They may be bringing it back, but wouldn't return. It wouldn't be the same.

wow, i didnt think this site would still be around.

with that out of the way, i would come back to swg if they put pets in there. i am playin in WOW. I miss my swg. there is nothing out of wow other than combat. i miss doing other things.

i hope swg follows thru with adding CH/BE. even if it is not how it was, it will be more than it currently is.

Beast Master/Genetic Engineer

Postby Iakimo » Mon Nov 20, 2006 8:24 pm

Some of the ideas in Helios' thread are interesting, although my feelings are tempered by the fact that it's SOE we're talking about here. My first thought when I saw this was, \"gawd, I hope they don't do another tease like they did with the Smuggler revamp.\"

Anyway, I'm not sure I like the idea of these options being Expertise trees, as opposed to a fully-realized separate profession/Expertise combo. If the Beast Master/Genetic Engineer combo ends up as expertise options available to all, my concern would be that it would run into balance issues similar to those the original Creature Handler system ran into in the old system -- namely, that having pets [i:98ff0c7346]in addition to[/i:98ff0c7346] normal combat professions would either give players a too-powerful combination, or else wind up forcing the devs to gimp either the pets or the character in the name of \"balance.\" I can almost hear the whining from the community already.

A far better option, IMHO, would be to give the game a dedicated Bio Scientist profession, with Ranger, Genetic Engineer, and Animal Wrangler expertise trees.

And elsewhere, I've seen comments from the devs that rancors will NOT be tameable! SACRILEGE!

At any rate, I do hope they come up with a better profession title than \"Beast Master.\" That one sound too much like a swords-and-sorcery fantasy title. Um... how about \"Creature Handler\"...?

And while we're at it, let's press for some sort of reintroduction of unique creature stats. Enough of this cripe where a boar wolf equals a rancor equals a gaping spider. Amen?

BTW, the thread on the SWG board is now up to a whopping 112 pages!

It would bring warm feelings to see CH back in game, but alas, as many have stated, it would be too little, too late for even me. I have lost all hope, and don't forsee myself ever returning to SWG.

It has been so long since I have visited this site. I left the game at the CU and have just returned because I missed my old friends. :) Now that I am back I have some hope that this new Beast Master thing will eventually come. May not be soon but I think it will in time. The day it does come I will be the first to reclass to it! Haha :D
