affliction specialist

i dont know if this has been considered in any regard but its a class I never see in any MMO really or at least done well I would love to see one in this game and the possibility of it what do you guys think if anyone knows jason asano that would be my idea of the perfect class even while knowing it could never be that good because it wouldn't be fair to other classes but still as a general idea here's a short summary for those who don't know

Any Rogue may learn to use poisons, but few delve into the depths of true mastery. A secretive sect of those with Rogue training who have delved deep into the mysteries of the body, alchemy, and toxins have recently made themselves known. Slaying powerful beasts by barely scratching their skin, and assassinating even the most well guarded, the reputation of the Affliction Specialists grows daily.

they mainly focus on DOT and effects that cant be clenased or healed without first removing the base effects etc or having all of the curses poisons etc eaten by the caster and converted to a holy damage instead that ignores all restiances etc and tons of stacking effects maybe even familars who can do things like leech swarm anyways if you think this is a cool class to maybe we can get it in the game if enough of us care about it

    Read those books last year and I agree.

    The book series is He Who Fights with Monsters by Shirtaloon for those interested.
    Most people never listen. They are just waiting on you to quit making noise so they can.

    It's been so long since I played, I Cant swear to it. But I think Rift had a class that could kinda specialize in dots. You could cast a few dots and kite them around till they died. I may be wrong about it being Rift though.

    I think the moment you come up with ideas that make you God as a player and everyone else a chump you need to go back to the drawing board.

    You've literally designed the class that 90% of people would play and then you'd have Gods Killing Gods.

    It probably is going to be a possible build path for the rogue or ranger, with poisons and bleeds, and maybe other hexes for rogues. Very annoying to play against so I wish they wont be even a thing lol. But if they are, their weakness will be their squishyness and vulnerability to CC / discovery spells to prevent stealth and also, debuff removers.

    afaik this is gonna be one of the builds for the summoner. you put curses, dots and debuffs on your enemy and watch them die :D

    Reminds me of my Spiteful-Spirit build in Guild Wars. Apply debuffs. Sit back. Watch them kill themselves.

    unrelated note but Infinite Dendrogram anime with there live service injection of monsters and content so to speak would make for one bad ass MMO imagine there was a group of people like 5 maybe since we don't have ai at this level that could interfere with the world and random players in areas by spawning a unique boss with special rewards once in a lifetime kinda thing or everything is peaceful in the world they just mess it all up with some sorta massive threat or something I'm not good at writing this out but I think you get idea kinda like an adventure guild that actually feels alive not just some go kill this mob quest your just hanging around town and all of sudden there's some diamond rank monster spawn that gonna destroy a village if people don't get there fast enough to deal with it or maybe a abnormal ambient magical event takes place in a field in the middle of no where spawns a random unique piece of gear that maybe has a niche use but is super good at it only one person can get it and it will be the only in the game period give people that feeling of really belonging to a world where real life random shit happens and if your there at the right time right place you get to own a piece of that I know there be mad jealousy but that's life man your ether there or your not just how it works there's no schedule no time zone no direction they have guidelines which they can and cant do the rest is up to them kinda thing or something along those lines I think it would be awesome to see some form of live injection into an MMO bring back the game master in the sense they actually legends themselves
