When information first came out for the game, naturally I did as much studying on hte game as possible. Before beta came out, these were the original class colors when I checked the classes out:
Buccaneer: Blue flag with a yellow sword Musketeer: Green gun with a pink red smoke coming out of it Privateer: Blue captain's wheel with a purple red telescope Swashbuckler: Purple dagger with a yellow rose Withdoctor: A purple doll with green pins
These colors were later changed to the icon colors we know currently, buccaneer being red ad blue, musketeer orange and green, privateer being blue and yellow, swashuckler purple and orange, witchdoctor green and purple.
I've been wondering ever since the game first released why did these colors change? To be honest most of them were really cool. If anyone has an answer please post.
