Necromancer Archetype

Recommended Posts

I know this isn't happening, but I wanted it really bad when the Archetypes were still being dropped that I just decided to post it here for fun. Note: I'm 99.9% sure this will never happen as they're done dropping the Archetypes, this is just for fun because I was holding it in the whole time. Yep.

 

Necromancer: I'll End All Your Pain

 

Ranged DPS (Magic)

 

 

Strength: 1/4

Dexterity: 3/4

Intellect: 3/4

Spirit: 2/4

 

Main Weapon: Scythe (bet you didn't see that coming -sarcasm-!)

 

Backstory:

 

Just a step closer please. I'm not a killer, I'm only trying to relieve your of your mortal life. The others, the call me evil. A Devil, possibly the Root of Evil itself, but I know they're wrong. After all, the dead chose me. I'm their Reaping Saint, the one who can end all your suffering. Are you living a terrible life? Are you sick? Do you need someone to help end all your pain? I've come.

 

You could call me the Grim Reaper, I am the one who ends all the suffering. I'm not evil, I only want to help you pass to the next life in peace. But when I help you to the next life, you owe me a favor. You shall serve me temporarily, only to repay your debt to me. You shall provide me aid in battle, fight by my side for a while, but it will all end after that very quickly.

 

I'll release you after that though, but only because I can't bare the pain of using you as a slave. So you can leave after that. But remember, the next life may be Heaven or Hell, but that's your choice. So come closer little one, let me end your pain. I'll End All Your Pain.

 

---

 

Yeah that's basically it. I always like the Necromancer with a Scythe class so I just wanted to see one here. I know it's not happening but that's okay as long as the Frostweaver has the Kusarigama that I've seen in the female concept art. Anyway's thanks.

From exotic races thread.

Thralls that resisted the hunger long enough to break its enchantment over them, to then ascend into the Eternal Kingdom.

archetype: Warlock/Witch

Sub classes: Feral Warlock/Witch(Melee DPS), Necromancer(Specialist) , and Shade(Magic DPS)

Also ACE plans to add more archetypes after the game is fully out.

Necromancers can be kinda cool, but their kinda low on my preferences, personally.

 

The theme of undead and stuff feels like it belongs to the Hunger, kind of like Wights and White Walkers in Game of Thrones... but whose to say, I'm sure they could make a Necromancer.

 

It would at least be better than two knights XD

I think the druid is already much like a necromancer. The backstory sounds pretty gothic and apparently she has some thing with skulls going on. You only have to make her a vampire, dress her in black and get rid of that Poison Ivy hairdo, and you’re done.

And since thralls are ghosts everybody already kind of is a necromancer.

I think with how they are in the 15-20 ability ballpark right now a necromancer could easily be its own archetype...

 

The main problem I see with making necromancer type stuff is that eventually china will come into consideration in this game... and iirc it has fairly strong censoring towards things depicting death/undead type stuff in certain ways. 

 

Also in voxel environments at least with some games so far, developing good AI stuff has been a pretty big challenge, so the sorta minion master type necromancer class might come with some headaches.

 

Overall I do thing necromancers are a staple as far as core classes you should find in fantasy mmorpgs.. So despite some of the headaches that may come with it, I hope they run with it.

Wowowowow. I never knew that! I mean, look at our current stretchgoal. We need to have a strong consideration for all of our audience. We don't want them getting in trouble for putting in a necromancer (although it would be cool but a little scary). Which is another thought; what if it's someone's trigger is to see magic or its against their beliefs. I mean, not only are they super scary by raising dead things but magic could be considered evil. This is not a good recipe for an amazing gaming community for all audiences.

It's ok Mr. Primal.  I think Mr. Todd has all the scary stuffz under control.  Remember, he made W101 so he knows how to do the magic and death thingys and NOT make them scary at all.  :)   Also, KI launched in the Asian market in 2012 so I am sure all the stuffz not allowed there are all ready known and being taken care of.  The best team has been collected to make the very best all community inclusive game ever!


Maybe it not about the happy ending. Maybe it's about the story.

Countries like China just get altered version of the content, many international games are designed with variations of blood color and character appearance based on their laws, and production of those assets are done with their consumer support. It doesn't have to limit what we get in the US.

I would love a Necromancer Archtype/Discipline.

Rarely do I play one of which I didn't enjoy.  It's just so cool to resurrect the dead.  I tend to do that a lot in Skyrim.

I am still not convinced and this is a very touchy subject. Not sure if the CF forums are the proper place to discuss high charged subjects such as death, blood, and magick.

Primal, please be careful about using "magick" as that has a very specific meaning in the wiccan/pagan community, and you don't want to be guilty of cultural appropriation even by accident! It's not the same thing as fantasy magic e.g. fireballs and lightning bolts that we see in gaming and Harry Potter (copyright JK Rowling, hope that doesn't infringe)

Well those 4 zombies are the zombies we see as time passes, spring to winter.

 

My assumption for the asian market is that the skin just gets more gaunt and color changes. The problem they have had with many undead in games is the bones. WoW had to remove all the bone protrusions from the forsaken player race (yet full skelitons were completely fine with the bone knights...I don't understand that) to the point the forsaken just looked like bulemic people with bad posture. This being the most well documented change to a western MMO for asian audiences. China also had changes to other graphics in WoW, Naga were made to look more human, all undead in the game...every single enemy...either had to have all bone protrusions removed or be turned completely skelital. 

 

By contrast, this is why GW2 went the direction they did for necromancer pets. They aren't remotely human looking thus aren't a problem for asian audiences. 

 

It's a long held taboo, and they have more than one type of zombie in their legends and myths. They talk about them the same way western people talk about angels/demons (assuming religious), as if they are entities that are always here interacting with humans. It is asian tradition for cremation or when you bury the dead to nail them into the coffin so if they reanimate they cannot move, now I'm not sure if this is still done in any huge numbers but it was incredibly common even at the point of the industrial period of Japan and China. Their belief is that if you are buried without the rights and rituals and at the least put into a coffin you will turn into a monster.
