List any suggestions for Hero classes below here. For those who don't know it, Hero classes are specialized branch classes for each of the base classes. They often focus and specialize in one branch, but fall behind in other abillities when they do so. A special quest is needed before a special class is gained.

Each bonus is preceeded with a + and drawback with a -. The hero classes are exactly the same as base class except as noted. All Hero classes have 4 new skins. Post suggestions or ideas below.

What happened to my Paladin ideas, anyhow?
Call what you have there a "Slayer", and add the Cleric and Templar.

Also, for the Soldier... Gladiator and Keshik.

I can't get the details right now, though; informe is being slow. :?

For Elf:

+Regenerates
+Faster movement
+Double jump
-Slower attacks
-Weaker attacks
-Loses mana slightly

And Dragonman for soldier, like I said earlier, would be cool, I think...

Hmmm... I'm making Assassin and... Hmmm... Why not have it have super backstab? I thought of it now, and I ended up to it now. It could backstab even in a city and nothing would happen if no one sees it. I thought it like this:
Quote:
Assassin
+Super backstab
+Faster
+Huge jump
-Only 1 jump
-Can't get more strenght
-Weak against undead

It should have a chance of instantly killing non-undead humanoids (pretty much like it says now, but I think it should only be humanoids) with every attack.

Should be fairly easy to make. Just check [HUMA] tag.

And not instant kill though... Maybe +50 damage or something like that.

I'll try to remember them as best as I can:

For the Paladin:

Templar
+More maximum health
+More strength
+Can bless weapons as an unarmed attack
-Less mana return
-Unable to heal when unarmed

Slayer
(All the stuff you have up there under "Crusader." I don't want to reuse that name since it's already the name of the Paladin's ability, and I think "Slayer" is more fitting.)

Cleric
+More mana
+Greater mana return
+Higher mana flow
-Less maximum health
-Less strength and dexterity


For the Soldier:

Gladiator
+Gains the ability to use improvised weapons
+More dexterity
+More maximum health
-Less strength
-No jousting

Keshik
+More dexterity
+Bonuses while mounted
-Less maximum health
-Poor armor

Oh, and on the Berserker:
+Can drink Fafnir-Cola to (temporarily) increase movement speed, jump height, strength, and dexterity, while simultaneously losing wisdom and defense.
:lol:

...No, but really. It's a great idea. CAFFEINE POWER!
...or something.

Chainsaw had the best idea in "Class list" topic for Assassin, I think.
