    Question New class concept: LASHER

    I was thinking about how awesome would be a particular new kind of class: a mix between melee and range:

    the Lasher:





    Main points
    - mid range (basically 20 yard auto-attack)
    - great CC
    - can use shield
    - can tank
    - can use mid/long range spells (mainly arcane/shadow)
    - imbue whip with poisons for more powerful attacks
    - can daze enemies (50% slow + forced dismount)
    - new kind of item: Whip

    Specs

    Elegance (first pic art concept)
    - Empowers magic attacks, arcane and shadow.
    - Attacks are very powerful and mainly direct.
    - Improves general range.

    Slavemaster (second pic art concept)
    - Focuses on attack speed and quick damage.
    - Allows dual wield (like Titan's Grip) for very fast atk speed.
    - Improves poisons and various dots.

    Dominance (third pic art concept)
    - Improves CCs
    - Allows wearing of mail, can tank.

    Equip
    Basic Lasher wears cloth, but Slavemaster spec allows to wear leather, and Dominance spec allows mail!

    Race combos
    - Human: YES
    - Dwarf: NO
    - Gnome: YES
    - Night Elf: YES
    - Draenei: YES
    - Worgen: NO
    - Orc: YES
    - Troll: YES
    - Undead: YES
    - Tauren: NO
    - Blood Elf: YES
    - Goblin: YES
    - Panda: NO

    WHAT DO YOU THINK? Please consider this is a very basic concept.

    This.
    And not only does it not fit into WoW, but you'd have to create and balance an entirely new kind of weapon around solely one class. And that's never going to happen.
    And even though it's reached new heights, I rather like the restless nights. It makes me wonder, makes me think there's more to this, I'm on the brink. It's not the fear of what's beyond, it's just that I might not respond! I have an interest, almost craving, would I like to get to far in?!

    Honestly it just sounds like playing a ranged class but being more frustrated because you have to move more often

    I would like to know how do you play a ranged class lol. Paralysis style?

    They already have a lasher, it's called a succubus.

    Lashers as a playable class would not fit in WoW.

    I can imagine they would be popular in Goldshire.
