Yeah but we are talking EQ classes, did you play a bard in EQ?
Anyway, bring back song twisting, yeah some would say /melody is better but i like the old style.

Gonada Dahung,over 20 years of mmorpg's and counting....Please Lord, let someone make a game that had all the awesomeness of UO, EQ and EVE...
Rangers need some

Enchanter unless the cc-mechanics realy suck
Wizzard or Magician as alt
Originally posted by arieste I don't think SOE was particularly happy with how having 25 classes turned out in EQ2, so i'm guessing this will be a system more similar to Rift - like 4 classes and tons of very different specs / ways to combine them. A classless system like TSW or EVE would be awesome.
If this is how they choose to have there classes, then you can count me right out. I hate that everyone can be everything bullshit. Pick a class and get on with it.
Shadowknight, feign death pull is beast.
Alts would be, beastlord and either necro or magician.

I used to love pulling as a Necro =-) Was a lot of fun!
=-D Only on a forum can optimism be called bad and pessimism the good thing =-D Welcome to the internet and forums.
Whatever the equivalent of a performing Bard (not a buffbot) is.
Did EQ have any performance competitions?
This year should mark (if I'm not mistaken) the 18th Annual House Aspis Bardfest.
Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Yeah, I agree, I don't care for the Rift system either, four generalized arch-types, which are then broken down into something resembling individual classes based on how they are specialized. It sounds kinda neat on paper, but when it's put into practice it seriously limits diversity b/c no matter what, each class ultimately comes back to the arch-type they are based on. In a system like that, there can be no such things as EQ Bards, or pure support classes which are, by far, my favorite type of class.
I hope that they use a system most like EQlive, where classes can be wholly unique and some can exist outside the trinity of tank/healer/dps. I want something that looks more like tank/healer/dps/support.
If EQ Next was JUST like classic EQ1, Bard. No question.
I got the most function out of guild tanking with my War, and pug healing with my druid, but my bard was my favorite, even probably cementing the probability that I'll have arthritis in my hands one day.
since its supposedly a sandbox, it may not even have classes. but if it did have the same class/races as EQ, i would have to go with a fat ogre shaman like my old main.

I wouldn't have thought that game made a big enough impression on the Smed to have any carry-over, but sure, could be.
Getting rid of classes altogether is aight with me...as it only makes sense to be good at what you do over time and your type of gameplay makes you who you are...
Otherwise I usually played an unarmed monk type class in any MMORPG I played, including Everquest; if they didn't allow unarmed classes I played an archer type ranged stealth killer, which was mostly the case as unarmed fighters were hard for game developers to impliment and program as I was told time and again
Had one in EQ and EQ2.
Would love a Ratonga Enchanter, I hope Ratonga make it into the base game.
Was really eager to play a Troll Shaman in EQ2 but they nerfed the class-defining slows.
Killing dragons is my shit

well being a sanbdbox it could be skill based to give the most freedom possible.
not saying that is what it likely will be, i am just saying we don't know for sure.
Someone needs to make a poll out of this......go on.....
