Brief Class Description
Valkyries are armed with sword, shield, and divine magic. Different from those of the Warriors, Valkyries melee actions are more smooth and have elegance. Furthermore, their divine magics are focused on healing and empowering allies, rather than harming foe.
Class Play Style
If you're looking for a tank class, Valkyrie is one of the best in the trade. Make no mistake though they can certainly put out damage if played well, but the primary focus is damage mitigation. In solo pvp they are quite adept at holding their own when in skilled hands, and capable of taking down most other classes. One drawback however is they lack some of the maneuverability and speed of their Warrior counterpart. Where they shine is providing a few decent support buffs, excellent group fight survivability, and most importantly a huge amount of knock downs.
Belonging to a very exclusive list of classes with the ability to block all incoming frontal damage (to a point), makes them fairly forgiving in regards to new player combat mistakes (requires patience). While also allowing room for growth into expert level play, makes Valkyries a solid choice for players looking for a fun & rugged close quarters class.
