[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Wings of Destiny ( is shaking things up again with the introduction of new Advanced Classes and the Transcend feature. At Level 70, players can undertake a quest to Transcend to an advanced class, adding huge bonuses to their attributes, new skills, and access to specialized equipment.

Experiment and Specialize

Once a player accesses the Transcend feature, they will have 2 new Advanced Classes to choose from. Each Advanced Class further focuses on one particular aspect of the player’s original Class.

For example, the Cleric class, which stems from the basic Priest class, focuses more on its ability to support others. As such, the bonus attributes of the Cleric increase the character’s ability to survive while providing more spells for healing, protection, and other defensive abilities.

The Inquisitor class, on the other hand, changes the Priest into a more attack-oriented spellcaster, calling upon the powers of darkness to rain terror and punishment down on the enemy.

The Advanced Classes choice can be reversed for a small Cash fee, which allows players to experiment and discover their preferred style of play. This flexibility also adds a new dimension of unpredictability of PvP. Players can arrange their Advanced Classes and abilities as a way of specifically targeting or countering an opponent’s build and strategy.

The Transcend feature promises to take Wings of Destiny to a whole new level of customization and play. With more skills and equipment to come, players can look forward to building an even more unique hero to conquer their peers and save the world of Galensya.
