    Maybe that's because we haven't seen the shields turned on.. Fighting with two shields would be kinda cool. :p ..although it'd be a bit silly.

    I wish I could have dual-wield shields as a paladin tank in WoW.

    On another note was that mechari pic on page 2 only a fan art?

    LOL, dual wielding shields would be silly.

    That Mechari picture is one Carbine used on their booth at Pax.

    Funny you should mention "40K MMO." It's actually shutting down this year.

    Hm, Not to sure what to think just yet. This was the class i was hoping to play if not the warrior. I don't mind the weapons to much. The whole weapons on the back is a really cool idea but the model them selves are kinda to bulky for my liking. I wont judge just yet though because i have only seen like one combat video.

    Probably going to play an alt medic for the lulz and paddle shocking. XD Too goofy to not play around with for fun.

    Was just double checking. I am starting to think that the planned to offically release the medic/engineer classes at pax but due to them pushing the release window back held onto the info, and kinda forgot about things like the Mechari medic art, since last time I checked Mechari couldn't be spell slingers.

    Yeah, I'd imagine that is the reasoning as well.

    I love how amazing and simultaneously terrible the Carbine team is at keeping things under wraps.

    As for actually partaking in the conversation, I really do think the medic will be a melee DPS with a focus on short range abilities. From a lore perspective I think they're going to have the pads be equal parts shock paddle, shield and medical dispensary.

    Thinking about it logically, what this will give us is a class that is capable of being DPS and operating as a support class. Include a medic in your raid team to hang with the melee DPS and drop shields/heals on the group for really difficult telegraphs. It'll absorb/heal damage and take pressure off of the primary healer while still contributing to the DPS function.

    To be honest, this will likely be the function of at least one Esper or Spell Slinger for the ranged DPS group, or every Esper or Spell Slinger will be forced(through game mechanics) to bring one AoE heal spell for just that reason.

    The medic is going to be a free-form healer, the Esper an AOE healer, and the Spellslinger a single target healer. According to an interview with whom, I forget.

    I don't remember if the Medic is going to have Tank or DPS as their alternate role.

    I am curious to see some more Medic weaponry though.

    Medic will have DPS as its alternate role. Every class has DPS+X (3 healers, 3 tanks)

    Yes. I was there and asked about that specifically, and the response was not going to be the person who leaked the name nor confirm or deny what I said ha.

    The amount of attractivity i feel towards medic is so high it make me question my virility ( who said all women play healers ? :D ) Nothing's like punching/electrifying to death an ennemy!

    who's been saying that about healers? Don't you find some manly pride in holding someones life in your hands, deciding if they get that heal to live or if you are going to get gkicked for not healing my main tank cause hes an idiot?

    but in all seriousness I can't wait to see what kind of attacks medic's and rain down upon their enemies.
