Paladins are sort of a thing in any setting you claim to name. The very name conjures images of a fiercely devout warrior with heavy armor, heavy weaponry, and boundless dedication to a cause. Neverwinter's next class, the Oathbound Paladin, is certainly meant to play off of that image. It's a clas...

Christmas came early for the forward-looking Final Fantasy XIV player this year.

(I'd also point out that the expansion was announ...

We really wish that the Mayans were around today to ask why they would worship a giant flying snake instead of freaking out because, well, giant flying snake. It's probably a good thing that Mr. Kukulkan, Serpent of the Nine Winds, is on the side of the playerbase in SMITE as the newest god in the ...

Wow. A new class was at the very top of my wish list for 2014, but to be honest I never thought it would happen. However, last Friday Aaron Campbell confirmed on a livestream that the team is working on a 10th class to put into the game sometime this year. Instantly, speculation exploded among the ...

The newest class in TERA is live on the Korean servers right now, and even if you don't normally play an Elin, you might be curious to see what it's all about. That's a little more problematic if you don't speak Korean, but lucky for you there's a whole preview of the upcoming class available now o...

TERA's taking terror and pre-adolescent creepiness to the skies with an upcoming class, tentatively called the Flying Scythe-user. Details about the new class are a little spotty due to the translation from Korean (so don't take that class name as gospel), but it looks as though the Elin-only cl...

Can a young Ratonga Channeler make a difference in the war against Kerafrym and his dragon minions in EverQuest II? Yes, but a few more levels and skills would make a difference! So would a nice leaping mount, but those are only available at level 30. That means Massively's MJ has her work cut out ...

Character creation was never easy for Massively's MJ (Ratonga. No, Kerra. No, Ratonga... bah!), but at least this time around, the class choice was a given! She's always been partial to healers and pets, so how could she not give the newest addition to EverQuest II a whirl? It may have taken all we...
