    Swordmaster

    Introduction:
    The Darkblood Swordmasters are the favored warriors of the Witch Queen Sylia Silverwind, and are given the sacred task of not only serving as her personal bodyguard, but as her heartless enforcers on the field of battle. Those who would become a Swordmaster are taken from birth from their mothers. A Swordmaster has no family ties to distract them, they are children of hatred and war and are raised from infancy steeped in battle and blood. Each Swordmaster has personally sworn an oath of undying devotion at the feet of the Witch Queen, it is this oath that lights the fires of hatred and scorn deep in their hearts, for no warrior can be greater then the one chosen by Sylia herself.

    Living a life of constant battle the Swordmasters are psychologically incapable of believing anyone can defeat them, and they take a personal grievance against any foe who stands under their brutal assault. These elite warriors do not let this hatred consume them, instead they embrace and focus their rage, allowing them to lash out with even greater force against their foes. A Swordmaster is resolute in their duty unyielding to any force be it physical or arcane. It is for this reason that even the most powerful of assaults will always break against the glaives of hatred that each Swordmaster wields.

    Hatred
    Following the path of Hatred means mastering ones rage and molding it into a powerful weapon. The Swordmasters who embrace this are capable of unleashing powerful attacks fueled by their Hatred. Attacks done by Swordmasters embracing this power will generate additional Hatred that can be used for various magical attacks but will also passively increase the Swordmaster's attack speed and chance to parry by up to a maximum of 15% of both.

    Playing as a Swordmaster:
    A Swordmaster generally considers the best defense to be a good offense and will always be found on the front line leading the charge. A Swordmaster will relentlessly assault his or her desired opponent, and will slowly become enraged should that opponent have the audacity not to die with the first swing of their glaive. Properly harnessing the hatred that flows from their scorn of others is the key to winning any battle, allowing them to wear down their opponents under an unyielding and unending assault that grows stronger with every passing second.

    Playing against a Swordmaster:
    The only way to truly defeat a Swordmaster is to utterly and completely crush them as fast as possible. For the longer a Swordmaster survives the more enraged they will become. This hatred is their greatest advantage for the burning hate not only strengthens their assault but allows them to brush off even powerful arcane magics. Unlike many heavy fighters the Swordmaster is very capable of holding their own against the Arcane forces of a mage in a prolonged fight.

    That's an option!

    I like the idea about using hatred :) I'm thinking "Strike of the Fanatic" could have a silence effect for some seconds instead of int based damage? Just a suggestion, imho it suits his characteristics.

    Yours,

    How about calling it Warglaivebladeswordmaster? ;-)You should really add a custom model, Illidan is unoriginal.

    Maybe I will completely change the name.
    Anyways about the model. Trying to find a good skin for it. I really like the demon hunter model though. Just a lowsize skin would be a good solution.

    Thanks but no thanks.
    That's a blood elf. The Dark elves in Oakwood don't look like blood elves. They're dark and that's why they use mostly night elf skins. But the Swordmaster already got an other skin, I forgot to update this picture.

    At the start of this movie you will see one of the Swordmasters:

    You can see the face on the link I posted.
    The terrain is so horror + zombie? What are you trying to say? If you took atleast a few minutes to look through the screenshots threads you should know it's not only like this.
    And no I don't use any WoW imports. The doodads are just from normal warcraft III. Except for the Moria Doodads from, if I remember right, Olofmoleman.

    I believe he means "the terrain is for zombies". Makai, this is not WarCraft III. The undead don't always have to be the ones inhabiting blighted areas. However, the undead do inhabit this sort of environment with their allies (or puppets, I'd imagine) the dark elves.
