Details Released on Aion's Spiritmaster

| | Comments (0)
NCsoft released additional information on its upcoming massively multiplayer game Aion: The Tower of Eternity.
Aion should begin beta testing in early 2008 and may be released later next year. NCsoft released information on the Spiritmaster class for the game.

The following text was created by NCsoft and is presented, unaltered:

"Using powerful magics derived from the forces of nature, Spiritmasters will find themselves an integral part of any adventuring party due to their ability to summon and control fierce creatures based on the four cardinal elements of Earth, Fire, Wind and Water.

"The Spiritmaster's chief responsibility is to summon and control elemental spirits, powerful forms of nature incarnate. This is done through a series of specific commands, such as attack and defend, that can be given via a simple onscreen control system. Other, more specialized and yet to be revealed commands exist beyond these basic controls, with each form of elemental spirit having its own unique skills and abilities.

"The challenge for the Spiritmaster comes from recognizing which element to call on at any given time. Earth spirits are strong in defense abilities, Fire spirits specialize in ranged attacks, Water spirits concentrate on healing powers while Wind spirits are best utilized in melee attacks. While it's not possible to control different types of elemental spirits at the same time - Spiritmasters cannot control both an Earth and Water spirit simultaneously, for instance - by summoning the correct spirit for the situation in hand, Spiritmasters have the power to turn even the most desperate battles into a complete rout of the enemy. A situation that could prove immensely useful when adventurers come up against some of the more powerful rogue elemental spirits that wander Aion's... world."
