Playable Skaven Video

Last night, Mythic held a PTS event to test out the new Open RvR system.  Much to my surprise, they also enabled the new playable Skaven.  This is the first time we have gotten a look at them, so it is a little rough.  I did manage to get a hold of one a few times, so I took some video.

I enjoyed the Gutter Runner the most during this test.  The leap ability is just fun. On their own, Skaven are not particularly strong, but they do have some key abilities that will make them useful.  Can't wait to see how they progress in tests to come.

Another big surprise was the keep loot changes.  You can see my reward at the end of the video.  Others reported getting Warlord equipment too.  There are seems to be a new type of loot box within the bags.  Not much is known about these yet.

The next test happens on Friday at 3pm EDT, so come and check out the Skaven!
