|Berlin/San Francisco: |
|Ever since the great empire of DragonSoul has fallen, a war between the eight kingdoms has waged and many young adventurers have united with the armies to guide their own empire to glory and honor as fearless Warriors, mighty Mages, unerring Hunters or sneaky Assassins. Each one of them has got their own unique skills which makes it the right tactics that decide in the end whether players end up winners or losers from the bloody PvP battles. |
In order to win some insight on which skills are necessary for a successful fight, today we introduce the exclusively female Hunter class.
Known as an ice cold and grumpy person, it has always been the mission of the Hunter to turn enemies into pin cushions from a distance. Outstanding stamina and high precision make Hunters serious long-range combatants who have specialized in using bows or crossbows.
Specializations for the Archer:
In order to deepen the skills of archery, it is naturally necessary to carry a bow. With it, Archers can skillfully cast various attacks on the battlefield: Poisoned Arrows can petrify their victims or they darken the sun with a cloud of arrows and attack entire groups this way. But beware! Whenever opponents storm towards them, Hunters can rarely withstand. Especially reloading makes them vulnerable to attacks. Thus, the advantage in long-range combat goes along with a weakness in melee attacks. Successful Hunters always depend on their precision, speed and stamina.
Specializations for the Arbalist:
Arbalists inevitably need a crossbow for combat. One can find them in the middle of the battle rather than remote positions, with this heavy weapon which can also be used for melee attacks by swinging it around. However, due to the heavy and goring crossbow, they move significantly slower than Archers. This is why it can easily cost their lives if they remain in one and the same position for too long in the heat of the battle. On the other hand, a lightly-armored opponent can meet their doom once the bolt of a crossbow hits. In short, a crossbow can be both a blessing as well as a curse in the battlefield: goring yet heavy and thus exhausting.
The Hunters’ tactical skills can be deepened independent of their specialization. They mainly consist of traps and supporting skills. They help them improve their attack-, defense- and controlling skills. For instance, Arbalists can install ballistas in the battlefield which automatically attack any opponent within range. Players can improve and combine these skills according to their own preferences in order to individually specialize their character on the highest level.
