About Me

  1. Something to contribute in groups without having to invest in attacking skills. Make it so only the Artisan can use his own land mines/grenades. They would scale with his crafting ability.
  2. Every class should be able to craft something unique to their class to have something to play with on the market. But.. we don't want to make Artisans useless either. So here is an idea where each class can craft something to sell on the market. Soldier: As skilled fighters they can train those capsule pets, which fights with you for a short time, into stronger versions and longer durations. Because these things are still a consumable it will be an ongoing business for Soldiers. Hawker: As adventurer's Hawkers know every square inch of a map. Hawker's can craft Teleport Scrolls of every map in the game. Some of these aren't even for sale at the scroll vendors, so Hawkers will have an ongoing business with this. Muse: As the magic wielders of the game Muses surely knows their magic. They can craft enchantments to put on weapons. As these enchantments wears off after some time Muses have an ongoing business with these. Dealer: Beside the fact Dealers are already the crafty guys in the game there is something they only can craft. Dealers can craft Armor Kits to temporarily make armor better. As these Armor Kits wears off after some time Dealers have an extra addition to their marketgame with these. Edit: The Soldier and Dealer idea could be swapped if that is better.
  3. Something I've been thinking could be a cool new feature would be to give the classes some more choices when it comes to what weapons they can use. So in other words, imagine a knight being able to use their skills with dual-wield swords. Of course, letting every range or melee class use their skills with every single range/melee weapon available would probably be far too hard to balance and would just end up being kinda silly. But opening up a few more options for what weapons the classes have available to use could give a lot more depth to building your character. There are already a few builds for some classes that somewhat represent this idea, builds like Dex Cleric, Xbow Knight and perhaps even Gun Bourgeois. There might be some tweaking needed with the stat numbers in regards to how much damage and other benefits classes will get from using a different weapon, but since this already exists in the game it might not even be needed. Some examples of my idea: Champs/Knights can use katars/dual-wield weapons/staff Champs can also use 1H+shield Knights can also use 2H Weapon Xbow knights can use launchers Hawkers/raiders can use 1H+shield/staff Katar raiders can also use 2H spear Dual raiders can also use 2H sword Scouts can use guns Dealers/Artisans/Bourgeois can use bows/xbows/wands(+off hand) Muses can use 1H+shield/bows/xbows Clerics can also use katars/dual-wield Mages can also use 2H weapon
  4. Hello, everyone, here's yet another badly-formatted suggestion - this time about mages. So, I got to thinking that mages are all about versatility and choosing your own adventure, so to speak. You could master wind and water, fire and arcane, even water and fire. Yet, when it comes to defense mages have one thing: Fortified Mana Shield. Don't get me wrong, this mana shield is strong as heck in most circumstances but it's a bit one note - and that's a little weird for a class as interesting as mages. So, I'll be suggesting elemental defenses for mages. Others have talked about third classes, multiclassing, necromancers, warlocks and whatnot - those ideas have to be raised and addressed properly later, I think. This idea can be put forward right now, maybe for the first release after closed beta. For each element (excluding perhaps Holy) a mage could have a passive in their elemental masteries that provides superior resistance to that same element along with an increased weakness to another element. So, it's not all strawberries and cream. Immolation: A fire mage could thus choose to have +25% increased resistance to fire damage and take 5% more damage from water. They could also enjoy increased resistance to stuns. Guardian of the Waves: A water mage could have +25% increased resistance to water damage and melee attacks as well as being unable to be slowed, while taking 5% more damage from fire and poison. Corrosive Skin: A poison mage (? O_o) could enjoy similar resistance to poison damage and very high physical regeneration while being more vulnerable to ... something. The poison element is a bit tricky, much like the wind element which typically offers high evasion, if I recall correctly. (Someone check on this for me, please. ) The arcane mastery is also not something I can see working with this concept, but let me know what you think in the comments. Guardian Winds: For wind mages. Not sure about this part. Increased resistance to projectile attacks? HUGE EDIT: The poison resistance skill (Corrosive Skin) won't work here as it (along with the others) was viewed as (optional) part of the appropriate mastery. There is no mastery skill branch for poison in the Mage skill tree. Something for hawkers then? Also, the arcane resistance should simply be considered part and parcel of the current Fortified Mana Shield.
  5. Considering the changes with cleric and Rednim wanting the class to be more active, I think it would be really cool, and support and enhance that idea if cleric got their own seperate version of Mana Shield that was cast able on other friendly players as a defensive support spell that sacrificed and used a good portion of the cleric's mana to shield and support a player (as it would be hard to make the clerics MP decrease depending on how much the player it was casted on is hit for) If it were a fixed amount, like for example drain 40% of the cleric's mana in return for 35% shield or something similar. And this spell is only for cleric, not muse as well and act's as a seperate support version of mana shield for muse. And of course they can still have that spell as well but they could not overlap the spells of course. I think this would also create more build diversity, and utilize stats, gears and gems more catered toward increasing max mana and mana consumption. Thanks for reading, I'd love to know what you think about this idea. Cheers, Rosarians
  6. I think player's are rushed too fast to pick a certain weapon, and don't even really understand what that weapon may be better or worse at, or that it even exists and is able to be used with their class. I think there should be some sort of simple instructions and introductions for each weapon type, telling people what their strengths and weaknesses are. I think this would be teach players more about the game and what playstyle they want to do, and what kind of build they want for their character. I think in general this game needs alot more introductions for game mechanics and systems. Yes i know that most of us are rose vets that already know all of this, but it would be very informative to new players and would help them decide which to play and in general is good to teach players about the game rather than making them figure it out for themselves.
