It is morphing time in Action MMO Skyforge as the Overgrowth update arrives on all platforms, and with it, the new Grovewalker class. The Grovewalkers are a hybrid class, taking on the role of powerful mages as well as frontline tanks. In caster form the class wields a legendary staff to safeguard its allies, draining the life force from its opponents while dealing surprising amounts of damage. But when the situation asks for it, the Grovewalker can morph into its “Living Armor” and smash even the toughest enemies into submission. A sight to behold and a hulking feature that will transform combat in Skyforge forever.

Besides a brand-new class, ‘Overgrowth’ will also let players rediscover Skyforge’s game world, with a new difficulty level for its adventures and a completely new challenge system!

Challenge System

Immortals will find a new ‘Challenges’ tab in the game. Here players will find all completed tasks and points earned by their characters, including platform specific ones. The unfinished challenges will give them hints on what to do next and maybe even show players parts of Skyforge they may have missed before. The first tasks will be quite simple, but with the release of subsequent updates, more unique challenges will appear in the list. Players can show off their progression with special titles and compare challenge points with friends!

New difficulty levels

Sometimes, a hard adventure is not hard enough. The most logical next step is to create a full blown ‘nightmare difficulty’ for Immortals to sink their teeth in! Players can challenge themselves and their whole Pantheon, Skyforge’s Guilds, in this new difficulty setting.
