Eladrin is quoted describing an idea for Fvs AoV. Does anyone have any news about this?

Angel of Vengeance was the first and only PrE FvS had for a long time.

Now that the Enhancement Thingie has happened, there aren't really any PrEs in the old sense, but Angel of Vengeance is still one of the 2 trees FvS have available.

There is supposedly a Warpriest tree they are working on to "give" us, but only after taking away one of the trees we have, so FvS will still only have 2 trees.

All that old stuff from devs about completing the PrEs became irrelevant when they decided to throw away the old PrE and flexible enhancement system and instead give us this cookie-cutter tree thing.

I bugged Varg/Piloto/Steel etc during the dev chats relentlessly to figure out where the Cha-based-damage/power, slightly paladiny Divine Avenger had gone since Eladrin's first sneak peak on it. I also bugged them asking where Eladrin had gone. I got a number of jokes but no answers.

Classifying the new system as cookie-cutter seems harsh and misrepresents the new number of options available for build setups in this game. I keep flipping loadouts on most of my characters every few days. Though I don't have any pure FVS or Fighters anymore. The new system's much lower dependency between class levels and tier'ed enhancements gives a lot more build options and future dev promise than the previous every FVS is an AoV3 with toughness enhancements... and no FVS cheaper maximize and crazy AP costing top tier enhancements. Please don't make us go back to 12 AP cheaper Empower 3 only. Was lame.

Erm I guess I can't copy text properly, meant Divine Avenger with this quote:
Divine Avenger details

(available with the enhancements revamp)

Source: Eladrin

Favored Soul Divine Avenger I (Sovereign Host) Prereqs: Level 6 Favored Soul, Favored by the Sovereign Host, Favored Soul Attack Boost II, Favored Soul Charisma I, and any of the following: Power Attack or Two Weapon Fighting. Cost: 4 AP Benefit: Everything the gods need to say to your enemies can be said with your weapon. When wielding a longsword in your right hand you are treated as if you have a fighter’s base attack bonus. You also gain the ability to swear an oath of enmity against a foe, vowing to destroy them in the name of your deity.
Oath of Enmity Benefit: You mark an opponent as your chosen foe with a righteous smite. This attack gains twice your Charisma modifier to your attack roll and a damage bonus based on your Favored Soul level. Whether or not the attack hits, for the next five minutes, each time you critically hit your chosen enemy <SOMETHING AWESOME HAPPENS - oath mechanics are still very much in development, and this is just a hint> for a short period of time. (This bonus stacks up to ten times.) Your Oath of Enmity recharges after five minutes, or upon the death of your chosen foe.
Repeat for other deities, replacing "favored by" as appropriate.

Lord of Blades accepts any of the following: Improved Fortification, Power Attack, or Two Handed Fighting.

Silver Flame accepts any of the following: Point Blank Shot, Weapon Focus: Ranged, or Zen Archery, and instead of a melee smite as their Oath, gets a ranged attack, and their Oath mechanic was a little bit different (and wasn't working properly at all). A tree with stuff like this would be great for martial FvS's. 'jokes but no answers' does not sound like it's coming anytime soon though :/

I quite like the new enhancement system; one of my two single-classed characters does seem to have trouble spending points on something worthwhile but all those with more classes seem to have lots of goodies to spend points on.

Supposedly we were going to get Warpriest with the 1st patch but we didn't. So with the next one?
