There is some potential there : tons of old and new lore to go

Fingers crossed !

A bit of Lore information regarding the Arteias (should we stick to the englih localization, or by the Korean name with english letters ?)

Sayha instilled the spirit of wind into the fourth form. This is how the race of arteias was created.

The winged race of arteias was freedom-loving and possessed undying curiosity. Giants wanted to capture and subjugate the free-flying creatures, but as soon as an arteia was locked up in a cage, it quickly lost its strength and died. Giants were left with no choice but to allow the arteias to fly free. The arteias visited the city of giants to give them news from other parts of the world.

The elves decided to seek help from the race of the wind - the arteias. Their reconnaissance skills and aerial attacks would be sufficient aid for the elves to triumph over the orcs. An elven delegation traveled to the ends of the earth to seek the help of the arteias.

"Race of the wind, come to our aid! The barbarian orcs are oppressing us with their sheer might. Let us join together and teach them their foolishness!"

But, as always, the arteias were not interested in the politics or wars of the earth. They determined to take neither side and hid themselves deeper in the inlands. The elves despaired.

Turned down by the pragmatic Dwarves and neutral Arteias, the Elves were left with no allies to wage war against the orcs.

For once, people are not talking abouts automated characters in the comments.

Some are speculating that It will be a class able to Jump. I have few doubts, since one class able to jump and not the others seems unbalanced pvp wise (harder to click on target ?)

I see it being another low CON race like the kamael were as well as low STR but high dex and wit. Another elf race with wings basically. And I don't think jumping will be that bad considering you only need to target it once and I doubt they'll be able to rapidly jump up and down nor for too high of a distance if they can even jump in the first place. Also i've yet to encounter anything more annoying to target than a female dwarf rogue with clones. >.<

I hope it won't be like kamael when they first introduced, really overpower compared to other classes for a few patches.
Anyways, really glad they decided to continue lore with old materials. Unlike some lore recently ( like Arcan city, which i never heard before).

Oddly enough. The kamael were introduced as a pvp efficient race. But when the first came out they were awful! They could onky wear light armor. Heals were only half effective. They couldn't use skills without souls and could only gather souls by killing mobs. They could only hold souls gor 10 minutes. Their CON was so low that you could stun lock them forever. They just sucked badly. It was after kamael 1.5 hellbound is when they STARTED on the path to being brokenly OP.

I wonder if this really means we're getting a new race with classes to chose from or if it's going to be like when they introduced Vampires to the game which in the end was just added npc mobs to the forest of the dead ^^"

i always wanted a race built around the holy attribute something like an angel dunno if the lore has sth. like that but i would want it although from the pic at least the Ertheis look like a mix of angels and elves so well hope its playable :D
