Commence introduction: Hiya, I'm new to the forum. I usually don't post much about games pre-launch because I tend to get caught up in it and have way too high expectations before the game is out, and because most game developers don't really take note anyways. But in the case of wildstar, first of all I've already looked forward to the game for two years and think it looks better and better with every piece of information, and also, Carbine seems to really care what the community has to say. So I've decided to "allow" myself to be a bit of a pre-launch Wildstar fangirl and get my expectations up, because I feel that if any game can deliver, it's going to be this one. Introduction complete. Now to the point: Remember the Mastermind in COX? For years, me and my boyfriend have been hoping a game would make a minion master type class, one that went further than giving you one pet. One that would allow you to control your own little "gang" or robot army. (The important part here is: Controlling multiple pets simultaneously, not having access to multiple pets but only using one, or one type at a time) However, either this is very difficult to balance (I'm sure it is, really), or most game developers don't consider the possibility. But with the telegraph system in Wildstar I really think it would not only be possible, but for once the strange skills like swap places with your minion, battle formations etc that some games try to implement would make sense because of the strong visual indicators of what's going on on the battlefield. Minions wouldn't necessarily have to be capable of their own separate skills (though that could work well too), they could work together on skills like rain of bullets, trip wires, shield walls, decoys... And best of all, with the lore, technology and general feel of Wildstar the minions could be robots of various sizes, upgradeable and customizable. Perhaps each playable race could have their own minion type (looks-wise) creating a nice amount of variation. And just so it's said: I don't want a minion master class INSTEAD of a hunter type class with a single pet. I love having a companion on the battlefield. In the case of a single-pet class I'd want there to be as much personalisation and pet influence as possible, so the pet really becomes your best friend and trusted companion. That is not really necessary with a minion master, a minion is much more expendable after all. So, what do you think? Are we the only ones who have been missing our own private army in MMO's? Have you had similar ideas? What kind of minion class would you like?
