Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings Description
Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings was a fantasy MMORPG set in the same world as the first Asheron's Call. The call in the title is the almost instinctive attraction people from different worlds get to travel to the world of Auberean through one of the portals created by Asheron, the mage of legend.
Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings players choose one of the available races: Human (also called Isparians), Lugians, and the Tumeroks. Asheron's Call 2: Legions added 2 more races, the Empyrean and the Drudge.
Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings had multiple classes, limited only by their character's race. These classes include the Alchemist, Bounty Hunter, Defender, Claw Bearer, Hive Keeper, Hieromancer, Mentalist, Juggernaut, Berserker, Raider, Sage, Sorcerer, Enchanter, Feral Intendant, Templar, and Zealot. While each race had limited choices, each of the major MMO staples were represented (i.e. Tank, Healer, DPS, Nuker). At 15th level, characters could specialize further and at 50th level, they could undertake the quest to increase the level cap to 150 by becoming a Hero of Dereth.
Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings has a deep crafting skill, separate from the character leveling. While all characters could learn all the available crafting skill, it would generally be better to focus on one type, as it takes substantial investment of time and resources to improve craft skills.
Instead of the faction system from the first Asheron's Call, Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings uses a Kingdom vs. Kingdom conflict. Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings has 3 kingdoms: Order, Dominion, or Shadow. Players can participate in large scale battles or fulfill missions for their favored Kingdom. This rewarded them with Kingdom Points that could be used to train Kingdom-exclusive skills.
