Smilegate last year announced that 3 new classes would be playable during the second Closed Beta Test for Lost Ark but never revealed any further information. Today Smile made a big reveal detailing the three new classes: Destroyer, Arcana and Summoner.
The Destroyer is an embodiment of destruction wielding the Gravity Hammer. Using the power of gravity, the Destroyer can pull and push enemies with ease and if caught, it will be very difficult to get away. If you do not wish to die a slow and painful death, watch the Destroyers movements very carefully.
The Arcana class uses a variety of short-range and medium-range spells adapting to all situations. Arcana’s are able to draw a random ‘card‘ from their deck at crucial moments that may, if lucky change the tides of battle in their favor.
In a video two years ago, Smilegate briefly showed us how the Summoner fights with only a few minor changes since then. The Summoner class is a truly versatile class controlling creatures and elements to fight for them which can serve as auxiliary damage dealers or tanks. Spirits can be acquired by collecting ancient energy and when compiled can summon even stronger ‘ancient spirits‘.
After a lot of feedback during CBT1, Smilegate has made several improvements to the game including continuous improvements to the interface, equipment presets, major improvements to character animations and monster death animations, chat bubbles will now be printed into the chat box so users don’t miss out on conversations and many balance tweaks to the existing classes.
