well, instead of just waiting for news, or flaming each other in threads, how about a game?

create one of the over 40+ classes that "could" be in EQN.

Ruleset:

one armor type

two Weaponsets, with 4 skills per set

A combination of offensive, defensive, movement and utility skills for the 4 character slots. Max of 3 times the same slot type.

a short description of the dedicated role outside of the classical trinity.

No Multiclassing yet

 

 

Example:

Warrior

  • heavy armor
  • hammer&shield skills
1.force full blow(base attack), 2. skull breaker(short stun), 3.unstoppable force(charge attack), 4.shield bash(knock back) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=1-RNx4bb5-Y#t=1177)
  • halberd skills
1.pike it(base attack), 2.whole round(aoe attack with snare), 3. attack the feet(root/immobilize), 4. come over here(pull back)
  • character skills
Whirlwind(offensive),Leap(movement),armored up(defensive, takes less damage for a short time),rally call(utility,buffing group with running/attack speed)
  • role
A melee harasser and controller. keeping enemies where he wants them. the new way of tanking

red skills are taken from already revealed information's

 

 

i'm looking forward to your ideas. And dont forget we have 40+ classes to discover! Well, until SOE reveals them

I'm thinking that the 2nd warrior hammer/shield ability is probably some kind of position-based block... Anyways, just for fun here is a class that I think might be cool:

 

Shield-bearer:

  • Heavy Armor
  • Sword & Kite shield skills:
  1. Strike - Standard attack (short range)
  2. Shield ally - Block the next attack that would hit any ally near you
  3. Plant shield - Place shield on ground, blocking damage to everyone behind you (in a cone) but immobilizing you
  4. Advance - slowly walk forward with shield up, pushing enemies back and doing damage, while preventing damage to allies behind you.
Edit: How about a shield that makes your "plant shield" also blind enemies in front (like a mirror shield)?
  • Spear & Round shield skills:
  1. Spear Lunge - standard attack (longer range)
  2. Deflect - place shield up, deflecting the next ranged attack that would hit or pass near you
  3. Throw shield - Throw shield at enemy, doing damage and disorienting them for a short time
  4. Wild charge - Toss spear then rush to it with shield up, damaging enemies in front of you and fearing weak-willed ones
  • Character skills
  1. Latch on (utility) - Grab on to enemy, attaching you to him and slowing him down by some %
  2. Defensive posture (defensive) - reduce damage taken but slow movement
  3. Rush to aid (movement) - Rush to a nearby ally
  4. Bodyguard (defensive) - Keep ally protected, guarding them from some % of damage for a while
The shield-bearer is a defensive-oriented warrior that can be highly mobile with spear/round shield or very protective with sword/kite shield.  More defensive than the warrior, has many ways of protecting allies while damaging enemies.
 
Just trying to brainstorm this one class made me think of all kinds of fun new types of game mechanics that may be in EQ:N! Thanks for this thread its a fun one!

Lust Busty Bar Wench Betty: Her skills are many and well experienced, her tools of choice all too familiar. Only well seasoned players can unlock this class, and it comes with quite a price. Also depending upon character build and expertise in play style you may get larger gold drops. However you are prone to disease and possible nine month periods of down time. You have a special enrage but it can only be used once a month, it increases proficiency in throwing mugs by 400%

Hey! I'm not trying to be funny! This should in my humble opinion be a roleplaying class with levels and emote/social based abilities. Perhaps even usage of taps, ability to sing, and certain seductive talents. I'm very serious here, however I won't dispute claims against my stability or character.
