Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem 1.0.0 game guide focuses on Classless Character Development Tips. After 4 years in Early Access we’re more than happy to announce that the 1.0.0 version of Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is now live and ready. This guide will give you quick tips for Classless Character Development. We hope that this guide will help you.
Classless Character Development
The game features a Free Character or Classless development system. Unlike other ARPGs, Wolcen Lords of Mayhem doesn’t have any classes to speak of, and players are free to build characters however they see fit. During character creation you’ll be asked to pick between 3 starting weapons. A sword, a bow or, a staff. This only gives you your starting skills and weapons, but does not restrict you from using other weapon types. The player is free to use any skills they want, but skills are restricted to 3 attack types that correspond to the weapon you use. Melee, Ranged and Spell.
To give you some idea, let’s say you are currently wielding a greatsword, you are only allowed to use skills that attack in melee such as Anvil’s Woe or Wrath of Baapheth. Or if you’re using a bow, skills that attack at range are the ones you can use such as Wailing Arrows or Avenger Autoturret. There are a total of 11 weapon types found in the game and those are Axes, Battleaxe, Bows, Catalyst, Daggers, Greatswords, Pistols, Swords, Maces, Staves and Warhammer.
But what really blew my mind was the ability to use multiple skills from 2 different attack types at the same time by dual wielding 2 one-handed weapons. For example, a sword and catalyst or pistol and shield. I found this out about 5-6 hours in, because I was so stuck with the thinking that warriors only uses melee skills and mages uses spells. So now you can play as a hybrid character with a Range/Spell build or Melee/Spell build so on and so forth. My favorite at the moment is a Melee/Range hybrid build that lets me use two of my favorite skills in the game. Wrath of Baapheth which is basically Kratos’ Blade of Chaos, and Deathgazer Railgun because who doesn’t want a railgun!?!
On the armor side, you are able to equip armors from helmet to boots but there a total of 4 types of Armors. Sorcerer, whose primary stat is Force Shield, Rogue– Health primary and Force Shield secondary, Bruiser– Health primary and Resistance Shield secondary, and Heavy whose primary stat is Resistance only.
Another interesting bit about the skills is that skills also level up. The more you use a certain skill the higher the level it can reach and every now and then you’re awarded with modifier points which you can use to unlock skill modifiers that makes your already awesome skill even more awesome. For example many skill modifiers offers upgrades that reduces cost of use, so now you can spam that skill more often. Another unique modifier is for the Avenger Autoturret skill. At level 17 it can now rotate by itself and auto target enemies. Talk about convenience.
You can also forcibly level up your skills by using Primordial Affinity. To access this service find Demetra, the same NPC that sells Enneract. Primordial Affinity is gained from selling Enneract to Demetra and through using Enneract or skills that you’ve already learned. Random skills or Enneract are obtained from looting defeated enemies and can also be purchased for 2000 coins per skill.
