    Hello!

    Foreword:

    For those of you playing or having played NWN2, you might have an idea what this is going to be.
    In NWN2, the Pale Master is a prestige class, some kind of death mage who is also an experienced spellcaster
    and the cleric is the strongest anti-undead class.

    Pale Master

    Counters high armor classes since Wither effect ignores armor.
    Will act like a spider (i.e. hide and wait for the enemy to come) because if its squishyness and it needs some attacks to stack the Wither effect.


    Carries grey leather armor. - Armor is supposed to be both: color representing the dark aspect of the class and making it easier to hide in dark corners.

    As master of the Undead, the Pale Master suffers from permanent hunger for fresh flesh, resulting in permanent Hunger II,.
    Once eaten enemy corpses, his hunger is satisfied for a short amount of time (~10 seconds?), his current hunger restored instantly and regeneration I for 5 seconds or damage I potion effect (damage = heal).
    His Necrotic Bone Shard is enchanted with death magic, resulting in Wither II on hit, increasing the level of Wither damage with each hit, up to Wither V.
    If someone dies under the effect of Wither, a Skeleton, Wither Skeleton or Zombie appears, depending on Wither level.

    Lv1: -
    Lv2: Zombie
    Lv3: Skeleton
    Lv4: Skeleton
    Lv5: Wither Skeleton

    As a servant of dark forces, the Pale Master is almost undead, resulting in Water Breathing, Poison immunity, Wither immunity, Smite extra damage taken and heal/damage potion swap.

    The Pale Master is able to summon a strong undead once per day. (The Pale Master has 1 Skeleton spawn egg.)
    Since the Pale Master likes graveyards and is a skilled gravedigger (no, hes not Claude), he carries an iron shovel and Cursed Sand (Soul sand)
    in order to rule the mass Graves of Minecraftia. He will spawn a Skeleton/Wither Skeleton upon death.
    The Pale Master will wear a wooden pickaxe.



    Cleric

    Counters Pale Master, Demon (strong against Zombies, Skeles etc. because of Smite), will otherwise used mainly as support.

    Carries full chain armor (except helmet)

    Clerics pray to a wide varity of gods and use divine power to either help the living ones or deads (free souls, watch over graves etc.)
    and are sworn enemies to the undead, hunting down members of dark cults, necromancers and of course our PALE MASTER.

    As a servant of holy forces, the cleric uses a Smite III/Fire Aspect I Gold Sword called "Holy Judgement" and has a Regeneration I aura (range ~3-5 blocks) for allies. Mainly as supporter, the Cleric carries Holy Water Splash potion of healing II), which is also known to banish the undead. Clerics wear a stone pickaxe and use Holy Stones (Glowstone) which protect them against the undead (damages 0.5 hearts per second to undead in a 1-2 block radius once placed)



    Please write a short feedback and metion if I have forgotten something.

    So Cleric is basically Medic with a whole bunch of things to counter one specific class.

    Yes and no.

    Cleric IS a counter against every undead, so it is strong against Necromancer (Zombies & Skeles) and especially strong against the Pale Master but it is rather a healer than a supporter, which Medic is since it has more effects. Cleric is not able to remove effects or poison enemies and does not have golden apples to use for self-purpose or to give away. Cleric is also more combat oriented than medic since it has a stronger armor and a slightly stronger sword but it breaks faster.

    my opinion is just that, although these classes may sound cool, i would suggest these classes to have (and be known for) a single primary ability. cleric sounds a bit too op with so many perks.

    other than that, im fine with these

    The primary ability of the Cleric is to be able to damage undead and to heal although I believe that Cleric is so situational that it will only be picked if someone else picks Necromancer/Pale Master.

    The design of the Pale Master is to be a steady danger for EVERYONE.
    The only Undead which obeys (and follows) the Pale Master is the mob summoned with the spawn egg.
    Players killed by the Wither effect will turn into Zombies/Skeles/Wither Skeles but those will attack everone except for other Zombies/Skeles/Wither Skeles.
    Even after its death the Pale Master may still doom players which are unlucky enough to face its remnants.

    Please note that after a VERY long time, the staff still haven't added any new classes, so yeah.

    Which may have multiple reasons:

    -Class suggestion descriptions too vague
    -Not worthwhile to write new classes
    -Not enough time (most likely)
    -Not enough people discussing about the classes to add/wanting the new classes so it is almost sure that they may be only rarely played which results in a waste of time.
    -Classes not balanced enough, resulting in more time to be spent because the admin team itself has to think about balancing it.

    I think it's mostly the amount of time it takes to code a battle class. Not all of the coders have that much free time and they do have a to-do list. Like adding in fire around the top of spawn if you go there by homeset. Sigh.

    While they do have their drunken mishaps, there are things they are working on, and the only reason LOB is almost never modified anymore is due to lack of a crispy. If they wanted to/had the time, they could re-write LOB in a way the non-crispies understand, so they can modify it. But they don't want to or have the time for it.

    Be careful. You don't want to be a Claude67, or an epicgod999...
