The crafty, lethal Gunner comes to Karos Online

Seoul, Korea– 13th of August 2010 – Players of NHN Corporation's free-to-play MMORPG Karos Online will have a  new playable class to enjoy from today: the Gunner! The first revealed class of the  new Vaneesean race, Gunners aim to leave their mark on their enemies by using powerful  ranged weapons. The Gunner class will be available for free to all Karos players through an automatic update of the game.

Although physically smaller than other classes, Gunners have a tough and resilient nature. They are known throughout the world as shrewd merchants and engineers, but are also greatly feared, as their masterfully crafted weapons allow them to win a fight from great distances. Indeed, it's rare for unlucky victims of a Vaneesean Gunner to ever see their opponent's face! The Vaneeseans are also known for ruthlessly profiteering from war, offering their engineering skills to all factions -- their prices are high, but the money is needed to keep their weapons in perfect condition so they can maintain their edge in battle.

As with all classes in Karos, higher level Gunners are able to specialize, focusing on dealing damage as a Sharpshooter or crafting and laying traps as a  Creator. Sharpshooters can then specialize further into deadly  Snipers, skilled in taking out a single target quickly, or  Desperados, taking on whole groups with powerful area damage. Creators can become famous  Maestros, known for crafting some of the best items in Asmara, or  Mercenaries, expert in taking out opponents with deadly traps.
