I keep trying to think of some way to compromise this and Wyrmic staying in as well.

Perhaps this could be retooled as a Thalore specific class? Wyrmkin? Or make a new dragon type? Or perhaps try to work the concept into Draconians and use that?

You've finally got it up to a point where it's a distinctive and interesting class, even if people are iffy on it being a Wyrmic replacement, it should be used for something if it can be...

It might make sense to make this a Wyrmic, but retool the current Wyrmic concept to be like a Shaman or 'Drake Blade' or something.

High praise indeed! :shock:

Well I definitely feel I've got the design to reach the design goals allowing flexibility about element choice, without having to use multiple Claw/Breath talents. Which is really the main thing that bothers me with the current Wyrmic. The other niggle is having to take melee/ranged talents when I want to focus on ranged/melee. Which I guess this resolves too.

Current design pretty much forces you to invest in at least two elements. While I think that is a good thing to distinguish the class from other mono element centred classes, I don't overly like forcing players. Also, most Drakes are mono element. Also, this design only really has one locked category (Wild), with two possible extras (Blood and Blink). So I'm thinking another general Wyrmic Support locked category could be good.
Initial ideas for talent include Transformation, Summon Drakes and something like Cloud Seer. Also, I seem to have dropped the status resist bonus somewhere. :?

Ideally, I'd love to get this worked into the game as the Wyrmic class, as its much closer to the current class than earlier designs. I'm willing to compromise a little. If it doesn't get in, I could use the framework for some sort of Arcane Blade variant and hold a grudge forever :P .

Bump, too bad if a good design left forgotten

I'll probably get around to coding it as an alternative Wyrmic class at some point.
