Greetings, glorious adventurers! If you're joining in our Alpha One spot testing, please follow the steps here to see all the latest test info on our forums and Discord!

The Unofficial Official "Name that Secondary Class: Ranger!" Game


With 64 potential class combinations, we can't keep calling it Ranger / fighter !  That's not very immersive...  It's time to play "Name that Secondary Class!"  

The way the game works is you type the class, such as tank/ tank, and what you would recommend calling that class.  I will take your responses and add them as suggestions to the original post.  After 1 weeks time, we'll move onto the next set of classes.   When we're done with that, we'll open the polls!

No jumping ahead!  If you really want to name that Bard/Bard, you have to stick with us until the end!!!

If you haven't seen it already, check out all of the awesome suggestions so far!
Tanks, Fighters, Rogues, Fighter, Mages, Clerics, Summoners, and Bards.

You can still add names to those threads if you can think of any! Or open up discussion on why a previously used name should be removed. If a majority of the original voters ask to remove it, I'll remove it!

Thanks for playing!

  • @AutumnWillow I :heart: katniss too, but i'm practically a romantic teenage girl when it comes to what books and movies i like.

    freespiryt solid list.  I like heavy bowman and balista for that ranger tank.

    Quinlan1998 my bad!  it was late when I did this last.  Hopefully it's fixed now.

    Nwahwithattitude Hi there!  Welcome.  We've been doing one primary class per thread.  I do have a fighter thread referenced in the OP.  Would you mind posting those recommendations there?  I don't think we've gotten to mage yet.

    @Enrif What's the connection between ranger + cleric = druid.  Just the nature connotation of ranger?  I saw a few voted that way.

    @Wreyna I enjoy this too!  It's good to see repeat customers.  ;)

    @Ruby437 I like balista a lot, but i'm a sucker for roman.

    In 1st Edition AD&D Ranger + Cleric = Druid..... combo of the foci on nature and religion.
    But, actually, Cleric was the primary class.

    If Cleric/Ranger is Druid...I think
    Ranger/Cleric might be Shaman.

    Pure speculation on my part but those 2 names seem more suited to clerics/or even summoners (Summoner/Ranger) due to the roles Druids and Shaman more Arcane

    (Martial and Arcane being used by Steven to split the 8 archetypes into martial and arcane classes)

    I envision Rangers to be martial classes, so the arcane class secondary will augment with some arcane augment. And I try to name my Rangers with martial combat in mind.

    I'm not sure which 2 names you mean.
    I said Cleric/Ranger  = Druid
    And in AD&D Druid was a sub-class of Cleric.
    So...we seem to be in agreement there.

    Summoner is typically arcane magic rather than divine magic.
    And Druid was a subset of Cleric more for healing - healing is typically divine magic.
    The druid is a sub-class of cleric. Druid spells are intended to strengthen, protect, and revitalize a party as a cleric, but his spells are more attuned to nature. A druid also is able to change once per day to any mammal, once to any reptile, and once to any bird.  The creature must be a real natural creature not smaller than a bat, bullfrog, or bluejay, up to about twice the weight of the druid.  The change will also heal d6x10% of any damage taken by the druid.

     A Druid would change into creatures rather than summon companions.
    I envision Rangers to be naturalists, who are great at wilderness tracking and trapping and animal lore and forestry. Also great hunters with bow or knife or spear.
    In AD&D, Ranger was a sub-class of Fighter that could also use low-level druid spells and mage spells.
    If Ranger is the primary class Druid is not a primary class, I would make Druid he name for Cleric/Ranger. More divine than arcane.

    Summoners typically use arcane magic rather than divine magic.
    Shamans typically use divine magic. Typically they are tribal priests.
    And I think of tribal priests being very close to nature - hence Ranger.
    So, Ranger/Cleric = Shaman

    In Ashes, there is not as much focus on combat as in previous MMORPGs.
    But, I'm not really in competition. I'm just sharing background RPG info.
    No clue where the devs will choose to go.
    And I'm not negating anyone else's suggestions.
  • I meant both shaman and druids seems to be caster type, so having a ranger (martial) primary feels odd to me. 

    Yeah, I naturally think of the DnD style of Arcane/Divine division as well. Steven seems to lump all casters together as Arcane though, Clerics, Mages, Bards and Summoners. While martial classes are Tank, Fighter, Ranger, Rogue. So I was using arcane in the context of what he said. Haha.

    Well, that's a great visual for the Kickstarter.
    Easy half & half split.
    We will have to see if that is more general for ease of conversation when they're not ready to delve into the details of each class or whether it's literal.

    Seems likely there will be a distinction between divine magic and arcane magic, since we have Religion and Divine nodes - but maybe not.

    Theorycrafting wouldn't be any fun if we all instantly reached the same conclusions.
    We'd have definitive lists completed already and be at endgame, twiddling our thumbs waiting for alpha.  :p

    I love it when people make agreements sound like disagreement. :p
  • great talk, but i take absolute no inspiration from AD& screw that thought process.

    for me Ranger/Cleric is Druid because it deals more with the actual nature and it's inhabitants. later when the Cleric thread goes up, Cleric/Ranger is a Shaman for me as Shamans deal more with the animal spirits. 

    so thats that
