(English website) I am not sure what to call this game, as it is known as Empire of the Immortals in China while it is called War of the Immortals in the upcoming North America server. Nonetheless, I decided to go with what you see above. The game got its first major expansion just last week titled Clash of the Gods, with the new Soul Reaper (or Hunter) class as one of the main highlights. I played till level 50+, but it just took me around half a day to do so.
Soul Reaper’s main focus will be on health, mana and intelligence. A close range character (but not exactly melee yet) due to its scythe, it severely lacks AOE skills compared to other classes. But the Soul Reaper makes up to it with its various devastating single-target damage. As you can see in the videos above, I simply 2-hit enemies a few levels above me with equipments from quests which are not upgraded. Its XP skill (seen in Forsaken World and BoI) will be a grim reaper with flying scythes.
The veteran way of playing this character will be the 3 forms (Dark, Light and Demonic) it can change to. Each only lasts around 10 seconds, but several skills dish out more damage, costs less mana and gives more negative effects to targets when hit. I still have no idea why did the developers place such a short amount of time on the transformation buffs.
Dark form will be a DPS build, Light will be defensive while Demonic will be a crowd control build. Players can learn these 3 skills as they level, but only 1 can be activated at any time. One of it only opens up at level 105.
Other new features updated include the new Bloodline System, which is a set of new skills players can unlock to further customize and strengthen their characters. The Family System has also been replaced by the Legion System, with total members increased to 60 (minimum 40) while an Alliance can hold up to 3 Legions. Alliance, as you might know in BoI, is needed for territorial control wars and various PvP functions.
There are new maps, new pets and evolutions and dungeons as well. I shall not spoil too much of the fun since the English server is coming soon (link). I played the new Enchantress class previously, so click here (link) to have a look!
