What is your main character's in-game name, and how did you come up with it?

A: I love playing alts and plan on doing that with Pantheon. I usually have one character that I play more than others, but I really do not consider them a main, and I have not decided which one that will be yet. My names are a secret.

What interests you the most about Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen?

A: Definitely the focus on group-based combat. Even though it takes a bit more work to get started, grouping is always more rewarding to me when the game requires it. Mowing down mobs on your own can get boring very quickly. However, when you have to bring in other people, something interesting tends to happen, and the tougher enemies are more rewarding to take down.

What will your main race and class be and why?

A: I will play a Human as the primary race for most classes I end up playing. To start, I plan on a Human Enchanter and Human Monk, along with a Dark Myr Cleric for some flavor at a later date. Even though Humans are typically weaker, I can relate to them more. I like diving into RPGs with a human-centric focus because it makes the fantasy stand out more to me than playing a fantasy race. However, I still like mixing it up and will eventually play the Dark Myr Cleric for a different perspective on the game.

What is your favorite system, mechanic, or feature so far in Pantheon?

A: Probably the disposition system. Different enemy types should behave differently, and this system has the opportunity to give us more variety in how enemies react. As a person that enjoys playing Monks, Clerics, and Enchanters, it is going to make for some crazy challenging pulling, healing, and CC opportunities.

If you could enter the game and visit anywhere in Terminus for one hour, where would you go and why?

A: Avendyr's Pass. I like the feeling you get when you finally hit a zone that feels like you are further away from town and can be exploring the countryside. There are many adventures to be had on the way to a dungeon.

Finally, if you had to choose between being an evil Mage's assistant or being a recruit in the Thronefast Guard unit, what would you choose and why?

A: The Thronefast Guard unit. I like law, order, and justice. Being an evil Mage’s assistant means you may wind up being the evil Mage’s next experiment, or pet.
