Updates to LightCaster Class + LightMage Class
The Good news: the LightCaster Class is CRAZY strong and REALLY easy to get.
The Not-So-Good news: the LightCaster Class is CRAZY strong and REALLY easy to get.
If you do not have the LightCaster Class yet, starting this Friday, you'll need to obtain LightMage Class. LightMage is LightCaster’s younger sibling. It’s a less powerful but balanced version you'll unlock if you own the Evolved LightCaster or Enchanted LightCaster armors.
In the name of improving class diversity and healthier game balance moving forward, we're making some changes to the LightCaster Class requirements.
The Better news: If you already have the LightCaster Class, NOTHING changes for you. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Go on blasting bad guys like you always have.
The Best news: LightCaster Class is NOT CHANGING or being nerfed. (BUT Heroes who do not already have the class will need to hit level 80 before they can start to unlock it.)
If you don't have LightCaster Class yet, head to this Design Notes post to read more. You've unlocked a new quest!
