Support Jobs….

Support Classes…I miss playing one. If I am not mistaken EQ had them, FFXI had them, why do a lot of MMOS drop them?

1.) Probably cause they would not do well in a PVP setting?
2.) Game mechanics are not designed with a support slot in mind.

But there is something said to have a good support class.

In FFXI, i miss being the Bard – you really had to know the range on your songs and how to hit approp party memebers with approp spells. Also at time know when to heal heal with /whm subjob, or pull mobs with /nin.

Tanks – depending on your tank for the group – you could get double Mage’s Balled for the Paladin tank. Or Attack song and acc song for a ninja tank. Attack song x2 or attack and acc song for DPS. Magic DPS/Healers would get Mage’s Ballad. Sleeping adds as needed.

Ahhh it was always something to do.

Makes me sad there is nothing in WoW for such a role. Having a bard to fill in buffs a raid maybe missing. Helping out the healer in a time of need, and keepin mobs CC’d.

/random post is random!

    The original support classes in WoW were the Shaman and Paladin. They changed over the life of the game, but they were there once!

        The shaman’s totems and the paladin’s blessings/hands/auras. That is why each faction only had one. They were there to be support classes with buffs.

    Almost everything they have done in the name of PVP balance I have not liked. Homogenized classes are boring.

      I still have never understood why they couldn’t have game mechanics act differently based on whether you were flagged for PvP or not. They already do it for things like Polymorph duration. I sometimes wonder if there is a group of developers at Blizz that work on PvE always scorning those PvP developers from across the lunch room.
