suppress enemies with a hail of gunfire while being highly mobile. They equip arming swords and rifles.
