We spoke with some of the developers of World of Warcraft. What they think about a possible bard class, we found in the interview.
Interview with Michael Bybee
We had the opportunity to speak with some employees from Blizzard about World of Warcraft. In our Interview with Michael Bybee, a Senior Game Producer, we talked about classes, which could get WoW in the future, maybe.
We asked this question: “Which of this conventional RPG are courses greatest fit into WoW: necromancer, иerserker or bard?”
“When you consider this Berserker, then that really is something that is well-represented from fury warriors. In addition, the necromancer – there is a lot of small pieces that are in the passing knight or the warlock. These two are so well represented.”
This also corresponds to Blizzard’s statements from the past, a necromancer will be different from death knights and warlocks.
“From what you said, the bard is just about the closest thing World of Warcraft has not yet. We aren’t currently talking yet ready for a character class and plan to definitely not. But simply for the pleasure of this: I feel a bard would increase the match a lot of character”.
New classes as new bags in WoW
But a new class would always bring problems. As the Lead Environment Artist Ely Cannon to bear in mind:
“We just got a big revamp of all the classes behind us. In the case of something, you have to consider the balance. ”
What would you make of it, to be able to at some point as a bard in battle and to strengthen the players with healing or fire the songs? Or as you would a bard class in World of Warcraft design? In the event of something you have to consider the Balance.”
What would you make of this, to be able to and to strengthen the players or fire the tunes? Or as you would a bard class in wow design?
