Today we’re happy to present you some more details about one of the melee fighters from MMX, the Barbarian.
Please leave a comment, if you have any questions or feedback! And of course, you are free to speculate again. ;D
Thank you and have fun!
(Stats and details may still change until final release. Attributes are according to the Barbarian in the “Default Party”. If you create your own party individually, you are able to change these stats as you like.)
“The Barbarian fights without armor not to be handicapped when he unleashes brutal strikes on his foe. With two weapons or with a two-handed weapon, he doesn't care.”
The Barbarian deals the most melee damage with melee weapons, and favors using two-handed weapons or two weapons at once. Therefore he prefers the mace or axe. But his life is rather low, he is not particularly good at evading, and to make things even worse, he has no idea of how to use a shield. Anyway, he’s capable of redirecting damage.
Light armor is his first choice, and he once heard how to use a bow.
As already mentioned within the Character classes and races, the trainers and character development as well as the Freemage and the Ranger posting, the race of a character’s class grants some specials. In the case of the Barbarian, it’s the Orcs’ Specialties:
• Additional safety roll (20% chance) to avoid the conditions “Paralyzed”, “Sleeping”, Poisoned”, “Feebleminded”, “Weak” and “Cursed”.
• Any damage versus demons is increased by 20%.
• Any critical damage is increased by 20% of the normal damage.
When the Barbarian has the appropriate level, he/she needs to look for the right trainer in order to reach Expert, Master or Grand Master.
If he/she has enough money to pay the trainer, he/she can choose to become Expert, Master or Grand Master (according to the level) in the following:
(Dark orange marked fields and red written “GM” (Grand Master) are the start skills.)
The Advanced Class of the Barbarian
As already written in our previous Part 1: Character classes and races posting, the advanced class can be unlocked by a quest or NPC and gives you access to the Grand Master tiers. The character then benefits from special features of the Advanced Class, i.e. improves the character with additional attribute points and additional resistances.
Besides each character gets a special ability depending on its class:
The Warmonger receives the ability “Blood Rage”:
The Warmonger deals more damage that is increasing when Health decreasing.
Why would you want the Barbarian in your party?
There is no other class, who is that good in fighting with two-handed weapons and especially with maces. So if you like to play a hero who is a powerful and stout melee damage dealer, you may not want to miss the Barbarian in your party.
The female version
Have you seen the female version of the Barbarian, yet?
