My name is Tresdin, and there is a great threat growing in my kingdom. And that threat is the waves of filthy non-human refugees who litter our street corners and whose mongrel languages are belted out in every pub! I didn’t become the greatest general this kingdom has seen in hundreds of years to see my lands reduced to this, but that will be dealt with shortly. For now my axe is called to battle the hordes of darkness that threaten every human in these lands. I march to turn the tables on these horrors, and I dare even one of them to test me in single combat! I go to see things are taken care of the right way, the human way!

Deep in the Forgotten Forests there is money to be made. No one knows this, and the dangers that lie within better than the goblin inventor Rizzrak. Combining heavy onboard weapons with the ability to clear an entire field of timber with ease, Rizzrak created a machine that’s as deadly as it is economical. With a detachable saw, brush clearing blades, and a tree grabbing chain Rizzrak is as threatening to his enemies as he is to a fresh sapling. Rizzrak's may not be a noble spirit, but the Sentinels money is as good as any, as long as he keeps his grubbing hands off the Tree of Life!

Rizzrak the Goblin Shredder Skills

Timer Chain is an obvious choice for your first skill as it will help you chase or escape by latching to the tree. Maxing it first for the range increase. Second skill could be 1 level of Reactive Armor if you're facing physical harasser and you're having difficulties last hitting (ex: 2 aggressive range heroes). Otherwise just go for the Whirling Death. Always take Chakram whenever you can grab it. This skill set will allow you to shine early by producing lots of pure damage and give you a lot of kills.
