[Source] Fansite TreeOfSavior has recently translated the latest Tree of Savior developer post, focusing on the Squire and Centurion from the Swordsman class tree. They will be added during Closed Beta 2 in South Korea, hence the studio has taken this chance to give an introduction. First off, the Squire is a supportive class with no active combat skills. Yes, no damage skills.
Squire can “arrest” monsters and limit their movement. This skill can even be used on larger monsters. This class is also able to repair damaged items like the NPC does, and even does better by adding additional durability points (such as 58/38) and also add temporary bonus stats (such as ATK +14 for 200 attacks). With all these, Squire can apparently do all these while on the battlefield!
Finally, Squire has the ability to set up a camp anywhere in the field for his party members to return and rest. Party members can use the warehouse function, or enjoy the snacks prepared by the Squire which can temporarily increase party member’s stats such as maximum HP, maximum SP and etc. Also, buffs cast on each party members inside the base camp get double duration time!
Centurion is next, and this is a class even above the Squire and introduced even before Closed Beta 1 started. This is a class who can activate formations which other players can enter into the slots. Control is given to the Centurion upon entering, though players can leave the formation any time. The formation user interface has been improved, and here are some of the formations in Closed Beta 2:
1. “Phalanx Formation” will divert all block rate of all formation members to 3 columns at the front.
2. “Testudo Formation” raises the defense and block rate of all members. However, movement speed is reduced and all members cannot attack. Testudo formation is useful when you want to move through chaotic battlefield.
3. “Winged Formation” lowers enemy defenses as they enter the crossfire. Movement is possible while maintaining this formation. Since range of crossfire is dependent on number of members, more members in the formation will create a larger crossfire.
4. “Schiltron Formation” is useful when blocking enemy attacks.
5. “Wedge Formation” concentrates all attack power to one member at the front.
