gPotato Europe unveils information on player classes in Allods Online
Melee and Ranged fighters for both the Empire and the League explained and illustrated
DUBLIN – August 11th, 2009 – Allods Online is the upcoming free-to-play AAA MMORPG developed by Astrum Nival and published by Gala Networks Europe across Europe. It will be available as a free-to-play download from the gPotato.eu portal this Autumn.
Allods Online gives players twenty eight playable classes to choose from. These are derived from the game’s six races and eight archetypes. Each of these classes has its own class-specific special move, as well as their own armour set. This will allow players to develop their own range of powers, appearance and gameplay strategy. The gPotato team is proud to unveil an overview of the melee and ranged fighters in Allods Online. These feature classes from both the League and Empire, and cover the Warrior, Scout and Templar archetypes.
Every party that wants to survive an adventure in the dangerous world of Allods Online will need a heavily armoured fighter with them. Taking the hits and protecting their companions are the Warrior archetype. This archetype has combat advantages which put them squarely in the front line of battles. The Kanians have their ‘Champions’, the Gibberlings have ‘Brawlers’ that use their agility to hold their own in a fight, the Xadaganian ‘Vanquisher’ has higher magic resistance than his peers, while the Orc ‘Brute’ is a strong, tough fighter.
Working alongside these walking tanks are other important fighters: Templars. The Templar archetype has special self-shield that will absorb some of the damage they receive. Players will be able to choose from the Kanian ‘Knight’ and Elven ‘Paladin’ that can inflict heavy damage on their opponents. Alternatively, they can choose a Xadaganian ‘Commissar’ who can lower damages on his entire party with his battle cry, or an Orc ‘Reaver’, destroying everything in its path.
Finally, the last of the non-casting archetypes is the light-footed and stealthy Scout. The Scout archetype can enchant their arrows with various types of magic. Kanian ‘Stalkers’ can shoot a blinding arrow. Gibberling ‘Tricksters’ are specialist in rooting their enemies with their net. Xadaganian ‘Saboteurs’ are specialists with anything to do with explosives, and a penchant for laying mines, while Orc ‘Headhunters’ are fierce trackers that few of their targets are able evade and survive.
Depending on the Archetype chosen, each class has its own special abilities, look, style and tactics. This gives players plenty of choice depending on whether they want to side with the league or the Empire.
