    Default Where's the Arcane Iconic?

    We have the pally. I've seen plans for the divine, rogue, PDK fighter. but where's the arcane variant? If i've missed it, please hit me with a link. If there isn't one, just please tell me there's one on the way.

    On the topic of Epic TR'ing, so much whine-tarting in the official thread. Same dudes with 40+ posts og so much emo. Turbine, please don't try to reinvent the wheel. Leave Heroic TR'ing alone. It's your bread and butter and you don't want to have to recode how hearts and otto's boxes work. Just make Epic TR'ing take you back to LVL 20 and have us regrind to LVL 28 for some kind of epic past life feat. Leave our Destiny XP alone. Simple. All problems solved. Everyone is happy and you have a tenth of the coding to do now.

    Love,

    Default Hey, do not break the code!

    Of course there will be an Arcane Iconic in the future. but this is planned for the next Expsion. In order to make the most money out of the fan and player base. Presales adopters get the Arcane Iconic in advance. Together with the lv. 12 and lv. 28 Otyugh gold seal hire and a free +5 Stat Tome.

    The arcane iconic is the one you get when you take the rogue iconic and multiclass to wizard because pale trappers with evasion are delicious.
    Furthermore, I believe that the bugs and lag must be fixed.

    Default Arcane Iconics

    Or turn a Bladeforged into a Sorcerer/Paladin 18/2 split. That *is* the most common build for a Shiradi Sorc, isn't it?

    Default Gnome Illusionist

    my money is on a Gnome Illusionist being the arcane variant of Iconics, just as soon as they've milked as much cash as they can from this upcoming expansion.

    And to make life simple they'll just modify basic Halflings into Iconic Gnomes.

    We always told the devs that they should introduce Gnomes for the next playable race. Especially with FR. Just redress the halfling, shorter feet and pointier ears, other skin color and here we go.

    Give them time. They have to make arcanes useful again. At the very least make our DCs meaningful again and not something we simply dump for the cheesiest method of attacking.

    Its probably at the drawing board. I would imagine artists take longer time to draw a gnome with a wizard hat than enhanced the Illusionist wizard's specialist coding. Oh yeah, there is also the story...

    I would love trying a gnome illusionist though. Even got my Epic Illusionist Robe ready...

    There will be no arcane iconic because arcanes are too OP.
    That's why all they'll ever see are nerfs to their spells, broken mechanics and mob save inflation.
    And to think you could balance casters by simply making most damaging spells also needing a roll against spell resistance, just like pen and paper...

    You must be forgetting the <sacarsm> and </sacarsm> tags.
    It really depends on what kind of arcane casters that you see. Some of them seem OP because they spent 3 wizard past lives, 3 favored soul past lives, 3 cleric past lives, 3 barbarian past lives and 3 sorcerer past lives on their characters. I bet melee and ranged combatants will be as powerful if not more due to some of the juggernaut and fury shot monkcher builds.

    If you go to the regular PUG scene with a first lifer wizard or sorcerer; they aren't that great. Their DC aren't up to par; their low damage due to equipment, etc.; not factoring the broken wail spell and critical chance & damage. They probably just stand there all the time if they don't cast a damage spell. Since they do not have PRR and don't know about blur, displacement, stoneskin, they are probably dying a lot too without aggro control. Not to mention probably low hit points as well.

    Please note that in Pen & Paper there are Epic Spells which we don't have here while melee and ranged combatants have enjoyed their epic weapons and accessories which add to their damage.

    In Pen and Paper there are also more spells unlike this limited set, and spells that do not need spell resistance to affect monsters.

    Obviously it'll be a sexy female Tiefling Warlock!

    They're saving the arcane iconic for the release of the much anticipated Kobold Shaman playable race later in 2014.

    So I'm only kidding, but wouldn't that be awesome?

    Edit: I suppose it's technically divine, but with an arcane flavor. http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Shaman_%283.5e_Class%29

    Okay I have nukers and DC CC and Insta kill casters, I'll bite: how is clicking a button and watching 5 things die waiting for a 90 second cool down and doing it again, less "cheesey" than clicking a button many times, while 5 things take 90 seconds to die?

    After looking at the Shaman link, I hope they make something like that into a regular class, not an Iconic. It seems like the FvS to the Cleric's Druid.
