Also each class has a choice of two sub classes. One is generally more defensive and the other is more offensive (cant take that Berzerker anywhere!! )

Warrior has a choice of Knight (Shield user) or Berzerker (2 handed )

Mage has a choice of Ruinmaster (blasty mage) or Necromancer (pet mage)

Healer has a choice of Disciple ( shield user direct healer) Or spirit speaker ( healing is more battle based then simple action based)

Rogue Scout Has a choice of Wildling ( Archer / Ranger type ) or Thief ( more sneaky treasure stealing abilities)

Its close but not perfect as I am at work and dont have access to the game right now.

Those are the four 'archtypes..'

Warrior = Beserker / Knight etc.


FFG ran a preview article on each type.

Those are Archetypes, not classes. Currently, each archetype has two classes, as Matt identified, and expansions will probably bring more.

So far, Necromancer is a fan favorite, and I like the Disciple's 3xp power. Finally played Knight this week, and at Basic he sucks, but with 3xpthe he was very defendable.
