    There are dozens of other things that I would prefer to see in the game (new zones, new dungeons, new *fun* zone events, interactive dimension items, ...). A new calling is absolutely unnecessary.
    New zones, new dungeons, and new zone events all would take different folks than the people who are working on the new calling. There's a dozen or more different skill sets on the team, a guy who works in systems rarely focuses on content and vice versa.

    On a unrelated note, a new race is many orders of magnitude more work than a new calling. The animations especially are absolutely brutal in their requirements. And if you do a race, do you make it Guardian or Defiant? or do you make it a choice for both? Or do you make another new race to matc (and double the work)?

    We're definitely trying for this year. The schedule is ambitious, but the RIFT team is very very capable.

    I want to play......I mean test it NOW :P

    Testing a new calling sounds quite more interesting than a single soul...a lot more space for changes/tuning

    So Ocho, appreciate you jumping on the thread. Do you know who is actually working on this calling?

    More than one dev will be involved in the end I'm sure. Ultimately they'll announce who is publicly the point of contact at the appropriate time.

    Why put in a new calling?
    Every class can already do everything. I'm still fairly new to the game, but it seems pointless to put a new calling in at this point?

    Maybe they'll finally release some new souls in this calling that can take advantage of the games permastealth code. I've always thought it ridiculous they went through all the trouble of making good stealth code that can only be used by rogues. And no Light Refraction was never a good use of the code outside of the Rogue and has gone less used by Warriors than a quadriplegics treadmill.

    I imagine the price of those instant 60 pots will jump when the calling is finally released, for those who still have it.

    Ah, thanks for the lesson on how skill sets work in software development. Nevertheless as a customer I'm not really interested in how you can make the optimum use of the devs you have - as a customer I want to have a fun product. And content is far more important to me than a new calling (that will do exactly the same things as the four existing ones already do). So my point still stands. Not that you need to care about it, I'm sure the new calling will be as OP as overpriced and net you some really big bucks (plus tons of QQ on the forums that will be lots of fun to follow )

    Does the schedule come with fries? Wait...

    <Check notes>

    Sorry, old Garfield joke.

    Anyway, I hope this new calling really knocks some socks off, because right now my guild has only 15 active members left.

    But that's my short two cents.

    Would rather have the broken existing souls fixed rather than a new calling. Every current calling currently has more than 1 broken soul that is little utilized or can only be utilized in a hybrid. (Archon, Tact, etc) Also Itemization - either there will have to be a new stat set up or you're going to create itemization issues with AP\SP by creating a new calling that uses one or the other (unless it uses both), which will lead to a re-balance in the RNG drops screwing over the two callings that do not use the same stats.

    I'd rather the time be spent fixing the existing callings.

    Because while every class can fill every different role in a group, a new Calling could do it in new, fun ways. We currently have the four major archetypes represented - Warrior, Mage, Cleric, and Rogue - so the question is, what Calling could they add that would be fundamentally different than these Archetypes, so as to make it worth adding to the game? I'm thinking some sort of Engineering class, with Souls that refine it down to more specific regimens (Artillary, Robotics, Mechpilot, etc, etc).
