    Default New Mage Class: Blood Mage

    It'd be cool if they add in Blood Mage class. Using blood/hp instead of mana.

    That'd be awesome.

    Almost like a necromancer like concept from Guild Wars, only it would rely purely on hp / blood magic.

    You've thought this all the way through huh? No mention of how this (mana/blood) is balanced, what role this class fills, why it's needed, where you stole the idea from, what this class even does... nope.. just nothing at all.

    -sigh

    Necro and Warlock both have spells that damage themselves to serve a purpose (Heal others, restore mana, etc).

    I agree with OP because clearly 8 unique types of mage aren't enough.

    As a necro I already damage myself to heal the target for like 4x the amount damaged. On top of that it gives +charge so while healing an ally in a dungeon or pvp you can then soul purge to do damage to a target and heal yourself back up.

    That's been very useful in dungeons when the healer gets aggrod before the tank can grab it. Put pet on the mob, heal the cleric, tank grabs it, heal up from the damage done healing the cleric. Happy cleric.

    Let's focus on making sure the current mage souls come in as balanced as possible before adding more to the mix.

    mmmk?

    Why is everyone offering up new class ideas? Rift has a diverse make-your-own-class system where you can combine spells from a variety of classes to create what you want. Give them some credit. Also, health sacrificing already exists.

    Good old Vanguard, such wasted potential. Part of the reason I am coming to Rift is because the Chloromancer captures the feel of the Blood Mage playstyle and improves upon it in many ways.

    Naw, you could think of a new soul for 1 or 2 classes but then you'd need a soul for the rest, and they'd just be thrown together and never be much good ><

    I prefer the mechanic of VG Bloodmage, but the Chloro is pretty nice too.

    This.

    I also liked the Blood Mage, Disciple and Bard in Vanguard.

    ...and /rope.

    Good rudimentary idea, yes.
    Needs alot of work, yes. (basically all healing spells restore mana.. seems .. powerful)
    The dev team is probably a bit pressed with time right now though.

    Maybe later new souls can be implemented.
