Now hear me out, I know we just got blaster a few months back. I made this topic to read some suggestions on theoretical classes on existing groups. For example Nova, which has a warrior and pirate class. Another group like the Resistance which have almost all 5 classes, I will not count Xenon because I see it as a unique class and not part of the branching paths (I know Nova and Sengoku also have the character specific creation selection, though still). I would like to hear people's thoughts on what new class they would like to see, as well as ideas on how they would work, what type of play style they would have and what skills would they use?

What I would like to see is a legitimate monster class. I already know there was a Pink Bean class also The Demon does not count since he is Resistance. But still a full on group of different types of monster classes. They could use skills monsters use. Also instead of job advancing they can get "promoted" with starting at "Mob" to "Boss" at the end of the advancement. But this just my opinion. Please share some ideas If you have any.

    Ayame is such cool looking pirate though, the whole concept was already done in JMS and it's only been used for an event so far.

    Demon isn't even resistance, his role was replaced by Blaster. If demon is still resistance even after Blaster's release, then so is Xenon.
    More classes is just too much for this game, there is only so many different takes that you can do with a class, and MapleStory has basically already fulfilled nearly all of them. More classes would just create a "samey" feel to the game. I mean heck, I already believe in my own opinion that Blaster is just a pretty bland, overly flashy class.
    They should put the efforts into something else that would be good for the game, like more interesting areas.

    honestly, i'd like to see some freindstory classes that are linked to the explorer branch, although there's already more than enough classes to play as currently, and we could definitely wait a good while before introducing more...

    yes I know the game is over saturated with classes but this is just for fun I don't expect any new classes to come until long LONG time passes.

    I'd like a friendstory job... mainly because Kinesis stoyline feels incomplete and a lot can come out of it...

    Playing as Edea (? Nova mage?) might be fun lol. Might be hard to write her into a storyline, though. Maybe Velderoth (Nova...thief?) might be easier?

    Really just want the Explorer or Nova storylines to continue.

    There's still plenty of regional lore which can be expanded upon through new characters. The tricky bits comes in developing innovative mechanics for the new class.

    Remember Rondo from your small circle of explorer friends from Maple island? We get a small glimpse into his backstory during a sidequest, but never really diving further into his origins. (I won't spoil it here)

    Here is a Nova Magician class design I made which not only utilizes a creative support/saboteur mechanic, but also indirectly elaborates further on Rondo.

    Exactly this ^^ Btw, Ayame wasn't from event, but a permanent content. I consider event as temporary stuff lol. People who want try Ayame, just do Princess No prequests and playing as Ayame (party leader) in Princess No alter dungeon where we farm Hieizan Temple key . The event quest we had when that content came out was to get Princess No damage skin. Plus one medal quest.

    The only logical class I wish to see is Claudine's from the resistance, I know it is a thief and I would love some back story on how she was trained or if she is indeed a master thief

    Congrats on the four-month necro, Tribal. You ought to take note of when the last post was before adding your own.

    I really want them to finish 5th job first (I'm sick of the one skill every six months thing) before making more, but I want to see the Nova story continued with the mage, archer, and thief classes eventually. It leaves off with no distinct ending.
    I'm seconding the Black Mage helping class. Maybe some mage class (I know, mage classes are 'common', but they're my favorite) that fights based on draining monster hp or something.
    And I would still like to see a Puppeteer class. Maybe even a specific one (Francis), because aside from some minor things, we know little about him. Before Black Heaven, they were kind of telling us things, but they've just stopped.
