    What do you think of them? Do you like them? I'm also curious if they'll be animated as in EQ, which might make the symbol more clear.

     

    My take on the symbols:

    Cleric: Hammer and ?? What is that other thing? A shield? An altar?

    Crusader: No idea what to make of this. Looks a bit like two hands protecting a ... book stand?

    Warrior: Sword and shield...or helmet wings? Still a clear symbol.

    Dire Lord: Absolutely no idea what this symbol is supposed to express...Darth Vader when looking through a keyhole??

    Ranger: Crossbow and arrow, the signet of the class. That's welll enough, although I don't understand the things under the arrow...looks like animal heads with their mouths open?

    Rogue: Crossed daggers and drop of blood (or poison?). Well done symbol.

    Monk: The big eye of jin-jang? Another well done symbol.

    Summoner: Quite strange symbol. The top could symbolize a water molecule (H20), then lightning for air...is there more to it?

    Enchanter: An illusionists mask. Clear symbol, well done.

    Wizard: The flame in a brazier. Also clear and well done.

    Druid: A flower pod, or blossom? Nice but nothing I'd associate with a druid at first thought.

    Shaman: The top end of a shaman's ritualistic staff? I think this one is quite well done.

     

    What do you see in those symbols?

    Cleric: Hammer and Alter

    Crusader: Hammer and castle Keep

    Warrior: Sword and Shield

    Dire Lord:

    Ranger: Sword and Arrow with what looks like bird beaks

    Rogue: Daggers dripping with poison

    Monk: No idea

    Summoner: Could be an elaborate staff head

    Enchanter: Kinda reminds me of the masks that the Ritualists used in Guild Wars 2

    Wizard: Staff with flame on top

    Druid: Horns from an animal perhaps deer/elk

    Shaman: Totem

    Ranger:  Bow w/ Arrow and 2 swords back-to-back (represents dual-wield perhaps)

    Roguer:  Daggers dripping poison or blood.

    What I see:

    Cleric: Hammer and altar, or perhaps Hammer and Temple-type building (or maybe a hammer and the Celestial Boundary, with a small window through it)

    Crusader: Helm with hammer-shaped cut-out

    Warrior: Sword and shield

    Dire Lord: Hood-shaped helm with diagonal eye slits and triangular nose guard

    Ranger: Elaborate bow (with stylized open-mawed animals on either side) with arrow, pierced vertically by a sword

    Rogue: Crossed daggers and a drop of poison

    Monk: A symbol of balance (yin-yang based) contained in a perimeter (symbolizing the balance inside the monk)

    Summoner: Elemental symbols (water/elemental) perhaps as a staff head

    Enchanter: A mask with a third eye

    Wizard: Flame in a brazier

    Druid: A mask (or just a symbol, can't decide) made of elk-like horns, a bird, and a third eye (I may be getting the third eye in this from the description stating "see into the heart of Terminus", because the top bit seems heart-shaped with a central core)

    Shaman: A dream-catcher or a pellet drum/rattle drum

    I don't actually think we are using them anymore, which is why we utilised them for forum symbols as you can see here, on the sign up page: https://www.pantheonmmo.com/join/sign_up/

    I'm confused, are we talking about the same symbols Kilsin? I meant these here: https://www.pantheonmmo.com/#section3

    I think those on the page you linked were used much earlier iirc?

    Well while we have you here @Kilsin, spill the beans!  What insight can you offer from a dev persepctive on this topic.  Most of these I like quite a bit; a few I'm still not sure on, even if I knew what they were supposed to be (though that would certianly help!).  Are you able to fill in some of the holes? 

     

    Thanks bud!

    It wouldn't be right for the "Crusher of Dreams" and "Keeper of the Beans" to spill any my friend, I would lose my precious titles! ;)

    You guy's are doing a good job of guessing, keep at it and when you get totally stuck I will see if I can shed some light (after I actually find out myself lol)

    I would say the cleric is now a hammer and a book

     

    Cursader might be 1 and 2-haneded blunt weapons

    Hammer and tome I think is a safe guess for the Cleric.  

     

    I'm wondering if the Crusader symbol isn't just a shield with the order's signet/crest.

    Anyone think that the symbols are also arranged by column/row, signifying some sort of unifying theme or type?

    Ex. If you look at the short descrptions per column, they seem to share common keywords.  Can this be coincidence?

        Cleric : hammer and tome

           Crusder: Castle keep and Hammer

         Ranger: Dual scimitar and bow. see warwizard concept art.

        Rogue: Daggers dripping with blood

           Monk: Ying and yang  and innerstability

         Summoner: Beholder maybe

      Enchanter: reminds me of the EQ enchanter icon. the mind's eye?
