WorthPlaying is offering up a detailed preview of Mythic Entertainment's upcoming MMORPG, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
There will be 33 zones, with the good and evil sides intertwined forming a progression towards each faction's capital city. There exist two realms: Order (armies of the Empire) and Destruction (armies of Chaos). Humans, Dwarves, and High Elves belong to Order, while Chaos is composed of Dark Elves, Humans, and Greenskins (Orcs and Goblins). The races have been organized into "racial pairings," in the hopes of making it easier to locate fights: Empire versus Chaos, Dwarves versus Greenskins, and High Elves versus Dark Elves. However, players are not limited to these racial pairings for RvR combat; members from any realm can travel to the ancestral lands of any ally to fight any foe. So far, Mythic has only announced the classes for two of the races: Dwarf Ironbreaker (tank), Hammerer (damage), Engineer (ranged damage), Rune Priest (caster/healer), Greenskin Black Orc (tank), Shaman (caster/healer), Squig Herder (damage), and Berserker (ranged).
