    I trust the reason for the absence of a shield is the incompleteness of the model of the Gestir class...
    Also, as mentioned before, the Gestir's skin is too dark. It's as if he was from Africa. I love African people but you can't be black and a viking at the same time.
    Obviously I'd also add to the dirtiness of his skin and tore his clothes apart a little bit to make it look like he had just engaged in close combat.
    In addition I'd add to the length of the spear... After all his spear will be what the Gestir will be known for... Of course there's the risk that Gestir becomes OP but that could be balanced out with decreased damage (against infantry) or a slower attack etc.

    =
    Add the shield, Lighten and further enhance the skin and possibly the Gestir's clothes, increase the length of his spear keeping balance in mind. None of this is meant as a "diss", they are all just points I believe would make this surely-wonderful class even better. =)
    IMO

    Here's a vid I made to demonstrate my ideas:

    Gest(i)r's hardly dark enough to be of African origin. He's just been in the sunlight too long, 's all.

    It's a work in progress. I will be lightening the skin and dirtying the texture up, and maybe changing colors. I hadn't even given it a dirt pass. The spear already has enough clipping issues since it doesn't collide with the world, so I don't think I'll be able to lengthen it.

    poor gestir gettin blocked in by a hk, and he pulls up his spear, oh boy hes screwed. icon_zombieglomp.gif

    Edit: also that wouldnt work in maps like temple. even tho it is getting wider hallways (so to say). Gestir would be running around scraping the ceiling for gums with his spear.

    In terms of native population, most of them are, the rest are Indo-European migrant populations.

    What's your first language, I've heard Swedish has a remarkably similar sentence structure to English

    My first language is Finnish.
    Swedish is an official language in Finland, still I have no clue. icon_bushblink.gif
    I have no choice but to move to England.

    Most Scandinavian is very similar to English, this is partly because England had viking kings for quite some time.
    Even the 'th' is from Old Norse originally. Icelandic is the only remaining living language which employs the original runic letter for that sound. Icelandic is also the closest nowadays to Old Norse.

    Swedish, Norwegian and Danish are really a lot alike, Finnish is really a different type of language as far as I know. Danish also has loads of celtic influences.

    Swedish and Zeeuws (a dutch accent) look very similar too, I can understand Swedish pretty well and I never actually studied it.

    The only norse language I know have celtic influnences are Faroe's and Norn. Danish don't have any celtic traits as far as I know.
    But danish,swedish and norwegian are full of german loan words.

    The wood texture for the spear looks funky, too. It seems to fresh, too bright.

    The problem is more-so too much texel space per pixel so there is the appearance of moire lines. It is gonna be fixed.

    How long would it take to release without the gestir? If its only a week or 2, you might consider doing that, so you have the first small patch lined up a month from now, then maybe get into the rythym.

    I think its an extremely poor business decision to have something, something people want, and not do anything with it, when will we be able to play the gestir? Are you waiting to finish the other 2 corresponding classes or are you going to release them seperatly? If together then why tell us gestir is all good to go? Been waiting for nearly 46 days now, with no update watso-ever on progress, news, or anything.

    First: When the update will come out, the Gestir would be the only class. Next classes will be released when ready (or with updates like in TF2).

    Second: They don't owe you anything! They release news or anything wheter they want. Besides there were much, much longer times without any news.

    So: STFU
