If making classes "more unique" is the goal, what about giving all classes the Shai treatment

    Shai got free gathering and alchemy skill, what if all classes had one little bonus like this?

    Wizard +20% chance to gain knowledge
    Witch +10% chance to gain higher-grade knowledge
    Berserker +200 Weight limit
    Ranger Increased resources gathered from hunting
    Archer +20% Hunting experience gain
    Tamer +10% mount and pet experience gain, pet food +20% increased recovery
    Warrior +1 passive energy recovery, -50% reduced movement speed when encumbered
    Valkyrie 10% Chance of not consuming energy from energy-consuming activities
    Sorceress +10% chance to gain knowledge, +5% chance to gain higher-grade knowledge
    Kunoichi +10% health and strength XP gain, +5% movement speed
    Ninja +10% breath and strength XP gain, +5% movement speed

    ...And so on... (Feel free to help with the rest, Musa/ Maewha etc.)

    Uniqueness of classes doesn't have to be all about combat, and so when I learned about the Shai thing I thought this was pretty cool, and something I've been thinking was missing from this game for a long time compared to other MMOs I've played.

    By "Shai treatment" I thought you were going to say things like remove 50% if their skills, get rid horse combat skills, add quests lines with rewards they can't use, etc...

    I think your ideas would be more acceptable to the players.

    Don't forget that they should make all underwear bleed through all outfits too.

    Interesting take, my idea to it:
    Instead of limiting it to classes why not give players the choice as a perk to choose from in character creation?

    Just give it to class or choose perk at character creation ?... ehm... like for free ?
    No no no... but they could implement new pearl item, lets say... Secret Book of New Sun !!
    that gives:

    +20% chance to gain knowledge
    +10% chance to gain higher-grade knowledge
    +200 Weight limit
    +20% Hunting experience gain
    +10% mount and pet experience gain, pet food +20% increased recovery
    +1 passive energy recovery, -50% reduced movement speed when encumbered
    10% Chance of not consuming energy from energy-consuming activities
    +10% breath, health and strength XP gain, +5% movement speed
    etc..

    Yeah that should work... and almost no development time since function is there. 15 days for 1250 pearls... perfect solutions! I'm genius! You'are welcome!

    its bad indeed, you should request a 100pearl expense if you want to use a skill from your character, i mean, you can use your skill "for free".. in what world are you living here ?

    first they should increase chest sliders and make all costumes available for all classes.

    Ram Horn Witch for Witch when!

    Good suggestion. The skills of course would have to be discussed but I like the general idea

    Because that would have nothing to do with "trying to make classes more unique" which is what PA said they're trying to do with class balancing?

    And because it's worldbuilding and "fluffy" to have for example extra weight limit attached to the big strong Berserker, and knowledge gains to the occultists.

    It actually does. More freedom for the player to customize their character to fit their playstyle is uniqueness too.
    Now, whether which uniqueness PA targets is another thing. Maybe they want uniqueness in hardlocking classes to certain things.
    I can see reason behind that but personally think player choice creates attachment and joy playing ones character more.

    I vaguely remember lahn being meant to be the "dancer" class. In which case she should have dances. I will go down with this ship.
