On the latest episode of Points of Interest, Game Designer Karl McLain joined host Rubi Bayer for a demonstration of the elementalist’s new elite specialization, the tempest. Tempests use warhorns and shouts to translate their elemental mastery into sound, making them effective close-range fighters who can support their allies on the front lines.
Because area-of-effect and directional abilities are such a major part of the tempest and warhorn playstyle, Karl said that proper positioning will be very important.
