I've gotten mine to Level 15 and potatoed him...ive leveled up all his skills and given him Focus, Continuity, and Streamline. Yea maybe i should level him up more before i make any feedback, but anyway onto the problems ive found with him.

Smite: Yea its a nice skill, and the enemy you use it on usually gets killed, But the Little seeking missile things dont really seem to seek other enemies...and when i do use it on a cluster of enemies...it doesn't really kill the other enemies around. Maybe they should travel faster, actually seek out other enemies, and do some more damage.

Hallowed Ground: Looks Cool, but damage seems underwhelming...i will further test it once i get stretch to see how far it extends, but the damage seems very low, i understand he is a "support" but i feel the damage should be higher.

Renewal: This skill is great, i feel the healing is very nice and maybe should give teammates energy as well (excluding yourself) but...the travel time of the energy orbs is slow, and if your teammates are running it takes even longer to get them. Maybe your teammates should be instantly healed instead of having slow moving orbs,

Reckoning: This skill is fine, other than the fact its just a cooler looking Mag Crush, eh...its damage isnt too high on lvl 20 enemies and above. Just like Mag Crush needs to get a damage buff, so does this but...it is the first day its out lol so yea...thats all i have to say about the skills.

It's Earth, from the boss battle against Hek. You get a blueprint for a part after the fight, replay until you have them all. Right now he's a good level for newish players to take on, so go for it!

I view him as more of a PvP Support, his abilities compliment small team and deal pretty good damage from what i've tested in pvp. They also seek in PvP so it will direct you to a hiding player. Hallowed ground can expel campers from postitions. His heal ability is very useful in the heat of battle.

 

WIth my natural talent I can basketball enemies with spam. In pvp it stun locks. Hes definitely more PvP viable.

After looking at his abilities, I am quite disappointed because his skills doesn't really fit my impression of a paladin/druid type of frame. He basically only has one support ability, and his damaging abilities doesn't have any form of CC.

Renewal: skill is worthless right now, it never actually catches up with anyone.

Smite: I can't get it to work, standing next to enemies beating on me, I get invalid target every time.

Hallowed Ground: it's, well, I dunno. It doesn't seem to do much really.

Reckoning: it's crush, with all the same problems crush has.

 

Overall, they actually managed a more pointless frame than Valkyr, although like Valkyr, the look is amazing.

I gotta say this looks like the dullest frame to play. If I want to throw a damage floor effect I've got Ember. Or better yet- Vauban who will disable the enemies in the area rather than simply deal some damage. If I want to heal I'll bring my Trinity and instantly heal/protect enemies for extended periods. And if I want a Crush/Desecrate... screw it I'll just skip the Crush and take my Nekros for health orbs.

He looks great though, one of the best looking frames yet.

 

He does play kinda dull, lacklustre maybe. Valkyr, Oberon (King of the Fairies) and Ember prime have all been superb for artwork, but suffer from lacking skills and (in Embers case) missing polarity slots.

He suffers from the syndrome that almost all "Paladin" classes have ever suffered in the videogame universe post-Warcraft:

 

He heals, but not as good as a healer.  He does damage, but not as good as the damage dealers.

 

Only one game ever got the Paladin class right.  Dungeons and Dragons.

Something tells me Hallowed Ground should be some kind of debuff on top of the damage -- ideally slowing movement and attacking speed from enemies like the frozen tiles in the Void do.

I dont know, I fully agree some tweaks are required but, and I admit the missions Ive done havent been all that hard but, other then the peewee HoT, when timed correctly every skill has its perks.

Though the range on reckoning could be a tad larger(granted compared to ash all skills seem very limted in range), higher drop rate on the healing orbs and I wouldnt mind it having a slightly higher chance on getting energy orbs when it kills a target.

Hallowed ground has potentional but either the damage or the duration needs to be increased,  the DoT could pose as short duration trap that way.

 

Im sure when I get the frame higher Ill see how bad it may be but atleast for the time being Im having fun with it.

DE should have just made Oberon a team-buffing (aura) frame.  That would have actually been a unique play-style (especially if the buffs drained energy constantly, but could be turned off and on at will). 

 

And another thing: why the hell does DE try to make every single frame a damage-dealer?  Even frames which focus on support, healing, tanking, and crowd-control all have generic damage abilities thrown in.  Ember used to be a tank (even if it was unintentional), and now she's a DPS.  Rhino used to be a pure tank, and now he has some of the best damage abilities in the game.  Mag used to be a support class, and now she's also a DPS.  Frost and Nyx have DPS-specific abilities, despite those frames being used for completely different reasons.

Yeah, I agree.  He's okay at best, was expecting an actual Paladin, but eh.

Also, Oberon seems to be designed towards being another healing class. But why even bother? Trinity already got you covered with perma-invulnerability and her gown of the craken...

Because WF is an extremely farm centric casual game. No real party coordination needed, just added damage. This has upsides for the solo/casual player, but I totally get what you mean.

This game has barely any PvP to speak of, since it's mainly a PvE game. What leap of logic pushed you to judge new frame from PvP perspective?
