A wraithlike warrior who melts into the shadows to turn the tide of battle
Having glanced behind the curtain into the unknown, Reapers can manipulate the energy of life itself, reawakening allies to new powers, and healing fatal injuries. Their connection to the shadows allows them to sneak up on their enemies unawares.

The sunlight never penetrates the depths of the abyss, home to the Reaper school’s subterranean temple complex.
The Reapers originally came from Heavenly Ridge, the place of pilgrimage for the followers of the great Goddess Nüwa. Some of them settled in Heavenly Ridge’s subterranean temple and served to guard the Grand Warlock. They were tasked with protecting the sacred objects left behind by Nüwa.
Assassin (Melee DPS): The Reapers command a range of powerful curses and breed poisonous creatures to deploy in combat. In the darkness, they lie in wait for their enemies, attacking with lightning speed and mercilessly cutting them down with a swing of their scythe.
Occultist (Support): Occultists can call on the mercy of Nüwa to support their allies, granting them supernatural abilities. They are also capable of sharing some of the damage an ally receives, thereby helping them to survive.
A nomadic hero who cherishes freedom and would rather die than break their word
Berserkers feel most at home right in the thick of the fray, swinging their massive swords to protect their allies and strike fear into their enemies’ hearts. Berserkers can call upon a loyal wolf to support them. Depending on the situation, they can act as a bulwark in defending enemy attacks or unleash their strength in a veritable whirlwind of destruction.

The founder of the Berserker school was Qingya, who was originally a giant turquoise wolf. Master Lan Yaoqi guided him down the path to enlightenment, and on his travels he recruited many other warriors to follow him. These disciples continued his legacy, championing an extraordinary combat style, and the legendary tolerance for alcohol which makes them into true Berserkers.
Slayer (DPS): Chaining together swift and brutal attacks to bring their enemies to their knees, Slayers can create phantom warriors to fight by their side.
Drunken Master (Tank): Imbibing a special medicinal wine, Drunken Masters gain a fortuitous edge in combat through their intoxication. They can harness the force of the wind to block enemy attacks, or summon a wolf whose howls stir their allies to frenzied action.
A righteous monk who employs arcane techniques to subdue and eliminate evil spirits
Spellswords blend deadly swordplay and powerful magic, making them a threatening prospect at any range. They are trained for one purpose, and one purpose alone – to inflict damage on their foes, wherever they might be.

Together with Zhenren Chixia and the students from Taihua Temple, integrity and generosity found their way into the country.

Those who stayed became the first Spellswords.
Sword Artist (Ranged DPS): Sword Artists use their qi to make their swords fly, keeping enemies at bay with their spells. They also have the ability to teleport to magical swords they strategically place around the battlefield.
Bladestorm (Melee DPS): Spellswords versed in the ways of the Bladestorm set up their swords in a pentagram-like shape to stun enemies. They can also move across the battlefield with lightning speed, leaving behind echoes of their previous location to confuse their enemies.
A well-cultured and elegant monk, deeply entwined with the forces of nature
Bards have a deep and profound understanding of music, knowing how to combine the magical notes of their instruments with the forces of nature. They use this magic to hit their foes from a distance or provide support to their allies with powerful healing melodies. Alternatively Bards can manipulate the harmony of nature, and harness this imbalance to execute powerful elemental attacks.

The students of Zhenren Chixia who obliterated the demons gradually transformed Taihua Mountain into a peaceful paradise. Nevertheless, ill fortune befell one of the students, who in turn accused his fellow student Heshuo of intrigue. After a series of arguments, Heshuo eventually left Taihua Mountain, vowing to find the real culprit. Those students who left with Heshuo became the first Bards.
Dissonance (Ranged DPS): Using their virtuosic skills, Bards can harness the elements, weaving specific effects into their magical attacks. This symphony of tone and element is what makes the Bard’s Soulforce so notoriously powerful.
Harmony (Support): Bards can heal the wounded, dispel evil spirits, and protect their allies from harm. They do this by shrouding them in shields to mitigate damage, or encasing them in ice to block potentially fatal blows.
A sacred priest with an irrevocable devotion to creation and an indomitable faith
The Summoners’ celestial healing prayers often prove to be the difference between life and death. But they are not limited to healing duties, being perfectly capable of inflicting serious damage should the situation require. Casting arcane spells, they can wield command over nature and the creatures of the wilderness.

Nature’s Wrath (Ranged DPS): Summoners rally the spirits to support them in the attack, channelling their energies into a gleaming beam of light to smite their foes. They can summon Golden Feather or the fox-like Mingshi to provide support and swing battles in their favour.
