Here's a great video showing off PvP.
His name is Warrior and he's a warrior... original. Anyways, as you can see warriors are pretty OP. I'm a little worried they will have the advantage in PvP. Hopefull all classes are pretty equal though.
This video below seems to be a pretty interesting look into how good mages are against warriors (it is a battle mage, but still the skills are impressive).
What do you guys think? Going for the warrior are another class?
