Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Aelita on Fri Feb 23, 2007 10:06 am

OOC: I am laughing my ass off!! XDDDD

IC:
Zatani watched stunned as the elevator fell. She hoped that Ryu would be ok. She had a hard time remembering that this world wasn't the real world though. She gave Marouse a worried look as they listened to her screams. When she looked back down seeing Ryu back up again she let out a sigh of relief as well. "You should really check on these things first."

" I didnt think they would make the program so elaborate," Ryu said starting to climb the stairs. " I swore I even felt my head ache when I hit the ground."

Zatani climbed the stairs as well and watched Ryu with a touch of concern in her eyes. "You could actually feel it? What if that's not supposed to happen? Something bad could come."

"Maybe it's just some new censory thing they've got going. I wouldnt worry too much about it. At least I dont think there's anything to worry about."
She gave Zatani a re-assuring smile before continuing up the stairs.

"Okay just answer me one thing." Marouse said as he followed behind. "Back in the real world are you sitting in a chair? Because that would explain the pain."

Zatani thought about what he said then nodded. "Yea, I guess that makes sense enough." She said still with a shred of doubt. She never believed one thing when there was more then one choice or option. She always kept her mind open for other possabilities.

"But I didnt fall out of the chair. That's the weird thing."
Ryu looked confused, but kept going up the stairs.
"Geeze this is taking fovever. Then again, I think this thing has like a hundred floors. I wonder if there's a faster way."

Zatani looked around for a secret trap door or something then crossed her arms. "I don't know but I wish this would hurry up. If i'm not getting this excersize in the real world then I don't want to waist my time going up stairs that are completely useless." She said pouting wishing that there was an exit somewhere.

OOC:Here I found a list of the used in wikipedia . we could use these to further increase the gameplay.
Blademaster: A playable character class that uses swords. This class is probably more accurate than others. This class is used by Balmung of the Azure Sky, Orca of the Azure Sea, Bear, Mia, Rachel, and Marlo.
Heavy Axeman: A playable character class that uses gigantic axes to deal heavy damage. This class is used by Subaru, Piros, and Terajima Ryoko.
Heavy Blade: A playable character class that uses broadswords and katanas to attack enemies. This class has the highest attack power of all the classes in the The World. This class is used by Rena, Mimiru, Sanjuro, and BlackRose.
Long Arm: A playable character class that uses spears and lances, utilizing the range of their weapons in battle. This class is used by Crim, Nuke Usagimaru, Kamui, Albireo, and Gardenia.
Twin Blade: A playable character class that uses identical dual blades. This class has average attack power, and is known for their superior attack speed and travelling speed. This class is used by A-20, Shugo, Sora, Moonstone, Natsume, and Kite.
Wavemaster: A playable character class that uses staves and long-range magic rather than melee attacks. This class has the lowest attack power and players using this class should avoid close combat. This class is used by B.T., Mireille, Tsukasa, Elk, Helba, Wiseman, Kazu, Hotaru, Hokuto, and Mistral. They are the only classes that can use Level 4 Summoning Magic.
Twin Blade: A Character Class similar to the original Twin Blade in The World, though this Class may utilise two longer edged blades. This is the first of the three classes Haseo chose Twin Blade first when picking classes as an Adept Rogue. Negimaru, Alkaid, Azure Kite, Sophora, and Natsume are all Twin Blades. Twin Blades are speed-oriented and are able to deal quick, successive blows. They have more attack styles than any other class.
Edge Punisher: A character class that uses two-handed heavy weapons to fight, usually broadswords, similar to a Heavy Blade in The World. Some swords have mechanized "secondary weapons" on them, such as the chainsaw on Haseo's Centipede broadsword ( Broad Legged ). Haseo chose Edge Punisher as the second class for his Adept Rogue. This class is also used by Sakaki, Grein, Asta, Gabi, Azure Orca, and Saburo. Their attacks, while powerful, are slow.
Lord Partizan: A Character Class that utilizes various pole-arm weapons, similar to a Long Arm in The World. This class is now used by Piros the 3rd, whose weapon looks like a long golden mace, and Nala. They fight like Heavy Axemen, using attacks that are slower than other classes, but can deal the most immediate damage. Lord Partizans have lots of monster-oriented skills including Armor-Piercing and Aerial skills.
Blade Brandier: A character class that uses a one-handed sword or a dagger to fight. They are swift, agile, accurate, and similar to a Blademaster in The World. Endrance, Silabus, Bordeaux, Kaede, Antares, Ender, Wool, Azure Balmung and Cashmere are known Blade Brandiers.
Macabre Dancer: This unique character class uses a pair of sharp fans as weapons and fights with a fluid dancing motion, they are known in The World R:2 as 'Flowers of the Battlefield'. Yata, Naobi, and Hiiragi are all Macabre Dancers.
Flick Reaper: A rare Character Class that wields scythes or large axes. The stats of this class are very much like the Long Arms, for the class itself excels in speed and strength, but lessens in defense. This class is used by Zelkova, and is Haseo's third Adept Rogue class. They are designed for sweeping attacks, meant to literally "flick" enemies away before they can get within attacking range. Of course, a Steam Gunner or Lord Partizan could get at them easily.

