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!
Finally got Open Beta to install…only took a few hours…once it was done it took like 1 hr to play…damn betas.
Anyways only got to play for about an hour. The charater creation is nice. Just enough to make me happy, but not so much (*cough* Aion) to make it overwhelming.
Made a Seeker of the Sun Miqo’te Pugilist…punching things to death ftwmfw.
Bleh as with beta…things are laggy, not graphically, rather poss UI. Seems ok for now….graphics are amazing. But graphics does not make a game.
Naughty NPC’s…soliciting PC’s…
More SS when i get home.