  7. Many discussions in the Discord have been about the lack of skills the Cleric has after the removal of buffs. Here are some ideas for new skills to give to Clerics so their presence can shine with party and solo play for those that love the class. Buff Related Skills: Inspiring Dance - The Cleric performs a charming dance of inspiration fortifying the active buffs on themselves and on party members making them immune to enemy purify spells for 60 seconds. Pros: Avoid the need to rebuff during a battle where enemies may purify the buffs off of party members. Cons: Long cooldown. Situational use. Godly Shout - The Cleric lets out a loud bellowing shout that imbues themselves and others around them with high motivational powers increasing the strength of current active support buffs by 100% for 15 seconds. Pros: Empowers party members shortly to increase damage and defenses. Cons: Cleric needs to be in range of everyone. Long cooldown. Power of Friendship - The Cleric chooses a party member and channels their own and all of the other party member's buffs to be absorbed by the target party member giving them incredible power for 10 seconds. For each set of buffs absorbed per party member the target party member gains the buff effects multiplied equal to the absorbed amount (Example: If the party consists of 4 players the target player receiving all the buffs has their buff effects amplified by 3x the normal amount). Pros: One party member becomes incredibly powerful for a short duration. Good for desperate situations. Cons: Only works in party. Other party members lose their buffs. Long cooldown. Situational. Chant of Power Burst - The Cleric selects a buffed target and mumbles a mysterious chant towards them. After 5 seconds, the buffs on the buffed target burst off and deal damage to all enemies around them for the target's overall buffed damage amount. Pros: Short burst area of effect damage. Cons: Removes buffs from the target. May cause trolling/meme'ing. Prolonged Blessings - Increase the duration of buffs on the Cleric and party members by 30 minutes. Pros: Reduces the need to buff more often. Cons: Requires death, log out, or special items/skills to remove buffs in order to apply stronger ones. Song of Disenchantment - The Cleric sings a soothing tune which removes all buffs on a friendly target. Pros: Removes buffs to allow for new/stronger ones or none at all depending on situation. Cons: May cause trolling/meme'ing. Summon Divine Phantom Sword/Divine Soldier - Summons a Divine being that behaves like the Soldier class or like a sword. It offers the buffs of the Soldier class and taunts enemies. Pros: Good for solo and party. Gives the Cleric another set of class buffs. Allows the option to fill in a missing class slot within the party for missing buffs. Cons: The buffs wouldn't be as strong as the legit ones. Only the taunt would be of use in a full party with all classes. Summon Divine Phantom Bow/Divine Hawker - Summons a Divine being that behaves like the Hawker class or a bow. It offers the buffs of the Hawker class and taunts enemies. Pros: Good for solo and party. Gives the Cleric another set of class buffs. Allows the option to fill in a missing class slot within the party for missing buffs. Cons: The buffs wouldn't be as strong as the legit ones. Only the taunt would be of use in a full party with all classes. Summon Divine Phantom Launcher/Divine Dealer - Summons a Divine being that behaves like the Dealer class or a launcher. It offers the buffs of the Dealer class and taunts enemies. Pros: Good for solo and party. Gives the Cleric another set of class buffs. Allows the option to fill in a missing class slot within the party for missing buffs. Cons: The buffs wouldn't be as strong as the legit ones. Only the taunt would be of use in a full party with all classes. Blessings of the Four Heroes - Give a Visitor a High-Five infusing them with the offensive buffs of the four classes (Critical, Damage, Power, Hit, Attack Speed, and Movement Speed) for 7 minutes. 1 minute cooldown. Pros: Allows the Cleric to support new Visitor characters to help them until they reach their job. Cons: Only works on Visitors. Long Cooldown. Support Related Skills: Improved Purify - Purify harmful debuffs on self and party members within range. Pros: Clears harmful debuffs from the Cleric and Party members. Cons: Keeping in range of party members. Mass Resurrection - Return to life all players who have fallen in a short range around the Cleric. Pros: Bring back to life multiple characters at once. Cons: Mana heavy. Long cooldown. Second Chance - Bless one target with an extra life for 10 minutes, if the target were to die (or their health drops bellow 10%), they become fully healed instead. Pros: Save a player or summon from death. Cons: Only works for one target at a time. Divine Barrier - Bless a target with a protective barrier that absorbs 1000 damage for 5 seconds. Pros: Gives a target a protective shield to absorb damage shortly. Cons: Only for one target. Long cooldown. Divine Dome (Improved Divine Barrier) - Bless the Cleric and their party members with a barrier that absorbs 1000 damage for 5 seconds. Pros: Protects the party from damage shortly. Cons: Only works with a party. Long cooldown. Avatar of Holy Fire - The Cleric absorbs all active bonfires around them and burns with holy fire which heals, replenishes mana, and gives debuff immunity to all friendly players within a short range. Lasts until cancelled or mana reaches bellow 10%. Drains 1% mana per second when active. Pros: The Cleric becomes a mobile bonfire with additional benefit for a duration. Cons: Heavy mana consumption. Life Exchange - Swap the health of two targets (Including normal monsters). Pros: Quick life regain on a character close to death. Change the advantage against fighting normal monsters when an ally is lower on health. Could reduce a monsters life equal to the players. Cons: May cause the target with less health to receive fatal damage from an area of effect attack or other effect. Targets need to be in close