Level 2.5: A Poetic Riddle

After a weird glitch in Level 2, you find yourself transported to Level 2.5 . You wonder what happened in that weird level, but find that you don't want to dwell on it; the game developers probably should've hired beta testers. Moving on, you find a riddle scrawled on the walls:

One kills with range or mythic pet
No passive vet this fighter yet.

Another kills by proxy host
A frightful host he proudly boasts.

One bashes skulls with just one fist
A brute, for this does he exist.

A shielded elemental mage
Dare not enrage this spellwise sage.

A righteous man, this holy knight
He conquers night with hallowed light.

To shadows this one is confined
Both flesh and mind be struck in kind.

The last a man of varied shapes
The beasts he tames, their forms he drapes.

Based off the riddle, you recognize the game and enter it's name into the keypad at the door. What game is it?

  • $\begingroup$ It sounds like it could be a variety of games that follow the typical class pattern. $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast Oct 13 '15 at 14:29
  • $\begingroup$ @EngineerToast I wanted it to be vague enough that it wasn't immediately obvious which it was (though clearly I failed) but the details provided as well as specific wording at various points helps narrow down exactly which game it is $\endgroup$ – NeedAName Oct 13 '15 at 14:39

  • $\begingroup$ Alright, too easy then. Level 3 coming soon $\endgroup$ – NeedAName Oct 13 '15 at 14:42
  • $\begingroup$ Another hint is probably the level 2.5. The perspective in which the game is called 2.5D $\endgroup$ – Ivo Beckers Oct 13 '15 at 14:44
  • $\begingroup$ Should be Sorceress, though. $\endgroup$ – Miniman Oct 19 '15 at 6:27
