Am I the only one who found it wierd that they linked guns and ninjas ? You have one that starts in about 1400-1600 (depending on your usage of "gun") and another that is up to a two thousand years before guns.

 

They're so far apart when it comes to the question of "fitting" in high fantasy that it just didn't make sense.

I have a major problem with "guns" being in high-fantasy MMOs, and I blame WoW for the growing usage of them. Even primitive guns don't make sense. 

 

Ninja's on the other hand..they fit just fine. Not sure why anyone would be so against it. I'd be happy for EQN not to be so strictly Euro-high fantasy and include other elements like they did with DoN and a few things in Eq2...you already have monks that are most definitely not "European"

It's a combination of Nightingale Armor with the Mod Truebound Deadric Armors

And it's not gonna stop either. I'm convinced this is going to be a kiddie game. SOE will give a whole new definition to the term Nerfing my MMO.

I feel that the state of the genre is such that a total and complete failure is needed so it can be reborn anew.
I'm actually hoping this new generation of 8 button MMOs will make that happen.

Guns were a part of the Warcraft fantasy universe.   Its not like they pulled them out of their ass and placed them in WoW!

There is no reason guns can't be fantasy.

I cannot fiddle but I can make a great state of a small city.

Guns i don't like but Ninja was probably one of the most interesting classes and definitely the most fun tank class in all of FFXI.

Elemental ninjutsu debuffs and nukes with fast attacking dual katanas?  What's not to like?

The one thing the poll questions, and dev opinions on those polls, show me is how incredibly early this game still is in development.  It still seems like it's in the planning stage in so many ways.  Scary how many people are hailing this the second coming already at this point with posts like "EQN FOR LIFE!!!!!" and such.  wow

I fail to see how scattered gun powder could work against a suit of plate.

The first devices identified as guns appeared in china around 1000AD, and by the 12th century the technology was spreading through the rest of Asia, and into Europe by the 13th century.

Ninjas didnt really appear till the 17th century.

So historicly speaking... guns would make more sense then ninja's.

What doesn't make sense about early guns?

A lot of high fantasy games borrow a lot of their design, in terms of armour and weapons, from the late middle ages, mainly the 15th and 16th century.  Things like full suits of plate armour (Gothic/Milianese styles), sword designs, etc.

This is around the time you had Matchlock guns and Wheelock guns, the mid 15th century and 16th century.

So to me I don't see how it makes no sense for them to be in a high fantasy game that borrows a lot of designs from the late middle ages.

I guess when many people hear AND/OR see the words or suggestions involving  guns, they think modern rather than WoW, GW2, powder, magic, crystalized, and etc. Not to mention that from research, gnomes where in EQ1, now from my understanding they made some advance things, I asked my friends who have played eq1 and 2 if guns could make sense in next, didn't take long from comming to the conclusion that it'd make sense even lore wise.

Guns like rifles and pistols/dual pistols would bring in more variety to the table aswelll. 

As for ninja, I believe it could be used for like thief or something, more universal word at least.

Ohhhhh SNAP!!!!

Seems like one thing after another that SOE does to make one more weary of EQN.  Seriously.... are they that lost that they can't come up with their class desicions?  It's not like they have a wide array to chose from and what about the "40 classes" they tooted their horns about?  Sounds like they are throwing ninjas in there for the sole reason to attract more to EQN as ninjas have always been a popular thing.

If that's the case then why even bother with a poll?  Seems like EQN is too worried bout stepping on peoples toes even when they are in the full right.  Makes me worry that they'll just do whatever the masses cry for, NOT a trait you want in a company imo.  Rather see companies stick to their guns but not conceited enough to refuse to take criticism and re-evaluate decisions when needed.

Seems another person doesnt quite know what a ninja actually is.. they are not what holywood trows at us, the so called.. stealth assassins only where a very small fraction of the ninja life.

So while the actual ninja clans didnt truely arise around 17th century, the poor-man's clans did excist long before them. That and.. historics wherent all that interested in he peasants and focussing more on nobility and aristocrats. This is why its so hard when actual ninja clans formed up.

Funny isnt it how the history books are swinging both ways

 

Not to mention it really isnt all that hard to come up with 40 classes, especially considering a class doesnt have to be a combat class per say.

Im sorry but to me you seem to grasping for straws to ..dislike

thats all in the eye of the beholder, it seems more like they want to give people the feeling their ideas and oppinions DO matter. Its a safe bet that they know what ever they deside there will be more then enough people being unhappy with the decisions being made.

Yea sure normal people. But gnomes? Come on man nothing is normal about them, even in EQ1 they were making giant sized cog wheels instead of using teleport spells like sane people....crazy buggers.

I for one wouldn't mind a ninja like class, it pretty much sums up what the rogue has become in most MMO's anyway...someone above said ninjas are different than thieves because they have teleports and invisibility....um....isn't that on the action bar of 99% of the rogues out there?

 

edit: notice I said ninja like...as in something with a totally different lore but still a secretive group of killers...they should not live in a pagoda...
