I were thinking that there should be classes that are combinations of classes. Like Wizard and Elf -> Elf Wizard (better name?) Or Healer and Adventurer -> Holy Adventurer (better name?) And like that. What do you think about it?

No, I don't think we should have those, it ruins the uniqueness of every class.
I think that what we should focus on the most (class-wise) is making brand new classes with their very own abilities.

Alright, no combining classes. But I had this idea from Paladin. It is a combination of Soldier and Healer, ya know...

My poor paladin Crying or Very sad

All alone and nobody likes him...


Anyways he was one of my older creations. And he is the only dark skinned now. So now as he is in the game, there is no reason to take him out of there again Razz But that doesn't mean we should make more hybrid classes.

... except that is what I am doing. The Archaeologist would be some kind of combination between gnome and rogue. But he would still have it's own unique Indiana Jones treasure hunter theme.

Take Zombor too for example, he is a soldier, with extra special powers (Fast attack speed, life steal, immune to kurses, immune to daze, grogs poison etc.). His drawback is that he cannot wear armour, he is dead and cannot be Healed by holy magic.

No one said you can't.
You can make what you want, even if people disagree with you, Egoboo is open source, after all.

I know, but it just feels like a waste of time if I make something that nobody likes, but, I combine some classes...

As always, I think that the "classes" should all be skill based and you should be able to choose whatever skin you want...

This "class uniqueness" thing is very overblown.

Heh, my first character that I completed Egoboo with was also a paladin. But as bgbirdsey suggests, there are many ways of dealing with the class system. One likes a more free skill system while the other likes a class based system. I myself am pretty happy with the way it is now, even though there should be a way to add and gain new skills with level ups (adventurer should be able to learn jousting if he puts some sort of points in it).

All the classes will still need re-balancing anyways when the game is more or less finished (And when we get to see how they work together in teamplay).

If there was one more hybrid class that would be interesting to see, it would be the Mystic. An arcane and divine spell caster combined. But weak in almost everything else.
