Dark Myr: Paladins + Shaman

    Paladin obviously makes the most sense, as they can be clerics and warriors. Shaman fits due to their previous water affinities and how shaman heal with Water spells. At least that's my take. I could see that because the human can be everything, how the Dark Myr would be the evil reflection of that. Here's to hoping that there will be some tweaks to the race/class matrix prior to launch! Anyone else feel this way?

    I kind of like the idea for Dark Myr society where someone casting aside the customs of the cleric order (and thereby the much beloved Syronai) to claim judgement in their own hands to distribute as they see fit as being considered heresy and an affront to the memory of Syronai. 

     

    As for Shaman, I don't know. Shaman seems to fit more to me than Druid for them.

    I think a lot of us want some tweaks to the race/class matrix, but I doubt we will see that for several years.  Allowing races to be other classes will be implimented to increase player interest.

    I've been thinking about this thread for a week and finally have an opinion. 

    Paladin: Yes

    “As I lay with my face against the sands, I saw the Nythirian Guard with their twin tridents grasped for battle, hovering below the surface. In my near paralysis, face half under the water and one eye above, I betook the whole of them in perfect battle formation, firm against the death burning up within their bodies. I saw their skin turn red as the breath dried out of them in the acrid underwater breeze, their pose unyielding as statues. I could only lie still, my body just beginning to lose the deep cold of a life beneath the waves. Yet I could not stop from weeping.”


    Shaman: No

    Becuase the Myr are of Issul and for Issul. They're collectively focused on their own future.

     

    Update:

    It occurrs to me only tonight that the Dark Myr can't be righteous judges (Paladins).  Not because they murdered their creator, but for the same reason they wouldn't make particularly good Shamans... they're too focused on their goal of conquest and returning to glory...

    "...the Dark Myr have descended like the ancient leviathans they were born to destroy."

    So I'm back to Paladin:  No

    1)  The Dark Myr didn't murder Syronai.  The Nythirian Red did it, and they are not part of the Dark Myr (who were outraged by that act)

    2)  While being driven by a desire conquest might be generally descriptive of the Mry, their society is not a monolith.  It's perfectly reasonable to expect individuals within Myr society to value different goals to different degrees, especially ones that belong to a religous order.  I can imagine the motto of a Dark Mry paladin to be Captain America's line from Avengers: Endgame-- "Some people move on... not us"
