Will there be a ranged male class that isn't Lyn?

46 posts in this topic

I love playing ranged classes and I hate playing small character models. (I don't care for the supposed pvp advantage) I like looking like at least an average height guy.

Why can't there be a Jin force master?

Will they release more classes like bowman/gunner that will allow this? Though I really like dark mages though, don't know if something like that would happen.

There's still 1 class left, we're all predicting it will be a ranged class. Gunmaster or something like a Geomancer. My wish is that they start breaking these class/race limitations and start adapting all classes for all races.

2 handed long swords for Gons would look amazing.

I don't think that they will really do only 8 classes just because they don't appear to be any class planning, is more like they simply put the class that they or we want when they want.

This happen because in this game, the class balance is not like the most current MMORPGs like AION, L2, WOW... Where the classes are projected to be combined together. Is more like old PC RPGs like Diablo 1 and 2, MU and others where the classes are autonomous. So they simply can launch any class that they want when they want and this will not make too much impact to game balance.

Since the launch of the Assassin, they appears to simply hear the asks of the community and do a new class. This happened with the Summoner and with Lyn BM and probably will be done with the next one.

So, probably the next class will be a Gunslinger or some thing like it and after it maybe an eastern monk like a kekaishi that can make Kekkais, seals and some magics and/or phisical skills.

Both great points. B&S isn't fixed into the 3 class triangle of healer, tank, dps so they can be as creative as they want since all the classes can tank, dps, and they just heal with items.

I can't wait to see with how many classes each race end up getting. Something magical for Gon would be a lot of fun. This is why B&S is great, unlimited potential and creativity. The bad thing is that we have to wait for the classes :laugh: Waiting for mortal humans isn't always welcomed lol

[font="Comic Sans MS"][color="#00BFFF"]In the old trailers, Gon introduced the FM class, and Jin was also able to be FM. Right now, the traitor of your school is a Male Jin FM, so iunno what Team Bloodlust is up to.[/color][/font]

Maybe they want to do the same thing that they done with de Lyns BMs. A class variant.

Only the time will show.

I love playing male mages in games, love making the intelligent strategist type character (like zhuge liang inspired), I really hope they removed some class restrictions, or add more exciting male mage clases. (FM is great but kinda standard mage), maybe a darker mage like a necromancer, warlock, or even even more unconventional asian fantasy magic users.

I perfer the game to get gunner and keep it like that...we dont really need to many ranged classes with all of the melee classes running around and Summoner is like a necro..Just make the lyns taller.Also class/race restriction may keep the game diverse and a lyn carrying an axe 5times its size would just be werid :) Edited by LynFeels

All they need to do is add gon/jin force master, and that action alone would appease ALOT of people and they wont need to add classes after the gunner for a very long time.

Oh yeah about the melee classes, if they add more ranged they could make up for it by making a spear using class, would be so badass (yeah i used to play alot of dynasty warriors xD) Edited by Moritsuna

I think the same thing. Make it so Jin can be Force Master and Summoner and I think the game will do great. Go without Jin having these classes, and it may miss the mark on a good size opening crowd. I think there is still a large group of the male player base that just don't want to play female characters in MMOs. There's females who think the same way, but every class appears to have a female option, so less of a worry there.

If they want to put some race restrictions on classes, I can understand that, but Jin seem very much like the race that can be every class.

I think the reason only Lyn get summoner is because of their lore. I personally prefer lore over "hey look you can be this tiny little animal thing and carry around an axe 15 times your size wow also the dragging is a little awkward".

Jin FM would work though, since the one guy is a Jin FM, from what I've heard. Summoner.... no :c Leave the lore intact.

What makes you think Jin and Gon out of curiosity? :3 I'm guessing it's cause they're popular.

[size="1"]But Gons and Jins already have unique classes grumble grumble grumble[/size]

I wonder if each race is planned to have a unique class, or if it's just something people came up with based on the trend :? Edited by Famfrit

GonFM :pokeeyesout: ? please NO. They're supposed to be all about raw strenght... not magical super powers. And if they create jinFM then what would be the point of Kuns?
As some users said before, you can always create a tall badass-looking Lyn with a manly voice, or just hope for a new ranged class. Edited by Phangs

Oh there are =D one is in the fireBeast dungeon and other 2 in... other dungeon. There are also archers and gunners too... but i hope they stay just like that: NPCs.

Or they might just forget about the Lore and make all clases available for all races but that would be atrocious.
I hope the current classes remain untouched. Just my opinion =] Edited by Phangs

I guess I can't imagine Kun and Lyn with guns for some reason. The Kun do need a unique class to which I would yell "Archer!" but I don't know that whole "unique class" thing is unofficial rabble. Gon Force master is also a nice runner up, I know I saw videos of Gon Force Masters somewhere guess they decided to cut them or save them for later. Edited by Spirits of Vengeance
