Ar:piel Online, published by Ngine Studios and Nexon, has gotten another student to enroll: a golden eagle named Hanna! She uses dark magic and archery to combat her foes, making her an agile fighter. Similar to the L’vine and Dragon, Hanna is part of a Tactical Class. Below is the trailer that shows her combat abilities and some information about her.
More information about her is in the story cinematic, which shows the danger of gifted education in a way and how ultimately Hanna was able to use dark magic – along with how she got the black streak in her hair.
Her theme song is sung by A-Young Yoon, and begins playing at 2:18 without any interruption or other voices. The video of it contains a small montage of them recording the song, explaining how it correlates with the new character, and then a small Q+A with the singer.
Ar:piel has a lot of unique characters and classes that mix animals or traits of animals with each individual, and some of the animals they choose are actually pretty interesting (like a leopard cat and pangolin). Having a Golden Eagle sounded odd to me at first, but then I realized that this eagle in particular is one of the best-known birds of prey. With Hanna’s attacks being quick, precise, and evasive, it seems fitting with the animal of choosing.
Currently, she is the third to come out for the new class, and there are three more to come. Honestly I wouldn’t know what they would do as a character next because the animal choosings can sometimes be unpredictable, like Hanna. So, what do you think of the new character, and what do you think they might be doing next?
Currently, Ar:piel is available and free-to-play in South Korea’s Nexon.
