Cordovan and Vargouille do a preview of the two enhancement trees being released for update 23. Harper and Vanguard. There has been no official announcement on when update 23 will be released but if you go by previous development cycles I’d guess that it might come out in 2 or 3 weeks, maybe sooner.
I was a little skeptical at first when I heard of a non class specific tree but looking at the preview I think I might actually like it. I made a Artificer/Rogue character a while back that used the rogue mechanic line to get intelligence to damage to my repeating crossbow but I ended up watering down my artificer too much. I consistently get asked for deadly weapons and I hate replying that I don’t have it because I only have 14 levels of Arti. Now, with the Harper tree coming out, I can use my still banked +20 LR heart to remove some Rogue levels. I’ll have to play around with it to see what I can do.
I have a dwarf tank that I’m looking forward to to splashing in some Vanguard. I think the shield bash enhancements will help do more damage ensuring that I can keep agro which can be a problem with sword and board.
I think both trees will add some versatility without taking anything away.
