#1024 new change

Rebalance classes

Reported by: magnate Owned by:
Milestone: v4 Keywords: player,interesting


Connected to #317 is the issue of balancing other classes with rangers. #987 should help warriors, and here are a couple of ideas from Oook for other classes:

Rogues should get extra shots with slings, like rangers do with bows.

Magi and priests should get either two spells/turn or two device uses/turn at cl25 or 30. (i.e. these actions take 50 energy rather than 100). This is quite radical, and leads us towards the possibility of different casting times for different spells, affected by level and/or stats etc. etc. Just a thought.

Why don't we add a few more races and classes, before we rebalance everthing. Some of the other variants like Zangband have a number of promising candidates.

Suggestion from Ooook: change rangers' extra shots to extra might. A very slight nerf which might help with #317 too.

Looking at KZK's comment, I can already think of two candidates from ZAngband for new races: Barbarians (change to Easterlings?) and Nibelungs (change to Petty-Dwarves). Classes, though...I could see a place for a class that minors in divine the same way rogues minor in arcane. Maybe templated in theme upon the avenger from D&D 4.0. The question becomes whether there's a place for anything ELSE, without inaugurating new spellbook schools.
