Hey Everybody,


I have the fantastical opportunity to present our second DevConnect. The topic is…..Race and Class combinations.


As some of you may have heard, Carbine just might be working on some new race/class combos, and we are looking for some further feedback from all of you!


·         What are your thoughts on unlocking more Classes for each Race? (THAT GRANOK STALKER IS TO DIE FOR!)

·         Which Race and Class combinations would you like to see on Dominion?

·         Which Race and Class combinations would you like to see on Exile?


The rules remain the same as the first DevConnect on Faction Barrier. This DevConnect thread will be open from now until April 22nd, and it will be pinned in the General Discussion for the entire world to see. Please don’t hesitate to express your opinion and give us your focused feedback within this thread. The Dev team may jump in and offer our own thoughts/opinions as well.


I can’t wait for all the feedback and…..I look forward to welcoming you to the Chua family!

  • ALL OF THEM (srsly, as soon as you give mordesh esper (and you should give mordesh esper) you need to unlock everything else for everyone else)

Basically, whatever you do, I'm gonna need more character slots.




If you guys want to make all of the monies, release a race change token in the cash shop when you open these things up.

Trust me.

All of the monies.

  • Unlocking more Classes for each Race is as great idea, I think it will receive universal support from players who love and value customization and options.
  • Mechari Esper and Spellslinger, Draken Esper and Medic, Chua Stalker and Warrior.
  • ​Mordesh Esper, Aurin Engineer, Medic Warrior.

    (Prior list would be Aurin Medic > Else).

You may have noticed I left out Granok Esper, Spellslinger, and Stalker. This is because for lore reasons that a naturally occurring solid aggregate of minerals or mineraloids cannot shoot guns, use mind abilities, or stab things with claws. Rocks do not possess any of these abilities. This would simply not fit within the game or within any lore. They are simply rocks, however perhaps a new class could be introduced that allows you to use Granoks as a tool.

Edit: $$ Free money if you open up race/cass changes in the cash shop $$

Exterminate all chuas!  


Seriously though, I think its a good idea, the less restrictions and barriers like this in the game the better.  

Glad with the first changes on faction barriers, hope it is just the beginning!

I'd personally like to see Aurin Medics & Engineers.


Medics make the most sense of the two, because Medics help and assist people. Aurins are kind and want to help.


Engineers would just be a plus. Aurins and cute robots? Win / Win.

Mordesh Esper 


Tangentially, I would like to request that if you do open up more race/class combos to create something to let you change race. I would probably move a few characters to new races (like my aurin esper right now, probably to deshie esper if that happened)

1.  My thoughts:  best thing in the world :D  And you need to add Race Change if you open more class/race combos.


2. Draken Medic, Engineer and Esper.  Chua Stalker and Warrior.  Mechari Esper and 'Slinger.


3. Granok Stalker, Esper and 'Slinger.  Mordesh Esper.  Aurin Warrior, Engineer and Medic.


Well, basically all classes available for all races :P  But especially Chua Stalker and Warrior, and Granok Stalker :D

·         What are your thoughts on unlocking more Classes for each Race? (THAT GRANOK STALKER IS TO DIE FOR!)

I'd love some new race/class combinations. Just yes. I think the best way to go is to unlock combos that'd allow for the races missing a particular armor class to be able to roll that armor class. Also, some of them would just be cool.

I would absolutely love to see all races and classes be something one can do.

As a roleplayer, one of my characters has a plain old metal Shortsword that she can't actually use because it's an Aurin. And I would love to see a furious little Aurin running around with a small-ish sword trying to hit things with it in game. Mordesh Espers also jump to mind, I know a lot of people that want them. But I'd still prefer everything be opened up purely for player preference! There's a lot of things I've wanted to see and try, that aren't actually open as options.

Much like the last DevConnect, I am very happy to see this pop up to be discussed, thank you for considering such a topic for us all to talk about.

In all seriousness, I think it makes sense to favor the classes and races that currently have the fewest options available to them.  Draken, Aurin, and Granok all only have 3 classes to choose from.  It would make sense to give them another option, though I'd prioritize Draken and Granok over Aurin just based on the fact that Aurin is popular enough already.


As far as classes go, Esper obviously could use more options since only four races can choose it, with every other class being able to be selected by six races.


If we were being the most methodical, Draken and Granok Espers would make the most sense as it would bring two races up to four classes and put Esper on par with the rest as far as class/race combos go.


Of course, I doubt most people want to be methodical in this. ;)  If I had to pick the one I want to see the most, it'd be Mechari Spellslinger.
