I want to propose to rework “job” classes (appraiser, pardoneer, alchemist, squire, enchanter and templar (yes, templar too. It can’t put a shop but currently it feels similar to them (i think))) making them a good classes on some roll by adding some of their current skills to the “common skills” or on “rest mode” skill slots (or both).
This would make them able to have new usefull skills instead of some of the current ones.
In the case of the alchemist for example, “dig” skill could be added to common skills while tincturing, magnum opus, item awakening and gem roasting could be added to the rest mode skill slots. The rest of the skills (alchemistic missile and combustion) should be reworked anyway i think. It could become a non-property magic class that makes a good combo with sage or a fire property magic class (just an idea having in mind the current property of alchemist attack skills).
About the templar, i want to propose to rework ALL the skills… there are a lot of better options for this class than the current one:
Templar could be reworked and added to the cleric tree class making it have good sinergy with paladin and crusader (for example), or rework crussader and paladin and make them be added to the swordsman tree class (as i think that it should be).
I think that it should stop to be a class with more influence on GTW than the other classes. It makes it hard to be balanced making it or too much powerful or too much useless.
Moreover, I think that Templar should continue using sword and shield as main weapons.
Futhermore, i want to propose to put again the squire on swordsman classes to make them able to have a “job” class on the tree class too (and i said that knowing that the scout tree class continue needing more classes).
This idea would make “job” classes like a good idea to have on the first character (currently its a bad idea because usually they make useless the build class (there are some exceptions but you know what i mean)) in addition to increase the number of usefull build classes (more variety).
I hope you like the idea!!
