Class Overview


100% Pure Action

Valkyries aren't concerned with subtlety on the battlefield. Their philosophy is "kill them all, and then find someone else to kill."


Weapons are meant to be used, not admired, and how the valkyrie uses her runeglaive reflects that. If she's not branding you with a runemark, she's exploding one in your face, knocking you up in the air, or using it to draw you in for the kill.


The seven runes carved into a valkyrie's weapon aren't just for decoration, they're a recipe for destruction. Every time she scores a crit, she brands one of them onto her opponent. After that it's no longer a question of if she'll kill her foe, but when!

All Castanic, All The Time

A valkyrie's fighting style is heavily influenced by castanic culture. They prefer light armor, and favor spinning moves and fast attacks. But their legacy is an ancient one, and valkyries have been guiding Clan Castanic from the shadows since long before the Valkyon Federation was ever imagined.