range of each other. Situational. Dance of Equivalence - The Cleric performs a short dance which spreads oncoming damage equally amongst all party members for 5 seconds. Pros: Reduces any life threatening damage on a single party member. Can shortly group tank big boss damage. Cons: Short duration. May put a lower health member at risk. Holy Wand - The Cleric enchants their wand with healing for 30 seconds, allowing the Cleric to heal a target instead of dealing damage with the wand for the duration. Pros: Heals a target consistently without needing to cast spells. Cons: The wand can’t deal damage to enemies during the enchantments duration. Only one Wand Enchantment can be active at a time. Life Wand - The Cleric enchants their wand with life essence for 30 seconds, allowing the Cleric to heal themselves and party members for 25% of the damage they deal to the target for the duration. Pros: Deals damage and heals the Cleric and party members for a small amount consistently without needing to cast spells. Cons: Healing may be low against high hitting enemies. Only one Wand Enchantment can be active at a time. Mana Wand - The Cleric enchants their wand with mana rejuvenation for 30 seconds, allowing the Cleric to regain a portion of MP to themselves and party members for 20% of the damage they deal to the target for the duration. Pros: Deals damage and replenishes some MP to the Cleric and party members consistently. Cons: Only one Wand Enchantment can be active at a time. Aura's Embrace - Embrace a target with warmth healing them for 1000 health over 10 seconds. Pros: Heal over time effect, allowing the Cleric to quickly change to other skills and tasks. Cons: May not out-heal incoming damage fast enough. Mana for Blood - The Cleric offers their mana as a shield to a target character so that all incoming damage they receive for 5 seconds is drained from the Cleric's mana instead of the target's life. Pros: Saves health on a target character for a short time. Cons: May drain too much mana from the Cleric. Soul Link - The Cleric binds their soul to a target character or normal monster, splitting the damage taken among the Cleric and the target for 10 seconds. Pros: Could mirror damage to a normal monster to help kill it quicker for faster leveling. Could reduce big damage from one character and have it shared with the Cleric. Cons: May put the Cleric at risk in some situations. Long cooldown. Lingering Spirit - The Cleric binds their spirit with the presence of Aura for 30 minutes. If the Cleric were to die during this time they do not lose any experience and reincarnate as a being of pure light for 10 seconds, binding them to the location of their body but allowing them to target and use spells as if they would be alive. 60 minute cooldown. Pros: Prevents the Cleric from experience loss on death. The Cleric can support party members or other targets for a short duration after death. They may also squeeze in a bit more damage shortly. Cons: Really long cooldown. Situational. Have to wait to 10 seconds for the effect to end before being able to respawn. Cursed Chant: Power Steal - The Cleric mumbles some strange words and flexes at a target enemy applying a 3 second debuff timer.

(The enemy‘s Attack Power is 0 during the 3 second duration when it is stolen. An Attack Power Down debuff is applied to visually show the effect). Pros: Cripple an enemy from dealing damage and at the same time increase damage of the Cleric and their party or the Cleric themselves if they’re solo. Cons: Short duration. Situational use.

Could cause the Cleric to gain monster aggression. Holy Beam - The Cleric fires a blinding beam from their wand in their current facing direction instantly healing any friendly targets hit by the beam for 500 health and stunning any enemies hit for 2 seconds (Horizontal light beam like the Cure/Healing/Restore one but doesn’t require targeting). 50m range. 5 minute cool down. Pros: A quick non target required heal and enemy stun. Could be used in situational scenarios for fleeing or quickly healing a party member or summon. Cons: Positioning for optimal spell use. Long cooldown. Ghost Purging - The Cleric and their party gain 20% increased damage and always deal Holy element damage to Ghost element type monsters for 5 minutes. Pros: Increases kill speed and leveling when fighting ghost element type monsters. Cons: Only benefits against ghost element type monsters. Light of the Seven - The Cleric smites an enemy with holy light influenced randomly by one of the seven planets (resembling the light beam like the one for Cure/Healing/Restore, except in a colour representing one of the seven planets. Blue, White, Green, Gold, Red, Purple, Black). The smite deals 600 damage to the enemy and an additional effect depending on the randomly chosen planet (May cause poisoning, burning, stat reduction, healing to friendly, etc). Pros: Allows the Cleric to have their own unique offensive spell. Cons: May reduce mana quickly if used too often. Random debuff from the seven may or may not be helpful. Divine Force - The Cleric holds their wand up high and emits a bright golden light in a short range around themselves which deals 200 holy element damage and knocks back any enemies within its range. Pros: Defensive/offensive spell allowing the Cleric some time to breath when overwhelmed. Cons: Long cooldown. Could cause enemies to be knocked back into more enemies which may then also join the fray. These skills are all with the idea in mind to keep as close to the original style of the game without the need of too many new art assets. These are all ideas for active skills as passives just tend to be variable increases. The names (in purple, cyan, and blue) and the values (in orange) of skills are all theoretical and should be viewed as placeholders. It’s the ideas that count! Feel free to add your own ideas!
  8. The purpose of this suggestion is to introduce diversification for the Cleric class, such as Heal-specialist (knows specialized healing skills) and Buff-specialist (knows specialized buff skills).

