New Etrian Odyssey IV Trailer Features the Fortress

If you read my MMORPG reviews (yes, I do know that Etrian Odyssey IV is not a MMORPG), you know I’m partial to tank classes. RPGs are not an exception, and when I have the liberty to chose my party, my main character is always the tank. That’s why the new Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends on the Titan¬†trailer hits close to my heart.

It introduces the Fortress class, that is basically your usual, precious tank, replacing Hoplites from Etrian Odyssey III. They boast a combination of shield and mace to keep their allies alive and still dish out some damage.

I have to say I’m not too big of a fan of the mace, as I definitely preferred the spear used by the Hoplite and even more the longsword wielded by the Protector in Etrian Odyssey and Etrian Odyssey II,¬†but I guess your mileage may vary here…
