Perfect World International Races & Classes - What to Play
PWI's races & classes are interconnected, so choosing one can get daunting. Fortunately this guide will help you choose your main!
Perfect World International offers 14 classes, grouped in 6 races, and is notoriously known for its extreme character appearance customizations offered. If you’d like your character’s head, or… other parts to be bigger than the rest of the whole body, then welcome to Character Abomination International!
Jokes aside, it’s refreshing to get “big-range” sliders, and PWI’s classes can offer a unique “Asian L2-like” alternative that’s based more on fashion & collectibles, than PvP!
Without further ado, let’s check out each PWI class individually, and hopefully help you decide your main!
