    The Explorer Class Concept 2022

    The Explorer Class Concept



    I. Introduction
    With the acknowledgment from Ion that there would be more classes in the future after the Evoker, I thought it would be interesting to theorize a class concept that many have overlooked or never considered; An Explorer class, or a class based on the ever-popular characters from the League of Explorers. The League of Explorers made their debut in Hearthstone, and have since become a mainstay in that game, and began their migration into WoW as lore characters.

    A future class?In terms of pedigree for future class implementation they're definitely missing some elements that have existed in other expansion classes. The main one being some presence in playable form. Typically that comes from a RTS or MOBA. With the death of HotS, and no real plays for WC4, that doesn't seem very likely. However, it is possible that Hearthstone takes the place of the playable requirement. The characters have appeared in several different game modes in HS, to the point where some consistency in abilities have began to emerge. Reno Jackon and his Gaitlin Wand for example.

    The other big problem is expansion of class introduction. Expansion classes tend to follow the theme of the expansion they're introduced into. The LoE don't have a clear expansion option, but options do exist. One such option could be an expansion based on Tel'Abim, a newfound Titan continent, an underground expansion, or an expansion based on Azol' Nerub. Basically, any expansion that requires exploration on Azeroth could introduce this class into the game.

    II. Overview

    The explorer is a three-spec class that can tank, heal, and perform ranged DPS. Explorers wear cloth armor. If implemented in this fashion, it would be the first cloth tank in WoW. The class should be available to all races. The specs are as follows: Artificer: The tank spec that utilizes the power of artifacts to protect allies, Relicologist: A DPS spec that utilizes the power of discovery to find relics to deal damage, and Scholar: A healing spec that uses ancient knowledge from scrolls and text to heal party members.

    The Explorer class utilizes ranged weapons (guns, crossbows, bows). Many of these attacks are powered by mana. They compete with hunters for ranged weapons.



    The Tank spec utilizes a special type of gun called a Gatling Wand. The Healing spec utilizes INT ranged weapons.

    Class Specifics

    Roles: Tank, RDPS, Healing
    Resource: Relics, Mana
    Armor: Mail
    Weapons: Guns, Crossbows, Bows, Staves, Daggers, 1h swords, 1h Axes, Wands, Fist weapons
    Primary Stats: INT, AGI
    Races: All races except Dracthyr (duh!)

    Unique Weapons

    Gatling Wands (Artificer)


    Ancient weapons of great power, these magical cannons are used by the artificer spec for dealing great power at short range (10yds) and enhancing their abilities to allow tanking. While its auto attack is ranged like other ranged weapons, the Gatling Wand's abilities are restricted to 10 yds.

    Non-Weapons

    Whips


    The Explorer is capable of utilizing a variety of whip-based abilities. Whip abilities are used for various types of damage and utility. When using a whip ability, your whip will appear at your hip.

    Tomes (Scholar)


    Tomes are used primarily by Scholars. When tomes are used, a tome will appear on the side of the character for a brief time. Different tomes will have different appearances.

    III. Discovery



    As Explorer's travel, they passively discover relics. These relics can grant Explorers increased powers and abilities. Explorers can store excess Relics for later use. You can hold a maximum of 6 relics at a time.

    Relic Abilities: Gems

    Create Emerald: Combine 3 Relics to create an Emerald. You can hold a maximum of 3 Emeralds.
    Create Ruby: Combine 3 Relics to create a Ruby. You can hold a maximum of 3 Rubies.
    Create Sapphire: Combine 3 Relics to create a Sapphire. You can hold a maximum of 3 Sapphires.
    Create Topaz: Combine 3 Relics to create a Topaz. You can hold a maximum of 3 Topaz.

    Note: When you consume a Gem, you gain a bonus to certain abilities for 15 secs. Only 1 gem can be active at a time. When you use the ability, the effect ends. Once the effect ends, you cannot create a Gem of the same type for X secs.

    The Golden Monkey



    As you use your relics to craft gems (and while your Treasure Map ability is on cooldown), you have a chance to find The Golden Monkey which immediately resets the cooldown of your Treasure Map and removes its relic cost!

    VI. Conclusion


    1. The specs are heavily based on the characters in Hearthstone.
    2. I will be editing this post over time. I won't be doing talents or anything like that.
    3. I don't own nor create any art in this post.
    4. Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoyed it.
    5. I did mention mana as a resource. It's fair to assume that such a class would be using mana alongside its other resources.
    6. I may add a general ability in the future where the class can use Hearthstone packs as abilities.

    When I saw "explorer" class, I was thinking of a class with an engaging non-combat gameplay loop. Shame.

    Though running around whipping people would be cool.

