Episode 97 Recap: Striker

MindMap for Strikers

Some say that Strikers are purely an offensively minded guardian. This is not so. They throw their bodies at incoming fire so others won’t have to. It’s not a death wish….. Well for themselves at least. Once a Striker’s fist starts moving you can’t stop it, all you can do is make sure that you are somewhere else by the time it lands. Unlike their Stormcaller and Bladedancer compatriots the sustaining of the power is not the point. The point is the end, The lightning strike, the deadly burst of arc designed for maximum disruption and destruction. The point is this strikers make sure that they get the job done. It’s what they do. It’s as natural as breathing.

In this episode we are joined by Beard_Grizzly from YouTube.

Titan
“Strive for honor. Stand for hope.”

Titans are warriors – heroic defenders of the Light, channeling the gifts of the Traveler to wage war on the Darkness. Steadfast and sure, Titans face any challenge head-on, blunt force instruments of the Traveler’s will.

 

 

Striker
“At close quarters a fist is better than any gun.”

Striker Titans charge into close combat, armored in Light and wielding fistfuls of thunder.

Striker tactics depend on shock and disciplined aggression. They must awe and scatter the enemy, or risk being overwhelmed. Fellow Guardians prize their ability to draw fire as they shatter the enemy line.

 

Arc

“A spark can give life…or take it.”

The universe is defined by fundamental forces. Complex matter is bound together by deep forces – and in the study of this binding lies the secret of Arc Light.

Legend of the Titan Quest Text:

Early Days
Reach level 4
  • Card Text / In-Game Text
“You carry the dream of the City with you, Titan. As you step back into the wilds, always remember those of us behind the Walls. We count on the strength of your shoulders. We’re counting on you.”
– Commander Zavala
Talk to Zavala
  • In-Game Text
“Good to see you again, Guardian. I truly mean that. You would be surprised how many newborn Guardians do not make it out of their early days. If it gives you any solace, I make sure that every fallen Titan is buried at the Wall.”
– Commander Zavala
Front Lines
Reach level 10
  • Card Text / In-Game Text
“You have survived the dangers of the Hive, the Fallen. You should be proud. But do not become arrogant. There are plenty of shadows in the system, plenty of places for the enemy to hide.”
– Commander Zavala
Talk to Zavala
  • In-Game Text
“Before I stepped into my role with the Vanguard, I was…much more spirited. Those days seem far gone now. The dream of the City is all I have left. Every morning, I wake and turn to see that the Walls still stand, and I allow myself a smile.”
– Commander Zavala
Dark Places
Reach level 15
  • Card Text / In-Game Text
  • “Now you’ve seen what we’re up against. We don’t like to tell Guardians newly reborn just how bad it is out there. But you are ready for it. You’re strong, prepared. You’ve done so much, and you can do so much more.”
    – Commander Zavala

Talk to Zavala

  • In-Game Text
“Don’t let the Hunters or Warlocks deceive you, Guardian. Titans bear the weight of the City’s defense. We held the line at the Gap, we build the walls and keep the dream of the City alive. Without our strong arms and broad shoulders, what keeps the Tower standing? Never forget that.”
– Commander Zavala
Beyond the Sky
Reach level 20
  • Card Text
“I speak often of the power of the city as a symbol. But never forget, it is a real place. The home to living, breathing people. A home that would not exist without your efforts. Down below us stretches the last free City on earth. And it is here because of your strength, your deeds. Do not forget this, Guardian. It is why we are here.”
– Commander Zavala
Beyond the Sky
  • Card Text
“Guardian, you have seen and done many things in your short life. Again and again, you have upheld the standard we try to set for the Vanguard. You have held the line. You have protected the City. And you have made me proud.”
– Commander Zavala
  • In-Game Text
“Your time in the field has given you a sense of the real enemy before us: numbers. There are so very many of them. In their Tomb ships, in their Ketches. Deployed from garrisons and summoned from the depths of time itself. What do we have?
Faded mortar and aging cannons. This is why I speak so often about these walls we have built, Guardian. In every sense, they are what separate us from the hordes beyond.”
– Commander Zavala

Against the Darkness
Reach level 30
  • Card Text
“I almost – almost – pity the Darkness. So much effort to reach us. Entire races of creatures consumed with a hunger for the Light, or deployed many light-years from their homes. All here, at our doorstep, waiting to tear down what we have built. They will fail. And we will make them pay for trying.”
– Commander Zavala

 

Talk to Zavala

  • In-Game Text
“I was speaking of your actions and bravery just today to a new recruit. I pointed you out and recounted for them a few of your deeds. They did not believe me. And so I said to them, truthfully, that your service is the exception, that most who serve the Vanguard will not reach your heights.
But that does not make their service any less important. If they come to you seeing advice, I would ask that you give it with respect. And remember how far you have come.”
– Commander Zavala
Be Brave
Reach level 40
  • Card Text
“Titan, you are a legend. You are the shield behind which the City stands tall. You have proven yourself. The dream of the City is your dream, her people your people. I consider the Vanguard lucky to have you on the front lines.”
– Commander Zavala

Path of the Striker

Talk to Zavala

  • Card Text
“The dream of the City. Its Walls keep it together. Its spears – the Strikers – are what keep it alive.”
– Commander Zavala
  • In-Game Text
“As a Striker, you move to the front. The front of the war, the front of the Fireteam, the front of the line. You are the front, and the front moves with you.
Go, take the field of battle. Prove to the enemy that you are a living front line. Make them heed your training well.”
– Commander Zavala
Slay Enemies
  • Card Text
“Your training is progressing nicely, Guardian. The call of the Striker is a difficult one, putting us on the front lines of a skirmish. Your heavy fist will turn the tide in many battles to come.”
– Commander Zavala
Talk to Zavala
  • Card Text
“Heh. Nothing like that moment when you bring the Fist down. Sometimes, in the Crucible, I like to have my helmet cam running. That way, I can go back and see the whites of their eyes just before everything goes ‘zap.’ “
– Wei Ning
  • In-Game Text
“You are the front. Push against the Darkness and the Light will reward you.
Head out there with a team. Lead by example! Start to charge, and your allies will follow suit.”
– Commander Zavala
Complete the Path
  • Card Text
“What the City wants us to do—what we want to do—it doesn’t make any damned sense. That phrase ‘tip of the spear’ sounds good in speeches, but you know what happens to spear tips? They break. But that’s what it takes. If the choice is between you or the Wall? You break.”
– Kabr
Talk to Zavala
  • Card Text
“Aim your strike past this moment into the moment beyond. Then smile as your foe shatters upon your watch.”
– Saint-14
  • In-Game Text
“You’ve returned, knowing not just how to strike, but when and why. And for that, you have my utmost respect.
The Vanguard has a tradition of challenging those who attain a certain level of mastery. I’m feeding the details to your Ghost. I’m sure you will live up to expectations. I have no doubt.”
– Commander Zavala
Zavala’s Challenge
  • Card Text / In-Game Text
“All disciplines, all Guardians, undergo challenges of this nature. I feel it’s necessary to remind the Hunters and Warlocks of why they are such an important part of the City’s defense. For Titans, this is just another day on the Wall.”
– Commander Zavala
Talk to Zavala
  • Card Text
“If you want to see tomorrow, do not stand against me today.”
– Wei Ning
  • In-Game Text
“Remember, Guardian, you are the front. With each footfall, make the enemy know it. Make them earn every step in your direction.
Do both, and the City will stand long enough to see another Golden Age.”
– Commander Zavala
