More Race/Class matches sooner?

Post by Mamozen » Mon Sep 24, 2018 7:59 am

Hello. I am curious to try out this server but I am curious about at least one part of your plans. Do you plan to add more Race/Class combos sooner than when they originally came out (such as Human Hunter or Night Elf Mage)? Are you at least open to discussing it?

Update:

Human hunters I imagine are fine... but at this point in the timeline I'm really not so sure about Night Elf mages given that arcane magic is very strictly banned. Though I could see a case for maybe RPing as one of the Shen'dralar that escaped?

Right. Lore should be taken into account as well, but I was thinking in terms of adapting race/class selection with a mind for knowing what combinations had become available later on, and adjusting said availability.

That said I'll update the OP with a chart showing class/race combos, with races and classes from pre-Mists.

Interesting idea, and I'm not strictly opposed if there is lore justification. But, I don't think it would be as simple as a toggle on, it would probably take time and effort from the devs, which may be better spent elsewhere.

Just because it's a classic-based server, does it really mean we have to follow all its rules? They've already reduced the exp rate.

I think the only choices that wouldn't be actively changing the vanilla lore would be making hunter a global class like warriors. The others were added later as the lore expanded and changed (The council of three hammers bringing in Shamans, Mages, and Warlocks for Dwarves for example). And some not so explained by lore such as Gnomes and Taurens randomly becoming religious.

The global hunter class would be a really good change. Again I would like to play as a human hunter at the very least on here. Or at least a gnome hunter since their class section of character creation isn't as stuffed with options.

I wanted this also but thought that it was too outlandish to be implemented. I'm all for changes like this personally. I don't even know how people can argue that it is against lore because Blizzard changes/deletes/retcons the lore every expansion.

Undead Hunter is my favorite race/class combo. It would be awesome to play in vanilla

My opinion it's wrong and way too custom for Vanilla :) But maybe dev have different point of view.
