Rend Devs Give Insight into Primary & Secondary Classes

The Rend site has been published that reveals the four character classes coming with the game: Assassin, Soldier, Survivalist and Mystic. What makes Rend different than other ARPGs / survival games is that class isn't chosen at creation, but comes at level two. In addition, players will be able to choose one of the remaining three classes as a secondary. Each point applied in a path, unlocks different tiers of abilities. 

According to the devs, an Assassin / Soldier (primary / secondary) will play very differently from a Soldier / Assassin. 

Assassins are stealthy, quick combatants. Spending points in the path allows for more headshot damage, decreases fall damage and more. At tier six, Assassins gain Camouflage to keep them hidden as long as they are not attacking.

Soldiers is the heavily armored fighter that can pack a lot of weight around. The more points spent in the path means that players can deal more damage up close and personal. At tier 6, Soldiers can access a huge health pool for a short period of time.

Survivalists, as the name implies, are the ones are fast moving gatherers. They can stay away from the faction for longer periods of time and suffer less from environmental damage. They have an increased harvesting yield, move faster while mounted and, at Tier 6, can find food and water in unlikely places.

Mystics are secretive who like to spend time in the Spirit world. They are a buffing support class that can increase, for instance, stamina regeneration for allies, increase armor or reistances, etc. 

One of our main goals when designing these classes was to give an actual choice to the player. Each class has a benefit and a drawback, sometimes in the same talent tier. For example, the Assassin’s tier 1 grants 10% increased sprinting speed (sounds awesome!) but also increases the sprint stamina drain rate by 7% (doh!). So, an Assassin can run faster, but for a much shorter amount of time.
