    Wouldn't make sense given it would be easier to give it to ranger . Given how there's a male ranger in our game goes kinda tells

    Lahn isn't here yet, they will wait before announcing anything, even a mirror class.

    Not even.

    In fact I would say it’s 99% a male elf. Why?

    I’m guessing that PA is treating this like warrior/valk instead of striker/mystic.
    Most of the differences can be attributed to male strength vs female agility

    1. Crossbows require a ton of strength to load. It was common to ground a crossbow and use a wind up mechanic by planting it with your foot. A bow also requires strength to use, but I’d say less than loading a crossbow on the move, which I envision this class doing.

    2. A sword could be the masculine counter to rangers dagger. Honestly if you look at warrior vs valk you could say that warrior uses a longsword vs valks shortsword. The difference could just be PA making sure people are forced to do a full reroll and spend on those artisans.


    3. We got a glimpse at a male elf in dreighan which could hint their debut.

    4. If you want to be cynical about game company laziness creating a dwarf character model that would have to have a ton of new animation is a lot harder than altering existing human male models with pointy ears.

    Hm.

    As a Ranger main - I wouldn't mind it being a Dwarf. In fact, that could probably get me to level a class higher than 56 again.

    Looking forward to it, no matter what it actually is.

    It doesn't mean they will do the same now, it doesn't appear like good advertising to me. Mystic came too late for some reason, they couldn't do differently.

    honestly they had said they wouldn't put out any new classes for a while anyways because they wanted to focus on more content so the whole thing is a massive disappointment in that regard. To top it off mystic still was a success so I wouldn't put it past pearl abyss to do it again considering this is already them going back on the "no new classes for a while" statement.

    this sums Pearl Abyss up pretty nicely [​IMG]Idk who to specifically credit that image to >.> but I didn't make it.

    They also said, long ago, that they weren't going to make counterparts anymore cause they were planning to do always something new, then Mystic showed up. I don't see much coherency in these people... :P

    a very fair comment lol and the whole "we aren't going to nerf anybody" thing :/ they sure go back on a lot of the things they say and ignore the community a lot at PA, though it seems like they take any slightly harsh critique as a personal attack so I'm not surprised.

    No shade to daum though, they seem to be doing their best to work with a difficult provider.

    True that they seem to take criticism on a personal level, I have this feeling too :|

    Yes, I guess they are trying their best. They risk to lose credibility if they don't, also.

    Especially cause they have the base male ''ranger'' since 2015.

    It's probably a male elf.

    @Topic

    I'm really excited about that, i have been waiting for this since 2015, i'm just sad cause i recently bought a TET Dande for my Striker ( he is my alt).

    I hope they announce it as soon as possible.

    I feel like a full ranged class is something the community has been asking for for a while(for for...english is lovely) so I guess this could be good in that way and if it is a male elf, that would also be interesting(though they seem to offer very little variety in male body types aside from wizard and zerker and styles which is upsetting so hopefully this won't just be another standard male if it is. It'd be nice to make a pretty elf lol all elves are supposed to be pretty, not handsome).

    One concern though right off the bat is that dps type classes seem to be a bit at a disadvantage with the DR buffs incoming and tanky classes who are capable of extremely high burst damage, it'll be interesting to see if this class is even viable on release or if it turns out like Lahn where most people don't pvp with it because it sort of flopped.

    If this class turns out to be a solid ranged only class, I will start spending money on this game again.

    HEAR ME PA!!! I WILL PAY YOU TO MAKE THIS CLASS GOOD!!!

    I'm with you there, except I am only lvl 61 with 2k sp (even though my information on the forums doesn't seem to want to update...).
