As promised to Legendary Tier Kickstarter Backers, their early access to the Paladin class begins now. Good news for all players, as it means it will be coming for everyone to earn next.
If you were a Kickstarter backer who pledged at the Legendary Tier or above, the Paladin class is now available to you in your class menu. Please help us test it out :D
Our upcoming new classes are all fun and unique. You will be pleased to know that the Necromancer, Ninja, and Alpha Pirate / Pirate class are getting close. Today the entire team were tasked with play testing early versions of these classes and their skills. (Actually, I am the only member of the team who has not gotten to log in and try them all out yet.) Alpha Pirate is the most challenging, as we need to add the code for both dual weapons, and for dual hand cannons. This will result in the addition of a new weapon type to the game. The most fun by far is definitely Necromancer which allows you to summon short-lived undead minions.
Our goal is for each class to have a unique story that unlocks once you obtain it. I am working the Paladin class into our Doomwood remake. Originally we thought about Necromancer coming from the Dragon's Graveyard (and it still might), but I it is really temping to do a Tower of Necromancy release deeply connected to the new DoomWood too. Paladins vs Necromancers is a perfectly (and very thematically) two sided conflict like Vampires vs Werewolves, or Dragons vs Dragonslayers, or Pirates vs Ninjas.
There are certainly a lot of things to look forward to in the near future.
