An Order of the Flame – To go.

The Fighter Revamp – The Good, The Bad, and The Extremely Homely.

With Game Update 51, Lucan’s Art of War, SOE will be, as the title of this post suggests, revamping fighters.

Among the things that they will change are how fighters gain, and maintain, aggression (aggro – not to be confused with agro, which has something to do with farming).
