<p>Look at this interview it looks as though Beastlords were part of the original EQ2 plans but were pulled out! <img src="/smilies/c30b4198e0907b23b8246bdd52aa1c3c.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p> <a href="http://p089.ezboard.com/flordsofchaosthenextgenerationfrm10.showMessage?to picID=55.topic" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://p089.ezboard.com/flordsofcha...opicID=55.topic</a></p><p> "GWWW: Any classes we wont see in EQ2? Any new classes we will see?" "Wendigo: We are still debating about the monk class, the new design of the beastlord for EQ2 has all the power of a monk, but they have their pets, which they now must quest for. One of the coolest aspects is the warder is player chosen from a crop of animals, each with strengths and weakness, so it becomes much more complicated."</p><p>BRING BACK THE BEAST! </p>

A lot of things where promised back in 2003... Not everything made it in. And the devs have allready made it pretty clear that there are not currently looking at adding any more classes

Doesn't sound like it was 'just promised' sounds like it was tried out.

Look at the old screen shots... there are zone that didn't make it to the game (out side and inside zones) there are armor models the didn't make it to the game as well.

i think consolidating the classes would be much better idea than adding new ones.  if they did that then i wouldn't mind seeing beastlords too much but otherwise we have too many classes filling too few roles as it is.

LOL The ironic thing is that a couple of things in there really did come to pass. An AA was put in that let you heal more with bandages, although not just for monks, and "dragonmen" were introduced called drakkin. Ooooo, get out the foil hats! Whoever wrote that can see the future! <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

*yawn*  nothing lost unto EQ2 here.  make a necro and pretend your rotting pile of refuse is a cute cuddlely wuddlely tiger wiger snoogie woogie and call yourself a beastlord.  People play Teir`dal in game and pretend they are drow.  /shrug

As much as i would love to see the beastlord come back, it cant happen. First of all like posted previously, there are waaayyy too many classes in this game right now for too little of roles. The game started out as Freeport vs. Qeynos which meant nothing other than where u gated too. This caused splitting of several classes that didnt need split. There is no need for 2 monks, no need for 2 enchanters, 2 rogues, 2 bards, 2 shamans, 2 warriors (zerker should be a axe weilding dps), 2 druids, hell you could maybe even combine the clerics.

<p>Hmm combine the classes! Let Illusionists charm!   Give zerkers the Guardian armor set!    Give Assassins all the utility of swashbucklers!</p><p>I'm sold on the idea!</p>

lets see SOE said that guardians and zerkers were te only class that could use vanguard armor will that was a lie.  Said that gaurdians were the best tanks because of the ability to wear vanguard armor.  The knight classes had certain attacks that were only usable with a longsword and a shield to go along with the fact that there "knights" where did that go?  This game has changed so much from drawing board and when it went live.  The idea behind this game was great but it has changed hands and been chopped up so many times that it was lost but it is still a great game and hopefully gets better as time goes on.

yes a long time ago (back in beta) there was a 5th armor type.  The armor types were cloth, leather, chain, plate, and vanguard. However in beta vanguard was removed, I cant remember why perhaps someone else who was in beta can. Some armor that is in the game has vanguard as part of its name but it is still plate armor.  And no Berserkers were never able to wear it, and it was never said that they could the highest they could wear was plate.  Guardians, the cleric classes and I think the crusader classes could all wear vanguard.

I think there should have been 1 of the druid, shaman, cleric, monk, rogue (swashy + brig), bard, and enchanter. From there they should have added a few NEW classes.., but its too late for that.

<p>Umm... ok how many times had SOE said no to beastlords or any new classes. Hmm we have 24 thats more then eq1 has. And if they cant jsut introduce one class theyd have to at LEAST intorduce 3 (1 good 1 evil 1 neurtal) or 6 and have 2 of each of the 3 factions. That would bring us to 27 or 30 Classes. That's QUITE alot. Not to mention differnt spell lins and AA lines for the 3 or 6 new classes. And I just dont see it hapening. Last i heard SOE might consider doing another class untill all old classes are ballanced eq4 wll be out before that happens. Cross your fingers for beastlords in eq3 cuz i dont see it happening in eq2. </p>

Guys, please be respectful about this. </span></span></p><p><span style="color: #ff33cc"><span style="font-size: small; font-family: comic sans ms,sand">If you search the forums, you can see that there is a reason that beastlords haven't been added to EQ2. They have a hard enough time balancing the current classes. Does this mean NEVER? Well, a dev has been quoted as saying "...when all other classes are completely balanced..." ... They still aren't completely balanced and they might never be. Try to be more understanding of the devs - sure, suggest away that Beastlords return. Heck, I would LOVE to play a Beastmaster. Although, I would want a sparkly pink squirrel named 'Rabies' as my pet... (Sorry, just imagine that image... an orc being mauled by a Fae's pet squirrel. Oi, I would so love that... Hahaha!) At any rate... they have their reasons. They have reasons for every expansion and every system or content update.</span> </span></p>

Beastlords did not come out till Shadows of Luclin.  No idea why they should come live during a Kunark expansion.

Beware of the Beastlord haters, joking. I played a Beastlord for 4 years in EQ1 and would love to see it come back and not become a forgotten class and fade a way in to the past. The reasons giving on why there is no BL in EQ2 are very poor and carry huge gaps in the lore. I wish they would just say , We would not know how to balance the Beastlord , so we dont wanna put in the time and hard work. P.S. Beastlord will live on in our hearts forever.

<p>Blech, more wanna beastlord threads.</p><p>I hope all of you reallize that if they were to add beastlords to EQ2 they wouldn't  be the uber class they were in EQ (unless SOE decides to poo on the other 24 classes). They'd probably be a lower dps monk with a perma controllable pet, or perhaps charmed like coercer pets. Likely fun, but not the gods they were considered at one point in EQ1 history (which is a good thing =p)</p><p>I still hope it  is a long time before they even try to bring another class. They are having enough trouble with the balancing and usefulness at all levels of play of plenty of the classes we already have. Adding another would just be foolish at this time.</p>

I'd take a nerfed BL any day.  Maybe it wouldn't be a badass, but it would be fun.

The Beastlord class was never overpower, people just wanna play the class that they came to love in EQ1. No one is asking for a over power class. Why even post if you dont want to see or play a Beastlord in EQ2 (Finora) ? BL was never considered a God, it was a melee damage dealing ,with a hand full of useful spells and a great pet for dps and off tanking when able. We were great solo and in groups and ok in raids. I just hope that the class does not going away forever.
