And the Dark Elf's Black Guard
Are both being added/patched back in to the game in December,
bringing the current number of available classes to choose from up to 22.
We should also see classes getting more balance in the form of buffs,
yes buffs not nerfs in the next major patch.
Over the last month the team has been looking at all the careers and building up a list of issues/concerns to address. Almost every career is going to see some changes and love coming their way and there are very, very few changes that will be seen as reductions to a careers abilities. The Combat and Careers team has spent the last month looking at the changes that they want to make with an eye towards making improvements and buffs, not removing or weakening abilities. I wont go into details here but the vast majority of careers all have nothing but love coming their way. Of course, we will continue to monitor and track all the class data so expect, like every other MMORPG, changes to the careers to be an ongoing process.
