Warhammer Online News – Blog

Posted: May 17, 2007 in Warhammer basics

Welcome on my blog, dedicated to Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning – MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game), set in Games Workshop Warhammer universum. Game is currently under development so I want to add from time to time, something related to WAR. EA Mythic Entertainment is known for successful “Dark Age of Camelot”. About Dark Age of Camelot I can say, that is a 3D medieval fantasy MMORPG that revolves around war between 3 realms following King Arthur’s rule.

Warhammer Online is functioning Realm vs. Realm (RvR). Player must choose between forces of good (Armies of Order – Dwarfs, High Elfs, or human soldiers of the Empire.) or evil (Armies of Destruction – Greenskins (Goblin or Orc), Dark Elfs, and humans of Dark Gods of Chaos).

I would like to show more about races – Armies of WAR, you can choose of.

“The Dwarfs are an ancient and industrious race that is long past its prime. Their once-great empire of Karak Ankor now lies in ruins and many of the Dwarfs’ mighty mountain holds have been abandoned or conquered by Orcs and Goblins, with whom the Dwarfs have warred for centuries.”

Dwarfs – Ironbreaker (tank), Slayer (Male Only – mdps), Engineer (rdps), Runepriest (healer)

“The greatest nation of men in the Old World, the Empire is composed of the human descendants of Sigmar, who united the tribes of men at the Battle of Black Fire Pass. Sigmar was deified after the battle and his promise of eternal aid to the kingdom of Dwarfs still stands today. Today, the Empire is led by Emperor Karl Franz, who rules from his seat in the city-state of Altdorf.”

The Empire – Knight of the Blazing Sun (tank), Witch Hunter (mdps), Bright Wizard (rdps), Warrior Priest (healer)

“The High Elves are an ancient people with a history that spans millennia. While the ancestors of man were little more than cave-dwelling primitives, the Elves built magnificent cities of glittering silver and white marble on their island home of Ulthuan. Elven scholars and explorers were the first to chart the stars and sail the world’s oceans.

High Elves careers – Swordmaster (tank), White Lion (mdps), Shadow Warrior (rdps), Archmage (healer)

“So named because of the color of their waxy skin, the greenskins are savagery personified. They are ill-tempered, primitive, and live only to fight. In the absence of another foe, greenskins will eventually turn on one another for want of violence. In their culture, might makes right and the weakest members of society are one false step away from being dinner.”

Greenskins – Black Orc (tank), Choppa (mdps), Goblin Squig Herder (rpds), Goblin Shaman (healer)

“In the icy wastes north of Kislev dwell nomadic tribes of barbarians known throughout the Empire as the Northmen. Sometimes a very powerful leader will arise among these savage humans, uniting the tribes into a great warhost that marches south toward Kislev and the Empire. At such times as this, the Northmen seek only bloodshed and conquest, for they are willing servants of the inscrutable Chaos gods…”

Chaos – Chosen (Male Only – tank), Marauder (Male Only – mdps), Magus (rdps), Zealot (healer).

“It was the High Elves who emerged victorious and drove the evil Dark Elves out from the ancestral home of their race. Under the leadership of Malekith the Witch King and his Sorceress mother Morathi, the Dark Elves sailed across the Great Western Ocean and founded for themselves a new kingdom in the northern reaches of the New World. This land they called Naggaroth, meaning ‘land of chill’.”

Dark Elves – Black Guard (tank), Witch Elf (Female Only – mdps), Sorceress/Sorcerer (rdps), Disciple of Khaine (healer)

These careers/classes will be available in the full version of Warhammer Online Age of Reckoning! Maybe you’ve played in Games Workshop’s popular table top Warhammer fantasy game?
