    Default Novelty Souls/Charater Identity

    Been thinking a little bit about novelty souls and how people have been thinking about character identity the chloromancer soul really brought it to light for me so bear with me here.

    Novelty souls that would be like an appearance tab of the soul, the soul you like best out of your calling. So say the soul that is your favorite in playstyle the novelty soul that would encompass the characteristics of how that soul would emote, dress, animations ect. I find alot of people are posting about missing those things about the hybrid class system that would give you identity but at the same time you can still pick up any souls you like for actual combat.

    Of course we wouldn't see anything like this at launch but with the prospect of novelty souls in the future I think it would be a really fun idea.

    I would love to see a dancer as a novelty soul, with extra animations of course.

    I'd love it if they copied the soul build mechanic over into crafting, gathering, appearance, etc. The trees might not be as large but being able to spec for certain emotes, appearance, and gathering/crafting bonuses would be a lot of fun and really add to character identity.

    Here is my idea in this other thread:

    IDEA: The Harborman - Novelty Soul

    There are some other ideas in that thread including:

    The Horticulturist - herb gathering
    The Smithmaster - armorsmith/weaponsmith

    (Elth's ideas)
    Hunter: Emphasis on Skinning, Tanning, working leather, fletching arrows and crafting bows.
    Pharmacist: Enhances Alchemy, Brewing and other medicinal or pharmaceutical professions.
    Master Chef: Cooking.
    Jeweler: Enhances fossiking (Finding gems), gemcutting and gold/silversmithing.

    Yeah my idea is kinda more for the current souls but as a novelty appearance so if you picked Marksman some many look like this

    Eg.
    Equips bow as main appearance weapon
    All combat arts have a ranged animation


    So even if you are a Riftstalker/Bladedancer/Bard in your current spec you would take on the appearance and style of a Marksman.

    Bard may be

    All animations include musical animations including instruments and musical notes
    All combat arts have a melee appearance.

    Not having played yet hard to tell exactly what each soul would have that would be original to the soul but I think you get the idea.
