No, I get a cut of what she makes. Unfortunately she spends it on cheap wine and crack before I get to slap her for the cash.

Well, bringing back mercs would make rangers feel better I guess. Outside of that, what's the point? :)

Why, to have another Melee class that can whine about feeling useless!

Errr, I mean.. a melee class that lots of people can enjoy playing just for the "fun" aspect of it!

You know.. i really think there is no reason not to bring back Sorc/monk/mercs.. mercs are useless.. monks could be made as useless as rangers very easily (probably would be considering how things are now) and sorc would be a not good enough enchanter/invoker.. so if people really want to play them why not make them available? don't see why not.. just good fun for those who really miss the old classes..
never played a berserker before but im sure those could be useless as well if you wanna throw those back in ;)

Edit: was to reword it so i mean that all old classes should be availble because they would suck now.. :)

Mercs were funny! I had a level 48 one... umm yeah they were the most useless things in the game. Their skill caps were so low, its like the backstab skill of a bard and tank skills of a level 20 ranger.

Though I'm all for putting in more rogue classes, I'm running out of races here to play! Add a clause when selecting mercs, ie. "This class is useless and is only for a challenge."

Old skewl monks with -100ac and 1d10/level quiver with the killer hit/dam gear from BS were the best class ever.

Only if a few other classes were added with the cowboy, such as; indian, cop, construction worker, seaman and biker.

Just out of curiosity, why the rabid opposition?

Arguments I've seen:

"There are already too many classes."

Are we at risk of running out of harddisk space for the mud? Mercenaries would just be another option for those hitter/tank types. Call it our "Illusionist" for the melee guys :P.

"Whats the point?"

Cause they're fun.

I could give a crap if there are an equal amount of each type of class, but seriously, caster to melee there are way more caster classes, and its not like the code isn't there. Mercenaries were cool because it was something only a few races could be and they had a unique skillset. If I had the option to play a ranger or a mercenary, i'd be a mercenary 6 days out of the week.
