An epic planar high fantasy MMO from renowned EverQuest creator Brad McQuaid.

Class and Race Combinations


You've asked for it, and here it is. Below is a chart of the playable races of Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen and the classes they'll be able to play. This chart is now also available on the main Kickstarter Page.

Player feedback will play a big role in which races can play which classes as we go further into development.

      I'm all for one character being able to play any jobs, or at least on the list of playable jobs.

    2. Creator Susan Platter on February 9, 2014

      Revenant sounds good! I'd like either DK or Enchanter.

    3. Creator Flumph on February 9, 2014

      Unless the shaman class is utterly different from what has traditionally been called a shaman in MMOs, then chances are good I'm going to be a shaman. Honestly, in the end, I'd probably even choose and orc or a dwarf of my own accord. However, just once, it'd be nice to be able to pick one of the "pretty" races right off the bat. I can see how the class might not fit well with the revenant lore, but I don't think humans or elves are that much of a stretch.

      Speaking of revenants, I'd also like to echo the concern about their lack of healing class. Unless the starting zones are more solo friendly or they share a zone with another race, they might have a rough time at first.

      but it doesn't matter to me.. as I won't be playing this game, until it has a ranger class. I am a backer and will support the game, but until it has a ranger class, i won't play it

    5. Creator Paul Grimm on February 9, 2014

      @MurZerker I know :) I was referring tot he other guy saying rev's had no healers.. its going to be exactly like eq where trolls, orge, and dark elves were one team/ faction ( for a pve expirence) and then you had the good races of elves, halflings,etc etc, and then you had the neutral races that could be either or but had to work on factions to be accepted in other cities ( example a human shadow knight had to work hard to be accepted into Neriak, or a half elf had to work hard to get Kelethin to like them) I bet they got it set up kinda in this sense where as a Rev and orge are on faction ( evil) and then dwarfs and elves are good faction and the human are neutral and have to work to gain favor in either camp

    6. Creator Nost on February 9, 2014

      Having an ogre as a cleric is very odd, they fit the other two class's just fine, having a rogue ogre hiding in the shadows, or fumbling around picking pockets is absurd. Would be nice if they had more then two class's to choose from, but they just don't fit.
      If a race (revenant) dosen't have access to the cleric class, they should have a shaman, or some other kind of healer to fill in for starting cities, since travel will be limited, especialy in the beginning.

    7. Creator Dimitri on February 9, 2014

      Ogres are quite limited in class options, also limiting a popular class to an unpopular race is forcing players into a "lesser of two evils" situation which might harm the game in the long run.

      I would really like some more info on why the dev team decided to go for that option.

      Besides ogres deserve some more love :)

    8. Creator Matt Mock on February 9, 2014

      Blood Mage plz. Best class in VG outta any other MMO ever. And I was religious about my EQ enchanter...never thought Blood Mage would surpass it.

    9. Creator Matt Mock on February 9, 2014

      Dark Elf Enchanter. Please make DE playable.

      Not overly excited about races. No trolls, Barbarians, or any other staples.

    10. Creator Goemoe on February 9, 2014

      Well, this kind of pissed me of. A company as small as VR is really thinking of developing a whole class for only one race? Onyl one race which not even is very popular as well. Anyone might paly a human or even an elf/dwarf, but ogres? With a small team you have to manage resources well. To afford something like this, while skipping races and classes(stretch goals won't be reached) which would gather much bigger crowds let me wonder if VR is really up to it...

      And just for me: now we have 5 races of which I wouldn't ever play 2, don't like dwarves much either and because of this I won't ever be able to look at one of the classes. I am beginning to doubt this game is worth backing for me personally.


    11. Creator Joel Reid on February 9, 2014

      Shaman is a religious vocation like a priest. It is obvious that in this chart some species do not partake in shamanistic religions of other species as they are most likely species dependant.

    12. Creator Andre Howard (deleted) on February 9, 2014

      Revenant Enchanter.

    13. Creator Kilsin on February 8, 2014

      Dwarf should not be able to play a Rogue if they are unable to play a Wizard as Rogues/Wizards are counterparts of sorts, Rogue is the melee version of intelligent/stealth/tricks/Dps and Wizard the spellcaster/cloth wearing intellectual version. In most games anyway, it is weird to see a Dwarf Rogue that isn't allowed to be a Wizard!

      Shaman in my opinion should also be allowed to be played by Humans, I won't compare real life to fantasy but many other games allow this for lore reasons and humans are an advanced race with many differing opinions and paths they like to follow, like spiritual and religious belief is just a couple that fit with Shaman.

    14. Creator MurZerker on February 8, 2014

      @ITPalg couldn't be a shaman in EQ either. Althought it makes more sense to have a Human Shaman, than it does a Dwarf Shaman. Can't wait to see how Vhalen makes all of this work with the lore, since Shamanism is associated with more wild/barbaric cultures, which the Dwarves don't seem to be.

    15. Creator ITPalg on February 8, 2014

      So the jack-of-all-trades human can't be a shaman?

    16. Creator MurZerker on February 8, 2014

      @Paul Factions most likely won't be done that way in this game. Think more like EQ where every race had a base faction, plus every class within the race had a faction, and merchants had factions etc etc etc. It's not designed with any thought towards PvP, and the broad factions needed for PvP. Brad mentioned in a reply to a tweet I sent him, that EQ style factions were what he was going for. 1000's of them.

