Member Preview Version

Last week, members got a chance to preview the class early and give us feedback on its skills and balance. We appreciate their help, and they'll be able to keep the armor art as our way of saying "Thanks!" 

Class Focus

We built this class with a focus on group PvP. It’s a niche we haven’t really focused on much and we wanted the Paladin-crushing General to be an absolute boss in group PvP. In fact, your Undead Rebirth straight up prevents Paladins (and LightCasters) from getting or giving several of their auras! Outside of PvP we also wanted it to hold its own as a farming class and we gave it some of the best sustain out there.

Description: Recommended Enhancements: Lucky, Hybrid. By the powers of of Noxus, you have been reborn as an Undead General! Paladins, Lightcasters and even High Lords tremble at your dark presence. Gather your undead army and take what is rightfully yours!
