Prime: Battle for Dominus is setting itself up as a unique three-faction MMO that has landed on a lot of folks' radar recently. Yesterday it was announced that Prime would feature three factions, each with six classes for a total of eighteen classes! MMORPG.com Managing Editor Bill Murphy managed to corner Prime's Sanya Weathers for an exclusive Q&A all about the classes. Check it out and then let us know what you think!
The press release mentions that there will be six classes for each faction, totaling 18. Are these 18 unique classes, or are they more mirrors of each other with some distinctive flair between factions?
Unique mirrors? The archetypes in each faction share some abilities, and others are unique to that faction. So, a Hunter Killer, a Spy, and a Wraith are all stealth classes, and that archetype shares some abilities - but each one has some abilities that are unique to that faction. We were going for unique feel without OMGKILLME balance problems.
