As the Friends & Family Alpha 0 event gets underway, the Ashes of Creation site has been updated with a chart that reveals all of the classes available in the game. Players will choose a base class (Fighter, Tank, Rogue, Ranger, Mage, Summoner, Cleric or Bard) and later in the game a secondary class will become available. Each secondary brings a unique way to play the game. "A Warden must feel uniquely different from a Spell Hunter & a Beastmaster must feel unique when partnered with a Necro".
When players choose their primary class, it’s not just dictating how the next several hundred hours of gameplay will go. The secondary class choice, which comes after some time getting used to the world of Verra, will be more fluid. If you choose the Fighter and the Rogue to make a Shadowblade, but eventually want to try your hand at Summoning to make a Bladecaller, you’ll be able to do so. It’s only the primary class that cannot be changed. And hey, that’s what alts are for!
Over the course of the next several months, the developers will be laying out details on lore, skills and mechanics for each of the 64 possible primary / secondary combination.
Check the chart below to see where you fit in.
