Multi Class MMORPG
More About Multi-Class MMORPG
Even though that the class system is much more convenient and accessible, video games still often provide players with the Multi-Class system as the way of the character development. This model of the skill levelling usually has various unique features, different for each project. For example, the function of a multi-class can be released by choice of the weapon, the set of skills, or the most used abilities. Usually, players can change their roles with no penalties, even during the fight. It’s convenient because the strict class system offers only one class for one character.
The simplest version of this system can be found in games that provide players with skills that can be opened for XP points. It’s elegant and useful because players can do whatever they want and earn valuable XP for the chosen skills. In some MMORPG with Multi-Class, the role of the character can be defined by equipped weapon or armour. It means that all heroes have no outstanding skills until they wear a specific piece of equipment. This system allows players to change tactics and gameplay only by switching between the outfits.
The most hardcore system of Multi-Class requires players to train hard their chosen abilities. For example, some games have a wide variety of entirely different skills, which level can be increased only by the regular reiteration of it. On the one hand, such MMORPGs allow players to create a “universal soldier” with the ultimate skills in everything. On the other hand, it will take a very long time to create such heroes, and their skills can hardly be used to their full potential.
