Glaivier is the new Advanced Class coming to the Lost Ark, with the April and May updates and roadmap. Though most of the content seems to be running late, at the very least we will have a new class this month.
Practicing an artistic and deadly form of martial arts, the Glaivier slices and dices her way through the battlefield, weaving together attacks with her spear and glaive. The Glaivier will join the Wardancer, Soulfist, Striker, and Scrapper as the fifth Martial Artist Advanced Class.
On the official Lost Ark Twitter account, it has been announced that Glaivier will be coming to the game on April 21.
The class itself will be a skill-based one, and will have two distinct skill sets which can be swapped between:
Each of the stances and skillsets are represented by one of her two weapons. The shorter spear is used to unleash a furious barrage in the Flurry stance, while the longer glaive harnesses the Focus stance for gracefully lethal strikes and sweeping attacks.
While certain builds may focus your attention on one of these weapons, an effective Glaivier can maximize their potential by creating a balance between the two stances, building up energy in one stance which grants an impactful stat-boost when swapping to the other, advise the developers.
One has to wonder, though, if the publishers are aware of all the meems surrounding the April and May Roadmaps, and the Twitter video has the year alongside the date for that very reason.
