One thing is for sure with Lost Ark: You are not going to find yourself constrained and bored with a paltry handful of class choices. The title sports six basic archetypes that then branch off into three advanced classes each, bringing the total high-level count for professions up to an impressive 18 selections.
For example, the Mage can specialize into a Bard, the Assassin into a Pirate, and the Specialist can pick up a supermarket tabloid and become a dreaded Astrologer. Other interesting-looking class titles include Musician, Hawkeye, and Warlord. Let the other games have their paltry Fighters and Warriors — you are a Warlord and you will stride across their corpses.
While some of the names might be in flux due to localization, at least fans of the upcoming MMOARPG can start mulling over possible class picks.
