Astellia Online fans are in for a treat today as the still-got-that-new-car-smell MMORPG just pushed out its formal class evolution system with today’s early-morning update.
“The Class Evolution system […] allows level 50 players to further evolve into one of 3 specializations, extending the amount of experience a character can earn by converting it towards star ranks in their chosen evolution. Upon reaching the first star rank, a character will be granted the first of two new exclusive abilities. At third rank, the second exclusive ability will be unlocked. In between these ranks, additional growth will be seen in specific character stats dependent on the evolution chosen.”
At the fifth and top star rank, players pick up their permanent awakening for a core ability, though characters must “maintain the selected evolution and have sufficient star rank to have unlocked them.” That said, players do keep the 5-star awakened skills after swapping to new evolution paths.
