Next week, Sword of the New World: Granado Espada will open its doors to the press and a few lucky members of the public. Dubbed the V.I.P. beta, this event will last just ten days but is open to any interested member of the press. Until stories start coming from the V.I.P beta, Ten Ton Hammer has received our third developer diary straight from the SotNW developers. Phil Maurer, Operations Team Lead, and Jon-Enee Merriex, Senior Game Master, join us again to answer a few questions we raised about the use of stances and skills within Sword of the New World.

I guess now would be a good time to introduce class specific skills, Each of the five basic classes all have a unique skill that is available in all stances. The Fighter gets "Provoke", an agro management skill to pull monsters to him. The Scout on the other hand has the ability to heal in all stances, but will only auto heal in two of the stances.
