The two heroes: a condemned warrior and a mystic brought back to life.

3. Classless Character Development

If you’re playing by yourself, you’ll create both heroes.  If you’re playing with a friend, either online or in couch co-op, you’ll each create one character and control only them.  The initial character creation involves distributing stat points and choosing the first skills.

After that, it doesn’t really matter if you’ve chosen your character to be a Battlemage or a Fighter.  The level-up system is fairly classless.  You have six main stats: strength, dexterity, intelligence, constitution, speed, and perception.

In addition to those main stats, there are some sub-stats and social attributes that you get during the game.  You can also choose skills from any of the six schools. 

There are a lot of options, and subsequently a lot of ways to mess things up.  Don’t let that scare you though.  Feel free to experiment a bit. 

The best thing to do is to have a heavy hitter with swords and then your other character be a magic user.
