Snaga is released

#1reverendmetaPosted 2/21/2013 3:24:08 PM
For those who don't know yet, Snaga is available. They released him Wednesday morning (here in US anyway). He is an "evil" Striker with a weird playstyle where he basically marks and debuffs a single enemy at a time then deals massive damage with his basic attack.

If they keep going by the same schedule they have been, then the Barrow-wight Lord should be released the Wednesday after next, March 6th.

Still no word on Survival Mode.

He's a pretty fun character. He has the fastest base move speed(tied with Gollum) and has a skillset that synergizes to debuff, rush, and murder one enemy really fast. Compared to similar characters(Gollum, Bilbo, Mozgog), he feels a bit lacking in self-preservation skills.

I also really really hate his character model. He looked fine in Two Towers, damnit.

Where are people hearing about future Guardians like the Barrow-wight Lord? Is there a list somewhere of guardians that are being worked on?

Right when the game came out, the MotD at the top left listed what you'd get from the Season Pass. It went something like:

Bilbo
Bert
Snaga
Barrow-Wight Lord
4 Mystery Guardians

Considering we now have our four mystery guardians(Thorin, Goblin, Radagast, Gloin), it is fair to assume we will be recieving the Barrow-Wight Lord next.

Wait hold on...have they said 8 was the max? No Gimli,Viggo, or Saruman?? If Ugluk and R the Brown made it I dunno why they wouldn't put the white wizard in.

They have not said if that is the max number of characters or if there will be a "season 2" of DLC releases.

The game definitely has room for/needs many more characters. Saruman, Treebeard, Grishnack, Elrond, Shagrat, Tom Bombadil, maybe Frodo & Samwise as a dual-character, Isildur. There are so many greats in the lore!

At the very least, they could release "re-skinned" versions of existing characters that look and play slightly different. Say a Gandalf the White, or an "Aragorn" skin for Arathorn that has a melee basic attack instead of a bow, or a generic "Ringwraith" skin for the Witch-King that would have better basic attacks but less ability power/auras.

I'd prefer Witch-King's RotK armor, personally. His GoME outfit looks like such a generic necromancer armor.
