When is Hashan's factional class coming out?
When is Hashan's factional class coming out?
We've got plans in the works to give Hashan some tools to aide in a stronger factional identity. It doesn't include a new class though, unfortunately.
What's the general timeframe for classleads? Like, when do you expect all of them to be done?
Curious as to this rumored weaponry system overhaul I keep hearing about. Can you talk at all about that? What would it entail, how would it effect individual classes, when should we expect it changes?
Do you love me enough to give me drink-mixing yet? More seriously, given the loosening of the time restrictions on class, and @Sarapis's thread in the Golden Dais about city novicehood, I'm a little worried about the future of Houses within Achaea. Are they on the verge of some (potentially catastrophic) change? Are they being phased out? Please say "no".
What feature are you most proud of from your time as Achaea's lead producer?
Heya, I've got a couple design questions I'd love to hear your thoughts on if you're willing.Edit: My first question got ninja'd, apologies.Second, what are your thoughts on the inherent imbalances created by tying tradeskills (Forging, Concoctions, and Transmutation) to classes? If you're trying to make each class equally attractive, it would make sense to compensate those without a tradeskill with something else- namely, combat power. But an intentional gap in combat prowess between classes raises its own host of issues. Would you ever consider changing how tradeskills function in order to resolve this?Thanks for your time.
It is something that's been on my mind for a while, and moving to a system where tradeskills are no longer tied to classes is something that we'll probably do in the future.
Will there ever be a gunslinger class or a class that uses guns?Are there plans to clean up the Blademaster naming system and make the names more faction-relevant?Aetolia has been working on separating mercantile skills (like Forging, Venom, Enchantment, and so on) from class skills and revamping classes affected by the change. Would you ever consider doing the same?
How do the different types of bait affect fishing? Would a shrimp be more effective fishing in a river than a clam? Does the type of bait used make a difference between lakes and rivers?
Do we have to wait until Targossas has houses (and then awhile after) before the other houses get class/city mechanics fixed? Like... Merchants and Bards.
Is a server side balance/equilibrium queue (like Imperian has with one action possible for balance/eq or balanceless/eqless) something that is being considered for Achaea to help those of us with worse than american pings?
Are there any plans to give Runewardens bad-ass giant-earth-swords they can fling around? ... What? I wanna cast ragnarok from Golden Sun...On a more serious note.... do I even have a serious note?Are there any plans to improve goal-based pvp? Sanctioned raids give raiders something to do and a goal when raiding... but it's simply not something all raids do. Some raids are more about just getting in, camping in the city, and being pests for as long as they want. Likewise with icons, it's almost impossible to defend one once a force entrenches on the icon.Likewise, related to group pvp type things, are there any plans to overhaul ranged combat, and look at the imbalances some classes--especially with arties--bring to the table for controlling an area? Namely monks. Almost all ranged combat, aside from telepathy(and by extension kai chokes combined with one monk using telepathy) has a way to defeat it en masse. Kai choke can be defeated by holding your breath, but a few mind crushes or a throw or a batter or two and you're forced to act and no longer defended against kai choke. On the flip side, meteors, thurisaz, and cataclysms can all be stopped by readily available environmental changes. Meteors and cataclysms by being indoors, thurisaz with water.I'm sure other people have other curiousities in that vein, and others that will just lulz at this. And, that's about all I have, without turning into a long-winded rant that belongs in another section for people to hate.

While I understand the desire for non-uniformity in bashing classes, have you considered giving a second-look to the less tanky classes to evaluate their attack speeds and damages?Specifically in mind are Shaman, Serpent and Alchemist however there are likely others.I'm more than willing to elaborate, but I don't really have anything prepared on the matter with numbers and calculations prepared at this moment. If you took a look at it from the non-artifacted mortal perspective for each class and just sampled a hunting ground or two for a couple level ranges I'm sure you'd notice that skills which augment a bashing attack don't really come into play if you can't survive to use them.