Each stack increases movement speed and dodge rate by 5%. Specialized passive skill. Note: Texts in blue are figures subject to balance adjustments. Please give feedback based on concept.
  9. my idea for cleric .. how about make cleric a debuff kind of support something that we need in a party and can be a main character to play something spammable like "DEF down, slow, root(vines that explodes in every hit kinda like this guy's skill https://log-horizon.fandom.com/wiki/Shiroe) , curse(DPS), burn or make enemy target vulnerable for a few seconds that will make dps deal more damage and heals can that can be offensive if used against enemy(Demon types) this will be a fun char for me at least..
  10. I think to balance all classes, the cleric buff should be reduced in duration. for a couple seconds for example. that way all classes will have strengths in each line. and the game won't feel too fast. The Carts and Mount will have its value again, due to the absence of the unsustained dash buff, so player will choose to have mount and Carts. Cleric has 2 different focus, between enchanter or healer. And i think heal skill need longer Cooldown, and add the Mobs area skill with timer that deals massive damage so player must dodge it. With that change... players can't auto lvling again (Boting) or leecher, and will be harder to get caps lvl. without Boting player will have real experience and memories each level went up. (Item Mall double exp medals will have more value again)
  11. The following proposes a small tweak to Alchemy Craft that has continuous benefits for vertical progression as well as some benefits for PvP and other end-game content. Currently, Level 1 Alchemy Craft can craft some HP and MP potions, a basic grenade and flash grenade (single-target ACC down consumable), a box of bone arrows, a box of iron bullets and crates of aforesaid HP/MP vials. Firstly, there's no reason crafting iron shells shouldn't be an option alongside iron bullets. This makes launcher-wielding Dealers a bit more independent and frees up some space in their backpack. Also, please adjust the ACC down debuff from flash grenades to be extended by 1.5 seconds. This would match the time it takes a Dealer to execute another skill or to run out of aggro range. Secondly, being able to craft mines could offer Dealers a very strong addition to their current playstyle. Mines are consumable small invisible ground-placeable semi-permanent units that damage and debuff nearby enemies when self-destructing on contact. The range of contact should be around 3.5m, slightly greater than melee attack range. Units use the Dealer's summon gauge and disappear in PvP when the Dealer dies or leaves the arena instance. Whether this happens when the Dealer dies in the open-world map is up for debate. Availability of crafting ingredients naturally limits the strength of this addition (via loot and zulie), preventing overpowered strats. Ingredients would be similar to grenades. Being able to use mines and even later stationary True Sight items like sentries (an evolution of the basic mines for the endgame Dealer) to detect and counter assassinating katars could also be a unique but not overpowered PvP playstyle, depending on the implementation. Anyone who has ever played in similar ways in games like RUST and Dota should be able to easily understand the mental metagame involved that adds another layer to PvP combat. For players who are unfamiliar with this style of combat, feel free to message me with your questions outside of the forum. Thirdly, could we have another basic crafting recipe to convert gunpowder to gunpowder packets (maybe gunpowder and a cloth-type material?). This gives Dealers even greater independence by converting looted items almost directly into ammo and ordnance. Every potentially impactful decision a Dealer has to make, especially regarding looted materials (toss or keep?) makes their experience more meaningful and enjoyable. Lastly, I'd like to propose a radical addition known as a Fire. This would be another consumable crafted from coal, wood and metal. When consumed, the 'fire' spawns a temporary fire-model unit (the one seen in Goblin Caves and Desert of the Dead, not the Bonfire model of Muses) on the ground that gives a flat and percentage (scaling) bonus to CON for nearby allied units. This relates to an endgame goal for Artisans called a Forge that isn't the currently useless Castle Gear. Please consider the above seriously, especially the iron shells and mines crafting. Thank you for your consideration.
  12. Soo, stockpile... It has worked, not worked, seen as unfair, removed, implemented and broken again. Looking at the streams the whole drop system seems to have changed (for me, old ROSE player) Now there are 6 "classes" with seperate droptables (i.e common drops, rare drops etc) Would it be possible to trigger specific parts of the tables as part of the stockpile effect? (i.e. Stockpile multiplies drops amount by 1.5 roundeddown, for common drops) Further levels could influence chance of exclusive drop by 1% or something along that line? Plain removal would make a bourg just not special anymore
  13. Currently, bonfires heal a certain percentage of HP every 10 seconds. I would suggest that they heal either half as much, but every 5 seconds or, They heal 30% as much but every 3 seconds.
  14. I know that Leonis was talking about a Monk Class and 3rd Jobs at one of my trips to Gravity. If I recall, there was some stuff being built for the 3rd class jobs, but I could not say what they were. Did any work happen for the new Monk (or whatever name it was going to be) class?
  15. I think it would be a good idea to have an NPC in Junon for resetting skills and stats. It would make sense to give players free skill/stat resets until level 100, so (especially new) players can experiment without being punished, or they can just reset if they pick the wrong skills/stats. After level 100, I think it would make sense to charge something like 1 million * each level you have over 100, with a base cost of 50 million Zulie, or something in that range. So, if you're level 157, it should cost 107 million Zulie for someone to reset their skills or stats. It wouldn't be free, but it would be affordable enough to be able to get a reset past level 100, if someone wants one.
