Glacial Berserker Class
Member Only Preview/Test Starts Now!
Next week, we'll launch this year's Frostval Class - the Glacial Berserker. It is a pretty cool class, by all reports (pun intended, of course). If you have an upgraded account, you can try out the skills RIGHT NOW and let Arklen (our lead class designer) know what you think! The skills may change based on player feedback... so if you want to have a hand in fine-tuning our newest class, now's your chance!
This is the "test" version of the Glacial Berserker class so you can try it out in advance and let us know your thoughts on the skills. Once the class is ready to go live, its skills and art will change to those of the default warrior class. You can either keep the "test" version with the warrior class skills/art OR exchange it for a free version of the class armor.
Once the class does go live, it will be available to ALL players with either rank 10 rep OR 2000 AdventureCoins.
Class Skills: Subject to change!
