Are you the kind of MMO player who enjoys turning enemies into posed popsicles ripe for the shattering? I suppose you enjoy the endless supply of crowd control, burst damage and the frustrated tears of enemies trying their hardest to move more than 2 feet at a time. If that’s the case, you might want to check out Skyforge’s newly revealed class, The Cryomancer, whose best described as a mad scientist mixed with a frost mage. The MR. Freeze of Skyforge’s fantasy world.

Thanks to the Cryomancer’s cryogenerator situated on his back, the cold conjurer can pluck water molecules right out of the air and turn an otherwise sunny day into a winter wonderland. Practically every Cryomancer ability possesses some form of crowd control, from rolling over enemies with giant snowballs, to trapping them as ice statues in a gigantic icy dome. Even when the action gets too hot, the Cryomancer can quickly jettison themselves backwards leaving a trail of ice to slow down any attackers in pursuit.

Cryomancer-Bubble-Freeze

Allods Team says players will have full reign over their ability and passive customization, allowing them to focus on dealing damage or just simply making life miserable for their enemies through countless crowd control options. Despite the Cryomancer being a ranged caster, the class is quite mobile and can cast its abilities on the go, usually instantly. This makes for a fairly dynamic playstyle and offsets the Cryomancer’s relatively low health.

Further details and screenshots for the Cryomancer can be found on the official Skyforge site here.

    it doesnt matter how cool the game looks, mostly due to the fact THERE IS NO JUMP BUTTON. many many of us cant play a game that forces us to stay glued to the ground.

    • Sexlightning on July 24, 2014

      I dunno. Mass effect was pretty great, even sans jumps

    • LordHikaru on July 24, 2014

      Man its terrible when space bar doesn’t do anything. Darn habitual space bar pressing. lol.

      • LordHikaru on July 24, 2014

        Man its terrible when I pleasure overweight men for pennies at truck stops. Darn habitual hohmo BJ-giving. lol.

    • Curst on July 25, 2014

      Umm, do you jump alot when you walk around in real life? I bet you pick your nose much more often. So, maybe characters should pick their noses when you press Space?

    • Scott Sigurbjartsson on July 26, 2014

      There is a jump. It’s mapped to the “V” key. See it’s in Russian and that is their “Jump” button.

      They already said we can map it to the space bar lol.

      Crying over misinformation.

      • Scott Sigurbjartsson on July 29, 2014

        There is a jump. It’s mapped to the “V” key. See it’s in ‘Murican and that is their “Perform fellatio” button.

        They already said we can map it to the space bar lol.

        Crying over me providing fellatio to overweight men at truck stops.

    wasnt Allods heavily p2w? Game looks pretty good, just worried about the company behind it
    Also that skill tree looks exactly like path of exile lol

    • LordHikaru on July 24, 2014

      I would suspect it won’t be so heavy this time around. Will just have to see what changes they make in that regard.

    • Scott Sigurbjartsson on July 26, 2014

      Gpotatoe made it P2W. Gpotatoe does NOT exist. We have Obsidian. You know the guys who brought us KOTOR 2, South Park and The Stick of Truth, Fallout New Vegas, Dungeon Siege 3, etc.

  3. ZeonZ on July 24, 2014

    I just love how they made skill effects and big world
    is this going to be f2p or p2p anyone know?
    tnx!

    • bl00rg on July 24, 2014

      f2p acoording to their forums

    • Demonix on August 2, 2014

      Yes considering it is developed by the same people behind Allods I will assume it will be F2P

    Rogue/Archer <3

      Archer! Range ftw.

    • Scott Sigurbjartsson on July 26, 2014

      No archer/Ranger.

      It’s Gunner.

      • anon on January 23, 2015

        Gunner would be ranged tank, they’re probably gonna make a ranged DPS at one point too

    Personally, if I happen to choose mage, I’m a dark/light/fire type of guy.

    • LordHikaru on July 23, 2014

      well there’ll several other classes so it’s a possibility you’ll find one of those types that’ll suit your tastes in some way.

      • LordHikaru on July 29, 2014

        well there’ll several other ways to perform fellatio on overweight men so it’s a possibility you’ll find one of those types that’ll suit your tastes in some way.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
