Summoning is a natural gift to all Arisen. Even after two thousand years the Arisen have a lot to teach their Xadaganian colleagues. However, the sense of this magic discipline has changed for the Arisen. In the past, an Arisen Savant’s main task was to prepare the dead for consecutive resurrection.  Known for their thoroughness and great abilities to use magic and learn quickly, Arisen are now solving others matters; hence appeared a new name for this chosen path: Savant.

Magician in Allods

Class background:

Kanians are not the most talented race with magic on Sarnaut. However there are some of them who possess an instinctive inclination to discover secret and unknown knowledge. The events that occurred the night the Astral portals opened have significantly determined the foundation of the Schools of Magic. Schools of Magic were seeking the most gifted Kanians who could complete the whole training course and become a Great Mage, capable of sustaining the allods.

But not everyone who decides to master secret knowledge can complete the training. In the past everyone who had completed the study could try to pass the Test, which meant death if they failed. Now only those who have a strong prospect of successfully passing the test are admitted into the school of magic. For other pupils that don’t make the grade to do the test, their studies are over and the best option available to them is to find an alternative career within the army.

Magicians, those capable of commanding the powers of nature, are the elite squads in the Kanian Kingdom. Their power is used to suppress enemies, while the rest of the army tries to protect them from any threats. The power of magicians inspires respect and awe. They often have leading roles in their faction’s victory in battle.


The Elven Archmage

Faction: League
Race: Elf
Archetype: Mage
Armour type: Cloth only
Specific ability: “Archmage’s Enlightenment”, Increases Intelligence of the caster.

Allods Archmage

Class background:

The Elves study the basics of elemental magic during their childhood while they are at school. They study it at the same time as they learn how to read and write. So there is no surprise as to why the Elves are the best mages in the League. Magic has a role in every aspect of Elven life. New magic achievements can usually guarantee superiority of one of the Houses.


The Arisen Sorcerer

Faction: Empire
Race: Arisen
Archetype: Mage
Armour type: Cloth only
Specific ability: “Astral Blast”, Inflicts direct Astral damage.

Allods Online Sorcerer

Class background:

Studying elemental magic will leads to the path of Sorcerers. In Hicut, the Zems Magic High School, magic controlling natural elements was underdeveloped compared to invoking. A large reason for it was the tragic example of the Junes who had developed wizardry into a highly developed magic discipline. However, it did not make them successful.

After the resurrection of the Arisen, Zems found their place in this world and became the most persistent scholars of the Xadaganian wizards. Due to their natural inclinations they surpassed their teachers in many aspects. Now the Sorcerers are the backbone of the Order of Magic Governance (OMG), an integral part of the regular Imperial army.

The Psioniscists


The Gibberlings Seer

Faction: League
Race: Gibberlings
Archetype: Psionicist
Armour type: Cloth from lvl 1, Leather from lvl 20
Specific ability: “Insight”, Allows the caster to predict his enemy’s actions and thus avoid any of their melee attacks.

Allods Seer

The Gibberlings don’t have a regular army. They are Gibberlings after all. They are however, interested in protecting and guarding their community, their house and their ship. There are Gibberlings who mainly focus on fishing and hunting, and they are talented tricksters. Everybody in the Gibberlings society tries to be useful and helpful. If the Gibberlings are threatened by a fight or war, the whole community will pick up weapons and defend their home.

Class background:

Mental magic is one of the types of High Magic. If all other races show abilities with the variety of forms of High magic, the Gibberlings are only known as masters of one. The explanation of this paradox lies in the Gibberlings religion and is related to their skill with fortune telling. The Gibberlings don’t want to seek answers on their own as they consider this to be a waste of time which only a clever Kanian or Elf pays attention to. If there is a gift – wonderful, if there is none – may the Thread bless you.


The Xadaganian Mentalist

Faction: Empire
Race: Xadaganian
Archetype: Psionicist
Armour type: Cloth from lvl 1, Leather from lvl 20
Specific ability: “Mentalist’s Will”, Immunizes caster to any melee damage.

They are capable of turning an enemy’s weapon against them with just the power of thought. Anyone who decides to enter into battle against a Xadaganian mentalist is sentencing themselves to death. A mentalist only has to execute the sentence.


The Arisen Occultist

Faction: Empire
Race: Arisen
Archetype: Psionicist
Armour type: Cloth from lvl 1, Leather from lvl 20
Specific ability: “Stress Coping”, Clears the mind of the caster.

Allods Online Psychic

Class background: The Arisen passions for magic studies have led them to master a new discipline, mind control. The vast majority of Zems were formerly mechanically enhanced people who developed their mind to be their main instrument two thousand years ago. Nowadays psychics can be found in the MANANAZEM Research Institute, on the battlefields and in the basements of the Committee where their art helps the Imperial Intelligence Service.
