Aion South Korea’s new Graffiti Artist class will paint the town red (and every other color too)

    
10

The South Korean version of Aion is getting a new splash of color courtesy of its recently revealed Graffiti Artist class. As MMO Culture notes, Graffiti Artist isn’t the class’s official name, but we can’t precisely translate the Hangul character, and since the class’s official introductory trailer shows her tagging a monument with a can of spraypaint, it seems fitting enough.

The Graffiti Artist wields a pair of mystical, chakram-esque rings that she can use to blast her enemies with paint, and based on MMO Culture’s information that the class “works best in parties and will boost team members’ strength by ‘200%,'” we can likely surmise that her powerful pigments will bring some potent buffs, as well. Further details on the new class are scarce at the moment, as it’s only just been announced, and most of the current information is available only in Korean, but hopefully we’ll learn more about it in the near future. In the meantime, however, you can check out the Graffiti Artist’s official announcement trailer (as well as a short making-of documentary, in Korean of course) just below.

Why is she half naked? Why doesn’t she have a drop of ink on her? Where were all the painting stuff before the class was revealed, or did they created all the ink in Atreia? How does ink buff people? How do you cause damage by painting people? Why is there gas-masked men in Atreia? Against what exactly are they protesting?

So many questions.

Maybe she’s from Rio. It’s usually hot down there from what I gather. >.>

I live in the northeast part of Brazil, in Recife. It’s as hot as Rio.

Damn, just uninstalled after giving the latest patch a go. Doubt this class will be enough to make me come back, but it’s conceptually rad and I really dig how the Aion team has embraced adding in some very “different” classes between this and the aethertech. The more unique/interesting class ideas the better.

Yeah…it almost seems to be a take on a defender class. That is, heavy on the mitigation to take down enemies…

…and yeah, that would make me sorely tempted to download this game again. Especially if it came with an artistic component.

Alright, this beats even wildstar’s medic as far as peculiar classes go…whatever they smoked to come up with this one, I advise to tone it down for their own good :P

Seconded.
Although it would continue Aion’s long tradition of questionable, “what the hell were they smoking and how illegal is it” design choices.
