Post #5 - Warrior-Priest reveal!

Postby Drildgen » 13 June 2016, 14:08

Hello everyone,

On this fine day, we're very proud to divulge another hero unit of the Witch Hunters Warband: The Warrior-Priest!

Among the ranks of Sigmar’s clergy, the Warrior Priests emphasize the martial aspects of their god. Filled with a fiery fervour and an unbreakable faith, these priests are a formidable sight to the enemies of the Empire. Wielding immense warhammers that can shatter skulls and crush bones, a Warrior Priest is an imposing foe. More than their physical strength, however, it is a Warrior Priest’s devotion to Sigmar that endows him with his deadliest abilities – harnessing the divine power of his god and unleashing devastating forces against his adversaries.
Initial Weapon Set
Set 1: Hammer & Shield
Set 2: None

Equipment Proficiency
Melee: Dagger, Flail, Hammer, Mace, Sigmarite Warhammer, Great Flail, Great Hammer.
Range: None.
Armour: Cloth, Light, Heavy, Shield, Pendant, Amulet.

Divine Spellcaster: This unit has access to some spells from Sigmar’s Prayers Tome.

Initial Spell
Immaculate Flesh: Removes all active Poison effects and increases Poison and Wyrdstone Resistance by 15%. Not stackable.

Initial Skills
Divine Rage: When dealing melee damage, increases the Spellcasting chance of the next spell by 15%. The next action taken must be a spell or the effect is lost.
Potiential Spells
Shield of Faith: Increases Magic Resistance by 15%. Not Stackable.
Armour of Righteousness: Grants immunity to Fear and provokes Fear on engaged enemies. Increases Armour Absorption by 10%. Not Stackable.
Deny the Heretic: Creates a zone effect at the selected area. Entering or starting a turn inside the area inflicts a debuff that reduces current and maximum Offense Points by 1 and Melee Hit chance by 5% for 1 turn. Not Stackable.
Word of Damnation: Reduces Magic Resistance by 10% and the chance to pass All Alone, Fear, and Terror tests by 25%. Not Stackable.
Soulfire: Deals 10-15 damage. Bypasses Armour Absorption.

Current initial spell doesn't make much sense. Seems way too Warband / Wyrdstone focused. Would think a 'Warrior-priest' would have something more fitting of the title.

Armour of Righteousness or Prayer of Absolution seems far more fitting than Immaculate Flesh. Immaculate Flesh seems way too situation specific for a starting spell.

Is Trial By Pain a Mistake as one of the Warrior Priests faction active skills? It is a ranged attack, requiring Ballistic skill to use, which the Warrior Priest doesn't even have base enough to use, nor able to spend on.

Seems like there should have been a more spell caster oriented skill on his list in that slot.
