Duke of Mount Deer is an upcoming MMORPG by ChangYou, which is primarily based in China with MMO portals in North America and Europe. If you did not know, Duke of Mount Deer is based on the similarly named novel by world renown Chinese novelist, Louis Cha (or Jin Yong). The game is developed by ChangYou’s 2 main studios in China and Korea, also the first title from the Korea branch. In this post, I will be going through briefly about the game’s class system. More information about the game can be found here.
As seen in the video above, there are 6 battle classes for players to choose from. Interestingly, each character will be able to contain 3 classes, interchangeable at any time. This seems to be a new trend in Asian Free to Play MMOs, with the other being Eden Eternal. ChangYou recently teased about another set of non-battle classes, which are related to several life/ gathering/ crafting skills. If these new classes are part of the main class system, it will be interesting to see how players choose the 3 classes for their characters, given the life skill classes are unable to enter combat at all.
It is said that these classes are essential in maintaining a guild and keeping it strong. Note that all servers, not channels, in Duke of Mount Deer are connected, hence players who tend to craft more will bed able to make a fortune from almost everyone in the game. More information to come as the non-combat classes are revelaed.
