Today the long-awaited Dark Knight completes Guardians of Ember’s class system, adding a whole host of new build and combination possibilities. With the release of the sixth class in Early Access, players will be actively involved in the final development and balancing process.
The Dark Knight represents the sixth and final class being added to the Hack’n’Slash MMORPG Guardians of Ember. Born out of the desperation and hopelessness that befell Olyndale, the Dark Knight is a merciless fighter who uses both black magic and toxic attacks. Players utilize his or her skills to their advantage by poisoning groups of enemies in one strike, sucking them dry like a leech. Because of their cold nature, Dark Knights are extraordinary lone fighters, who trust in their strength alone. This affords them magnificent attack capabilities but gives them the disadvantage of not being able to heal their allies.
InselGames looks forward to working with the community on the final balancing of the Dark Knight class according to CEO Patrick Streppel: “We know that balancing this new class is crucial because nothing is more frustrating than something that overpowers all the others. This is why despite a careful design process we are asking our community to give us a helping hand by testing the new character in the field during our final weeks in Early Access.”
Guardians of Ember – from the developers of Runes of Magic – combines Hack’n’Slash action with a full MMORPG and is available via Steam Early Access, celebrating the Dark Knight update with a new trailer and a 33% discount this week.
