The popular MMORPG MU Archangel is a mobile spin-off of Webzen’s MU Online, and as such, it offers a refreshing new take on the beloved franchise all while retaining fan faves to keep the magic alive. With its overwhelming success and the pre-registration for Southeast Asia well underway, there’s no better time than now to get to know the different classes you can choose from depending on what tickles your fancy.

Based on your preferred playstyle, you can pick your character from the Dark Knight, Dark Wizard (male / female), and Elf, each with varying appearances and stats. Attributes for your character will be determined by Strength, Agility, Vitality, and Energy - and how you take advantage of your character’s strengths and weaknesses will determine your fate in the field.
