    Not all souls are available when you create your character. Some souls can only be obtained when you reach level 15/30.

    The Blade Dancer is the first class we have revealed that is not a starter soul. That's why it is in purple.

    There will be more purple outlines to come.
    Thank you for taking the time and clarifying with the Blade Dancer.

    LF more classes announcements!

    +1 Point for Abigale TY so much for asking around for us *bounce* What I am even more excited about it that this means a purifier is a starter soul

    Wouldn't it be great if heroic souls were special named souls from heroes of the past that had possibly been dead too long to be reborn? They will be your basic bladedancer, elementalist or champion souls (for example) with bonuses. A modified form of AA if you like.

    Can't wait to see all the gaps filled in.
    I think all souls are historic figures:

So yes, the idea is that there is this one soul who all individuals with each soul are taking on the powers from. It is the same MMO trope as everyone possessing X fabled item (if raiding King Arthur dropped "Excalibur").

    Technically I have to "find" the Trainer, though, right?

    Heh, I see what you are saying. I'd just like a little bit more of a definition if Abi can toss one out to us.

    Doh! I was really looking forward to starting off as a Bladedancer! I guess I'll have to work for that honour which is just as equally appealing, I suppose.

    Thanks for the info!

    The plot thickens! Well, sort.

    Go here now: http://www.riftgame.com/en/classes/index.php

    The purple outline is now gold. Either it is simply a cosmetic change, or the Blade Dancer has been recategorized and purple will be used elsewhere again.

    Yes, I have too much time on my hands. I blame the weekend.

    A question then:

    We've seen the phrase "32 starting souls" a few times; if the Bladedancer isn't a class you can start as, are they counted as one of the 32?

    Good call. Going to have to wait and see on this one. That tidbit of info was from a GamingWeez interview on June 17. Wonder if things have changed, or if it was just misinterpreted, or if there are going to be a lot more souls listed on that page then it appears.