  16. Okay, so to start off, I did post in your discord and also on a youtube comment. I was directed here. I apologize for bad formatting and rambling. Passion is hard to break down into simple means for me. So here we go! Classes, a complete overhaul to refresh the game and set it apart from other rose variants. Firstly "visitor" would become "villager." I mean you aren't just "visiting" the world when the Aura Fairy teleports you there, you become a "resident" which you could also change Visitor into Resident. Maybe the "welcome to the game quest" which helps new players learn the game turns you into a "villager" or "resident" thus immediately grants you "resident" or "villager" title/class. You should in my mind be able to play through the entire game without ever choosing another class. Sort of a "hardcore" mode. But then you would have your four main "first job" classes, which would be changed slightly.... The upcoming changes also had a bit (in my mind) to do with how the developers stated they wanted to make the Muse MORE than just a "sit there and buff" class.... these changes help with that for all class sets.... Instead of Soldier, Hawker, Muse, and Dealer, you would have Warrior, Thief, Mage and Dealer (couldn't think of another name for dealer). Each of these would then have FOUR subclasses (aka 2nd tier) that you could upgrade into. Again this would help set the game apart from other Rose Clients allowing players to have more variety and gameplay style/choices. The Warrior (ex Soldier) would then be able to upgrade into Knight, Paladin, Champion, and Samurai. The Paladin would be a ideal for more solo minded players, as you would have moderate damage, moderate defense, and light healing. Paladin weapons would focus on single hand weapons with a shield. But they would be able to use wands and shields to slightly buff their mana/heal power, but still not as good healing as the Cleric from the mage category. The Knight would be your typical tank, with high defense and moderate damage who focuses on shield and single handed melee weapons with lots of shield skills like bash or taunt.... Champion is your typical "all rounder" class which has moderate defense, moderate damage, and can use ANY melee weapon in the game, a great "introduction" into the world of melee. The Samurai would then become your "sword user" who could uses swords, spears, and katanas (new weapon set) and have special skill sets to go with each of their weapon choices. The Samurai would have high damage and low defense. This gives the player more choice and more segregation between classes in 2nd tier. Helps let players feels more "unique". The Thief (ex Hawker) would then be able to upgrade into Assassin, Ranger, Swashbuckler, and Bard. The Assassin would get new a new weapon aka DAGGER which can be equipped into both hand slots (typically sword/shield or wand/other). The Assassin would also be able to use the hawker "dual sword" and "katar" based weapons. The class breakdown would have two subsets, direct and indirect. Indirect focuses on going invisible and attacking from the shadows while direct would focus on straight on damage. Assassins would have high damage and low defense. Then Ranger would be your typical bow/crossbow class. Who can also call "animals" to aide them in the form of pets. So you could call a hawk, or a wolf, and maybe two other types of creatures. The hawk is more about attack speed low damage, the wolf is more about damage and moderate attack speed, and maybe a turtle that acts as a tank that has high defense but low attack. Giving the Ranger more "range" in how its player (puns, lmao right?). Then you have Swashbuckler, this would be your moderate damage moderate defense character. Passive skills to boost "parry" chance to block incoming attacks. High attack speed and moderate damage. Bard would be the buff class for this range of characters. You would need to add in weapons like guitar, drums, etc. And the bard can either play an attack role or buff role. The buff role would be an AOE where as long as the bard is playing his instrument, teammates within range would gain a buff to certain skills. Which would be cool! They may also have light AOE healing with their songs as well, not as much healing as Cleric or Paladin but can heal more than 1 player at a time which would be dope. Sort of a moving Muse Bonfire but less healing. The Wizard (ex Muse) would then be able to upgrade into Cleric, Mage, Mystic, and Necromancer. The Cleric has a high affinity for healing both direct and passive. The bonfire skill will remain as a "static" placement (can't be moved until the timer runs out, aka think about where you place it) and of course high power single target healing. Cleric would also be the opposite of the Paladin, so low defense, moderate damage (equal to Paladin) and high healing (where as Paladin was moderate defense, moderate damage, and low healing). Mage would be your typical "elemental" magic user, fire, ice, lightening, earth.... with skills in each category. Would have both high damage direct attacks and low/moderate damage AOE attacks. Then you have Mystic. This is your "arcane" damage dealer. Basically all attacks are "arcane" damage like magic missile from classic D&D.... And then Necromancer, being able to summon skeletons, golums, bats, etc to fight by your side. Maybe have a system slightly like Diablo2 where you have "skeleton" skill then a "skeleton passive" that you can put points into. So Skeleton summon gives you 1-2-3-4 skeletons to summon, each tier giving you either more health, last longer, or more skeletons (will need balancing but still its an example) and then the passive skill will boost damage output of your summons or defense of your summons. So skeleton attack and skeleton defense maybe skeleton attack speed. Making the necromancer have skill point sinks to balance it out with other classes. Down the road you could have "unlockable classes" that are "hidden" like "death knight" or "monk" which you can learn by playing through the game and completing some NPC's quest (when you are high enough level to do said quests). This would make the game more dynamic and fun in my opinion. More options helps set your playstyle apart from other players. Nothing worse than seeing 1000's of the same class choice playing exactly the same way, using the same exact skills. I think back to world of warcraft, where every single warrior plays exactly the same, wearing the same gear, same skills, same playstyle. That's lame to me. I love choice. Now onto CRAFTING. As I remember, the OG crafting you could use ANY material you wanted. So making a noob sword might take metal and wood. Using higher end materials only meant you had a higher chance of success. I think it would be BETTER if using higher end materials meant you got a final product with better stats. For example, maybe the starter wooden sword. 