Final classlead round for 2019

Written by: Makarios, the Meticulous
Date: Tuesday, September 10th, 2019
Addressed to: Everyone


As the final three months of the year typically tends to be very busy for us, we are opening classleads for the final quarter of 2019 early. This should give us the opportunity to get ahead of things before things start picking up towards the end of the year.

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: I will be annoyed.
- 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. Classleads will be remaining open until this coming Monday (0 GMT on September 16th).

Note that I am not presently looking for upgrades to the magi, depthswalker, or runewarden classes. I will not rule out the possibility, but the argument for any such upgrade would need to be very compelling at this stage, given their already dominant status in Achaea's meta.

I look forward to reading your reports!

Penned by My hand on the 3rd of Sarapin, in the year 810 AF.
