Expanding the website: leader class pages

The Dreadnought in an underground Tomb battle

During the Game Developer Conference in San Francisco and at Gamescom in Cologne this year, we showed some of the different classes that you can play in Age of Wonders III. We had our blessed Theocrat attack a city with his divine units, while our Dreadnought used heavy machinery to crush all around him and defeat his arch enemy Grelka Greenclaw.

Up until release of the game we will show much more of the remaining classes. So we figured it would be the right time for us to organize the information we have released so far and show it in a new overview on the Age of Wonders III website. As a result of that I’m happy to announce our Dreadnought class page, the first of a series of six.
On this page you’ll find class info, special units and skills, trailers and screenshots, explaining you what kind of varied gameplay you can expect.

Aside from new class pages, we’ll also keep updating existing pages with new units and skills.
Please remember though that the game is still in development and things can change for the sake of gameplay or balance.

The following two tabs change content below.

    It’s a really good idea, thanks Jimmy! Can’t wait for the others!

    Just a quick suggestion: make these class pages accessible from the main page. Currently i can only see the Dreadnought page if i first dig through this dev journal.

    Can’t wait till the info on the other classes.
    Also, spell jammer: only distorts magic for opponents? Guess it’s a ‘turns off temporarly during ally casting’ mechanism.

    Great idea!
    I really like this screen too. There are so many tacticaly usefull things (they look really nice too).
    And how does the Spell Jammer work and how can we build it?

    #11954

    This is looking amazing!!!

    So, thus far, we’ve seen the dreadnaught, theocrat and druid in battle. Just left to see how warlords, sorcerors and rogues work their stuff, especially rogues, I am intrigued by them!

    Good job Triumph, keep it up.

    @Tomipapa It’s planned, but unfortunately didn’t get it in in time.
    There will be a new sub-navigation where you can monitor updates to the class pages.

    Rogue is showed in Lennart’s presentation .
    I prefer to see sorcerer at first.

    Same here. The other classes look great but Sorcerer is intriguing me the most without a doubt.

    #11961

    That map at the top looks pretty big, that arena area being in the middle.. looking at those guys in the back and adding that to each idea side of the area is very promising.

    Also the class stuff is nice too :D

    Trebuchet will be base unit replaced by cannons? What if other classes replace the same unit type? For example if archdruid has some kind of ent that throw boulders and not the regular trebuchet then there won’t be much difference.

    I suppose instead that dreadnough will replace ranged units but warlord will replace melee units. Also it is not sure that replacement is always better than base unit!

    I tried doing that earlier too. It’s a pity there isn’t anything there… yet :P

    Always worth a try ;)

    Still, there’s more on them than a page like http://www.ageofwonders.com/classes/archdruid/

    Yeah, the rest of them do that, but then doing the same thing for Theocrat redirected me here – http://www.ageofwonders.com/forums/topic/theocrat-class-skills/ which is nice but that’s not what I wanted :)

    Oh! It’s too few types of units for one class and only 6 races and 6 classes!
    Dreadnought-orc can use the same units isn’t he? So if every class have 5 types of units there are only 5*6=30 basic units for all races.

    @VoDJARA, this is just a small selection of all the unique skills and units. We’re also not ready to announce everything just yet, mostly because of balancing and gameplay considerations.
    So no worries, your appetite will be satisfied. ;)

    Are we going to see race pages start going up sometime too?

    I’m looking forward to seeing all classes because I’m curious how the classes will differiantiate between each other while still being close to balanced. How will a Rogue stand a chance against the power of a Dreadnaught? What was the “terrorist actions” that the Rogue was suppose to be able to pull off that Lennard Sas mentioned in one of the demo videos when showing off the rogue? Will the classes play a different part with their abilities or will it only be about their unit roster?

    Looking very much forward to more info here. Also hoping to see some info on pre-order and beta testing? Maybe consider doing like Gal Civ 3 where you can pay double to get alpha and extra sweet stuff landing you guys more funds.

    Am I the only one hitting F-5 constantly, hoping more stuff will be added?

    I’d love to see some info on what kind of stuff you get by combinging race A with class A or B just to get an idea of things.

    @AwesomeLion As you can see, we’ve just added a new subnavigation for the classes. If we add new ones or update existing ones, you’ll see it there immediately.

    Oh yeah! Those look terrific! I assume that you will be revealing them from left to right? So Theocrat would be next up? Was hoping for Sorcerer, or Warlord, or maybe even Rogue, but I’m happy to learn more about all of them so looking forward to more updates for sure.

    Thanks for the heads up Jimmy. Can hardly contain my excitement for this game <3
