Core Features

Skyforge is an action-combat oriented MMO. The combat design is inspired by the top features of the best action and fighting games. Skyforge's over the top combat visuals and mouse look control, with optional direct targeting, enables players to deal breathtaking combo strikes, devastating finishing attacks and show off their larger than life powers.

What are the benefits of becoming a god in Skyforge?

Although a player's character starts off as immortal, gaining power through divine acts and earning prestige can propel them to divine-hood, allowing them to become gods capable of much more than mere immortals.

Once an immortal has assumed their divine form, they'll grow in size and take on a unique physical appearance which they have chosen. Beyond their looks, a character's god form is also much stronger, possessing additional power, along with resistances to damage and crowd control. They can even create physical objects, including equipment!

Through choices made in the Ascension Atlas, players may tailor their god's special abilities to suit the situation. While in their divine form, players can even switch between classes in combat. Additional Information can be found here: Unlocking the power of your Divine Form

What is the Divine Observatory?

Perched high above the clouds, the Divine Observatory acts as a central hub used by a player's immortal character to monitor and react to the cries for help from mortals across Aelion. Through the Divine Observatory, players are able to choose from dozens of unique adventures spanning the entire globe.

For every plea a player responds to through the Observatory, their good deeds will be rewarded with increased power, resources and the ongoing adoration of those they've aided. Every 40 minutes, the Divine Observatory updates to show the latest changes and active “hot-spots” available to players. These available adventures vary in size, allowing players to choose the content that best suits them at that moment.

As a player's prestige grows, additional adventures will automatically become available; offering players a variety of new rewards upon completion. Many of these rewards can then be used to purchase character skills and talents, unlock new classes and buy cosmetic outfits.

How do you gain followers in Skyforge?

As an immortal in Skyforge no good deed goes unnoticed. As players answer the calls for help from mortals through the Divine Observatory, they'll gain followers whose worship contributes towards their total power.

Certain special followers will even perform deeds in your name. Called adepts, these heroes come with a variety of professions which allow a player to send them out into the world of Aelion to perform special tasks on behalf of them. These tasks range from cleansing a plagued area to fending off invading Outlaws.

Doing so will reward the player with special items, earn experience for that adept and increase the overall number of followers a player has in the affected area.

What is the Ascension Atlas?

The Ascension Atlas is what ties all of Skyforge's character progression together. Comprised of a vast network of nodes, the Ascension Atlas gives a player the flexibility needed to develop their character in a myriad of ways depending on their preferred playstyle. From the start, players are able to easily navigate the Ascension Atlas in order to read each node and plan their character's progression path accordingly.

Using the Ascension Atlas, players can spend points earned to unlock new skills, talents and individual stats. Alternatively, they may choose to work towards an entirely new class, thanks to Skyforge's flexible class system.

When unlocked, the upper progression level found within the Ascension Atlas allows players to earn special perks or entirely new classes. Unlocking a new class node allows a player to freely swap to that class while out of combat and still retain their character's global progress. The player can then proceed to work on their newly unlocked class without having to start over with a new character.
