Monk class for Conquer Online previewed
Conquer Online’s Monk class will be coming as part of a major update to the game on December 16th.
Based on the Shaolin style of Kungfu, the Monk offers selflessness and enlightenment. As a melee class, the Monk uses close-hand combat with magical support, and fight barehanded, with prayer beads being their physical weapon. Strikes may cause elemental damage, based on five different elemental auras. The monk can also bless and cure an ally, and are termed as “back-line supporters.”
To see the monk in action, check out the video preview.
Conquer Online is published by TQ Digital, which also publishes Zero Online, Eudemons Online, and Crazy Tao.
New playable class to spin and kick its way into leading free2play MMORPG, Conquer Online
Hull, UK, November 19 / TQ Digital, the renowned Chinese-based online games publisher, are excited to announce the international debut of highly anticipated Kung-fu Monk class to its leading free2play MMORPG, Conquer Online.
After several months of waiting, Conquer Online’s new class, the Monk, is finally ready for its international debut! The highly anticipated Kung-fu Monk will be unveiled ahead of the Christmas season on December 16.
Originating from the legends of ancient China, the concept of the Kungfu Monk was first inspired by the legendary Shaolin Monastery, which has always been considered a sacred and powerful order in the oriental world. The high priests of the Shaolin temple researched and devised many unique and powerful martial arts styles, which include boxing, pole arts, spear arts, sword arts, and so on. These “fathers of Kung-fu” were trained in the various styles of martial arts, and deemed as protectors of holiness and the ways of Shaolin.
Now the legend continues in the world of Conquer! Striving to be kind and selfless, the Monk order has been engaging in devotional meditation for thousands of years. They always try to maintain separation from the outside world, in order to keep their focus on achieving enlightenment and higher states of being. But now, evil has declared war against the world, and the wave of darkness has reached their very doorstep. It is the time they return to the world they once knew, but left behind so long ago…
Compared with other melee classes, the Monk class in Conquer is a great combination of strong close–hand combat and magical support. They are the masters of “Chi”, and different than any other class in the fact that they fight almost barehanded! Clothed in the traditional frock and monk’s cap, prayer beads are their only physical weapon. The abilities that a monk possesses are similar to magic, in the way that they cost a set amount of energy, or “Chi”, to use. The Monk’s skills include strikes that cause elemental damage, blessings to cure an ally’s afflictions, and the ability to prevent others from raising fallen soldiers!
Five Elemental Auras
The Monk fulfills a different role in a party than the other professions, generally being based around healing and enhancing your party’s abilities in combat, as well as removing detrimental conditions and hexes. They can assist you in battle by giving you various extra attributes, while still being able to tough it out on the front lines!
A skilled Monk will be a strong back-line supporter, who would greatly enhance your teamwork and make group PKing more challenging and fun! Their magical abilities could even stand up to the powerful Ninja, while not overpowering the other classes.
More details to be released via the official Conquer Online site very soon.
