Allods Icon Warden Archetype in Allods Online

We are looking at the different character classes in the up-and-coming MMORPG Allods Online developed by Astrum Nival and published by gPotato.eu. They describe the game as an MMORPG “where fantasy meets space opera” and we’re pretty excited about getting a chance to play this. gPotato.eu have offered us a dozen beta keys to distribute so you can join us in the closed beta. If you would like a chance to see this game in action, be sure to stay tuned for our competition at the end of November.

Today, the focus is on the Warden archetype. There are three different warden classes: the Kanian Druid, the Gibberling Animist and the Orc Shaman.


The Kanian Druid

Druid male in Allods Online

Faction: League
Race
: Kanian
Archetype:
Warden
Armour type
: cloth from lvl 1, leather from lvl 10
Specific ability: “Scare’em”, Order pet to scare an enemy.

Class background
: The order of druids is an informal and ancient organization. It originates from ancient paganism, weird and insufficient studies of magic and the natural powers which are difficult to control. The basic rules of druid magic are taught in Kanian schools of magic, but only at an elementary level.

To become a real druid, a pupil has to find a personal teacher on his own and spend many years as a hermit. Unlike others classes, druids do not have military squads or signs of distinction. They usually are never assigned to the army as they appear when and where they want. However, nobody will refuse their help as druids are versatile fighters, capable of defending themselves and help their allies. They appear unexpectedly, like a ghost in the battlefield, but their appearance at a critical moment can sway the balance in their country’s favour. Once they have done what they come to do they vanish and move on. This has contributed to a large number of legends featuring them.

“Druids are our last hope” is a phrase that League soldiers bitterly joke when they can see that the outcome of battle is on a razors edge.

The Gibberling Animist

Male Animist in Allods Online

Faction: League
Race:
Gibberlings
Archetype:
Warden
Armour type
: cloth from lvl 1, leather from lvl 10
Specific ability: “Hold’em”, Orders pet to rush an enemy. Enemy cannot attack anyone but the pet.

Class background
: An Animist is a Warden among the Gibberlings. They used to be the most respected and honourable profession. The Gibberlings always wanted to live in harmony with nature and Animists were the keepers of the Great Tree. When wandering, Animists ensure the Gibberlings survival. They support them not only with their art but also with tales and stories about the past and dreams for the future. It is no surprise that animists often become Elders and spiritual counsellors of young sprouts.

The Orc Shaman

Male Shaman in Allods Online

Faction: Empire
Race
: Orc
Archetype:
Warden
Armour type
: cloth from lvl 1, leather from lvl 10
Specific ability: “Bonds of Brotherhood”, Any damage received is shared by the pet and the caster.

Class background
: Shamans and Reavers are the second group within the Orcs that prefer magic to weapons. This situation evolved over the last 300 years, since the Orcs fell under the rule of a Chief-Shaman. Shamans purposely look for the gifted ones and teach them their art.

The path of a newly initiated shaman is connected either to his native tribe (where he replaces his teacher and becomes the new chief), or directly to the Imperial army. Orc shamans form separate small groups to provide support, inspire warriors about heroic deeds and save and treat wounded troops.
