Bobbity Posted September 28, 2022 Share Posted September 28, 2022 (edited) Hi, guys. I'm here to ask for your in-depth answers on what a dealer is both on and off the field. Also, what is a dealer in contrast to a scout? How do they differ? How should they differ? So: combat-wise and in terms of farming and crafting, what is the concept of a dealer and the concept of a scout? When I think Dealer, I think 'screw the rules, I have money'. Winning with the power of pure capitalism, exploitation and piracy. I think: machines, an army of machines guns - lots of guns cannons crafting armor in a cave from a box of scraps When I think guns and cannons, I also think unrelenting bombardment of heavy artillery unparalleled precision in sniping. defensive structures, fortresses My concept of a scout involves the following: Stealth Long-ranged attack Infrequent attacks Trick shots unparalleled precision in sniping Very strong normal attack and skill attack power Can charge attacks for greater damage Hard to lock down / slippery cool, calm and collected So, there's an inevitable overlap that troubles me. Don't scouts also focus on critical precision of their sniping? Isn't every Scout a Legolas-wannabe? Also, do scouts get to learn fletching skills? If not, are we really going to leave ALL the crafting to the dealers? Considering how easy it is to craft arrows, I feel this needlessly removes an empowering ability from a class that has no good earlygame AOEs (no Rain of Arrows or Tornado Shot skills). I feel like we should double-down on the aspects of capitalism, crafting things other than equippable weapons, heavy artillery, mass-production and mass-deployment for Dealers and go hard on Sniping for Scouts. Yes, it'll mean removing Sniping from Dealers but I feel like we can make up for this in other ways later. I'll make a suggestion based on this idea once I check the feedback for this post. This question was prompted by the unreasonably large overlap between the classes as well as @Rebus's ammo suggestion. I feel it's unhealthy for unrelated classes to be so similar.
