    My guess would be either Druid or a Knight type class.

    Currently Playing: ESO and FFXIV
    Have played: You name it
    If you mention rose tinted glasses, you better be referring to Mitch Hedberg.

    Skin changer probably.  So yeh, basically a WoW like druid most likely.

    Good to know they are actually working on something major in 2014. Looking forward to hearing more about it.

    Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
    Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.
    Magic without Technology is fantasy.
    Magic without Nature is formless and useless.
    Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
    Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

    From the picture i can see the new class would definitely be the "sightseer"

    Also a good guess - considering there is all kinds of tobacco to be smoked ingame...

    Call me when I can get a hobbit companion pet that is always bickering about being hungry, getting drunk and/or high, and picks up my loot.

    Hmmm, wonder if it's race specific.
  • Po_ggPo_gg Twigwarren, WestfarthingPosts: 3,283Member Uncommon

    I admit I'm not very thrilled about this, they should focus on much more pressing matters... LotRO is just fine in the class department imo.

    We have 2 (+2) tanks, 2 (+2) healers, 2 (and a half) cc, 1 pet class (ok, make that two as well, who said a nicely woven banner can't be a pet), 3 buff/debuff, 1 sneaky backstabber, 1 versatile jack-of-all-trades, and while all of them can dps, there are 3 mainly dps classes as well (and a half, looking at you, rune-keepers with names like "Idontheal" and "Pwnyougood" :) )


    True, Paiz hinted after the dumbification (she called it class revamp) that with the changes they can now add new stuff in the game, but I don't think anyone guessed a new class. Anyhow, just for the lolz, "What class do you think it could be? Let us know in the comments!" - I say ents. I mean, who else could more effectively utilise the newly implemented trait-trees? :)  (ok, that was a weak one, humbly /apologise)

    They'd have rocks for ranged dps, some mild cc (afforementioned rocks for stun, and vines for rooting), and of course melee dps in close range. Oh, wait... ranged and melee dps with some mild cc? We just have the hunter for that...

    They said its free for every race

    Or this guy.  Either a hobbit companion pet or this lil guy.

    Class: Who?

  • Po_ggPo_gg Twigwarren, WestfarthingPosts: 3,283Member Uncommon

    Chickens are already in game, with cool skills - true, without the chance of getting gear, or levelling up.

    But that's the point, reaching Isengard as a lvl1 chicken, that's a challenge of epic magnitude :)

    Shapeshifter - Beorning.

    Beorning - on the other hand that was a race of people .. so who knows.
