    To never see these words of white, beyond the smouldering page,
    Of the novel never written, exhumes a nameless rage.
    The sanctum of the shadows, unseen by the light,
    Holds the promise of tomorrow; A sun's first night.

    * It`s a rough example of a class, it misses autoattacks, " main " rotation skills. I decided to focus on skills above to give a better idea about the class, not to actually theocracy a whole ready up one. Also thats why skills miss actual damage numbers and stats like accuracy and etc. I would prefer all of that to actually competent balancing team instead of trying to do it myself.
    * I hope you would like my attempt at creating a male counterpart to Dark Knight.

    I like it though the color schemes not that good... I suppose this is the suggested counterpart for the Dark Knight.

    Its indeed intended as a counterpart for Dark Knight, but he is not same class, but just inspired by her. In my vision color schemes would be more like....black,white,light bluish. Since you know...ghosts, spectral energy, illusions XD

    Asians like that stuff too and that is a good thing...I guess
    *closely whispers into ear* more chances to get it released.

    The problem is, it falls into the same role as DK. You forgot all kinds of lingering exploitative mechanics that need to be built in to compete.

    Otherwise, its gonna have the same issues as the DK class...Which is piss poor performance for the effort required to enjoy it.

    Like I said its not finished. I just gave a rough idea. But I tried to give skill examples to make it feel different.
    Well, if we say DK, we think a magic assassin of sorts, right? I had a bit different idea for Spectral Dancer kit, if you look on skill examples again, you would see more control and saves. I was thinking more about him as frontline secondary attacker. Running behind initiators and jumping with them to control, make burst and jump out if something goes wrong kinda playstyle.

    My skill goal was to give him skill synergy, utility and easy to control kit. Making sure that you can play him successfully even on console.

    Yeah, totally agree. But I didn`t have an option! Because if I tried to do it myself, my maximum would be a stick figure. Haha..

    I believe all of BDO's current and future classes were pre-created. There are a total of 21 classes if you believe the image below.

    [​IMG]

    We currently have 18 released classes with the 19th being the female Guardian. They're not making up these classes as they go so you wont be getting this "Spectral Dancer". Not unless through some immense luck one of the last two remaining unknown classes turns out to be the same or similar to your suggestion here.

    Thanks, i tried to achieve number of things in this class.
    1) Male counterpart to a female only class ( Since we cant have male DK due " lore " reason, decided to independent from her one, but retain the " feel " )
    2) Appealing to males and females ( more audience, plus KR like this sort of stuff )
    3) Utility in skill kit ( Will not make class useless, means more chances people gonna stick to him buying stuff )
    4) Not hard to master ( More appealing then hard to master ones, which means more chances since Pearl Abyss desire for consoles and mobile )

    Nice idea.
    But ...
    ... if you ask me ....
    ... I vote for ...
    necro_x1.jpg
    ... a Necromancer as a counterpart for DK.

    No swords.

    Skills: Count down of death, summon zombies, skeletons, daemons / creatures, fallen player / adventurers / NPCs and ghosts, fear, mind control / remote control, telekinesis, shape shift, soul capture, nightmare, illusion, possession, curse, pestilence / plague, portal to hell, .... etc.

    Haha, nice one. But my warlock class suggestion wasnt even half popular like this DK one XD You can check it though. Haha

    Druid would be more fit as tamer counterpart, but who knows?

    That would be a great counterpart to the sorceress tho. It wouldn't copy her 1:1 and still be based purely on dark magic(maybe with light magic as awakening to spice things up, total opposite ya know?).
    Would enjoy spectral blader(the way I would want to call it tho) as the opposite of DK, I'm missing that kind of class :/

    I don't know, connection with nature is more something that belongs to the elvin race but yeah, a druid class wouldn't fit how the DK is currently seen. =)
