    Default The "My old class from X would be what soul combo in Rift?" thread. Part II.

    IT'S DEAD JIM!!

    THREAD CLOSED.


    Looks like many if not all the links are broken. It was fun theory-crafting and thanks to everyone who contributed!


    end of line



    The original discussion thread needed more reserved spots in it so I had to close it and open this one. The original thread is here: http://forums.riftgame.com/showthrea...ft-quot-thread. Do NOT post in that one, use this thread.

    I thought it might be a good idea to create one super thread for the question so many people seem to ask:

    What combination of souls/abilities would be the closet to my old favorite class from another MMO?

    Rift has an amazingly robust soul system that allows you the freedom to build a class the way you see fit. The first thing many people looking into any new MMO ask is "Is there is a class like the one from X MMO?" This thread attempts to answer that question for people looking into Rift and the various soul choices. Now, just like the dinosaurs in "Jurassic Park" or any Neo-Pagan re-constructionist religion, when reconstructing there are times when things must be substituted and work-around's taken. The end result is usually a class that plays in a similar fashion to the original but can have various degrees of variation, some small and some large. These builds are usually *not* play tested at this early stage but rather put together by people who have played the original class and done their best to capture "the feel" of that class in Rift.

    You will not find an exact copy of any class. Embrace that and realize that it's a chance to re-create a class you hold dear while personalizing it more. Some builds might look counter-intuitive at first (A Disciple of Khiane with a shield?), but all of them have merit and should be considered.

    The master soul builder is located HERE. (Not my work!)

    Quality Control
    Each build posted will be left "as is" for 24 hours in the original message before being posted to the front page. This gives anyone with objections/suggestions at least a day to comment. After that, the build will be posted. A build can still be depreciated if enough people object to it on logical grounds later. I think this is the fairest way to do this.

    In addition, anyone critiquing a build has the ability to assign one score of +1 or -1 depending on their view of said build. If you are going to assign a -1 value in a post, you must give a rational reason why. Scores per build will be cumulative. Several -1 scores will depreciate a build.

    Dual Wield Tank (a la DW Death Knight from pre-Cataclysm WoW). Warlord variation.

    Two-Handed Tank (a la standard Death Knight from WoW).

    Looks like the links are eating huge amounts of the text limit in each post. I'm thinking just labeled links would work by not applying the entire link to the text limit but I can't see how to get that to work. Anyone have an idea? In other words: Example build by bla bla: instead of the http://...

    That EQ2 Templar build is nothing like the class it's trying to be.

    EQ2 Templar is pure healing with no dps, it's all about huge single target and group reactives along with huge HP and defensive buffs.

    The closest thing to it here would be Sentinel/Purifier


    You also have Bright Wizard as a Warrior? (Warlord/Paladin/Champion)

    You either need copy and paste lessons or you're completely nuts

    Since when did a DoK use a shield? They were dual wielding strong offensive healers nothing else
    Hmm well some other time then

    Focus on water damage, snares and roots, increased damage on frozen or electrocuted enemies and buffing up your Water Elemental.

    DoKs didn't use a shield, but the way that soul works, with the instant cast melee healing and healing from melee damage is how the dok was meant to be played (in spirit, didn't translate to well because of mythic being stupid). You also don't have to use a shield, spec out of the shield abilities and pick up a magic power focus aka book or chalice. I also focused on the class mechanic, meaning melee healing, i'd rather focus on the melee healer part, not the dual wielding part, yeah it was part of the class, but not everything is possible.

    If we want to go by how they actually play than that would be sitting in our backlines spamming group heal until rapture.

    These are also meant as guides, not the end all be all, go ahead and make a dual wielding rogue bard healing build to throw up there. Multiple takes are good.

    Close, but that I mean is I can't get the <a href tag to work for some reason, something it clearly does for you in your example. How do you do it? I'm trying to use plain html, but it's not working.

    It's just [URL="link goes here"]text here[/URL

    But, I don't think that will solve your character limit issues. Which is why I suggested what I did earlier!

    Alternative take on the DAoC Friar:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14031925/rif...16,5_&lang=eng

    This version is a melee cleric with some heals over time, and most of the points are spent so it's vialbe to use a quarterstaff as weapon of choice.

    Weird.Could have sworn I tried it. In any case, I'll probably do both for length and post cleaning. Thanks!
