Grand Chase gets another character class..erm, job... whatever.

NTREEV seems to be serious about this Grand Chase thing. It's an action-brawler MMO that I've passed on some details about in the past. The brawling part is job (aka class) based, and as with class based gaming, each class has it's own abilities. One of the main characters has suddenly revealed he is a Duelist, the new class, sorry, job in Grand Chase, and players will get a chance to see his abilities before deciding if they want their own characters to be duelists later in the month. I still haven't played this but eventually I'll probably give it a try. It's not like I'm actively subscribed to 3 MMO's that I've been ignoring to work on my other reviews or anything. Hit the jump for more details.

Sieghart was a renowned hero of Bermesiah 600 years ago, but
disappeared in the midst of ruins. Reappearing in the times of Grand
Chase, he tells the people that the Highlander gods saved him from
death and gave him the gift of immortality. He joins the Grand Chase
to stop the God of Conquering from a planned invasion to Bermesiah.
Sieghart bears the name of Elesis' grandfather and has a chargeable
