    Default Figure out a way to incorporate Engineer class in game

    I played many MMOs over the years and the one class that was an all time favorite would be the Engineer class from Warhammer. Having the ability to have stationary turrets for your pets different turrets had single target and AOE damage brought a great dimension to the class. Currently in Rift we can use rifles so this wouldn't be that big of a leap to incorporate with the lore. Possibly under the Saboteur soul. This class was so fun I PVP many days straight. I know a lot of people will come back and say we have a lot of souls in game right now. I would have to agree with that but adding turrets in Saboteur would be a great option for PVP defense and offense. Well there is .02.

    Esoh

    I'd rather it be a seperate calling, with an equivalent in the guardian side (summoner? or something like that which allows them to summon little "flesh turrets")

    maybe trion could make up their own armor (so that every calling has it's own armor) and from there all the souls specialise in different types of tech.

    This reminds me of a suggestion I made for a class in WoW a long time ago... it would have to be pretty heavily modified to work in Rift, but some of the concepts might be useful to apply to an engineer type class... let me see if I can dig it up, brb.

    I can't find the actual thread I posted... which sucks cuz there were like 40 pages of feedback... I posted this before blizzard changed to their new forums, so the old ones must be gone for good : /

    Anyway, I was able to find a copy of the OP on an external HDD. Just copied it over to a google doc so you can read it as well - please feel free to adopt any of the concepts in that suggestion to your own.

    Here it is:

    If you do make a version of this for Rift, you'll probably want to make a new thread so that the actual suggestion is in the first post - if you do that, please send me a PM with the link.

    You want Engineers go play Warhammer Online. Seriously Defiants are Mechanically Inclined not the Guardians who hate Technology and seek to destroy it.

    Now having Guardian or Defiant Exclussive Classes is not a bad idea but remember what game this is.
