A holiday surprise awaits PC Gamer UK readers in the form of a spread on EverQuest Next and Landmark that gives details on both games and an 'exclusive peek at four never-before-revealed EverQuest Next characters.' And by 'characters' they mean classes. And by 'exclusive' they mean that at least one of those classes was revealed before during the class panel at SOE Live. But that's sort of beside the point.
Here's a look at the classes revealed in the issue:
Wields either a two-handed hammer or a hammer and shield. Buffing and protecting allies is the typical Clerical duty, but these magic men and women do it with the power of fire, which gives them some killing power, too.
Wielding a tome or a dagger and focus object, the Necromancer summons destructive chaotic energies and comes with a companion: a Monstrosity that grows in power with its master.
If you're a fan of 'trampling' and 'savaging,' the Beast Lord's furry friends make excellent companions. You can do your own savagin, too, with a flail and shield combination, or a spear for medium range attacks.
With two blades or one two-handed blade, the Tempest 'dances across the battlefield' and unleashes powerful winds and blasts of lightning. Ought to appeal to fans of action RPGs.
The feature appears in the PC Gamer UK Christmas 2013 issue, and it's a worthwhile read! The issue, which is in UK stores now, is also available via App Store, Google Play, and Zinio.
Karen became hopelessly hooked on EverQuest when she wandered into Norrath for the first time, immediately fell off one of the Kelethin platforms, and had to ask a Bard to find her mangled corpse. She's gained a few skills since, and logged more hours than she cares to count playing all kinds of MMOs. The EverQuest franchise remains her favorite. Relying on her druidic wisdom, she pens a weekly column, Ask the Druid, every Thursday. Send your questions to her at shayalyn [at] tentonhammer.com.
