What is this addon?

Tired of having to run into your enemies every time you want to smack them? Frustrated by archmages dealing massive dmg with their disruption shield and powerful melee enemies jumping on your face? Meet sonist, brand new class evolution for bulwark that uses power of sound to strike from afar!

Technical information:
This addon adds new class evolution along with a new timed effect "Resonated" that makes enemies affected by knockback vulnerable to distant melee attacks. Addon changes the code of basic attack and all class attacks available for bulwark except rush. It also changes code of repulsion, shattering shout, battle call and battle cry. Onslaught, altho while active will make attacks resonate enemies while being sonist, is left untouched. Precise strikes and spell shield were also affected by changes.

Sonist is basically a bulwark that has an opportunity to use their attacks as if they were ranged. With shattering shout or battle cry sonist can apply "resonated" from a large distance and smash enemies without having to go to them, this is a good engage option. Then, using onslaught you can refresh "resonated" mark with every attack and knockback enemies even further, suppressing helpless enemies. But what if your enemies are knockback resistant or are dangerous even when they are not standing close? Well, I suppose they need line of sight to attack you but as a sonist you don't! Your attack pass through terrain, also remember that bulwark has track, so after resonating enemies you can hide behind a wall, use track and strike your enemies from the safe position! Good luck on your way to use sound as a weapon, which does not make any sense but sure is fun!

First version had some problems with bulwark vocal abilities resonating enemies even when user were not sonist, it is fixed in latest version.
