Sony Online just revealed three more classes for the highly anticipated free MMORPG EverQuest Next via PC Gamer UK. This takes the grand total so far up to eight classes, since we already knew five: Blademaster, Wizard, Tempest, Rogue and Warrior. The classes just revealed are the Beast Lord, Cleric and Necromancer. EQN is reportedly having over 40 classes for you to discover and mix at your will, so there’s still plenty to know.
There are also some details on the three classes as well as on the Tempest. The following info was dug up by Jaedia’s Menagerie:
Cleric: Wields either a two-handed hammer or a hammer and shield. Buffing and protecting allies is the typical Clerical duty, but these magic men and women do it with the power of fire, which gives them some killing power, too.
Necromancer: Wielding a tome or a dagger and focus object, the Necromancer summons destructive chaotic energies and comes with a companion: a Monstrosity that grows in power with its master.
Beast Lord: If you’re a fan of ‘trampling’ and ‘savaging,’ the Beast Lord’s furry friends make excellent companions. You can do your own savaging, too, with a flail and shield combination, or a spear for medium range attacks.
Tempest: With two blades or one two-handed blade, the Tempest ‘dances across the battlefield’ and unleashes powerful winds and blasts of lightning. Ought to appeal to fans of action RPGs.
