Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Class Overview

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning features an interesting and unique class (also called career) system in which players class selections are limited based upon allignment, race, and often gender. This interesting choice greatly adds to and emphasizes the extensive lore behind Warhammer Online, and immerses a class wholly into the storyline. Every career option in Warhammer Online is unique and important in all facets of the game, and has a very rich history that enhances gameplay.

Here is a guide to all of the Destruction careers of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