    17. Creator Andreas Øvrehus on February 8, 2014

      would've been cool with a more traditional warrior class aswell...

    18. Creator J. Timms on February 8, 2014

      Man, this is pretty ugly without the stretch classes and races. Really need those to be a reality. Still hoping for a Blood Mage. Not sure why the best class from EQ and VG is not in this game.

    19. Creator Duke L33t0 on February 8, 2014

      i think its gonna be a melting pot of chaos just the way i like it

    20. Creator Paul Grimm on February 8, 2014

      I am betting man here, but i venture to say the Rev and Orges are going to be a faction, and then dwarfs and elf's are one faction, and then the humans can be either or???

    21. Creator Eldaran_SoL on February 8, 2014

      I'm concerned that revenant have no support class. No heals in the starting zones might be an issue?

    22. Creator Erik Shafer on February 8, 2014

      Was sold on Revenant Dark Knight before, and still am. :)

    23. Creator Ahwey on February 8, 2014

      Glad to see feedback on a single race only shaman has been seen and recognized. While Dwarf is a good start to add to that class, I certainly hope Human gets added as well.

    24. Creator Khayos on February 8, 2014

      As undead I cant imagine they look handsome or pretty lol. My elf will do just fine, and my complete control over encounters for my groups/raids will be amazing! :D

    25. Creator Renee on February 8, 2014

      i would love to see early sketches / mockups of what each race looks like :)

    26. Creator Renee on February 8, 2014

      me too, khayos. but what do revenants look like?

    27. Creator Khayos on February 8, 2014

      Elf Enchanter here!

    28. Creator Pilgrimzero on February 8, 2014

      No DE DK? Really?

    29. Creator Paul Page on February 8, 2014

      Bard! Bard! Bard!


    30. Creator Avvy on February 8, 2014

      Lookin good! Shame about the budget :( Tell your friends peeps.

    31. Creator Amaziah Hadithi/Ethosian Aspect on February 8, 2014

      *Briggaens, there we go

    32. Creator Visionary Realms, Inc. on February 8, 2014

      Yes I apologize for the oversight when I sent the info to Ben. You can yell at me if you want.


    33. Creator Amaziah Hadithi/Ethosian Aspect on February 8, 2014

      Humans should be able to be shamans, at least the Ethosians and the humans that are enemies to the Maratans, not the Platosians but the Briggadens sp?

    34. Creator Duke L33t0 on February 8, 2014

      Gotta love a dev team who respects there fans wants when they can.

    35. Creator Drew Shaw on February 8, 2014

      Shaman should have one more race. Human or Dwarf.

    36. Creator Hugo Vogels on February 8, 2014

      Dwarf Crusader it is :)

    37. Creator Joey on February 8, 2014

      Woohoo! Go drwaves!

    38. Creator John Barnhouse on February 8, 2014


      There was much rejoicing throughout the land!

    39. Creator Visionary Realms, Inc. on February 8, 2014

      Can't update this post now since Kickstarter locks it after 30 minutes, but as per Salim, the Dwarf has been added to the shaman list. The chart on the main KS page reflects this change.

      We'll be gathering more feedback over the development cycle and continuing to adapt the list where it makes sense within the lore and game. Thanks for the early suggestions!


    40. Creator Adam Iommetti on February 8, 2014

      With the Elves there was a subrace of Dark Elves. I'm surprised they can't be Dark Knights. Dark Elf Shadowknights were very common in EQ.

      Humans should be able to be Shamans. Having only a single race that can play Shaman really stands out on that list. It doesn't look for good players who enjoy the Shaman race when only a single race option is available for Shamans, and Ogres on top of that which I'm going to take a guess and say from personal experience that it's going to be the least popular race.

    41. Creator John Barnhouse on February 8, 2014


      Dwarf Bear Shaman makes perfect sense to me =)

    42. Creator Terrence Young on February 8, 2014

      I think it looks great so far. I love the fact that there is no 'jack of all trades' race. This adds a unique race / class combo that no longer exists in recent MMOs. You guys are definitely keeping true to the classic MMO vision. Loving it!

    43. Creator Raphael diSanto on February 8, 2014

      I'm not sure Dwarf Shamans make sense - Humans on the other hand.. I agree that Humans should be able to be every class. That gives people who don't want to play an "evil" race a shamanistic opportunity too.

    44. Creator Duke L33t0 on February 8, 2014

      Throws a bucket of water before the flames grow!

    45. Creator Greg Ponkow on February 8, 2014

      This is crazy. Not nearly enough races/classes like EQ. Shaman should be playable by Dwarfs as well. Game needs more combinations, not just a rework of what was listed. This has been the first bad thing i have seen so far

    46. Creator John Barnhouse on February 8, 2014

      Way to be on the ball Ben! *cough* Dwarf Shaman *cough*

    47. Creator Visionary Realms, Inc. on February 8, 2014

      We'll be taking feedback during the development of this as well, so this list is subject to change.


    48. Creator Bryan Bessette on February 8, 2014

      WHOA!?! Why do Ogres get the shaft!?! WTF?!?!

    49. Creator Matthew Baldwin on February 8, 2014

      @John I was wishing for the same thing. Really want dwarf shaman

    50. Creator Duke L33t0 on February 8, 2014

      ::cry:: no ogre crusader guess ill play a human
