Will there be teasers every month? xD
Yep, that's the plan!

True, having quite a few different classes doesn't make it easy to balance. Though this is actually fewer classes than we'd originally planned, and because of the removal of the scout class branch it's actually going to be much easier to balance than the old class system.

Having said that, I have personally worked on balancing the spells/feats in this class system for hours and hours and hours. And that's only one part of class balancing. Like Andre says, that's where you guys come in :) To tell us where we've gone wrong!

Rob fucking thumbs up for this teaser! More then i exspected!!

Now with that said good job all staff on this.

An now ill move on im not going to complain or nothing about the way the classes are going cause i see as this as a awesome system already .
It will so much differnt playing type for example:

So to become a ranger stright out u have to get strong basicly then you can weild the bow/crossbow soo i already see how it will work if u want a just all physical strength ranger u just stay to the middle of the classes board .

An to move on here is 2nd part basicly if u want to change the ranger up a bit you an go towords a magic user but when.u go.for.ur 3rd class adv u switch to ranger.

Now so basicly if you want a ranger with say more hp/str u go to the left side witch also will.give u alot of buff skills an prob powerful dmg skills.
But if u want ur ranger to have little bit less hp but bit more mana you turn to the right side so get that but then when taking the thrid class go ranger but along the way before u took ur thrid job u would of been able to get like light healing spells an possibly some party buff skills .
But i dunno if this is how it will pan out but thats how i would see it for the ranger dunno.
Or the ranger could be just half an half an the marksman could be more like my first example.

But i belive i understand this an i will be there to try differnt combos of it.

Well im going an.sorry but im on my cell if this post it messed up.

An again awesome teaser an i kno this system will work out.

:twisted: :like: :twisted:

Sounds good! But instead of classes, we could choose between races, it would be better :yes: But classes are fine aswell.

Well i guess you have 2 major options for that

First Option:
Tier 4 is picking your second tier 3 class
--------------------------------------------------
Second Option:
Each tier 3 class has 2 main options for tier 4 class example:

Knight


----------------- Templar(Stronger at defense and blocking and counter-attacking)

----------------- Gladiator(Enlanced melee capabilities and more melee damage)

Cleric
------------------Battle Monk(Stronger at Melee)
------------------Chanter(Stronger at buffing allies)


etc...



So which one did you think about more closely?
