Aion Class Interview #2 - The Templar
Without a doubt, boasting a set of extreme-looking armor is one of the
coolest elements of any fantasy MMO. Many of those "Whoa" moments come
when a player first observes a special type of in-game armor. Out of
all the classes in Aion,
the melee-based Templar sports the best armor in the game, and
according to the NCsoft devs makes them look like "metal gods."
In our second exclusive Aion class interview, it seemed appropriate to talk about the Gladiator's more heavily armored brethren, so the Ten Ton Hammer staff quizzed the Aion team about the Templars. The answers we received were excellent. Armor, abilities, lore and more subjects were all explored, so make sure you check it out!
Ten Ton Hammer: Templars seem like a very melee-oriented sort of class. How does this affect the flight mechanic in Aion? Will Templars be powerless once they leave the ground?
NCsoft: All classes are more vulnerable in the sky, but thanks to the Templar’s higher defensive skills and rating they will be more protected that most. Strategy of when to fly and when not to fly will affect the Templar’s just as much as any class.
