Dawnspire introduces an entirely new take on character creation, and eliminates the character levelling that normally presents a barrier between new and old players. A character never becomes more powerful than the one you start with. Instead the game offers a myriad of different ways to build your character and provides players with interesting strategic choices and tools from the beginning. This leaves the player free to concentrate on the fast-paced action, skills and strategies without having to endure tedious treadmills and grinding quests.
The game features five original player classes. You can choose to play as the Reaver, Seeker, Shadowblade, Templar or the Witch, all with their own unique gameplay that requires different tactics and cunning. Play as the agile deep elf Reaver who can mold her very skeleton into deadly weapons, the fearsome aramasi Shadowblade who can move instantly between shadows, striking swiftly with a poisoned blade, the Templar who melds her very soul to her near-sentient enchanted sword, the orcish Witch who can summon the forces of nature and channel the very energies of life and death, and the dwarven Seeker who specializes in cunning traps and fierce berserker skills.
In Dawnspire battle takes place on servers running maps for up to 16 players. Players get killed and respawn just like in first person shooters, while trying to complete the objectives set up before the other team claims the win. The game offers a thrilling experience easily available to both hardcore players and those wanting to play online for the first time. Each game takes only about 10 to 20 minutes, and teamplay, cunning and player skill alone will determine the outcome.
