We are talking player classes - A vampire is a player class - like a berserker/bioengineer combo - a revenant is like a defenderAre we talking enemies? NPC? Or player characters?
I have always been partial to werewolves.
Or worse... "Fanfiction Author", runs around the arena complaining about the tropes used in the game, how enemies shouldn't act how they do because "THAT'S NOT ACCURATE TO THE MYTHOLOGY", etc.It would be funny to have all those classes and then a class "Goth," which is just a bitchy teenager who is into Panic! At The Disco, keeps complaining about conformists, claims to be an expert on all things undead, but pisses their pants and runs away once actually confronted with monsters IRL.
It could be an April fool's content update
How about a Liche and something like this:Can I ask a wizard class? An arcane magic user that can either become a summoner to raise and command an army of minions or an articifer to create various types of golems depending on what the player is aiming at; power, defense, balance.
And please if you decide on a wizard class don't make them so awfully weak as they usually are on MMORPGS compared to other classes. Of course, a warrior is always going to be physically stronger than a wizard (except maybe this guy) but a wizard should have magic and/or artifacts to compensate that in the same way warriors improve their defenses with magic armor and weapons. I don't know why wizards are always the weakest class, perhaps only second to bards.
I usually like magic-users/long range attack characters so please make a badass option with those features.
And in case you don't think classic wizards can be lovecraftian enough, this example may change your mind.
There are multiple types of undead in different parts of the world but one class of undead that would be interesting to see be made is a Jiang-Shi from Chinese mythology. If keeping in line with traditional Chinese mythology they would have high health and defense as Jiang-Shi are considered invincible. But they’re slow because they can only hop around. I guess Jiang-Shi would make a perfect tank class.
These are really cool suggestions - thank you. The realm of the undead is vast and we have been looking into various cultures for inspiration and classes. I really like the suggestion of Yuki-onna and although upon release we are focusing on Gothic traditions, we do plan on opening things up beyond this of course!Another possible spell caster class could be the Japanese Yuki-onna. Technically translated as “snow woman” but are considered to be women who died in a blizzard and can manipulate ice and snow. Would be fun to play as a cold hearted killer who could freeze people or slow them down.
They wouldn't even have to fully fly imo. Gargs like floating ghost type characters could easily have some kind of "able to stand in the fire, because they don't actually stand" mechanic going on. Because I mean... Don't stand in the fire.GARGOYLES! And other flying types. How cool would that be, an actual flying character class in a world of games that mostly force you to stay on the ground because flying over them would break them.
