Classleads Open!


Now’s your chance to submit those problems and requests you have with the various abilities in Achaea. Whether they’re submissions for change, balancing, or removal, Classleads are your what you need!

The classlead process is how we balance classes and add new abilities to skills as appropriate, and is generally the time when you can get your voices heard on issues of combat balance. 

For those of you unfamiliar with the classlead process (or who would just like a refresher), here are the basics:

Classleads are anonymous.
– Each person can submit up to five classlead reports. Please do not utilise alternative characters to bypass this limit.
– Your reports should supply reasoning alongside the perceived problem: if something is too strong/weak, you should always state why. It’s best to avoid drawing comparisons to other classes, although sometimes this is appropriate. Use your best judgement!
– You should attempt to supply multiple solutions (where applicable – some cases are fairly cut and dry).

There are full details along with command breakdowns under HELP CLASSLEADS and the CLASSLEAD command. 

So, what kinds of things can you suggest via classleads?
Essentially, classleads are specifically for combat balance, whether that be addressing things which are perceived as too strong or too weak. Thematic options can sometimes be appropriate, but these are almost always better served going via the ideas system.

With that in mind, given it has been a little while since we’ve had a classlead round, I will be leaving the submission phase open until 0 GMT on the 15th of January.
