i kinda agree with dragon on this one, not all that amazed by soul smith and flesh weaver sounds....evil.
A stab, stab, pierce, pierce class would be nice although it would probably be between 50%-75% stab or pierce the others would have to be magic based attacks, or "power up" skills.
Not suggesting just thinking rationally.
That new tier of chickencow class feels like a perfect fusion of magic and warrior, but i get your drift more warrior, less magic, more skills affected by Strength and Dexterity, less magic and intellect.
Thing is soul smith and Fleshweaver sound like classes based no Str and Dex, would we need to study under yulgar and get the max weaponsmith before we could move on to soul smithing? done that, but this sounds interesting.
Honestly Soulweaver is like a 3 on my top 5 class ranks, story wise awesome, hyped and so on, chaos weaver doesnt have much hype from me, and the other two.... like i said, flesh weaver sounds plain evil while soul smith may spark some interest depending on the skills.
I would feel better if we had some information on them in general, before we discuss it.
