In the game, there are two main types of characters:
- Player Characters (controlled by real people)
- Non-Player Characters or NPC (controlled by NCsoft gaming software)
There are three races in total, of which, only two can be chosen by player characters, the last race is computer controlled by NCsoft gaming software. Each race has eight character classes that you can choose from, each class having its own unique set of talents and abilities. Depending on your class, you can choose to build your character’s talent trees for healing, damage-per-second (DPS), tanking or a combination.
