Allow players to make hero classes in World of Warcraft by combining any two level-capped classes they have into a new character which shares core features from each. I was quite intrigued by the idea of the Palalock; the Shamage (pronounced similar to Michael Jackson’s cha’mone) might be fun; I imagine the Hunterogue would be king of PvP; and Death Druids and Warrior Priests would probably be quite popular too.
Curiously enough this came from my Lord of the Rings Online play, where I’ve been avidly levelling a Hunter, and dreamed of merging my Hunter with my Warden to create a hero class with the ranged bow damage, traps and tricks of the Hunter, and the self-healing avoidance tanking of the Warden. I don’t want much, eh? Just a character class so overpowered that it forces bits across the network hard enough to bring down the server hardware.
Still, this MMO fanatic can but dream fanciful dreams.
This could also rather splendidly be applied to WAR – just imagine it…
Witchmagus – Stealth followed by devastating evisceration, while balance don a floaty disc
Flameslayer – Explosive detonations and slice ‘n’ dice fun
Disciple of Squig – Group heals via the sacrifice of animated fungus
Shadowgineer – Rubbish at pretty much everything (some things never change…)
I’m interested to know what the sound of server hardware being bought down by the pure awesomeness of class mashups would be like – any ideas?
“I’m interested to know what the sound of server hardware being bought down by the pure awesomeness of class mashups would be like – any ideas?”
Philosophically speaking I believe it’s analogous to the sound of either one bear clapping, the pope shitting in the woods, or a tree falling on a catholic when no one else is around to hear it.
Aha, so ‘Koan’ becomes ‘Pwn’ then?
Sounds great, where do I sign up? Having long ago hit 80 on my troll hunter (once you roll troll you never re-roll) I would love the chance to at least make her a tiny bit competitive in PvP again.
Blizzard pay attention, or else! I’m a gamer, a nun and I have a ruler!
For mercy’s sake Blizzard, do as the lady says, she knows how to use that ruler!
