I know there's a forum for general game discussion, but I also know that a lot of people who frequent this forum are avid Game of Throne fans. So, would you play a Game of Thrones MMORPG? I am currently about halfway through the 2nd book and was thinking to myself how awesome of an MMO this series would make. I was trying to think of what classes you could make, thinking you would need at least 8 for some good diversity. Here is what I thought up so far.
Knight - melee DPS and tanks, wears heavy armor and uses a sword and shield
Sellsword - melee DPS, wears medium armor and either dual-wields or uses a two-handed weapon
Water Dancer - melee DPS and possibly an avoidance tank based off of Arya's "dancing teacher" uses a short sword and a dagger and wears light armor
Pyromancer - ranged DPS wears light armor and brews potions to use in battle like wildfire
Maesters - healers and possibly ranged DPS
Archers - ranged DPS
Ranger - beastmaster and melee DPS based off of Jon Snow wears medium armor and uses a single sword and no offhand
Maegi/Red Witch - healer and ranged DPS based off of the maegi who killed khal Drogo and the red woman that Stannis converts to
I only put the Water Dancer as an avoidance tank because I thought you would need more than one tank class. I added the maegi/red witch because I thought you would need a 2nd healing class.
So what do you guys think? Would you play an MMO based off of Game of Thrones? I haven't fleshed out a story or what factions there would be or how PVP would work, just the bare bones of classes.
