Classes

Classes and Class Bonuses

Your class determines how much of each skill your character will be able to learn. In addition to the short description provided for each class there is a list of primary skills, secondary skills and weapon/armor limitations for the class.

Your special skill is the skill that your character excels at and can go to 135 is it is specialized in a primary slot. Primary skills are skills that your character will be able to earn 95 (not specialized) or 120 (specialized) skill. Secondary skills are able to earn up to 75 (not specialized) or 80 (specialized).

All other skills not mentioned can go up to 60 points. All skills classified as a tradeskill can be placed in any slot but they will only go to 100 points if placed in primary.
Some classes get an extra bonus while in combat. Fighters, Knights, Paladins, Clerics and Priests that are wearing mostly chain or plate will get a bonus damage reduction.

 

Assassin

Cleric/Priest
In combat, clerics and priests could be compared to a tank mage. They can wear strong armor and are masters of both the mace and the spell book. Furthermore, they are unparalleled in the healing arts. The primary difference between priests and clerics is the way that they are role-played; The Cleric is a virtue follower while the Priest tends to focus more on a divinity. Priests get the Aura of Water special ability while Clerics get Aura of Healing.

Crusader
Coming soon.

 

Disciple
The Disciple is the precursor to having a Crusader, Revenant or Spellweaver. When you first start as a disciple in the Hall of Heroes and you exit through the gate, instead of going to Valhalla, you are taken to the mysterious island of Nazireth. You will learn about why you were not welcome in Valhalla. But not all is lost as the Masters on the island have found a possible way to Valhalla.

The Disciple is the start of a new class quest. When you choose Disciple from the character creation gate and leave the Hall of Heroes, you will find that you have been rejected from Valhalla. Now, you must prove yourself to one of the Masters and plot to gain entry back into Valhalla. It is a hard life for the Disciple. Your skills are nearly non-existent and all will only raise to 60 except wrestling which can go to 80.

Once you have gained one of the Master’s trust by helping out with the settlement, you can choose one of three disciplines: The Crusader which uses Chivalry, the Revenant which uses Necromancy or the Spellweaver which uses Animal Lore.

Starting Tips

  • When creating your character, choose at least one fighting skill. You will be doing a lot of melee combat. There are practice dummies to train your skills. Other good skills to choose are a weapon skill, tactics, healing and camping.
  • Don’t stray too far from the Outpost. The further you go, the harder it becomes.
  • Learn where the healer is located.
  • Take time to earn gold and raise some skills before venturing out.
  • If you want to change your class/race later, you can do so at the character creation gate or return to the Outpost to one of the Masters (returning is a free change). If you choose Disciple at the character gate, you will start over again!

 

Druid/Necromancer
The nukers of the game, designed for massive spell damage but quite fragile. These classes need to learn to stay out of the way, letting their skill in magery do the trick while letting better suited warriors hold off their targets.
Druidry and Necromancy are directly-opposing schools of magic. The use of one will always detract from the other.

Spellweaver
The Spellweaver uses their knowledge of the natural order of things to achieve great power in their spells. They are able to cast from their spellbook with weapons and gain more power with more Spellweavers around. A hardcore character class requiring the Disciple to start a character quest.

The Spellweaver cannot simply pick up a spellbook like a mage and begin casting. They require careful thought and study before they are able to wield their devastating spells onto their enemies.

Before you can cast a spell from the spellweaver spellbook, you must obtain an Arcane Focus Crystal. This crystal determines the power and/or duration of your spells. First you must stand upon a pentagram or arcane circle (made by the pentagram or arcane circle deed). Cast Arcane Circle and you will have the Arcane Focus Crystal in your pack until you log off.

Spellweaving uses the Animal Lore/Druidry skill.

Only Spellweavers can cast from the Spellweaver Spellbook. Anyone can cast from the scrolls. High level Spellweavers can cast the spell from the spellbook holding any weapons.

The Spellweaver is considered to be a hardcore character. There are no special abilities and many tertiary skills as well as some trade skills will only go to 40 instead of 60.
