PaladinPaladin is a support class character, that acts as a better choice than the
Bard as they have the same level of healing and shields as a Bard but they
can play actively in combat also.
ArtilleristArtillerist is capable of doing heavy attacks and can shield teammates, but
his movement ability is quite low and even though he can play a multi-skill
character, he is average in all of them.

and healing benefits to their allies rather engaging in fights and skirmishes head-on.
Additionally, she can also summon various holy beasts to assist her in dangerous encounters with the enemies by painting them on a canvas.

forms of damage and debuffs to the enemies.
It may come across as a weak variety of character class, but the more powerful
it gets, the more damage it inflicts on the enmies.
It is one of the toughest classes to play as, so if you’re looking for challenging
class to master over, then this is it.
DeathbladeDeathblade is the coolest and most popular character in the game. She
can wield three swords that can deal impressive damage.
SummonerSummoner is one of the most versatile classes in the game as they utilize mythical creatures to do damage to the enemies. Apart from damaging enemies, the summons also stagger foes to leave them vulnerable to further follow-up attacks.
SorceressSorceress is a wizard (as the name suggests) she is a combat-oriented character
but has low defenses and health which makes her difficult to sustain in a fight
