Skyforge on Switch: Unleash the Power of 18 Classes

Gameplay |

Immortals are blessed with many abilities, including the power to change their form and channel their divine powers in weird and wonderful new ways. Skyforge has 18 unique classes that Immortals can adopt, each with distinct strengths and playstyles. Choosing the class that's best for you depends upon your personal preferences, but don’t be afraid to change it up to try something new or different—you can instantly switch between them at any time once they’re unlocked. Certain classes are easier to get to grips with, while others require time and patience to master. Trying them all is the key to unlocking your true Immortal potential!

Three classes will be available to you when you first begin your Immortal journey in Skyforge: the Lightbinder, Paladin, and Cryomancer classes. As your journey progresses, you can add more classes to your roster through normal gameplay or the purchase of premium content packs, then change to them in the menu when you’re not in combat.


Cryomancers utilize their advanced cryogenerators to compress and freeze the air around them, turning it into powerful beams of ice. Keeping a safe distance in a fight, they're capable of slowing down or immobilizing opponents by freezing them solid.




Paladins are fearless soldiers with a wide range of offensive and defensive skills. They can be found in the heart of battle, crushing foes and protecting nearby allies. Fierce fighters up close, they call upon their Holy Powers to shield allies and engage enemies from afar.




Harnessing the Power of Light, Lightbinders offer support by increasing their allies' damage while shielding them. When they direct their white-hot anger at enemies, they can disrupt their formations and inflict great damage from afar.




Archers are evasive marksmen capable of hitting targets from great distances. They carry special gadgets, including traps to slow down enemies and an assortment of electrical and fire arrows.




Fueled by rage, Berserkers can easily sweep aside hordes of enemies in their path with their fiery Chainsword. During heated battles, they strike terror into the hearts of nearby foes while inspiring allies.




Kinetics can manipulate energy thanks to special gauntlets that can hurl projectiles at enemies, surround allies in gravitational shields, and control movement on the battlefield by altering the gravitational fields around them.




Necromancers are powerful sorcerers and masters of death. Using dreadful spells, they're able to raise horrifying undead creatures and restore their health by siphoning it from their enemies. They can even transform themselves into a powerful Lich to access new necrotic abilities.




Appearing out of thin air and disappearing just as quickly, Slayers slip by undetected while leaving a trail of bodies in their wake. Their primary weapons are a pair of razor-sharp blades, but they have other cards up their sleeves that can assist them in killing opponents or retreating if a fight gets too intense.




Long-ranged weapons experts, Gunners tirelessly study and improve their weaponry, fully optimizing it to rain chaos down on enemies. Remorseless, they have no qualms about putting their destructive technology to use and blanket the battlefields with bullets, super-heated plasma and explosive rockets.




Witches and Warlocks have an arsenal of dark sorcery at their disposal: terrible curses, frightening creatures, and, of course, their trusty staff, which acts as both a powerful weapon and a means of transportation.




Monks are of a martial order, having mastered the discipline of body and mind. Wielding their battle staffs, monks fight using several special stances that enable them to perform dizzying acrobatic feats and deliver powerful blows to enemies.




Alchemists are unconventional scientists with access to an arsenal of corrosive chemical compounds and invigorating elixirs. Equipped with a portable alchemy laboratory, Alchemists can spray acid and fire at enemies to inflict significant damage.




The Knight is capable of withstanding an onslaught from numerous enemies, diverting their attention away from less protected allies. Armed with a shield and spear, they can not only block incoming attacks but also deliver crushing blows in return.




Lay down the law the old-fashioned way with nothing but two pistols and an itchy trigger finger! The Outlaw class is a charismatic, daring, and dangerous hero who brilliantly handles two side arms and, when necessary, explosives. Accurate at range and deadly up close, the Outlaw is a force to be reckoned with!




The Revenant is a melee damage dealer that makes use of black magic for combat support. Attacking foes with charged attacks reduces the cooldowns of ultimate and defensive skills drastically.




The Grovewalkers are highly proficient mages that sling wild, natural magic at their foes from afar. Don’t be misled by their nimble appearance; they can call upon the protection of their living armor to morph into hulking frontline tanks!




The Soundweaver is a support class relying primarily on their profound musical talent. These rock stars use sound waves and big beats to aid their party in battle while dishing out heavy damage. Soundweavers set up portable loudspeakers on the battlefield to support and boost their allies' morale and weaken their foes.




The Firestarter is a master of fire magic and wields a vast array of special abilities that make it an effective ranged-DPS class. Conjure blazing fireballs, cataclysmic meteor showers, and transform into a fiery feline to ignite your enemies and the world around you!
