I think he meant how unique classes are you looking for, rather then suggesting any :P

Just draw a triangle, put 'base classes' at each corner, and then fill in the spots between the base classes. Or, if you want to get fancy, use a hexagon or pentagon.

Observe:

Note that this was done in 10 - 15 minutes, so pardon some lame class connections. With more time, it could be made much better.

Also note that if you put a different class in the center, instead of warrior, you'd get different results. If I was making an ORPG, I'd actually have no class at the 'center', but make every class connect to every other class... but that would have to be described in a three dimensional way, and not easily showable on a 2D plane.

Or, remember your old grade school multiplication chart? Set up a grid like that, and "multiply" each class with each other class.

Or rather, I think he was distinguishing between classes and races. Posted Image

You could always use more modern classes like:

Emo

Gamer

Blogger

Investigative Reporter

Out of Work Teacher

Benefit Cheat

Reality TV Star



Each class could even have its own set of stats. For instance the Blogger has a followers stat that determines the strength of their “cyber bully” and “spread ugly rumour” attacks.

Truthfully....

Everything has been done.
Do anyone even use these classes?
There are generators online

I know thats what you didnt ask but there are generators online.


The key would be to change the pace of combat not for classes
But for pure roles.
Just from tropes I would......

Have a class for defense against elemental spells
Have a class for anti-healing of enemies
Have a class for critical tactics for serious damage of the enemy like airing or from the back
Have a class for a tank that shoots projectiles
Have a class for a character to wither their stats to make certain commands useable
