Sounds awesome :)
This is more than likely my next incarnation in an MMORPG. I may change my mind...but I've already Rangered it for 7 years, Main-Tanked it for 8 years, and done Druids in between. Would really like to play the "control" class for a change.
Been dabbling in Classic EQ1 on the Project 1999 server past few days....in the Pantheon Uprising guild. Getting my feet wet. This sounds awesome especially the Beguiler and the "explosions" with channeled energy into other mezzed mobs...and if not...wiping the group due to backfire =P
Oh oh! Liiiiiiike! :)
Whoa... this is really cool! I wonder if Ogre's can be enchanters. lol
Loved my enchanter in EQ1. Stopping trains in their tracks where any normal group would be wiped was my favorite. I was always wanted in every group. It was great fun. I also loved the thrill of moving deep into dungeons solo using combinations of invisibility, invisibility to undead, and mes with memory wipe for those pesky mobs with see invisibility. Great fun.
I hope they can recreate and expand on that magic with the technology of today.
This description makes me really want to play an enchanter for the first time... ever.
TW: What is the Project 1999 server? Sounds really interesting while we wait. Please advise and thanks!
SOOOO excited! Was an enchanter in EQ and loved it! Groups needed you! This means that I can resurrect the, " *** is mesmerized by my charm; you break it, you bought it" hot key! My bard-Feos Swansong will have to wait...Nycti's bringing sexy back. (insert dance)
Jason, I too loved my enchanter in EQ. I remember playing an entire weekend (no sleep) at KC and never hurting for a group longer than a few minutes.
Those bad pulls with multiple mobs meant I had to be quick on my feet.
So excited for this!
Oh wow. As one of my staples, I wouldn't know which path to choose. Phantasmist seems like it'd take more work to play well - going on the fact they have to risk charming mobs - so I think I may be leaning on that. Now all I need is the fox race darn it! My main was a Raki Psionicist in VG and that was some of the funnest times I've spent within an MMO.
I am reminded of the Bonedancer from DAoC when I think about the Phantasmist specialization above. <3 Bonedancers
Absolutely love the fact that the two specializations are truly unique in what they specialize in doing. This brings back the awesomeness of unique class abilities.
I wonder if there will be more to the specializations than skills/spells - like the cleric specializations allowing different armors/ weapons ect.
Anyway im already a huge fan of the beguiler and think I have found my class.
You Just made my wife a very very happy lady....being that she is due our first child in a couple of months, THANK YOU lol....now lets keep up the good work and get this thing made!!
What excites me most about this class is not the class itself, but the presence of the class in the line up and what it implies about the combat. Many MMOs today have crowd control abilities, but "controller" classes get left by the wayside in most MMOs, because combat happens so fast and so easy that there's no point mezzing anything. Why would you mez when you can just kill it. Death is the best form of crowd control, after all.
But after EQ and Vanguard, we know that Brad doesn't make games with mobs that are faceroll-easy. The presence of this class indicates that crowd control -will- be a necessary part of Pantheon combat. And if crowd control is a necessary part of Pantheon combat, that then implies that each enemy will be individually more dangerous (otherwise we wouldn't need to mez them).
p.s. @Tayna Stinson - I'll see you on the battlefield with my matching macro of "Taunting %t twice to break mez. You hit it before me, you tank it." ;)
Can. Not. Wait.
The funny thing is, I was cleaning my teeth last night (!) and thinking about how I was enjoying my relatively new Enchantress in EQ! How sad is that! :D
This is without a doubt what I will be playing if Bard isn't in at launch!
I'm almost in happy tears over here
I need both - I'm in love with this
OMG GIMME !
You guys better be satisfied with the fact that you're making it increasingly difficult to settle on one main character class... (frustrating sigh).
Mind control....muhahaha! :P Sorry couldn't resist :D
Bad Canadina! Behave!
you will do...what i say...when i say....BACK TO THE FRONT!
The team has been so creative with these classes that even I am excited to play certain classes that I never really considered before. As the lore writer, the class team has given me great ideas to work with as we expand the fiction behind classes.
when's alpha being, need a chanter hit.
Since Revenant race has no healer class's and are faithless and more magic based, might an enchanter be able to act as a healer class for the undead
Definatly will be my first class... I played one in EQ she will be reborn in Pantheon!
