The age old question of “what class should I play?” has been plaguing gamers since the dawn of MMOs. It’s a common question, but after playing a class for 6 hours only to to realize its not the right fit, it’s an incredibly crucial decision to make at such an early stage of gameplay. In response to this issue, developer Allods Team has dropped a new blog post detailing Skyforge’s class system, which grants players access to several classes at the same time.

Now, class swapping isn’t anything inherently new to MMO’s, but traditionally character progress is independently tracked for each class. In Skyforge, Allods Team says a character’s progress will carry over across each class equally, making it easy for players to switch over to a class that better suits their play-style or the encounter. Individual abilities must still be unlocked for each class though, and while players can unlock initial class skills fairly quickly, they can spend additional time focusing on one particular class in order to tap into its full potential.

To make things easy, at the start of Skyforge players can choose from three starter classes, the Lighbinder, Paladin and Cryomancer. From this point, players can progress towards five new intermediate or five new advance classes. Allods estimates it could take a player a few days to open up a new intermediate class like the Berserker, while an advance class such as the Gunner could take weeks. Changing between these unlocked classes can be done from anywhere, just as long as you aren’t in combat.

Allods Team says Skyforge’s class system should alleviate issues with filling certain roles for dungeons and can give a group the class flexibility it needs to tackle a particularly troublesome boss. Even in PvP, players will be able to swap from defensive to more offensively inclined classes as objectives change during a match.

  1. I played Allods for about a year and can say it was the most cash shop based game. I remember how popular the game was ath launch, but over time the updates were “killing” the game.
    Rune system was absolutely expensive, lucky box events etc.
    Atm company only show videos and notes about the mechanics / gameplay / graphics of the game, and nothing about the economy, so …

      • I do too but, then I think and remember that Obsidian, known for KOTOR2, South Park The Stick Of Truth, Dungeon Siege III, Neverwinter Nights 2 and all expansions, Alpha Protocol, and Fallout: New Vegas.

        So I have faith in them.

          “I do too but, then I think and remember that Obsidian, known for KOTOR2, South Park The Stick Of Truth, Dungeon Siege III, Neverwinter Nights 2 and all expansions, Alpha Protocol, and Fallout: New Vegas, has done well in the past.”

          So I have faith in them.

          Sorry for the incomplete sentence up top lol. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. “Allods Team says a characterโ€™s progress will carry over across each class equally”

    mmmh does that mean that every endgame characters will have every classes unlocked ? need some form of diversity please, inb4 everyone playing the same op class in pvp

    • It means you will still need to unlock the skills for each class, but your character’s base stats will carry over to each class as you level up. So at say, level 30 you have 5000 hp and 100 attack, these stats carry over from class to class.

    • As spunk noted the, stats carry over. It doesn’t mean that when a high level unlocks a class it will be innately op, you still have to progress the classes skills individually.

      Even if there may be a powerhouse class, there will be more diversity, if you can interchange classes. You won’t have to “start over” to play a different class, so if you feel like making a change, you can just make the change.

    • They’re talking about the Allods creator’s new game Skyforge, this isn’t an expansion for Allods. But yes, Allods is still alive also.

          • Have you ever heard of Google? God you Americans are so stupid. Do you guys even study other languages? probably not because all i see from America is people setting theirself on fire. Stupid Americans.

          • I like to perform fellatio on overweight men at truck stops! Also Scott Sigurbjartsson is a little queer who thinks he can police the internet. I ain’t gone losers. You can’t ban what you can’t catch, stupid chavs.

        • Your definitely not the original Pewdiepie so don’t use his name with such harsh words and slander you silly fan boy.

          • You are right, i’m not Pewdiepie. I’m a Duck, but the the real question is how do you know? WAS IT THE BARRELS THAT TOLD YOU?
