Battle Classes is a multiplayer PVP oriented mod, that fits into default combat system of Minecraft and doesn’t make players overpowered against vanilla enemies.

Battle Classes is a newly started combat oriented modification, providing MMORPG classes with their abilites in an improved complexity of combat system. Each class has its own weapon type (for example.: Staves for Mages, Broadswords for Warriors etc…) that allows the players to use their abilities and spells (detailed description below), and also 3 tiers of armor sets, those grant bonus attributes (such as: spellpower, agility etc…) to make these spells more powerful.

How to play:

How to pick your first class? To pick a class you have to interact with a custom weapon (Broadsword/Long Bow/Staff). Once you have a weapon of a class, you need to Right-Click on the weapon and the it will immediatly fill the actionbar on the top of the screen with spells/abilities of that class. You can change your class at any point of the game by Right-Clicking on a weapon of an other class.(Note: Choosing a class gives global cooldown for 8 seconds.)

Controls! To control your spell actionbar, you can use the same controls as the item action (mousewheel or number keys), but first you need to select that. Press button "b" (configurable) to toggle action bar selection. The slidebar of the selected actionbar will turn into yellow so you can see which actionbar are you controlling.(Alternatively you can use key "g" and "h" to directly step forward or backwards on the upper actionbar, even without selecting it.)

Casting a spell/Using an ability! Once you have picked a class and chosen a spell, you only need to Right-Click on the weapon of the class and hold it down (like a bow). Some of the spells/abilities are instant some of them have a longer cast time!

Armors and Weapons. Each class has a specific armor required. You can wear anything you want, but your spells/abilities require a special attribute to make your spells/abilities more powerful, that is different for all of the classes. (For which class, what kind of gear requires, see the detailed class descriptions below.) As you may have read before, every class has its own weapon type, but there are more weapons from each type.
Important: The better weapon you are using, the more spells/abilities of your class you can use!

Cooldowns. Some of the spells/abilities need a certain amount of time to be able to use again. This is called cooldown. (For further information about cooldowns see the detailed descriptions of the classes below.)
(Note: Choosing/changing to a class gives 8 seconds of cooldown for your full actionbar.)

Role of original combat items. You can still use vanilla weapons (swords and the bow) as they not being modified so they are not weapons of any classes. You can use them anytime you want without changing your class.
