Classes in the highly anticipated free-to-play MMORPG Aura Kingdom (aka Fantasy Frontier Online in its original, Taiwanese release) were revealed by Aeria Games thanks to a new trailer and a few screenshots. Players will have eight classes available.
The Guardian, Ravager, and Duelist are more suited to fans of melee combat, while the Wizard, Sorcerer, and Bard will cater for those who are fans of spellcasting. The Gunslinger and the Grenadier will be the main choice for players who love to attack their foes at a distance. While each class has its own weapon of choice, when players reach level 40 they’ll have the option to choose a secondary weapon.
Secondary weapon choice offers a great measure of versatility and allows players to expand their role in a party. Adding to that versatility are Ultimate Skills, which offer choices to enhance a character as it levels up. Certain Ultimate Skills can modify a character’s existing abilities—damage-dealers could opt to add a stun or a damage-over-time component to one of their main attacks, for example. Once learned, Ultimate Skills are free and easy to swap around, allowing a player to tailor their skill set to better handle any given challenge.
A player’s selected secondary weapon also has the potential to combo with their primary one, opening up access to a wide range of unique abilities. Fortunately, players have the option to change their choice of secondary weapon to experiment with the many possible combinations and find their favorite combo attacks.
