Default Expeditions: Viking - February Newsletter

March 6th, 2017, 00:17
This months newsletter has information on the PC Gamer weekender, the beta that start March 15, combat using spears and the release in two months.

We thought that this month we'd showcase for you, the skill highlights of another two-handed weapon available in Expeditions: Viking, the Spear.

Enjoy the benefits of poking people with a sharp object without all the hassle of having to stand close enough for them to poke you back. As with most weapons, investing skill points to level the Spear will reward players with a total of 3 unique combat abilities:

Extend - at Rank 1, Extend is an attack action which allows battlefield tacticians to go where no melee weapon has gone before, granting players melee attacks with a three hex reach, though at 75% or regular damage.

Smack - Sometimes despite your best efforts enemies will get inconsiderately close to your charaters. When that happen's those with Spear Rank 3 will be able to gracefully swat an adjacent target up side their head with the blunt end of the spear. This will count as an attack at 50% regular damage and will make the target Concussed (Endurance -3). The player's unit will then take a step one hex back without provoking Attack of Opportunity.

Distract - at Spear Rank 5 the Distract ability allows a character to draw the attention of an enemy and neutralizes the Attack of Opportunity of that Enemy. It will only work on targets that are exactly two hexes away.

Nut Cracker - at Spear Rank 7 the Nut Cracker ability allows a character to strike an opponent between the legs using the butt of the spear, focusing the enemy's entire attention on health issues, and making for an entertaining YouTube moment. Opponents wearing a cod piece ignore this attack.

Why use the blunt end?
