    I dunno, it still doesn't sit well with me...if they can create a sorcerer class that I'm not sure is in GW lore, they can make a "wizard" elf class

    Like I said, Pish, same guy. You think two Blood gods would stand for each other in the Warp? I don't. The only difference is the appearance and traditions of the followers.

    Grrrr.... not the same God. Khaine is not Khorne.

    It is very obvious in 40k lore that they are different. And while the game systems are different, the Gods are basically the same.

    Khaine is Khorne's sneaky, wiser older uncle.

    Khaine is seperate because he existed first, and refused to be "absorbed" into Khorne.

    "Witch" kind of means "chosen" when used by GW for dark elves. Like the Witch King.

    Mythic could have tried to implement an assassin, as they're kind of the male equivalent of Witch Elves. Hell, considering the odd choice to give them stealth, that would probably make more sense.

    Or they could have just implemented Corsairs.

    Ever seen Khaine's rune?

    Khaine is as much Khorne as the Horned Rat is Tzeentch and Nurgle and Loec is Tzeentch.

    The Male sorcerer is in the fluff anyway. Read the new Dark Elf book, they mention that while most magic users are female in Dark Elf society, there are male ones. They're just treated with disdain and mistrust...well more so then other Dark Elves I guess.

    With the right hair doo and face it's pretty easy to make your witch elf look like a drag queen with a 5 o clock shadow, if that makes you feel any better when your slaughtering unicorns.

    Yes, really now. I don't see the problem with it. It's not a "loop" whatever that is. The male sorcerers were in the previous editions as well, they were just killed at birth when found. That doesn't mean there weren't any Male sorcerers, just makes them quite a bit more rare.

    It's not a loop. I have a 4th edition male Sorcerer model. There has never been a male Witch Elf, ever.

    Also: Witch elves are a stealth assassin class in much the same way WoW Paladins are a ranged DPS class.

    Man, I don't know. Why don't you call up GW and pose these questions to them?

    There aren't any Lizardmen, Vampire Counts, Brettonians, and a whole host of other stuff in the game either, but all that stuff is in the Lore. It's a damn game, get over it.

    Has this happened to anyone? For some strange reason WAR will not start up for me, and I get this error: warpatch.exe is not a valid win32 application. And the icon has changed from the WAR symbol to the default program symbol. This is really frustrating as I just ordered some computer parts to make it run smoothly on my computer and I won't be able to test it if I can't freaking play.

    So, at level 40 when your spells don't all level up with you anymore, do most classes generally stop using their non-mastery spell schools? Though I guess at RR80 you can spec two lines to 15 and 14 now, so you only have to neglect one of them.

    Pretty much, unless there's a good secondary effect on the non-mastery ability. At high levels, off-spec abilities aren't very efficient. They do less damage.

    Example: A marauder's Flail with 15 in Monstrosity is treated as a level 40 ability and has a base damage of 262. With 0 points in Monstrosity, Flail is a level 25 ability with a base damage of 175.

    If you play a game and then are able to spend pages debating with someone on the actions of a faction within that game you probably just played a pretty sweet game.

    Male dark elf sorcerers weren't *removed* until 6th edition. They're back in 7th.

    Female chosen was a design decision not based on lore. Most chosen models are male, so Mythic decided it was more iconic and an excuse (or something) to not make female models in game. There's no lore anything behind that.

    I'll second the whole no female Chosen or Marauders thing. Pretty obvious it was an excuse to shorten their graphical asset development time.