Tribal Grappler: A Character Class that utilizes their fists, claws, feet and various wrestling-type manoeuvers to fight. It's similar to the Kickboxer class in .hack//Legend of the Twilight Bracelet. This class is used by Pi, Sirius, Tabby, and Gord. They are easiest to achieve solo Rengeki Finish attacks with.
Harvest Cleric: A Character Class that use staffs and specializes in defensive and healing magic instead of direct fighting. This class focuses on support magic. Atoli, Shino, Phyllo, and Seisaku fall under this particular class type.
Steam Gunner: A Character Class that uses a rifle with a sword-like bayonet running the length of it. This class specialises in both long-range and close-quarter fighting. Kuhn, Ovan, Taihaku, Sakisaka, and B Set utilize this class.
Shadow Warlock: A Character Class in which the character uses offensive magic, powered by a large spellbook, instead of physical attacks to defeat the opponent. Sakubo, Gaspard, Tawaraya, and Tohta are all Shadow Warlocks.
Kickboxer: A Character Class that uses fists to fight opponents. This Class is only once ever mentioned, however, Ouka was once a Kickboxer before gaining the Werewolf upgrade that came with the expansion pack for The World.
Werewolves: An upgrade of the Kickboxer class that comes with the expansion pack for The World, this class also uses fists to fight opponents. Werewolves can transform into wolves at will and have fur so they don't get cold in Icy areas. Werewolf is special class that can only be obtained by buying the expansion pack of The World. There are many requirements to become a Werewolf. It is also possible that any Kickboxer who can obtain a certain ultra-rare item can become a Werewolf. Ouka is of this character class.
Dual Gunner: A Character Class that utilises a pair of pistols with bladed extensions, they can fire at up to two enemies at a time using ammo and must reload after a certain number of shots. The blades connected to them allow PCs to fight at close range without wasting ammo. Haseo uses this Class.

.hack character classes
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from .hack Character Classes)
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about the character classes from .hack, a franchise that encompasses several video games, anime and manga. The franchise focuses on the mysterious events surrounding the mega-popular MMORPG The World. Most characters in the .hack franchise are known only by their virtual avatars within The World.

The character class chosen determines the base appearance to other players and the role that they can play during combat. Because skills and abilities are given by the items equipped, each character class can only use a specific type of weapon, though some armors can be used by multiple classes. However some character classes are chosen only as a matter of aesthetic value, reflecting the user's self image whether real or ideal.

In the beginning there are only six types of classes: Twin Blade, Heavy Blade, Blademaster, Wavemaster, Heavy Axeman, and Long Arm. In .hack//Legend of the Twilight, an expansion to The World was released, introducing the Kickboxer and Werewolf class. After a fire heavily damaged the game servers, The World was shut down for good. Code from The World was spliced together with another game in development, "King Crimson," to create The World R:2, complete with a new style, new graphics, and new character classes. However CC Corporation attests that player characters from the older version were not compatible and could not be transferred, effectively discarding over 20 million player characters. Despite this, several people from The World created new characters in R2. Examples include Piros the Third, formerly Piros, Yata, formerly Wiseman, and possibly Endrance, formerly Elk, according to an unconfirmed rumor.

[edit] The World

[edit] Primary 6 Classes
Blademaster: A playable character class that uses swords. This class is probably more accurate than others. This class is used by Balmung of the Azure Sky, Orca of the Azure Sea, Bear, Mia, Rachel, and Marlo.
Heavy Axeman: A playable character class that uses gigantic axes to deal heavy damage. This class is used by Subaru, Piros, and Terajima Ryoko.
Heavy Blade: A playable character class that uses broadswords and katanas to attack enemies. This class has the highest attack power of all the classes in the The World. This class is used by Rena, Mimiru, Sanjuro, and BlackRose.
Long Arm: A playable character class that uses spears and lances, utilizing the range of their weapons in battle. This class is used by Crim, Nuke Usagimaru, Kamui, Albireo, and Gardenia.
Twin Blade: A playable character class that uses identical dual blades. This class has average attack power, and is known for their superior attack speed and travelling speed. This class is used by A-20, Shugo, Sora, Moonstone, Natsume, and Kite.
Wavemaster: A playable character class that uses staves and long-range magic rather than melee attacks. This class has the lowest attack power and players using this class should avoid close combat. This class is used by B.T., Mireille, Tsukasa, Elk, Helba, Wiseman, Kazu, Hotaru, Hokuto, and Mistral. They are the only classes that can use Level 4 Summoning Magic.

