Gung Ho Online Entertainment released new information, screenshots on two of the playable classes in Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, the Sword Warrior and the Cleric.
The Sword Warrior is good at both attack and defense, wielding a massive greatsword and heavy armor. Sword Warriors have four class specific actions: Guard blocks an attack with the blade of the greatsworld, reducing incoming damage. Guard Cancel allows the use of guard to stop a combo. Just Input requires pressing the attack button with perfect timing at the end of a combo in order to extend it. Sword Warriors can also learn five ACE Skills: Magnum Break is a powerful attack. It becomes more powerful the longer you charge it. Fury Stance and Guard Stance are mutually exclusive and raise respectively attack and defense. Provoke attracts the attention of an enemy on the Sword Warrior. Hard Provoke does the same, but with multiple monsters.
The Cleric specializes in restorative magic but is a capable fighter. The Cleric is armed with a mace and a shield. Clerics have three class specific actions: Guard and Guard Cancel are the same as the sword warrior’s but executed with the shield. Guard Counter requires pressing the guard button with perfect timing upon receiving an attack, and allows to both reduce damage further and perform a counterattack at the same time. The Cleric has its own ACE skills: Sanctuary creates a ground area effect in which allies recover HP gradually. Heal does exactly what it says on the tin, restoring a certain amount of HP to an ally. Blessing raises defense and attack power of the whole party temporarily. Gloria is similar, but raises the probability of inflicting critical hits. Chorus is a powerful AOE cure, while Kyrie Eleison generates a magical barrier around allies reducing incoming damage.
Ragnarok Odyssey Ace for PS Vita releases on August 29th in Japan.
