In their most recent MMORPG.com developer blog, the team from Wonderking Online discusses character classes and visual inspiration.
Describe the different character classes for us.
The four classes in WonderKing are the Swordsman, Mage, Scout, and Thief. Each of these classes may take one of two paths that fit their play style.
The Swordsman uses either a melee weapon and a shield, or a two-hander to fight enemies. The Swordsman’s main attribute is strength, which mainly adds to the attack power of the Swordsman, but we also wanted the Swordsman to play the role of tank in WonderKing. Generally the Swordsman class has the highest HP and defense, thus, unofficially, vitality is another main attribute of the Swordsman. The Swordsman eventually may take the path of a mighty defender, the Knight, or, an offensive juggernaut, the Warrior.
