Reflections on Victor's future career

And so, ladies and gentlemen, once again we begin our speculations about Victor’s upcoming career.
We can already talk about many things - for example, that each new career necessarily carries a new and unique mechanics that did not exist before and it does not duplicate something existing (Mark - tasks; Bardin - additional weapons; Elf - the ability to change the landscape)
At the same time, we can probably say about some kind of inconsistency of the theory that each character must necessarily have a set of skills of damage, movement, invisibility and running? (at least the elf didn’t get to push through enemies as she should have, but something completely new. Although, it can be called that to some extent)
What do you think, against the background of all the data - what should we expect from a future career? Yet the Priest of Sigmar? Or something new and unexpected, as it was with Mark (no one could guess before, obviously) and with the elf (I practically didn’t see any thoughts about this career, everyone was talking about the war dancer)
Share your opinion

Warrior priest seems to be a popular choice, and I guess a spell could be the new mechanic you’re looking for.
From Lohner’s posts, I guess Sienna’s gonna be a knight of Myrmidia, which seems interesting.
Fatshark has a thing for spreading hints in dialogues. I expected a mage kerillian based on lines from CW. The only clue about Saltzpyre I can think of is the “he wouldn’t make a bad preacher, given half the chance” (I’m misquoting a Lohner’s post)

I am currently looking at the “Knight of Morr” personally.
Victor hates necromancers, as long as they’re not in Reikland, he doesn’t care, otherwise he’ll have to hunt them down like a real “Witch hunter”

But unfortunately, Knight of Morr would look too much like the Grail Knight, And the same with the warrior Priest.

So I remain skeptical about the 2 ideas

I would agree on the Maiden of Myrmidia for Sienna. But for Victor I am not sure. I would think that whatever Victor’s new career will be, it has to do with the Citadel of Eternity which is still shrouded in mystery. The only thing we know is that it wasn’t what they expected and some of them can’t yet decide if it was a good or a bad thing. Still speculating on some off-chance he might become a Warrior Priest of a lesser known god.

not to forget that whatever happens, Victor says: Nobody will divert me from my path, neither Lohner, nor the elf and even less this witch, especially this witch

(Something like that)

For me it will remain rented to Sigmar but seeing a warrior priest would annoy me, it’s too easy

And besides, he would look too much like the Grail Knight.

Warrior Priests don’t look anything like Grail Knights, besides the fact that they wear armor. That’s a weird objection IMO.

It does seem pretty obvious, and I think almost a given. I would be surprised and disappointed if we didn’t get that, tbh. It’s so iconically Warhammer.

I am not sure saltz has the body for something like that though? :joy:

You´d have to be ripped as hell for an armor like that.

Yes but drop @Frostysir. You can’t talk to that kind of player. They have no arguments but want at all costs to have the warrior priest since 2018. A Grail Knight boring 2.0.

But hey, if fatshark listens to the community they will make a Warrior Priest and I personally will uninstall the game. I have Victor lv 35 (+627) and I find it too easy for his character to make him a warrior priest and I will be really disappointed with the lore of this game.

But hey, as long as there are players like the other one above, well I do not know what to say and above all I can not say anything because there will be people like him to come and spoil everything in mode:

Gngngngng gogole priest warrior gngngn we want that

(Frankly, I am on a forum, I calm my words)

Yeah er, good luck with that.

Well, know that for the Grail Knight it was the case

Wow, I’m “that kind of player”. I didn’t know I was that kind, but here is a random man on the internet saying it, it must be true. You seem to be the type of player who has a big chip on their shoulder. :joy:

This is a good point, but I figure Saltz would have a thinner armor. Nothing in Vermintide is as over-the-top as classic Warhammer. I generally like that, since some of the stuff is a bit crazy. But I’m sure a Warrior Priest’s armor can be slimmed down for him.

He’d probably play nothing like a Grail Knight and be more of a support tank. Though . . . seeing as how SotT came out, that might still accidentally become a huge DPS lol. I also see no reason he can’t use other ranged weapons, either - I don’t think Warrior Priests are forbidden those.

Warrior Priest Saltzpyre seems the most clearly obvious choice for a new career for any character in the game - Kruber and Kerillian were kind of surprising shots in the dark, for Bardin it seemed likely to be either an Engi or a Runesmith or something. So it doesn’t seem odd to me that for Saltz they’ll probably pick the obvious choice. There are other things they could pick, I’ve heard the Vampire idea, and that’s kind of interesting, but it seems like a huge stretch for Victor, even if it could be justified. It’s certainly something that would make the lore purists at Games Workshop get conniptions over.

The goal was that I give my ideas like everyone else.

But here you are, your answer in a more detailed form was like this you said to “shut my mouth”

And again, the only answer like all the others is “Warrior priest”

It is frustrating and annoying. I have the right to express myself

Huh? They literally just said that they don’t think a warrior priest would look very much like a GK at all. I’m struggling to see how you’ve construed a personal attack out of that.

Meanwhile your response to them does make you look like you have a massive chip on your shoulder for whatever reason, and you get WAY more personal in your responses, for reasons I don’t understand at all, and which was massively uncalled for frankly.

What is going on here? It’s like we’re reading two different threads. Was there a comment that was edited or removed that I’ve missed?

There’s some kind of misunderstanding going on, I was kind of amused at your response to my first comment. Give your thoughts, man. I never stopped you. I just have my own opinion.

@alsozara I edited my post a couple times (to add more, nothing previously said was altered or removed), and I’ve only made three posts in this thread, counting this one.

Would Knight of Morr even work according to their Scriptures ? (Either: Don’t talk, don’t be funny or another I’ve forgot), also Knight of Morr aren’t Warrior Priest, they are more like Templar (Armoured force of the Cult)

Also Warrior Priest does fit Saltz physique (Proof)

And Sigmar’s Would be the least constrained of all the Warrior Priest possible (Baring Myrmidia and technically Manaan), as lorewise they can use guns,

Blind Warrior Priest that use a big gun (thank you Ghoth1ckov1tch for having this guy in an old post, I couldn’t find it anywhere

The Blackguard are the Knights of Morr that have the Vow of Silence and only talk Battlecommands or when off Duty.
So the Knights of the Raven could be an alternative ( Knights of the Raven | Warhammer Wiki | Fandom ) or a (Warrior)-Priest of Morr.

Personally I´m hoping for Warrior Priest of Sigmar or Ulric (because Saltz is from Middenland originally and Middenland is an Ulric-Bastion). Would make the most sense for Saltz (Ulric if his life would have taken another path).

Also regarding Fauchames

But unfortunately, Knight of Morr would look too much like the Grail Knight, And the same with the warrior Priest.

No, Grail Knight ARmour, or Bretonnian Knight armour in general is much closer to the 11th century and a bit later (mostly early Crusader maybe) where as Empire Steelplate armour is much more advanced and look more like Renaissance-Armour of Knight, since the Dawi shared the secret of making Steelarmour with the Empire of Men. Same goes for Warrior Priest of Sigmar that wear Armour that is different to either Grail Knights or Knights of the Empire. BizarreSalp posted a good picture of it, generally they wear no helmet (why ever that is, there is nothing in their scriptures about that, whereas Ulric has it in his scriptures that Helmets are for cowards), different Legarmour etc. eventhough a Sigmar Warrior-Priest could wear a full Knightsarmour, still what he does on the battlefield is totally different to a Knight.

Furthermore, Knights are heavy Cav. or heavy Footknights. Grail Knights are Cav. only and basically Superhumans (which is why I would have advocated for Kruber as a Questing Knight, not a Grail Knight) and Warrior Priests of Sigmar are in general “heavy” melee Support/Buff Frontliners. Not pure in your face DPS like Grail Knights or Knights of the Empire.

It might be cool to get a warrior priest restricted to only hammers. Dual wield, 1h hammer, 2h hammer, a coghammer kind of equivelent and a really massive hammer.

I’m still hoping for a knight of morr though. Would be so cool.

The thing is that they were never any restrictions in their scriptures toward that, and some of the official art showed them without any hammer too (One of the Duo, the other is WH from the Van Hal family iirc) and some even with a gun (Shown in my comment above)

Knight of Morr could also be just a reskin of Kruber Footknight.
As Footknight you already have the ability to look like a Knight of the Blazing Sun (Pay Helmet and Legend-Armour) https://whfb.lexicanum.com/mediawiki/images/4/42/Knights_of_the_Blazing_Sun-_2016-12-19_18-37.jpeg

So a Black Guard could be done as a reskin (premium Skin even) File:Black Guard NDM.jpg - Warhammer - The Old World - Lexicanum
Knights of Morr | Warhammer Wiki | Fandom

Could be done and would be easier, since a “simple” Knight of Morr would just be another Footknight in essence, whereas a Warrior Priest of Sigmar/Ulric/Morr could indeed bring something new to the table in terms of Armour Design and Abilities (Minor and Major Miracles).

Just as an afterthought on why I think that just a Knight of Morr probably won´t happen, I would rather bet on a Priest or Warrior-Priest. Priest of Morr would ofc be awesome with an Undead DLC :smile:
