New Class: The Spiritborn

Get ready to unleash the power of the ancients! A press release confirms the arrival of an entirely new class – the Spiritborn. These warriors, hailing from the jungles of Nahantu, draw upon the spirits of the ancient civilization to enhance their combat abilities. We’ll get a deeper look at the Spiritborn’s skills and lore during a special reveal scheduled for July 18th.
