With the Kingdom update the game has changed. Now, whenever you create a new character it is automatically on a set path.
You can change later on once you receive an Amnesia or when you get a Jack Of All Trade (Don't remember at which levels you get those).
That sucks, they should have left it like it was before where you choose your path at level 10. I am level 28 playing a Beserker that I have no interest in playing. I want to play a Protector.
