Pirate / Bucc Revamp ideas

Post  Nivernel on 2012-10-14, 4:17 am


So here I am posting my Ideas for a Bucc revamp, yes I know we already got a revamp but sadly I disagree with what we got, so I am going to post my own ideas and work on them so that they seem fair to the rest of the community.
Story:
So we all know that pirates got revamped in v.115 "Mutiny" update, The update saddens me though, since the time that I had started playing I was always inspired by the pirate class, starting when a Marauder named RyanIIX saved me from my early fate stuck in Sleepywood with no way out, doing Dojo with my friend RyanIIX, being inspired as he defeated Alishar. Pirates have always inspired me, these were in my newbish days when I didn't know how to train... in an attempt to achieve my goal as soon as possible I made a Blaze wizard knowing that I would get meteor shower at Lv100 instead of Lv120, and that these skills were considered over powered and were ultimate skills for leaching another character. unfortunately shortly after the Visitor event I met my early end to that dream when I got hacked, in the highest of my peak I lost it all. I quit immediately without a word just shutting off maple and continuing my day as if nothing happened. Though I came back when I heard about Big Bang, the update that would make training a thing of the past and make my goal ever closer. Though I didn't want to go back to Scania, for Scania was much too overpopulated, so I started a new life in the new server, Zenith. I was especially excited about the new server since you would get a bandana with +18 all stats at Level 70 for free! so I made myself a Pirate once again heading for the dream I once had. astonishingly I hit level 70 quite fast and thought... well I liked my ice lightning mage as well I might as well make an i/l mage and get the hat on him as well! so I did, yet there was still time in the event for ANOTHER hat and Battle mages would be released soon... yay for dark bishops! ^^ in the end I got 3 Zenith Bandanas. anyways lets skip the rest and get to the point, after alot of hard work and 36% str when I was finally getting close to my goal, Nexon revamped the pirates. Playing as a post big bang Buccaneer was hard, we were weaker than the other classes people didnt care for us and our skills just werent cutting it. we NEEDED a revamp, but what Nexon gave us... was a new life with something different... they traded our styles for damage and slight mobility, We no longer deserved the name "Brawler" we are now wannabe mages it seems... I tried posting this before but got swamped with work and was unable to finish before my post was locked and further development was halted. so I'm back to finish what a started and hopefully finish it right.

2015 edit: I think the ms delay should be just slightly longer to prevent i-frame abuse...Do i-frames even count anymore? dont bosses inflict % damage that ignores all immunities now?...actually I probably need to modify a lot of the i-frames on these skills... it would be pretty lame to be able to just sit at the feet of a boss spamming one skill without having to worry about taking damage.

It's ok..but a lot of the stuff in the 3rd-4th job comes off practically god-like. Nobody wants that.
Imagine a game full of phantoms. Oh wait, that happened. And nobody liked it.

I don't understand... whats making it god-like? you mean because its overpowered? tell me if I'm wrong but from my view I think your talking about Stun Mastery and the AoE skills Tidal Wave and Storm, also you might be going off about our insane amount of speed boosts. "140% at 3rd job, 180% at 4th job, and an insane skill that allows you to move at 275% speed with limitations." tell me what general style is giving you these vibes, I don't want to make a class people are uncomfortable with. If your worried about Ks'ing maybe I should make another post for that issue, because in my opinion Ks'ing is ENTIRELY another issue on its own.

Well, not all of us hated it. I loved it. Empress with lvl 200 phantoms was so easy. Phantom Hatred DEBUNKED.

Sigh...

Post  Nivernel on 2015-09-16, 2:32 am

Well it's been 3 years since I made this post and reading it again fills me with so much nostalgia. it also drives me mad that Synergis never told me what looked god-like to him considering I poured days and days of critical thinking into this(I was spending time with my grandfather who had no computer, internet, or other means of modern entertainment. Meaning I could either read books, write things, or draw... funny that I chose to write when writing is one of those things that drives me to theoretical tears(bad learning experience as a child & I still have not figured out how to grip my pencil more loosely...) I did all the math to make sure it didn't have overwhelming differences over other classes, in the end I still thought that Luminous would be the best for mob control, and either Kaiser or Zero for bosses... Though I certainly wanted some eye candy and an unstoppable pirate feeling(and the in-between Bosser/mobber feeling like old times). I can recall the troll that called me out as an "oxymoron" for using the phrase "flash jump-like skill" when I meant "Mobility skill". and at the time you would be mad to have a class without teleport or flash jump (most would complain about how long the character takes to get around)
