Speaking earlier today at a media conference in NCsoft’s very own Research and Development Center, Blade & Soul’s producer James Bae officially confirmed that the 6th class will be the Summoner, first teased back in one of the previous G*Star trailer.
The race portraying the Summoner is the Rin race. Although not mentioned by himself, various media is reporting the class to make an appearance in Closed Beta 3. With that said, it will take some time for the next phase to begin as NCsoft will be looking to tweak the game further.
James talked about how they are looking at feedback from players with regards to upcoming class designs, including the Gunner and Warlock (specialize in debuff spells). The team is also looking at suggestions for a class using musical instruments as its main weapon.
So after the Summoner is revealed, there will not be a new class for some time. A Blade & Soul smartphone application is also under consideration as well, similar to Aion and WoW’s but again it will be based on the community’s feedback.
