As I previewed last week, Ether Saga (CN) is going to get a big expansion update soon, translated as Tale of the Demon King. Even though a new race, Mozu (Mo = Demon, Zu = tribe/race) was confirmed (along with several new maps, equipments, monsters etc), the accompanying new classes were just only revealed yesterday. With Ether Saga being the last game to get a major update in Perfect World’s portfolio, let us take a look at what these 2 classes have to offer.
1. Poison Master (loose translation)
This class basically utilizes poisonous worms to deal most of the damage. The tribe who specialize in this art was actually descended from the Mo race (refer to my previous post), but they ended up living in the mountains for decades and eventually forget about their roots, until now that is. The poison and worms will bring many negative effects on targets, including bleeding, blindness and of course, poisoned. Yes, this class deals mostly damage over time (DoT), making enemies suffer a slow and painful death.
2. Berserker (loose translation)
Descendants of one of the 4 founding tribes of the Mo race, the people of this tribe is considered to have pure demon blood. Naturally, they are born with skin as hard as iron, which few weapons can penetrate. Wielding all kinds of gigantic weapons, they are considered as the bravest warriors on the battlefield. Even if they are war-loving, the people of this tribe are always willing to lend a helping hand to one of its kind. Berserkers are normally recognized by their pale skin and protruding horn at their forehead. Their large variety of skills are not only awesome for dealing Area of Effect (AoE) damage, but there are several “ultimate” skills which will prove the difference during PvP.
The expansion also added an elemental attribute to each of the 4 races. Mozu will be Fire, Renzu will be Water, Shenzu will be Wind and Yaoh will be Earth.
