The Mysterious Kickstarter Class... (Just a place to ponder)
« on: April 17, 2013, 03:34:32 PM »
So, I was wondering if anybody else here was similarly curious about the Kickstarter class; I'd guess it'll either be kept under wraps until near-release or it's still being decided/developed. Either way it'll remain a mystery to us for a good while longer. Still, that doesn't stop us from discussing possibilities/making jokes about crazy mechanics it could have!

I'm personally hoping there's at least a little humor injected into its mechanics, maybe you can absorb a portion of collected gold into an ammo stash and use it to throw "pledges" at enemies so hard that it does damage. XD

I don't know, do you guys have any thoughts on this class? I can't wait to play and share it :P

Meta!

I sadly won't have access to the Kickstarter class (:() until it can be shared but I'm hoping for a class that allows you to revive a dead enemy as an ally or something. I don't know, I think that would be cool.

I still want the Witch to make it in. I don't want to get my hopes up, because I really don't expect it to happen, but I still really want it.  :-\

As for a little humor, what if the Witch's ability turned an enemy (or a group of enemies) into another kind of enemy randomly. Use it on a ghost, POOF! it's a rat now! Use it on a bat, POOF! it's an undead delver, whoops! Also throw in the chance for it to be something like a worthless bunny or a lit bomb and things could get even more interesting.

Hmm, I haven't put much thought into it.. but I'd also imagine something with a bit of humor involved, or maybe a class that does something unique that helps our future game play, like the Cartographer!

I think it would be a great idea to have a class that has a random spell that turns things into other things, kind of like, throwing a bottle of snake oil at the enemy, and it turns into a turnip, or a cat, or 1/2 its regular size..ohh, it could either halve or double the size of the enemy hehe

I would not mind seeing a summoner class of some kind.

...maybe you can absorb a portion of collected gold into an ammo stash and use it to throw "pledges" at enemies so hard that it does damage. XD

Perhaps an overly aggressive merchant/trader.

I believe they talked about a cartographer in the last day livestream, I would love to see that class available.  :)

If it's going to be one of the classes they showed on that Livesteam way back when then I'd say either The Royal because I like the concept of some one of power getting thrown in or cartographer due to potentially having the most unique game play style.

I asked during the livestream if the Kickstarter class was present among the shown classes when they were showing them off and somebody answered that it wasn't I'm pretty sure, so as far as I know we still haven't seen any art or heard any official name for the class; at least I think that's the case.

  I was also thinking The Royal as well.  I remember them talking about it, but cannot remember exactly what they planned to do with it.  I like the idea of either one of power getting thrown down there like you said, or going down their on his own for his own glory..or to escape Spirewatch?

Didn't Baker say something like that "far to the right is an idea for the backer class" in stream? If that's true than this class would be the Jester.

Ahh, A Jester would be sweet!  Could do some crazy attacks and have random/odd abilities!

Also, I could total imagine a Jester being thrown into jail. ^^

I remember the furthest to the right from what I saw was a blob of color XD I think that three or four of the rightmost classes were just blobs of color at the time. They haven't had a livestream since the end of the Kickstarter did they? If so then I'm pretty sure that was the case.
