Introducing the Gestir

jRocketjRocket Pixel PunisherPVKII Team
The next character in the ongoing Pirates, Vikings, and Knights saga shall be known as the Gestir. Translated as badass from Old Norse, the Gestir carries with him a long spear, useful for making human shish kabobs and stopping cavalry charges. But, since there is no cavalry in PVK(yet), we made it equally useful for poking people to death. Currently implemented is an optional defensive mode, where your readied spear will be much more effective, but your lack of maneuverability will make you a sitting duck for ranged attacks.

The Gestir is also an olympic javelin thrower, so he's sure to have a few of those around. like any proper viking, he'll also have a trusty sword and shield with him.

Here are some screenshots.

    I thought that the gestir was going to have a Langseax and Shield not a sword and shield

    Yes langseax is what it is, but it is basically a type of sword.

    oh my bad I always thought that a langseax was a type of axe since when you say it you can sorta hear axe in the word lol

    When 2.3 comes out the whole Viking team will contain Gestirs tongue.gif

    P.S. I really love the bash picture, those effects look really neat.

    So, the quiver is empty yet, but will be filled with javelins... and also, his shield needs to be added to the model. But, so far, awesome. You make me hungry for 2.3.

    Will Turner: You didn't beat me. You ignored the rules of engagement. In a fair fight, I'd kill you.
    Jack Sparrow: That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?

    I sense an unbalance in the fork... oh wait it's the 2.3 game...

    Gestir will be blow away by the new pirates wich will probably make the pirates the best team in the game...but, the gestir looks awesome so he will be worth a try.

    You'll still have Huscarls blocking the explosions and Berserkers chasing cutting them down left right a centre, so I doubt Vikings are gonna be any worse off with the new class.

    HOT. I especially like the boots!

    what do you mean by that???
    pirates are ALREADY the best icon_agapirate.gif ...
    Of course I'm kidding - every team is interesting and strong.

    I believe it takes so much time to make 2.3 because of issues with balance and making new characters not to ruin it.

    The gestir model looks amazing! I was worried you wouldn't manage to keep the different vikings unique, but you surely did!

    This house looked a little rushed when I first saw pictures of it, and seeing it closer it still does. Nitpicking!
    REAL POLL THIS TIME

    Is that a dent I see in the heavy knights shield? Will skulls leave an imprint in the shield when he bashes pirates in the face now?

    looks REALLY badass.

    still not sure if I like the new knight armour in 2.3, looks to clean and shiny. itsvery light and looks more like silver than steel.
  • edited 4:08PM
    This spear is way too short in my opinion

    I was hoping for a epic long spear like in the artwork. (http://www.pvkii.com/images/artwork/gestir.jpg)

    It's long enough, he already has the more range than the heavy knight. Any longer and it'll make people ragequite.
