    Greetings Ascendants,

    This month we bring you some new character screenshots from a few of the playable classes found within A:IR and a short explanation of the design. We hope you enjoy the thought and care that went into each of these classes. Also, please keep in mind that, we are showing only one gender image per class here, but all the classes will have both male and female options to choose from. A:IR will not have gender locked classes.


    Warlord

    To describe the Warlord would be to dredge up thoughts of an overwhelming presence who overtakes enemies by pure strength. The Warlord also has the trust of their companions to protect them from incoming danger. The Design of the Warlord’s weapon and armor were designed with these two playstyles in mind.

    Assassin


    You may imagine an Assassin as only a covert and cruel character, but in A:IR the Assassin also likes to fight furiously with a flurry of daggers as quick as lightning. This class was designed to express both playstyles. These two expressions can be seen as a dance because of their slow, sneaky moves, and sudden dramatic attacks.

    Elementalist


    The Elementalist in A:IR is an explosive class who dominates the battlefield. Harnessing the power of the elements may seem like an exercise in futility, but it requires a cool composition and knowledge of tactics. Therefore, we wanted to deliver a striking, but restrained attitude. While using colorful and refined materials such as a tuxedo, magic hat, and wand, the Elementalist is designed to apply to the unique style of A:IR.

    Mystic

    The Mystic is a magical class who is in communion with nature. Instead of simply supporting their allies, they actively rush to their aid. Healing is obviously the main purpose of the Mystic’s magic, but we didn’t want to limit their ability to just Healing. To communicate the Mystics playstyle and lore, this design was inspired by the variety of natural abilities the Mystic has at its disposal.

    Gunslinger


    The Gunslinger is one of the classes that best conveys the style of A:IR. With the dual pistols and rifle they dance around the battlefield. The material used and style of the Gunslinger should invoke the world of A:IR particularly with the modern coat, wide-brimmed hat, and mysterious mask.

    Edit 3/4/19: Changed some of the text to gender neutral since classes have been announced to not be gender locked.

    Oh my word. I was having trouble deciding which class I was going to pick. I am no longer having this dilemma. If being an elementalist means I get a top hat, tails, and fire magic there's absolutely no contest.
