Hmm, sorry. My inner nerd broke completely loose for a while yesterday. I beat him up and gave him a wedgie and he slunk back down into the basement of my mind.

Back to lurker mode.

Enchanters are 'overpowered' yet I see a lot more solo necromancers and shamans than solo enchanters. I think enchanter is properly powered if a lot of players avoid the class because it's challenging with little margin for error.

Knowing how gamers operate, any truly overpowered class would be ubiquitous, like mages on Quarm. When the ability to press "/pet attack" makes you the most sought after class for groups, that's overpowered.

Hey sorry you weren't able to try it out yet, but there will be more open tests in the future so hopeflly you'll be able to join in on one of them. No dates set for those yet but keep an eye on the discord.

We were talking a lot about the enchanter in our last internal play test. There is concerns about charm by some internally also. We'll see where things land. We're still shuffling things around and trying to come up with good solutions for problem areas.

Feel free to continue sharing the 2 cents, we read comments. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]
As regards to charm, perhaps one solution is to have a sliding scale of mana cost relative to the health bar of the target....if target is on full health, the charm will cost more than the remaining health of the target to be successful. Buffs on mobs could be allocated a "hitpoint" value, which thus adds to the difficulty of charming - this then ensures re-charming a previously charmed and buffed mob, even at low health, adds to the cost. It would also increase the difficulty of charming a fully enemy-buffed mob from a static start (spawn) point.

Magic resist and level of target relative to the caster similarly remain in play.

Another idea would be to have charm have an ongoing mana cost. Should the caster have zero mana remaining, the charm will automatically break.

It's exactly like picking the strongest class that takes the least amount of effort. That combination is what makes it overpowered. People can talk about enchanters all they want, player behavior reveals what they actually perceive to be optimal strategies. There are very good reasons that people choose not to play enchanter, we all know this.
