What inspired me to suggest this is the Outlaw spec of Rogues. While i really enjoy Outlaw and is the only reason i play Rogue, i don’t understand why it is Rogues who have it.
Rogues are meant to be assassins basically. Hiding in the shadows to strike the enemy when he least expect it.
Outlaw is the spec that “break” this fantasy.
So i had this idea for an entirely new spec: The Swashbuckler.
Pure melee. Something like a mix between warrior and rogue using one handed weapons in both hands. While being fast, they also go headstrong in combat screaming like savages and using special attacks that uses pistols in short distance.
Pure distant. This one would be like the attacks that the Overseer Korgus in Tol Dagor uses.
Rifle attacks and bombs, Blunderbuss and explosives. This would make the second class to uses physical distant weapons the first being hunters.
Only downside is that they would require to use rifles only. So more rifles would have to be implemented in low level zones and new ones in order to counter balance that.
And this last spec is special, it involves using dark magic from the depths of the ocean. A mix between kvaldir magic and Tidesages magic.
It is a melee spec with one handed weapon in the right hand and in the other it uses a magic chain with a hook at the end that will only been seen when attacking.
So this is just an idea i had to put out there. If a class like this gets done one day, oh boy imma gonna roll as a Davy Jones devil
Drink up me hearties yo ho!
