Heroes of Three Kingdoms previews Ring Blades class
Players of the Dynasty Warriors series may be most familiar with the Ring Blades used by SSX, but these fine weapons will soon be coming to Heroes of Three Kingdoms.
The Ring Blades class is billed as versatile, able to both do high DPS on single target and AoE, as well as having evasive techniques. So far three skills have been previewed for this class: Searing Orb, which summons a charged orb that will deal damage every other second, some of which ignores defense completely; Eye of the Storm, which is an AoE finisher that appears like a great tornado; and Taunt, which allows players to regenerate 5 Chi each time they hit a target and quickly get back into battle with powerful moves.
Heroes of Three Kingdoms is published by Perfect World Entertainment, who also publishes Jade Dynasty, Battle of the Immortals, and Perfect World International.

If there is any class in Heroes of Three Kingdoms that cannot be defined for filling a specific role, Ringblades would definitely be the one. Having been highly anticipated for quite some time now, we are proud to finally give you a sneak peek on what you can expect from this highly versatile class in the upcoming content update.
Everything from instant high burst damage attacks, to numerous evasion techniques, all the way down to powerful area-of-effect abilities, Ringblades are a class that can adapt well to any situation.
Here’s a preview on what you can expect.
Just looking downright awesome, this ability lends more than one hand in combat. The initial lightning charged summon, followed by the gorgeous animation of the yellow glowing orb will make you feel like a planet while the sun-like ball of energy circles you. This skill can either be used to gather up monsters or activated as a defensive move during an overwhelming fight between multiple enemies.
With a lifespan of 47 seconds, the orb does a high amount of work in that time frame. As soon as it’s summoned, it’s able to deal damage every other second, equal to 10% of your maxium Attack Power while also dishing out additional damage that completely ignores defense.
Eye of the Storm
If you like solid finisher abilities, then you’re going to love to end the fight with this devestator. Once activated, your pent up energy is expelled in a burst of wind and lightning which then spreads from you in the form of a tornado, affecting anyone nearby. While this skill can be considered an area-of-effect attack, it’s designed to finish off your initial target while transitioning seamlessly into your next one without missing a beat.
While most of the Ringblades skills require a fair amount of Chi, that resource will never fall short while this ability is activated. Lasting a total of 43 seconds, Taunt allows for your Chi to regenerate by 5 each time the target is hit. Before you even think of which powerful Chi based attack to use, the meter will already be maxed out, possibly allowing for multiple finishers!
However you choose to execute your plan of attack, you can be sure that this class will offer a variety of playing styles in a variety of different situations, while still remaining easy to master.
