Only a few weeks remain until the highly anticipated release of Fires of Shadowforge, the fifth chapter of the fantasy MMORPG Runes of Magic. Frogster is providing details on the two new classes, the Champion and the Warlock, and their special abilities.

Like the Warlock, the Champion class will only be available to the Dwarves. One of the unique abilities of this class is its capacity to transform into a Runic Robot. This form allows for additional devastating magic and attacks that are particularly useful in melee combat, making the Champion very effective at soaking up damage.

With access to the Dwarves’ ancient blacksmithing skills, the Champion has the potential to create and equip powerful weapons and armour. Armaments embedded with runes offer nearly impenetrable protection without forfeiting mobility. Long familiarity with the forge hammer has made the Champion’s hands into efficient instruments of creation and destruction. This barbaric combination of strength and swiftness fortifies their reputation as steel demons of the battlefield, and makes a Champion the ideal tank and attack class. Their broad variety of in-game capabilities will be a pleasure for veteran gamers.

In contrast, the Warlock’s fighting style is characterised by long-range attacks and sapping enemy strength. Through exhaustive experimentation with the dark magic of the Shadowforge Dwarves, this class has developed techniques for harnessing spiritual energy in order to become powerful spellcasters. With this mystical power, Warlocks are capable of both tearing enemies to pieces and helping allies in need. In direct combat, the Warlock can thus be played as a support class or an additional damage dealer.
