Hey guys !
I've had an idea today for a class that would be cool to see added so I thought I might share it here.
The concept would be some kind of dark rogue with leather-y armor and maybe some metal plates here and there (maybe like a combat plague doctor ?) that would use a crossbow and corrosive and poisonous flasks.
I've wanted another class that wasn't Pyromancer who could rely on DoTs, and except Ninja or Pirate (which are very viable for anything, really), there's not many classes who inflict poison (and none for disease) status.
Also, there aren't many ranged classes using Pierce as their default damage except Rogue and, well, Ranger (of course), so a crossbow would be really cool. I thought a crossbow-wielding warrior of death spreading disease and corruption wherever it goes would sound like a nice concept. I've also always wanted a class that would use crossbows, and since TimeKiller isn't avalaible anymore, there's no way I can use crossbows as an actual weapon for a class.
I also thought of a nice ability inspired by the new "Warmonger" character in the game "For Honor", where it has those "Blade of Corruption" and "Corruption Blast" abilities where they corrupt one or multiple target and create a zone around them, where if their allies enters this zone, both of them will take damage over time. We could emulate that by creating an ability that would cause a debuff or a DoT when you are fighting multiple enemies.
So yeah, that's pretty much what I thought about during my lunch break at work. Feel free to add more stuff to it if you find the idea appealing, and otherwise, tell me why you don't.
Now you're thinking with Rifts !
Paladin Toilet Paper is honestly awesome.
