Owlcat Games has detailed all the new archetypes coming into the game, with the archetypes being revealed in two separate parts on Steam. The first part discusses archetypes like the most anticipated Drunken Master, the aggressive Chelaxian Diva, the powerful double-weapon yielding Titan Fighter, and more. The second part explains the new archetypes released recently and includes details of even more new archetypes players can expect in the DLC.

The Sable Company Marine archetype for the Ranger will let you travel with a hippogriff and let them engage in mounted combat as well. The hippogriff can wreak havoc by diving down towards enemies and using its wings to knock them back, which sounds very exciting indeed. The Bladebound archetype for the Magus (inspired by the Castlevania series) will have a sentient Black Blade as its ally in battle. The Blade will not only help in combat but also protect them while they're unconscious and while switching weapons. If you ever wanted to have a weapon as a loyal partner, then this archetype fits the bill.

We also learned more about the Mantis Zealot archetype for the Warpriest, who moves quickly and uses serrated blades to shred their foes as well as summon a horde of mantises to swarm them. This sounds incredibly badass, as you'll have a small army of mantises under your command to help you out at any moment. For a more range-focused build, players can choose the Kinetic Sharpshooter archetype for the Kineticist, as it fires charges. It's a pretty simple build at first glance but it's likely to be one of the more powerful ones if used properly.

Pathfinder Magic Deceiver archetype

Finally, Owlcat Games expands upon the Magic Deceiver archetype for the Arcanist, which really sounds cool as it'll let you deceive the magic itself. You'll be able to use two different regular spells that will result in a powerful fused spell designed to manipulate and fool your enemies in battle. This is probably one of the more standouts from the new DLC, which is bound to make it much more exciting.

The archetypes in A Dance of Masks DLC are extremely varied and players will surely enjoy figuring out what suits their playstyles. There's a lot of uniqueness in these archetypes which makes them really powerful in their own way.
