Will the My.com published version have the same content as the Chinese version?Edit
Publisher My.com will provide customer support, community management and local events to support various languages (initially English, German and French). My.com will take into account feedback from the community and discuss this with the studio. At launch, the game will be feature complete but the localization and testing of the new content will take several months. Cosmetic additions, that the western gamers are accustomed to, are currently being discussed with the developers.

No, this class is scheduled for release much later in the project. It is not part of the CBT focus.

My.com is currently working on the French and German localization, planning it for the latest CBTs in anticipation of OBT.
Can you explain the features of the character creation process?Edit
There is a wide range of customization possibilities. The character creator ensures you are in full control of the character you want to make. The game also contains a large amount of costumes and items for further customizing your appearance. What classes will be available in Revelation Online? Are any of them gender locked? There are currently 6 character classes to choose from and none of them are exclusive to the choice of gender for your character:
Swordmage: They are focused on powerful magic damage, specializing in area of effect spells. They invest all of their energy in elemental magic, leaving them relatively vulnerable to focused attacks.
Occultist: They deliver a wide variety of attacks, from damage-over-time, to area-of-effect attacks, to those that deal damage while siphoning enemy health. Occultists can directly heal allies as well.
Gunslinger: With high precise damage they hunt down individual targets from afar or use advanced weaponry for mid-range deterrence. Gunslingers have few control skills and are less effective in melee combat.
Blademaster: Excellent control and escape skills allow Blademasters to cut through wave after wave of enemies. Their heavy reliance on melee attacks leaves them open to ranged attacks.
Spirit Shaper: As summoners and healers they are relatively easy to play and have great survival skills. They are highly sought after on teams.
Vanguard: These steel walls rely on melee combat. Their chief strength is surviving battles of attrition, rather than dealing burst damage.
Will I be able to switch class or choose what role I play in a group?Edit
You will not be able to switch class, but Revelation Online’s freedom allows you to fully advance in your preferred play style. Develop your class skills to better support your team or pick the path of power to do more damage. Try various builds; choose your ultimate skills carefully and rule combat your own way!
How does crafting and trading work?Edit
The game has crafting and it is supported by various professions. Resources can be obtained in dungeons or in the seamless open world. You can freely trade between players.
The game features a deep social system in which you develop connections with all players. By doing quests and specific assignments together you can level up your connection. This system can allow for finding your true mate and provides ceremonies to celebrate those relationships.
Can I start flying anywhere from the beginning? Is it the only way to travel?Edit
When you complete your first quests, the game will let you taste what it feels like to fly with your own wings. You will fully spread and own them from level 29 on. After the first few hours of the game you will be able to explore the whole world, including dangerous high level zones, using your wings without further restrictions. You can even engage in aerial battles once you have learned the special skills for it. Traveling can also be done on a wild variety of mounts (from level 15) and Nuanor’s large network of fast travel points.
How friendly is the game for players who enjoy a “solo” experience?Edit
Players will be able to enjoy the story driven adventures alone or with friends. Revelation Online’s elaborate story quests will make sure you can enjoy the world alone and none of the group quests and dungeons are mandatory for your progress. The looking for group feature, will help you find new friends quickly to experience the game’s instanced zones if you wish to see all of the game’s content.