[edit] Affiliated Terms
Game Masters: Game Master (GM) is a title used by CC Corp employees, giving them the ability to maintain events and perform administrative duties. GMs include Reki & Magi from .hack//Legend of the Twilight as well as many unnamed other references as seen in episode 2 during the Cherry Blossom Event.
Crimson Knights: Characters that fight to protect the World from illegal users. However none of them had any real administrative power. All of them work for Subaru. One of their objectives is to capture Tsukasa. They were all disbanded. (Scarlet Knights in the Japanese Version)
Cobalt Knights: A team of system administrators who hunt down Vagrant A.I. and delete them. The first known leader was Alberio. Later the group was led by Kamui. Formed from the remnants of the Crimson Knights, and possessed much more power.
Cerulean Knights: The Cerulean Knights are a non-canon group of knights that replaced the Cobalt Knights in the Legend of the Twilight anime. Rather than hunting down Vagrant AI, they were created to prevent internet terrorism within The World.
Illegal Character: A character that has been illegally edited via hacking. Helba, Mia, and Keyaki fall into this category.
NPC: Stands for non-playable characters. These are just programs that are used in shops. Most or all of their dialogue is scripted and they perform very limited functions.
Player Killer: A PK is like a serial killer who for whatever reason purposefully kills other player characters. Sora and Tri-Edge are examples.
Rare Hunters: Characters that like collecting rare items. Some may be obsessed with collecting rare items. Some own a special rare room for storing their items because it holds more than the storage in the NPCs. Mistral and Mireille both follow this ideal.
System Administrator: Players that are in charge of protecting the world. They delete any hackers, cheaters and wandering A.I. Some are also in charge of setting up events for players to play. The first known Admins were Albireo and some unnamed references in .hack//AI Buster, Lios of the game series, and Balmung and Kamui from .hack//Legend of the Twilight.
Vagrant / Wandering AI: Corrupted or illegal programs that have achieved a state of pseudo-existence within The World. They are hunted by system administrators who delete them in their debugging duties. Aura, Zefie, Morganna and Lycoris are Vagrant AI. A parallel may be drawn between them and Rampant AI.

[edit] The World Expansion Pack

[edit] Additional Classes
Kickboxer: A Character Class that uses fists to fight opponents. This Class is only once ever mentioned, however, Ouka was once a Kickboxer before gaining the Werewolf upgrade that came with the expansion pack for The World.
Werewolves: An upgrade of the Kickboxer class that comes with the expansion pack for The World, this class also uses fists to fight opponents. Werewolves can transform into wolves at will and have fur so they don't get cold in Icy areas. Werewolf is special class that can only be obtained by buying the expansion pack of The World. There are many requirements to become a Werewolf. It is also possible that any Kickboxer who can obtain a certain ultra-rare item can become a Werewolf. Ouka is of this character class.

[edit] The World R:2
This article or section contains information about an unreleased video game.
It is likely to contain information of a speculative nature, and the content may change dramatically as more information becomes available.

It seems that animal-type avatars are common in The World R:2. In the original The World there seem to be no animal-type characters except Mia, her counterpart Macha, and Ouka, and everyone appeared to be interested in Mia. The Crimson Knights even tried to hunt Macha down. But in The World R:2 there are more commonly occurring character avatars that take on the appearance of various humanoid mammals such as dogs, jaguars, racoons and lions.


[edit] Primary 10 Classes

[edit] Adept Rogue
A rarely used Character Class which utilizes multiple weapons, and various skills. Adept Rogues have the unique ability to use up to three varieties of weapons which they select while creating their character using a point allocation system. The player is given 4 points and must distribute them between the desired Classes, which vary in terms of point value:

Twin Blade: 1 Point
Edge Punisher: 1 Point
Blade Brandier: 1 Point
Tribal Grappler: 2 Points
Flick Reaper: 2 Points
Lord Partizan: 2 Points
Steam Gunner: 3 Points
Macabre Dancer: 3 Points
Harvest Cleric: 3 Points
Shadow Warlock: 3 Points

She watched as he coughed not knowing why. She gasped as he continued to though and she didn't know what to do. Zatani hurried up the stairs up to him looking at him then grabbing his arm and dragging him back down the stairs. "Here sit on the stairs. Are you ok? What happened?"
