Heroes of Telara - Preview @ Ten Ton Hammer

Ten Ton Hammer were in a demo session covering the recently announced Heroes of Telara while visiting E3 and had, amongst others, this to say:

Heroes of Telara is a high fantasy world with all the trimmings. Players can start as a human, elf, or dwarf character and choose one of the iconic fantasy classes as a base: Rogue, Cleric, Warrior, and Caster. If it sounds very cookie cutter, just wait, the player choices really come to life in the sub classes of the game. There are a boatload of sub classes players can choose from. If you are a Warrior main class and want to spec in the Paladin sub class you’ll get righteous abilities that will help you more in combat with a little bit of healing thrown in. Players who start out as a Cleric main class and spec into the Paladin will have a boost to healing as well as the combat. There are plenty of options for players to choose from.

We got a look at the Warrior main class who then chose to run as a Berserker sub class through a quest. The Berserker spec gives the character a boost to melee and damage but offers little benefits in terms of defense. As the Berserker got further on the quest, she ran into a Lich with some nasty undead minions blocking the road. After a tough fight the Lich went down and gave our Warrior some very unique loot for an MMO…a new sub class! The Warrior could now spec into a Necromancer-style sub class and summon undead to fight for her. So if she came upon a fight where her Berserker skill may not work best, she could switch to Necromancer and send in the undead to battle her foes for her, eventually jumping in to finish them off with her melee abilities. So as Heroes of Telara starts out with some basic main classes, there are plenty of options for players to spec in lots of sub classes depending on the situation.
