"Charlatan" - Scoundrel class concept

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if the issue of Duelist being the only class associated with Scoundrel has been brought up before but I wanted to entertain the possibility of another class that might balance the skill training to put Scoundrel more on par with the other class-focused training.

Charlatan would offer a different take on support by providing disruption through dramatic flair and speech. 

Resource - Improvisation (Charlatan's Energy)
Weapon - ???

Kit ideas:
Disguise - Appear as an opposing faction member complete with fake name - Toggle (requires resource to upkeep) *Disguises are crafted and appear as whichever disguise is equipped while active.
Mesmerize - Stuns targets in a cone. 
Dumbfound(option A: chain of Mesmerize)  - Increase resource cost of single target 
Embarrass(option B: chain of Mesmerize ) -  Exposes any targets still under the effects of Mesmerize's stun
Chide- Interrupt an ability, if target is exposed increase cooldowns significantly
Boast - Increase resolve of allies in the area, but increases damage taken by 5% ("Cocky" debuff, stacks up to 2x)
Improvise- Perform an unexpected trick with mixed results, gaining one of three effects per attempt: Amuse-target's damage reduced 10%, Infuriate-target takes and deals 5% increased damage, Confuse-target cooldowns increased.
Doublespeak- The next class ability you use can be cast again immediately afterwards.


Encore- (Area-of-effect on caster)Incite a rousing encore that bolsters groups resolve , and provide allies with a damage shield for x amount every y seconds for z duration. Grant temporary immunity to the Charlatan. When enemies hit allies affected by Encore, they gain a stacking debuff lowering their resolve (Boos, stack up to 3x)

todd has talked about wanting to make a pure 'bard' class possibly after launch to even out that scoudrel slot [with the current 'bard' discipline runestone being renamed 'minstrel']
