Why can we expect for a new Battle Style?
Until now, we have 8 Battle Styles (aka class) which are: Warrior, Blader, Wizard, Force Archer, Force Shielder, Force Blader, Gladiator (2014) and Force Gunner (2017). These 8 Battle Styles are divided into 3 starting villages: Bloody Ice (WA/FS/GL – wear Armorset), Green Despair (FA/FB/FG – wear Battleset) and Desert Scream (WI/BL – wear Martialset).
We can all see, 3 villages only 8 Battle Styles, we are all looking forward to getting the new Battle Style which will starts from Desert Scream and wears Martialset.
What can we expect?
As I mentioned above, the new Battle Style might come with Martialset and will start from Desert Scream. How about weapon? Will the new Battle Style use common existing weapons (like Orb, Crystal, Katana, Blade) or class-specific weapons (like Chakram – for Gladiator, Greatsword/Daikatana for Warrior) or a brand new weapon type?
Another perspective that we can think about is Magic-based character or Sword-based character. Currently we have 5 Sword-based (WA/GL/FS/FB/BL) vs. 3 Magic-based (FA/FG/WI). So there is huge chance that the new Battle Style will be Magic-based. Main reason here is for getting balance between value of Magic items (Orb/Crystal/Magic-amp accessories like Bracelets, Epaulets…).
Let’s imagine… a new Magic-based character with new weapon? Sound possible, right?
Actually, before Force Gunner is out, we have lots of rumours that the new class would be Priest (from Cabal 2). In case you don’t know, Priest is the Healer from Cabal 2, we can consider that Priest is an unique Battle Style from Cabal 2 and it is not like a hybrid like Force Archer in Cabal (I meant Cabal 1).
But you can see, if Priest would ever come to Cabal 1, then what will the role of Force Archer be? That’s why I think that Priest wouldn’t be available in Cabal 1.
Do we have other rumours? Thousands of rumours were available out there, like:
- Shapeshifter: Can transform character himself/herself into other monsters
- Dark Wizard: An alternative version of Wizard with Dark Magic skills
- Summoner: One who can summon different minions for supporting him/her
- Magic Knight: An magic caster who wears Armorset?! (sounds like Magic-FS)
Yes thousands of rumours…
The question here is why do we have to wait until 2019 to get a new Battle Style and will it be possible? There is no confirmation yet. By adding a new Battle Style, developers have to think about thousands of things and not only thinking, but also implementing. They will have to go through all kinds of questions that we keep asking:
- What kind of character will be?
- Magic-based or Sword-based?
- New weapon of old weapon? Normal weapon or Astral weapon?
- Is there any special ability for the new Battle Style (like Gladiator we have Rage system, Force Gunner we have Gun?!)
- Skills of new Battle Style, Single-Buff, Party-Buff…
It’s not an easy task at all!
Some last words…

Hi there, I'm Trung Nguyen Tri (aka Mr. Wormy), as a CABAL player, I found that our community of CABALers is lacking of good information source. Therefore, Mr. Wormy blog was found in 2011 by myself, initially on Wordpress as an unofficial weblog for CABAL Online. Through the time, I enlarged Mr. Wormy's channels on other social networks like Twitter, Youtube, Google+ and also Instagram.