    Reno's gatling wand was the most fun I've ever had with Hearthstone, so I'm sort of onboard with this already lol

    And be careful or this will turn into another Tinker thread :S

    Nah but he did make the worst bard thread ever to try to make people lose interest in the concept in a weird attempt to make people want tinkers more (somehow).

    You think this is any different? It doesnt follow any of his own "rules" and is just a bunch of pretty pictures. There is no substance here at all. Does it offer anything new other than a convoluted resource system? No. Fit a likely expansion theme? No. Playable in other blizzard games? No.

    As usual, just drivel.

    edit: "I accidentally hit submit, please comment" is a soft cover for "tell me whats wrong with it, and ill immediately make something up that "solves" your issue and pretend that was always the plan and i just "accidentally" hit submit.

    Oh I don't doubt it, I was just assuring the person I quoted that this wasn't going to turn into a tinker thread that he was just laying the groundwork towards making people hate any other concept but tinker to make them the guaranteed next class. Not sure how he thinks that's how these things work but eh.

    More interesting than anything else I’ve seen suggested for a while. Bard, tinker and necromancer are all lame and dark ranger/warden is beyond silly.

    I don’t think I’d play it, though.

  8. #8
    Damn this is some of the most uninspired stuff I've ever seen.

    Congrats, you made a Death Knight with Hearthstone flavor. And not even the GOOD parts of Hearthstone, but the shitty Indiana Jones riff.

  9. #9
    yay finally another Teriz class thread.. Can't wait to see what's wrong this time.

    Tinker? Didn't happen, won't happen. But "ITS TRUE! ITS THE ONLY CLASS IN WARCRAFT 3 LEFT!!"
    Dragonsworn? Didn't happen, won't happen. But "IT'S TRUE! i GOT 3 THINGS RIGHT BRUH, I AM A PROPHET"
    Explorer? Exactly what @Biomega said, uninspired DK ripoff but now with a hearthstone flavour.
    Bard? Didn't happen, won't happen. But at least they finally accept it here.

    It will, the OP has a history of turning everything into Tinker. I am just awaiting the plot twist where explorer is actually Tinker

    ... "Whip Crack". 30 yards range. 30 yards range!? Are you nuts?! A whip, on average, has a 12 foot range. That is 4 yards. 4 yards! No whip that can reach 30 yards is going to be anywhere near practical!

    Not to mention: do you honestly believe Blizzard would create not one, not two, but three unique weapon types for a single class? Just like your previous "class" thread, this one really doesn't look like anything but another fake attempt at class building.

    Also pretty much this. It really shows someone who has never worked with a whip before. Yes, a bull whip for example might have a longer range, but requires noone near you otherwise you'd hit them too haha

    Last time I thought about something similar (after our discussion abour Bard from LoL ), but not as Explorer, but the class called like your spec - ARTIFICIER. It could mix concept of Bard and Tinker, but as Explorer sounds too much as a profession, like an Engineering, I think Artificier could be something that would allow Blizz to insert "less silly Tinker" and divide it more from Engineering profession as well.

    To highlight this concept more, we have already plenty of "titan" technology we could see during Hearth of Azeroth set of questlines, Draeneic technology, Zereth Mortis technology etc. It features around advanced technology, but somehow ancient and based on magic, instead of more scrappy one like Gnomes and Goblins have. This class could in fact be something like the Explorer you presented, but as classes should be oriented around combat I think that use of magic scientists, who uses high-tech-magic crafted weaponary, construct minions, mechs and tools like granades could be really cool and convince also those who don't like Tinker concept, which I even can understand.

    edit: Artificier is now also a full class in Dungeon & Dragons as concept of invertor was always pretty popular there.

    Huh, the whole class based on Indiana Jones movies that pushed a lot of worldviews and tropes that have aged horribly? How about no.

  16. #16
    Curious about the gem system. Seems counterintuitive to me that you use Relics to make Gems and get bonus effects, instead of the opposite.

    So...jewelcrafting is a big deal?

    Hey, it's a game. No biggie.

    Not to mention: do you honestly believe Blizzard would create not one, not two, but three unique weapon types for a single class? Just like your previous "class" thread, this one really doesn't look like anything but another fake attempt at class building.
    Blizzard created an entire race for a single class. I don't think creating 3 unique weapon types is a big deal once you reach that point.

    Well they are playable in Hearthstone.

    As for offering anything different, I think the whip stuff and the Gatling Wand is new territory.

    Well actually no, I really did submit this by mistake. I typically like my class threads to be complete before I submit them. Additionally even if complete, I always appreciate constructive feedback.

    That is an interesting point. I think it could be argued that gems are something identified, while relics can be anything, including gems.