7 attack power, fast +3 attack speed, and hitting rate in the high 20's. Using "end game materials" might result in 13 attack power, fast +3 attack speed, and hitting rate in the high 30's. This would obviously need balancing like anything else. But it would help set the game apart from other rose clients. this also helps close the gap between UNIQUE item drops and normal weapon gear you can buy from NPC's. This helps the Player vs Player interaction like buying/selling or communicating on crafting for guilds or friends. This way, there is a reason to buy gear made from players vs looking only for unique gear.... From what I remember, the gatling gun unique drop would do about 100 damage and its only requirement was 59 strength? (if I remember correctly). Doing 100 damage with a normal launcher would be akin to a level 50-60 launcher!!! And you could use the noob launcher at like level 15-16 (if I remember correctly, aka putting 60 points directly into strength at every level). So from 15/16 to about level 60 you had an OP weapon that lets you level up faster than anyone else. I don't think that should be nerfed, but I do think craft-able items should help close the gap. If you use higher tier materials you should be able to get close to but not exactly the same kind of power on lower tier items vs unique. So if at level 15/16 you could do 100 damage with a unique, maybe the player made uniques using high tier materials for lower end weapons could get you to 75 or 80 damage. Not as much as unique, but still enough to be "worthwhile" to buy from crafters. This gives crafters a bigger role in the economy other than "make wings" or "make mask/glasses" which I remember being the meme. "if you want to make money, make wings and face items". I honestly think this will help set Rose apart from other iterations and older versions. This I believe could bring a new breath of life to the game, while still offering that classic Rose feeling and gameplay. The best parts of rose online? being able to pick your own stat points and skill points. Having ACTUAL choice. I would love to see skill tree's big enough that you can't learn everything. This way you have to choose which skills you prefer to use as a player. Player one might focus on AOE while another focuses on Direct Damage, another might want to do high end healing. This way players have more choice and thus more variation in groups and parties as to how the game would be attacked and overcome. Rose is a great game. even if you DONT use my idea's. I know rose will still be fun to play.
  17. Hello, everyone. This suggestion provides clerics with a unique skill that I might've hinted at before for saving parties. Lets get into it. Hostile units near the caster are not aggravated unless attacked or affected by a spell. Caster assumes a seated meditative position and is unable to attack or cast spells. Duration: Indefinite (emote), 5 seconds fade time after breaking meditation. Radius: 36 meters Cooldown: 50 seconds Cost: 50% of caster's max MP Advantages: - Can, with good timing, reliably resurrect an entire team from teamwipe - Allows clerics (Muses too?) to navigate and explore terrain even stealthed characters cannot. Problems: - Use-case is limited - Requires a new emote
  18. This is generally how I think most of the second classes should be balanced, in terms of general strengths and weaknesses, which would mostly be the skills that they have access to. I can probably go into further detail in the future, but this is how I'm going to do it for now. This list is going to be assuming the setting is a PVP 1v1. The two classes that I'm not going to be covering, because I think their roles aren't really suitable for 1v1s, are Cleric and Artisan. Although, I don't have enough experience on Artisan to say whether they're actually good at damaging anything. My assumption is that their primary purpose is for crafting, and Clerics are for healing and supporting, not dealing damage. I'm also going to assume that each class is neutral against itself, disregarding minor build differences. For the sake of this thread, also going to exclude Bourgeois in their current state, and instead list them as I would ideally like them to be, because it seems that they primarily rely on their summons to get stuff done, which would not be easy to balance for PVP. This stuff could most likely use a lot of refinement, but this is enough for now, and just about as well as I can do, until I can see the skill trees, to build more informed opinions. The classes in this list are: Scout, Raider, Mage (no summons), Bourgeois (no summons), Champion, Knight Scout: Ranged, typically with some kind of bow. Primary Strengths: High Attack Speed, High Accuracy, % Physical Defense Penetration Primary Weaknesses: Low Magic & Physical Defense, Low Max Health Raider: Melee, typically with dual wielded weapons, like katars. Primary Strengths: High Movement Speed, High Attack Speed, High Accuracy, High Dodge Rate Primary Weaknesses: Low Magic & Physical Defense, Low Max Health Mage: Melee, typically with a staff. Primary Strengths: Medium Magic Defense, High Magic Damage, High Burst Magic Damage, % Magic Defense Penetration, Crowd Control (Single Target & AOE Stuns, Slows, Snares, etc.) Primary Weaknesses: Low Physical Defense, Low Max Health Bourgeois: Ranged, typically with a gun or a cannon. Primary Strengths: High Physical Damage, High Accuracy, % Physical Defense Penetration Primary Weaknesses: Low Attack Speed, Low Physical Defense, Low Max Health Champion: Melee, typically with a two handed weapon, like an axe or a spear. Primary Strengths: Medium Max Health, High Physical Attack Damage, High Burst Physical Damage, Medium Physical Defense Primary Weaknesses: Low Magic Defense, Low Movement Speed Knight: Melee, typically with a one handed weapon and a shield. Primary Strengths: High Max Health, High Physical Defense, % (Physical and/or Magic) Damage Absorption Primary Weaknesses: Low Damage Potential, Low Movement Speed -- Synopsis: Scout: Scouts should be good at dealing large amounts of damage, from somewhat far away, in a short amount of time. Given that they should be attacking quickly, and with high accuracy, they will be able to get a high number of consecutive hits on targets that don't have a high dodge rate. There should be a way for Scouts to be able to increase their physical defense penetration as a passive percentage debuff per attack, as well as abilities to temporarily increase their damage, hit-chance, and physical defense penetration for a few