I have long held that Wakfu offers the most original and indeed truly unique classes across the entire span of the MMO genre, but this week, I’ve started to think that Aion, of all games, might be giving Ankama a run for its money. With the launch of 7.0 in the EU version of Aion this week, the MMO’s Artist class got a new spec: the Painter. Painters literally paints to “fend off their opponents with Paint Rings that fire paint at the enemy” – big ol’ splashes of color. How cute is this? I can’t say as I’ve ever seen anything like that before, but damn, I’d love to. How many of y’all are sick of the same old warrior, priest, mage, scout archetypes?
What would you say is the most original, creative, or unique class in all of the MMO genre? Yes I know you can’t have the “most unique,” but you know what I mean! Let’s gather all the best ones up here!
