Details on the Marksman class of Forsaken World
Perfect World has spotlighted the Marksman class of Forsaken World, a class only available to Dwarves. The Marksman is a versatile class that is extremely difficult to pin down. Lethal up close as well as from afar, the Marksman class has a wide array of single target and AoE attacks.
The Marksman is first and foremost the primary source of ranged damage dealing in the game. As a Marksman gains levels, they will be provided with the means to both hold their enemies in place, as well as completely level anything nearby with a wide array of single target and AoE attacks. One of the most unique characteristics about the Marksman class is their Crack Shot mode. During regular hunting of monsters (or even other players), a Marksman can generate bullets inside of a special magazine. At any point in time, the Marksman can enter Crack Shot mode, which consumes the stored bullets for added benefits to skills and talents.
Here is a small sample of some of the skills available to a Marksman:
Burst of Rage
Consumes 6 bullets in the Crack Shot magazine. Fires six shots simultaneously for regular damage plus 643.
Increases the effective range on all AoE skills by 5% per level.
Deals base damage plus 883. When fired in Crack Shot mode, damage is increased by 20%, and burns 5% of the targets mana.
Slows all targets in the area of effect
All targets on fire within Weakening Cloud explode, taking 500 damage, interrupting spellcasting, and knocking them back.