consecutive attacks, in addition to abilities that can slow/share their target for a brief moment. Raider: Raiders should be good at moving around more swiftly than the average movement speed, but not TOO swiftly that nobody can ever catch them. There should be a couple of abilities on every class to slow/snare/debuff opponents, especially quick a opponent, like a Raider. They should also be good at hitting accurately, and with a passive percentage-based physical defense penetration, along with other abilities that help them beat up heavily armored opponents, and tear up opponents that have low physical defense. Against a Champion or Mage, Raiders should be required to be on their toes, otherwise they'll get a good chunk of their health taken away with a single ability. Mage: I think a Mage should be treated like a magic version of a Champion. They should excel at dealing large amounts of magic damage in short bursts, but also have the ability to CC individuals and larger groups, which should make them stand out from other classes. The down side, however, is that they will be vulnerable to most of the other classes, due to their low max HP. They will have to skillfully shut their opponents down, before they take too much damage. In a mirror match, it should be down to who is more skilled and who has the better build, since both players will likely have decent magic defense. Bourgeois: Since this is basically a version of Bourgeois that I made up, it likely conflicts with how it currently is, but that's okay. I think Bourgeois should be a version of Scout, but with guns/cannons, and a focus on low attack speed and high physical damage, rather than high attack speed and low damage. Scout and Bourgeois can both share the ability to penetrate physical defense, for the sake of countering knights. They'll be able to tear through classes with low max health as well. Champion: Champions should be able to deal large amounts of physical damage in bursts, and per auto attack, but not have high physical armor penetration, and be restricted by their low movement speed and magic defense. They should be somewhat unfavored, but not too much, against Raiders, due to their medium physical defense, and somewhat favored against Knights. Due to their low physical armor penetration, but high physical damage potential, and a Knight's lack of ability to deal a lot of damage in a short amount of time, Champions should come out on top in that matchup maybe 60-70% of the time, on an equal-skill playing field. Against Mages, in most cases, I think it will be a matter of whether or not the Champion can get close enough to deal crippling blows to the Mage, before they're locked down by CC and defeated by a lot of magic damage. Knight: Knights should be the class that can appeal to defensive players. I think they should have some passive abilities to deal thorns damage, which returns some damage to the attacker, for both physical and magic damage, as well as have high resistances to both physical and magic damage. Their main weakness should be their lack of ability to deal a lot of damage over a short time period, and their low movement speed. They will have to rely on absorbing and returning damage over time, and dealing smaller amounts of damage with some of their other abilities. Knights could have some physical damage CC, like the ability that slams into the ground and stuns in a radius. I think slower movement speed classes should have ranged abilities that can slow/stun their target, to help them against stronger opponents. They could also have some abilities that they can spec into, which would reduce their max potential resistances, but increase their damage potential to a somewhat medium range, to be maybe 60% of a champion's damage potential. -- Conclusion: Other than these strengths and weaknesses, each class should also have abilities that help them in some minor way against their weaknesses, but not enough to significantly turn the tide of a battle by themselves. If used skillfully, you should be able to win against a hard counter maybe 35-40% of the time, if both players are equally skilled. In a game like ROSE, I think all classes should have one ability that you can skillfully time to avoid any incoming ability, and either be immune, take reduced damage, or maybe revive with a small % of your max health if you are killed (which could probably be best utilized as a passive ability). This would allow classes to fare better against stronger opponents, both skillfully and balance-wise. This post isn't perfect, and likely has a few holes that people will point out, but I think it points to the beginning of a good path for class balance. * I think it would be a good feature to slightly increase miss chance on all attacks/abilities if a target is moving perpendicular to their attacker.
  19. Hawker players tended to get one 'free' summon from their skill tree and another from a Unique skill book. These skill points are wasted as these summons are relatively one-dimensional, squishy and even weak. Mere distractions, even. Could we change this? What if we had an option for the player to go hard on becoming beastmasters? Basically, the summoner variant of their normal playstyle. We could have 2 major options: - Quest-based Summon - only one summon 'charmed' from the field that grows over time. Loyalty increases with food and rest, decreases with deaths and neglect. Can become a mount. Can eventually equip items (once quest is completed). Items have dura etc. (Basically a familiar.) Does not impact summon gauge. -Ad hoc summoning - 'Tame' skill - gets many familiars (based on summon gauge) tamed from the field, loyalty value that only decreases. Abandons caster when loyalty reaches critical value (any death, neglect). Cannot be used as mounts. Cannot equip items. The sub-skilltree could have various parameters influencing active skills available to the beast. With regard to the familiar-type summon, summons could increase in combat stats based on their feed, i.e. one could develop a familiar for speed, vitality (HP), durability (DEF) and so on based on the types of food one gives them. There could also be breeding skills to grow a special bloodline of familiar. Maybe an economic opportunity if we could put these monsters in capsules and sell them to other players? Advantages: - Not too demanding in terms of skill points consumed, tbh. - It offers a more diverse playstyle that can keep players engaged well into the endgame. Problems: - Needs to be properly thought out before implementation as it easily risks imbalancing the classes - Could become the de facto meta for hawkers, esp. scouts if no other diversity is found in their builds. - Too similar to another suggestion.
