It would be alot easier if you told the real names of the class, if that is the real names i suggest you rename it.

since its very hard to make spells that fit if you only tell its a ranged class...

Natures wrath (tank ability)
launches a bolt of nature power on a target gives a highammout of threat and steal minor life.

if the tank is a human with a shield and a sword that ability wont suit at all

there are 12 different tank classes, 12 smasher classes, 12 melee fighter classes, etc so nearly every spell you ost fits on at least one of the heroes.^^

Here are some more, won't add icons though hehe ^^

Some Random Tank Abilities:
Rock Shield - Surrounds the caster with rocks which increases armor by X for 10 sec. Enemies that attack the caster while affected by Rock Shield has a 10% chance to get stunned for 2 sec.

Leeching Vines - Caster summons magical vines which strangles a targeted enemy, leeching its life energy every second for 5 seconds. The vines also limits the targets movement, reducing both attack and move speed by 20% through the duration.

Dark Vitality - Increases the casters Strength by X for 10 seconds. In addition everytime the caster is attacked or struck by an offensive spell he/she gains a stack of Shadow Power. When the 10 seconds has passed, the caster is healed for X health for every stack of Shadow Power he gained.


Might add some more later if you think these are ok :)

That's a shitload of classes man. How many abilities are you going with per class? How much customization in skill tree investments and stuff? 60 classes with only 5 skills each might give some replay value for rerolling characters, but people will lose interest in playing a single character long-term, which defeats the purpose of an ORPG.

Anchor Swipe - Active
The Sea Monster will deal (x) damage in a (x) AOE. All units effected by the damage will be pushed back by (x).


Harden Skin - Passive
The Sea Monster will have a (x)% chance of activating harden skin. Decreasing all damage by (x)% including magic.


Tide Rip - Active
The Sea Monster throws a wave of water at an enemy dealing (x)% damage and decreasing the units chance of attacking by (x)% for (x) seconds.


(Ultimate) Fury Rage - Active
The Sea Monster will begin attacking (x)% faster with a bonus (x) damage for (x) seconds. Also during the duration of Fury Rage being activated. Harden skin will active for the same duration of Fury Rage.

For an archer since you have "ranged classes" in your heroes:

Soul Arrow - The *hero name* shoots a sharp-edged arrow, which contains the energy of his/her soul into it. Damages the targeted enemy by x. (Active)
Poisoned Arrows - The *hero name* adds poisonous substances in his/her arrow, making her attacks deal x poison damage, and x poison damage over time. Has a cooldown of x seconds.
Piercing Shot - The *hero name* uses his/her strength and accuracy, targeting the opponent's soft parts, or vital parts dealing x damage to the targeted enemy, adding a negative buff called 'Pierced' which makes the affected unit get minusx armor until this buff's effect is gone.
