The Fallen Earth team at Icarus Studios has provided Massively with a developer journal that focuses on character builds in the post-apocalyptic MMO. Being a classless system, players are left to build their characters on their own.
As they advance through the game, players are given points that can then be spent to improve their abilities.
In the journal, the developers reveal the details of that system as well as offering suggestions for what kinds of abilities will comprise specific character types:
