You will not need to use spoiler tags for off-topic posts, including borderline content, memes, macros, etc. Reputation System You will not use the reputation system in a way that shows bias towards specific members. Repeat Offenders We will no longer be using the warning point system. Instead, temporary bans will be issued to repeat offenders. The decision to ban and the length of the ban will be at the moderators’ discretion. Ban Appeals If you feel you were wrongly banned or that you have changed your ways, you can email me through the Dojo’s contact system (found on my profile underneath “Contact Information”). Your appeal will be discussed by the Dojo staff members before a decision is made. Please note, creating additional accounts (“sockpuppets”) to circumvent a Dojo ban will result in a longer ban of the original account and permanent bans of the additional accounts.

Title says it all.

I really like PvP so with the latest round of nerfs I'm back to being a Female Jin Assassin named Antumbra (I have also been feeling very sneaky lately).

I will have a male Lyn Blade Master and female Gon Kung-Fu-Master named Felidae and Tigress/Empress as my alts.

So I ask you all. Who will your main be, who will your alts be, and what classes will they be? Edited by Spirits of Vengeance

[color="#FF8C00"]My main will be a [color="#FFFF00"]Kun[/color] [color="#00BFFF"]Force master[/color], mainly becus I prefer ranged classes.
And the Summoner is the [u]least[/u] possible class I gona play, that 1 is similar like the classic "hunter" class.
Damage on a distance and controling the pet movements and attacks.

And As ALT I think a [color="#DDA0DD"]Assasin[/color]. Why?, watched to much Naruto :big_smile: [/color]

Main's gonna be a Female Lyn Summoner, named either Eweca or Ryang Huan-Yong, depending on what's taken and if Ryang Huan-Yong will even fit.

Alt will be Male Lyn Blade Master named Ladeca or Jung-Su.

Second Alt will be Female Lyn Force Master named Palala or Su-Min Byeong.

each account will have 5 character slots. just perfect for me.
my mains will be the 2 classes that appeared in B&S's very first trailer. KFM and Blade. these 2 classes are really fun for me.
my alts will be the 3 classes introduced in the second trailer. Destroyer, FM and Ass. these 3 classes interest me, just not as much as KFM and blade, i'll play them for fun, and for knowledge's sake.
the 2 most recent classes to appear i won't play. summoner is far too boring for me, and swordmaster is far too similar to 2 already EXISTING classes that i already decided to play.

I do like concepts of KFM, BM and Destro. Most fun seems to be KFM so probably it going to be my main. But also I have doubt about balance in game, so it will affect my final decision with one going to be main and rest just alts. And I have strange feeling ability to block just single skill is far too low for melee class in game with that spam of skills... Edited by Zenek

So SuMin Byeong will. I might just use Palala, Ladeca and Eweca just for uniformity, then.

Also dude the red text startled me, you way overuse that.

Kun Force Master
Jin Blade Master
Jin Assassin

I guess all of these are subject to change based on whatever the 8th class ends up being.

Gon Female Kung Fu Master as my main just because this class seems like alot of fun, never played a game where the class uses hes fists to fight, and really to me Kung Fu Master represents the martial arts style of the game very well.For my alts i will be going for Male Lyn Force Masters, just because i do not like the Kun and the way they look, Jin Female Assassin, i think i would rather go with the female cause the male characters to me look to feminine, I will also be making a Female Blade Master, again to me the male looks to feminine,and finally Male Lyn Blade Master.I will not be making my alts in this particular order.

P.S. I might change my mind on choosing female for the Jin if the character customization allows me to change that. Edited by Sake

I know my main will be a female KFM. I originally wanted a Jin but now I might go with a Jin-looking Gon. My alt will be a male KFM. Gon of course~

My last alt will be a male Lyn BM. :3

Main will be a male Lyn blademaster named on of my irl nicknames, Alts will be a Kung fu master and an assassin I hope to turn into a gunmaster later. Too bad they scrapped the Jin FM concept cause I would get that instead of the kung fu master. I plan to use the character customation to it's fullest, and now some people should realize what I'm going for.

Female Gon Kung Fu Master as my first toon.

Boobs + booty + beatdowns = :confident:


I haven't decided between destroyer or assassin as my alt yet, I like playing both, but KFM playstyle is just so much more fun than any of the others.

[color="#FF8C00"]My gues is, they first launch the game in EU/NA.
And about half year later they start with teasing trailers for the new class.
And then 3/4 year after the release they show the new one. :confident: [/color]

At first I was thinking of going Assassin, but now I'm leaning towards Kung Fu Master, and a Gunfu Master will takenumber 1 spot if it ever becomes an option.

Have been planning to play a Jin Kung-fu master since I saw the first video of a KFM,
after trying assassin abit I believe I'll have to roll one as my 1st alt after that probably a Destroyer.
(I will have to instantly make a Summoner name her Alice and get the black cat and name is Socrates)
