Class

From Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A Class is a common method of arbitrating the capabilities of different player characters in Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen. A character class aggregates several abilities and aptitudes, and may also detail aspects of background and social standing, or impose behavior restrictions. Classes may be considered to represent archetypes, or specific careers.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen's use of a class based system entails having these classes fulfilling roles; especially in group and raid contexts. There will also be opportunities to focus each class on more specific and specialized roles, especially at higher levels. Classes fulfill distinct roles which will create vital interdependence between players, leading to a fulfilling social and cooperative experience.

Roles[edit | edit source]

Pantheon will use a quaternity system of roles: (This means there are four distinct roles available.)

1. Tank (Examples: Warrior, Paladin, Dire Lord)

2. Healer (Examples: Cleric, Druid, Shaman)

3. DPS (defined either Melee or Ranged; sometimes called Damage Dealers) (Examples: Rogue, Wizard)

4. Crowd Control (Examples: Enchanter, Bard)


Classes for Launch[edit | edit source]

There are 12 classes proposed for launch: Cleric, Dire Lord, Druid, Enchanter, Monk, Paladin. Ranger, Rogue, Shaman, Summoner, Warrior, Wizard


Cleric

Cleric

In the Frail Age, communion with Celestials is unheard of. The Cleric must bind to ancient Tomes containing the last vestiges of light from when the Celestials had drawn near. Paladin

Paladin

Once a Cleric, the Paladin has a call transcending the customs of the Cleric Order. Led by her convictions, she sets off to carry out her own righteous judgment. Warrior

Warrior

The Warrior seemingly defies limits of physical strength, ability and resilience. However, not content with fortitude alone, he also refines his mind, becoming a master strategist in battle.
Dire Lord

Dire Lord

Legends speak of Dire Lords capable of mastering the crippling power of fear, with some able to manipulate the ‘essence’ of living things--even their very blood. Ranger

Ranger

In untamed regions, the Ranger is a versatile and ferocious warrior, united with the land and animals he communes with. Rogue

Rogue

The treacherous Rogue is far more than a trickster. With her daggers, she is a ruinous force that smiles at the dark places and unravels her enemies with terrifying efficiency.
Monk

Monk

Through longstanding discipline and unwavering obedience to ancient teachings, the Monk wields their mind and body as a devastating, holistic weapon against their enemies. Summoner

Summoner

The Summoner has developed a powerful arcane command to conjure sustenance, tools, barricades, weaponry, even fantastic creatures of incredible strength...all of this at her whim. Enchanter

Enchanter

Through a single word, the Enchanter can turn the intent of an enemy and break even the strongest of wills into submission.
Wizard

Wizard

Enigmatic and isolated within the floating keep of the Skyhold, the Gnomes are masters of the arcane, and the peculiar. Druid

Druid

Once a unified and victorious host, the Ogres require a new breed of warriors to restore their heritage of militant glory. Shaman

Shaman

With an insatiable greed and appetite for carnage, the Skar fear nothing and have proven to be their own greatest adversary.
