New (But Not Real :( ) Classes
Posted June 20, 2007on:
There are a few things I wish Nintendo would do with the fire emblem series. One of the things would be adding a few new classes.
one of the classes I would like to see would be a ninja type.now I know they would seem to be too similar to assassins and rogues…but take a look at the newest (English release 👿 ) fire emblem.the only one of those two types still present in the game is an assassin…and there is only one. with that I see no reason not to merge the two into something better. what could a ninja do? well,ninja stuff! one thing that would be cool is if they were unaffected by terain,but still received the benefits from them. after all,ninja are all about terrain advantage, right? the ability to pick locks like rogues can would also work well with the ninja theme. finally I was thinking that they could perhaps throw special weapons to KO certain enemys.the weapon-probably a shuriken or something-would have to be about as rare as silver swords are in the begining of any FE.
the next class would be a wizard.I actually got this idea in Aveyn Knights last article 🙂 .I got to thinking that shamans and druids aren’t really known for their dark magic.true,in some cultures they are supposed to do dark things…but they just don’t seem like wielders of dark magic, or practitioners of the dark arts.now I myself think of shamans as wielders of dark magic…but thats because I first heard of shamans from fire emblem 😕 . anyways,wizards work fine in final fantasy,so I see no reason they would have a problem in fire emblem. There’s not really much to be said about them. they would just take the shamans place of using dark magic.ofcoarse I really have nothing against shamans using dark magic…its just an idea I got.
the next class would be the samuri.again…they might sound familiar to another unit- mainly swordmasters-however they are fairly different.swordmasters seem to focus more on their speed and presision,while samurais (atleatst some of them) seem to focus more on strength.they could wield a different type of sword…probably a katana…that other classes couldnt use. samurais usually have a lot of armor ( *caughmitzurugicaughcaugh*) so I would think they would have a fair amount of defence,and their attack would most likely be high.Also Auron is awsome so…yeah…samuris should be in FE too 😉 .
the last class I can think of would be a tactician.true,it already…sort of exists, but that’s only in blazing sword. in addition,the tactician doesn’t even fight! he (or she) is practically an NPC! anyways,the tactician could get attack and defense comparable to that of a bard…but they would have an ability comparable to ninians rings. what it would be is when they go next to a character they would have an option of uping one of the characters stats by about two until the next turn.they would probably wield a knife…though I guess a sword would work just as well.alternativly,they could cast magic.
and that about does it.im sure there are a lot more types that I could think of,but these are the only ones I can think of for the time being.
