Suggestion #1: Sub classes!

Anyone who's posted on this forum has most likely gotten past skull island. However, i have been thinking about the classes. Dont get the wrong idea, the classes we have now are great, but there isn't alot of variety in class choice. So, i want to suggest something im pretty sure i suggested a couple years back,
SUB CLASSES!

Now, if you play a lot of mmorpg's (or roblox) you would know some games( like aeriagame's Aura kingdom)
have an insane amount of classes, which means your not likely to find 1 person who is the exact same as you.
Now, what im suggesting is that for the next update, we add sub class's to each class based on the main class.
Example= witchdocter can become a mage

Pros
  • More character divesity
  • Makes the game easier(depending on class)
  • Gives players more choice then the current system
  • Attracts more players


Cons
  • Hard to code
  • Makes the game confusing to new players




So, to make this easier, i will explain my idea of how this can be implemented, and sub class ideas ( you can post your own ideas down in the comment section)

Here are the terms im going to use to describe each class and sub class:
Extremely low low average high extremely high
(health= 700 -1100) (health= 1000-1500) (health=1800-2100) (health= 2300-2700) (health= 3000-3500)
(damage= 100- 150) (damage= 120-180) (damage=200-250) (damage= 270-300) (damage= 320 -380)




Now that i have defined the terms, i will show you the stats and ideas for sub classes(along with the main class for reference)

note: these are stats for lv 75, the max lv currently, WITHOUT GEAR STATS

Privateer:
Health= average
Damage: average

Healer and Buffer class( heals and gives crew stat boosts)

Shipwright:
Health: high
Damage: low

Healer and AOE(area of affect) class.

Some skills :

Witchdocter:

I think zuto's suggestion has the advantage of being simpler than yours. While creative, it's just too complicated & over done, sorry.

The way we should be able to acquire this is through a quest given to us when we reach lv 40,

say something like a promotion quest, but for you.

here's how it would go.

you lv up to lv 40

Avery: come back to skull island pirate! i thinks it time for you to try a different way of fighting

you head to skull island, avery gives you a quest(im running out of words i can type)

after you complete the quest, avery gives you an option of 2 sub classes to choose from, or you can stay as your own class.

also, you keep all skills you learned from you original class trainers.

NOW YOU CAN POST

I believe 2 sub classes for each class would be a good idea and would shake things up a bit, they shouldn't be unlocked straight away though because it's too much for a new player to properly grasp.

that makes me a little bit mad, but thats just me.

anyway, i understand what your saying, but i have an advantage over his/her post: my class ideas are original( and take references from anime and video games)

would you want to be a "hidden blade" class? no, because that sounds more like a weapon idea than a class.

a better sub class for swashbuckler's would be a adventurer, because an adventurer is a profession, which is what a class is, a profession(such as boxing) that in video games, is what your character is.

im sorry if this sounds like a rant, im not really used to making constructive arguments for something i disagree with(outside of school)

You can learn to juggle. You can learn to ride a unicycle. Juggling on a unicycle takes more skill than either alone, but learning to juggle on a unicycle while breathing fire?
I'd like to see that.

This is just a real life example of what you guys are trying to accomplish for our pirates.

I'm sorry you disliked my critique of your idea - believe me, it's not personal. I wouldn't mind being a "hidden blade" since this is what I am at the moment; so don't make that assumption for me. I also like the idea of being a "clever alchemist".
Consider this a way to experience and respond to constructive critiquing, that way you get to expand on your ideas, maybe change our minds ( or even your own. )

I would not mind "Engineer" being a Privateer subclass.
