Biggest Issue in AoC Class Design
edited July 2018 in Ashes of Creation Design
I know the general consensus will be that its not even in Alpha 1 and to wait but there is one major glaring issue that needs to be resolved before release. The Fighter/Fighter class is named Weapon Master, when it should be named Beserker! I mean cmon devs, its 2018. How can you even think about launching a game with 56 different class names and not name one of them Beserker. @GMSteven , I'm looking at you. We talked about this.
For example, if I chose tank/tank for my character, I would undoubtedly refer to his profession as "Dwarven Defender" over Guardian every time.
No no one can stop you from calling your fighter/fighter character a "Bezerker."
I guess if they try, you can just go bezerk on the.
I personally have issues with Tank and Tellsword as class names. Tank just sounds like a placeholder name for a class that will fill that role when they could have used a number of other names for it.
Tellsword just sounds dumb to me.
But this is what we have and the actual names, as I stated beforehand, are in general irrelevant because you can either refer to yourself as whatever class if you RP OR it is going to matter much more what your abilities and rolls you fill are such as healer, tank, dps, support over your exact class.
There are too many of the "_____sword" class names IMO. Tellsword, Spellsword, Highsword? Actually, I'm slightly surprised they didn't call the Fighter/Fighter a "Swordsword" (kinda along the same lines as the "Spellmancer").
Personally, I too would like "Berserker" to be a class name in-game, though my preference would be for it to be either the Tank/Fighter or Fighter/Tank. Would also like to see "Shadowknight" for Tank/Rogue (instead of "Nightshield"), and "Monk" for Fighter/Cleric (instead of "Highsword"). Perhaps even "Druid" for Cleric/Ranger.
Am I too set in my EQ ways? Perhaps...
Ends like this.
That's our love child, between @nagash and I.
After years of battle, good vs evil, Paladin vs Necromancer, we came to realize under the fuel of our fight burned a passion that transcended alignment or common sense.
Now our love children roam the underdark.
