    Red face Classes; Souls; Callings; Archetypes ...

    Hello and good evening.
    I am Morfessa.

    Allow me to apologise if the following question has
    already been posed. When we choose a calling, do
    our subsequent souls have to reside within the same
    category of callings? i.e., is a player who created
    a warlock restricted to mage souls?


    I read this:

    I read this too:

    It is not clear to me. I'm sorry if I had missed it.

    Yes.

    You choose a calling at character creation, then you choose a soul. Further souls will all be from the same calling.

    Thumbs up Hey. Thanks!

    Thank you, Corwynn!
    Aw, I was hoping to play some kind of mage-y rogue or a rogue-ish mage, but I think I'll survive.

    Cheers.

    There's a rogue soul that is more magic-like than others.

    Nightblade is fairly mage-ish, yeah.

    I still wish there was some kind of melee mage in the mage tree though.

    Calling - a set of souls, filling an 'archetype' (Mage, Rogue, Cleric, Warrior)

    Souls - 'classes', currently 8 within each Calling. Cannot explore outside of your chosen Calling. 32 total. (Ex. Warlock is within the Mage calling. Stormcaller is within the Mage calling. You could choose both, and make a mixture of a warlock that uses the AOE effects of storms and lighting)

    Hopefully as they enhance and fluff out the callings, one of the souls for each class will do a limited subset of another's calling, i.e. bandage rouge ROFL

    Riftstalker - tanking rogue
    Chloromancer - healing mage

    they're just with 'twists', so they don't fill in a purely direct healing role, or a full platewear tanking role. I like this

    Still need a healing Warrior (Paladin is more of a tank), healing Rogue, tanking Mage (battle mage?)
