Trion Reveals Class System for Rift: Planes of Telara
From the official site:
Each attuned soul grants players access to a unique "Soul Tree," which contains all of the traits and abilities that a soul had mastered during its life. As your character levels up, you earn soul points that can be used to improve that tree's soul level, granting players access to even more powerful traits and abilities.
Sound like World of Warcraft's Talent Tree? The similarities are hard to deny, but the official site also reveals the ability to unlock and attune up to three additional souls, allowing for a vast variety of combinations.
