The Daily Grind: Which class would you just love to port from one MMO to another?

Earlier this summer, Standing Stone Game announced a brand-new and unique class for Dungeons and Dragons Online: the Alchemist. No, it’s not just another potion-brewing crafter; this class is a mage that literally chucks potions and flasks and bombs.

I freakin’ love this. We hardly ever see classes like this. This is part of what I wanted out of my Guild Wars 2 Engineer, honestly, and I don’t think I’ve played something that legit threw explosive flasks for damage since the last time I tried running a mad bomber type toon in Ultima Online, where it’s not nearly as viable as I wish it were. But I know darn good and well I’ll never dip my toes back into DDO again, so I’ll never get to play this. I can’t help but wish I could just port it to an MMO I do play.

Which class would you just love to port from one MMO to another?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

I would enjoy how the “summoner” archetype works from Allods Online in any other mmo. Healing myself my stealing the lifeforce of others while also playing a similar role to a WoW style Warlock is just too good. Oh and bards. Bards everywhere!

RIFT’s Chloromancer into any other MMO. Healing by dealing damage was fun. I’m hoping that FFXIV might do something like that for their next healer.

Bard class into WoW, Albion Online and any other MMO that doesn’t have a troubadour. Id also like to see constant Bard songs play via the old Bards Tale Game.

Reaching back…. the Metaphysicist from Anarchy Online. I don’t necessarily like pet classes, but the three different pets on this one made it a formidable class.

Illusionist from EQ2; Mesmer from GW/GW2; and Metaphysicist from Anarchy Online t0 … pretty much any other game. In my heart, I will always a support toon. Utility over glasscannon status any day of the week.

The captain class from LOTRO but don’t know if you could get that feel even if switched because the story and setting from LOTR just oozes the right atmosphere for those last stand moments. Anything like that in WoW? I’ve thought of going to Classic but only if I can get a feeling like that.

Inspired by Anstalt’s note about Orks: I want to play my Spider (Creep class) from LOTRO PvMP to Cyrodiil in ESO. I would love monster faction war in more games, but with way more vertical progression and story.
