Classes

From GoS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

You must select a starting class and weapon focus for your character upon creation. There are 5 starting classes and LOTS of specialized classes.

Each starting class and equipment focus has 5 skills that the player may upgrade using skill points earned as they level. Each level of a particular skill increases in skill point cost - 2 points to make a skill level 2, 3 points to make it level 3, etc. Players initially earn 1 skill point per level. At every 15th level (15, 30, 45, etc), the skill points earned increases by 1 - at level 15, you receive 2 skill points at each level through 29, at level 30 you begin receiving 3 points, etc. This steadily-increasing skill point allowance offsets the faster increase in skill level upgrade costs. Once skills are upgraded, there is no way to regain or reassign those points, so choose your skills/upgrades carefully.

After every 20 levels (20, 40, 60, etc) you will be able to add a new specialized class to your character. Each specialized class gives your character 3 new skills to customize your character's fighting style. Certain specialized classes are restricted to male or female characters - only females can be Aes Sedai, only males can be Asha'man. Some are restricted to race/nationality - only Ogier can be Treesingers, only Aiel women can be Wise Ones, etc. Other specialized classes are mutually exclusive - example: you can't add Fanatic if you're already a Darkfriend. To make things simple, the pop-up menu on the "New Class" tab of the skills page will only show the classes that are available to you, based on your character's current build.


Skill Explanations[edit]

For skill formulas, 'X' represents the current level of the particular skill for your character. Skills that add a range of straight damage or defense, such as Weaken, are notated using a tilde '~' to show the range, NOT to represent a negative. For example, Weaken's "+X~2X damage" means you will do 1 to 2 more damage per skill level. So Weaken at level 4 would add 4-to-8 damage. Skills come in two types - Passive (P) and Active (A). Passive skills are always in effect. Active skills can be turned on and off to vary your character's stats, to customize offense or defense builds, etc. Passive skills are also prerequisites for Active Skills. In the skill listings below, each Active skill is adjacent to one or two Passive skills. Active skills cannot be upgraded to a higher level than the neighboring passive skill(s) - the in-game diagrams will make this clearer, if you can't figure it out from these text diagrams. For example: in the Armsman class below, Offensive Prowess must be upgraded to level 2 before Poised to Strike can be upgraded to level 2. In order to upgrade Under the Banner to level 2, BOTH neighboring Passive skills - Offensive Prowess and Defensive Prowess - must be at level 2.

Equipment Focus[edit]

When creating a character, the player must also choose one of the six core weapon types for the character to focus on - Sword, Axe, Spear, Bow, Bludgeon, Knife, or Weave. This selection determines which weapon skill set the character gets. At level 20, instead of choosing a Specialized Class (next section below), players may choose an additional equipment focus - either another of the core weapon types, or Shield, Body Armor, or Leg Armor. These skills are available on the skill page, on a separate tab from the starting class skills. Equipment focus skill trees include 2 Passive skills and 3 Active skills, with the same type of dependencies as starting class skill trees. The exception is Weave, which includes 5 Passive skills, without dependencies. The are some restrictions that apply to weapon focus based on the character's nationality (ex. Aiel can't choose Swords).