  20. Back in Pre-EVO time Triggersoft was experimenting with Cart Weapons and skills for just those Cart weapons how about adding in cart and cg weapon skills too?
  21. Suggestion: Cast range increase: Add 3 meters to Sniping's cast range per skill level learned Cooldown increase: Add 5 seconds to the cooldown. Status change: Have the skill deal guaranteed critical damage. If Sniping has, for example, 9 skill levels with a maximum cast range of 30 meters, the new Sniping would be effective at 33 meters at level 1 and 57 meters at level 9. The cooldown would also go from 6 seconds at all level to 11 seconds. This includes the casting time. PROS: -Sniping would fit the theme of the skill name and skill tree. -Dealers can deal more reliable damage in battle without instantly being discovered. However, avoiding death would still be reliant on their ability to find cover. -Supplements - does not replace - the effectiveness of their mid-range attack skills. -Adds to a potential fortification-based playstyle. A Sniper would have to move to find better cover after firing. But should you follow the Sniper? Maybe there are traps! You don't know! CONS: -Sniping would be less available in PvP / not be spammable. -Requires changing some skill values that haven't been changed in forever -.... (other stuff I can't think of right now, let me know what else goes here)
  22. At this time, clerics have the ability to summon phantom swords, earth elementals, ice dragons, flame dragons, salamander flames, mana flames and bonfires. Others have suggested giving these summons appropriate abilities (slows, damage over time, taunts etc.), and I echo those suggestions. I believe those calls have even found a warm reception. In addition to these though, I'd like to distinguish clerics (and their muse prototypes) from other classes in giving them something for free: a free spirit sword. Yes, that's right. On completing the Muse job quest, I'd like muses to gain a free pre-learned skill called Summon Spirit Sword/Phantom Sword. This removes the floating sword summon from the summon skill tree. The summon could even have its own sub-tree with skills like sharing damage received by the caster, chance to counterattack with a critical attack, an aura that increases accuracy and critical attack damage, and so on. The sword can grow in strength and ability over time if nourished by the muse/cleric with kills and/or devotion to the muse's god. Why? - Streamlines the damage-dealing component of leveling for muses, so no choice is forced upon them between support and dealing SOME damage. - Gives clerics something to build on in the lategame/endgame. Problems with this: - Why should Muses get free stuff? Do they just suck? I don't understand the favoritism here!? Is your daughter a muse? Is this nepotism? - Forces clerics to have faith in a god. Previously, Faith was simply the result of a series of quests and has little to no impact on the game. However, involving an almost never-before-used concept into the redesign of a controversial class seems interesting. Let's see where we can go with this with enough thought and feedback. - Implementation of Faith from early-game on will need more (good quality) questlines - Other stuff I can't think of right now.
  23. Having build diversity based on stats and equipment could be an interesting direction for the game. Champions that want to tank while doing decent damage could go STR/SEN(or some other stat) while a pure damage Champ could go STR. Individual builds would be more suited to play style and creates even more diversity in builds. Other classes can use this same approach IE the Cleric. DEX/INT- DPS Cleric STR(or SEN)/INT - Tank Cleric INT Pure- Buff Cleric. These are just a few ideas I think could be interesting.
  24. Sorry if it has been mentioned on another thread but i would like to suggest 2 skills that i think would be ideal for clerics and their survivability. I would suggest a (cool down) skill for clerics which can be either for the clerics only or party as well, I know some of you might think that is ludicrous because it would be an advantage to clerics but it is not really as the skill should only increase cool down for about 1-2 seconds max which would make clerics an integral part in parties. The other skill i would suggest would be an AoE with a sleep or stun effect to help if clerics are swarmed by a lot of mobs, I know lightning use to target a group of mobs not sure in which revision of Rose that would be and not sure if it is still in this Edition. Just my idea of helping clerics out a bit more as I do not see the benefits of crit dmg and atk-spd for spellcasters unless you use your weapon without its skills which defeat the purpose of being a spell caster/healer in the first place.
  25. I dont believe that clerics need changed nothing was wrong with them thats the point in that character to help people and thats all. I get trying to make them less of that but that was and is the whole point in them...every game does it that way for a cleric they heal or buff and if you dont wanna do that then you be the mage version thats kinda why the classes have two different play types to be balanced and if you change that too much it breaks the game rendering it useless. taking away the offensive buffs will make them kinda pointless cause they dont kill either also if you make them do damage then why play the mage side of it at all. But either way i dont believe it should take over a year to start something like this i mean look at rose code zero they had theres up in a short timeframe and ik size of the dev team may be small but if thats the case maybe bring more people on to the team so that people can help accomplish things faster and help get people back to playing the game we all actually enjoyed years ago... I understand things take time and having a different outlook on the game but alot of the people here miss the original no one wanted anything but the original it was actually fun but changes to classes that make them do what a class we already have does is pointless i suggest adding new content and sure modify the content that is there but the classes dont have any issues with them.. I am super happy you all have decided to bring this game back i would love to be apart of the team working on this honestly. i dont think some of these changes that are planned are the best for the game..
