Your character has 3 adventuring roles or classes to choose from. These roles determine the skills and sometimes equipment available to you as you explore and combat your way through the world. Upon reaching level 6, you may choose from one of 3 specializations or subclass which will further affect the skills available to you and affect the style of play.
You can remove your specialization and role at any time by right clicking in your skills windows and choose FORGET. Be warned! Forgetting your specialization will start your next selection at level 6 and forgetting your role will reset all your experience!!! After resetting, you may pick a new role/specialization from trainers.
Defenders are Skilled warriors, that fight in heavy armor. They are trained to face their enemies head-on and draw attacks towards themselves.
Strikers are deadly fighters trained to inflict as much damage as they can in a variety of ways.
