Portal Knights Class & Traits Guide

Portal Knights Class Guide
As soon as you begin your adventures in Portal Knights you are given the question, Warrior, Ranger or Mage? This Portal Knights Class & Traits Guide hopes to answer that question with a detailed rundown of each of the classes available in the game. When you first launch Portal Knights you get to create your very own character. You can choose to be either male or female, and then you get to pick your class. There are three classes available for both genders, Warrior, Ranger and Mage.

As you progress through Portal Knights your character earns experience points and levels up. When you level up a particular class you get to select from a variety of different traits. Typically a choice between 2-3 each time you reach a certain milestone.
