    Default The new Mage soul!

    First of all I would just like to say that this thread is containing only my opinions. Others have their ideas and i'd love to hear your ideas aswell!

    Looking at the image that Trion have currently provided, there's a topic down below saying a mage with a 2h sword. I agree with this to some degree.
    I believe that the new Mage Soul will be somthing like.. I know i'm going to regret this from the haters.. A type of Enhancment Shaman from World of Warcraft, but without having 2 1h's. This time they are trying it with a 2h weapon.
    Also as it is called 'Storm legion' I believe that the spells that are going to be used would be something like this,
    Something that enchants your weapon for extra damage
    Lightning shock (like WoW)

    Please post your comments below on what you think ;')

    Looks like an archetype for a Spellblade soul to be completely honest.

    I have no experience in WoW so I'm not sure if that's something similar.

    I will be royally and outrageously shocked if Trion troll and actually give mages a tank soul, especially considering the image teased to us already.

    I agree, If they mage Mage's able to tank it would be rather annoying.
    Although, they probably won't do this.. I doubt it anyway.

    Mages get a Tank Form. Call it a Spell Blade, or a Battle Mage, whatever.
    Probably uses magic shields to reduce damage, tons of dmg reflects, arcane weaponry enchancements, ect.

    Warriors get a Heal form.
    Combat Medic.
    They heal through decapitating there allies.
    "durr. Me heal. Your arm hurt? Me fix. Me smart"
    *warrior swings sword at the victim... patient, and removes there arm. Effectively curing the injured person.*
    "Durr. Me heal! you got headache?"
    *Decapitates said person*
    "all cured!"

    Rogues? My bet is since they can already do every role, they'll get a new one that hasn't been in any mmo yet.
    Extreme - Profestional Cheff.
    They cook curry so spicy, they can fling it at the enemies for insane heat damage.
    They can cook pies so tasty, there allies are healed, buffed.
    They can also cook so food so awesome, the enemies are lulled to sleep.
    And if they win the iron chef contest?
    They can litterally beat the game.
    Everyone will see
    *GAME OVER*
    Except for the iron cheff winner they'll get
    *YOU ARE WINNER!*

    My guess...

    Mages: Melee DPS
    Cleric: Ranged DPS
    Rogue: Support or Tank
    Warrior: Support or Ranged DPS

    My guess.........either a Melee DPS role or a Tank role.



    If it is a Tank role then it sounds like the intent is to give players the opportunity to play all roles within every class.
    So my guess for other classes in this case would be:
    Rogue - Healer (Monk?)
    Warrior - Healer
    Cleric - Support. Rift already has DPS Support (Archon) and Heal Support (Bard) so maybe Tank Support. Maybe a Tank role that increases/improves tanking abilities.


    If a Melee DPS role then it sounds like the intent is to create new play styles without creating new roles.
    So my guess for other classes in this case would be:
    Warrior - Ranged DPS
    Cleric - Justicar is a Tank with Heals so maybe a Tank with more focus on DPS that would offer synergy with their DPS Souls for increased DPS across their Souls.
    Rogue - Tank with healing abilities

    Looking at those pics I really can't lean one way or another more than before. Mages can still tank with a 2H weapon!(optimism)

    A mage tank with shield that reflect damage back at attackers to assist with threat would be interesting. Mages may have probs holding agro on ranged mobs but a high threat DoT cast on them could possibly solve that problem unless DPS were unloading on it. AoE threat would be easily handled with spells geared for that or even instant spells that shoot in a cone for cleaving in front of the mage (2h weapon usage here?). Even more curious is whether it would use the DPS mage souls for the 2nd or 3rd option or if its meant to be used with the chloro or archon soul.

    It's all about trolling, I highly doubt it's going to be a melee soul or any other archetype with weapons which look like those posted on forum.

    What's more, I bet all of my plat, that I HAVE ALREADY SEEN THOSE PICS in another mmo. Looking freaking familiar, anyway, can't remember where I've seen it.

    Sorry guys, but... do you believe in every crap you see on the internet?
