Silverlight and Berserker
Silverlight and Berserker,
the new Guardian elite

 

Two new elite units come into play.

Berserkers are elite Guardians that sacrifice some defense for a powerful Rage signature skill.

Silverlight are elite Chargers are shock troopers trained to charge the enemy's flank.

Berserkers

The artic weather of Manirak has taken care the no one can get into battle naked, even the Berserkers. So these elite Guardians had to focus on the "other" key aspect of their namesakes - manic fighting, usually with the help of a generous quantity of firewater.

Regardless of the level of intoxication, however, the Berserkers have no illusions about the Berseker's mythic ability to blunt the enemy's weapons with a single stare. So they add quite a few layers of armor on top of "Odin's spiritual protection".

Blind Rage

- Increases speed and damage

Silverlight

The Silverlight are assigned to the Sannah Sisterhood to act as protectors. They are the Riftforge’s only real “knights in shining armor”. The adverse weather conditions on Manirak, however, have put quite a strain on keeping the metal armor in its immaculate condition.

The other elite troopers say that if the Silverlight spent any more time cleaning and polishing, they should be moved to the Sisterhood’s maid quarters.

Impale
Impale

- Damages enemies in a line

So what happened to Impalers and Wreckers , the "old" Guardian elite? They are both alive and kicking (and taking names too).

Note: Impalers actually got the Impale skill, while the new Silverlight got the old Charge skill. Wreckers haven't changed, they still wreck everything in their path with a nicely-placed Cleave.
