To survive on Terminus one must navigate an endless sea of risks and opportunities. Against this dark unknown the well-worn paths of physical, mental, magical and spiritual mastery endure like beacons of light. Known collectively as Classes, these paths of mastery guide the hopeful and the terrible from birth to the grave and beyond.
A Class is a common method of arbitrating the capabilities of different player characters in . A character class aggregates several abilities and aptitudes, and may also detail aspects of background and social standing, or impose behavior restrictions. Classes may be considered to represent archetypes, or specific careers.
Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen

Damage) (Examples: Rogue, Ranger, Wizard)

Classes for Launch
There are 12 classes proposed for launch:
Cleric, Dire Lord, Druid, Enchanter, Monk, Paladin. Ranger, Rogue, Shaman, Summoner, Warrior, Wizard
Cleric In the Frail Age, communion with Celestials is unheard of. The Cleric must bind to ancient Tomes containing the last vestiges of light from when the Celestials had drawn near.
Dire Lord Legends speak of Dire Lords capable of mastering the crippling power of fear, with some able to manipulate the ‘essence’ of living things--even their very blood.
Druid Amidst the fragmented realms, the wild-eyed Druid embraces the diverse, natural world, peering into its mysteries. Druids are revered as visionaries who can see into the heart of Terminus.
Enchanter Through a single word, the Enchanter can turn the intent of an enemy and break even the strongest of wills into submission.
Monk Through longstanding discipline and unwavering obedience to ancient teachings, the Monk wields their mind and body as a devastating, holistic weapon against their enemies.
Paladin Once a Cleric, the Paladin has a call transcending the customs of the Cleric Order. Led by her convictions, she sets off to carry out her own righteous judgment.
Ranger In untamed regions, the Ranger is a versatile and ferocious warrior, united with the land and animals he communes with.
Rogue The treacherous Rogue is far more than a trickster. With her daggers, she is a ruinous force that smiles at the dark places and unravels her enemies with terrifying efficiency.
Shaman It is rumored that Shamans live in every age at once. Thus, Shamans know the ancestry of any friend or foe, wielding this knowledge to great benefit or baneful cost.
Summoner The Summoner has developed a powerful arcane command to conjure sustenance, tools, barricades, weaponry, even fantastic creatures of incredible strength – all of this at her whim.
Warrior The Warrior seemingly defies limits of physical strength, ability and resilience. However, not content with fortitude alone, he also refines his mind, becoming a master strategist in battle.
Wizard While many Wizards are driven mad through study of the arcane, those who emerge stable under the weight of this power wield a force barely imaginable in awe and effect.
Classes in progress
There are 2 classes that are not yet available.
They are proposed to be available either at around launch or at some point after: Bard, Necromancer
