    NOTE: This guide is under construction. I'll finish it soon.

    ---

    Disclaimer: I just wanted to make a guide for newcomers inspired in this design from the WoWhead community. I hope you enjoy it.

    Hey there! Are you new here? You are a veteran Gaia's player but want to try a new class? Let me help you! Here is a quick quiz to help you chose your new character's class.
    Just reveal the proper spoiler for each answer and the test will guide you to your next step.
    Take into account that I'm not a professional psychologist or psychiatrist, so this quiz will be more like an orientation to your class than a binding determination of it.
    So, let's start!

    ---

    The first thing you need to know is that Gaias uses a class advance system, where you start as a basic class with core skills and after reaching lvl 25, you can do a special quest to advance your class to one of two different specializations, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
    The classes and their advanced forms are these:

    Basic Class
    Advanced Class
    Advanced Class
    [​IMG]
    Cleric
    +
    [​IMG]
    Bishop

    This game, as many others RPG have a role-orientation class system. If you don't know what it is, don't worry, just answer the next question to help us determine which kind of character would you prefer.
    In a team, you want to protect the others, heal their wounds, be the one who kills and hurts enemies, or provide utility and flexibility?

    Protect

    Mmmh... Seems like you want to be the TANK O. Tanks protect their friends and holds the aggro of the enemies. They are all pretty tough and strong.
    Tell me: do you want to use the power of your body, your mind or your spirit?

    Body

    You should chose a Squire class! [​IMG]
    Squires are ok, but I know you want to be more powerful later on. So to pick an advanced class, just tell me: Do you want to protect your allies at all cost or want to vanquish enemies to?

    Nobody shall die in my watch!

    You are the Crusader! [​IMG]
    Crusaders are the ultimate bastion of defense in Gaia's and protect their allies with their lives!

    Be an unstoppable force

    You are the Berserker! [​IMG]
    Nobody shall touch your allies when your enemies' heads lay below your blade.


    Mind

    You should chose a Mystic class! [​IMG]
    Sure, you can overwhelm all opposition with your mental powers, but I know you can do a lot more if you unlock your potential. Tell me: do you want to use your mind to go beyond the limitations of the flesh or do you want to use it to dominate your foes?

    I want to be more powerful

    You are the Hexblade! [​IMG]
    Your mental mastery let you express secrets powers that few mortals have ever experienced. No foe shall ever defeat your will.

    I want to dominate my enemies

    You are the Psion! [​IMG]
    Enemies can't do so much before your greatness. You sure are a master of mental magic and control and your mental powers have evolved beyond mortals comprehension.


    Spirit

    You are a Monk! [​IMG]
    Monks are powerful Clerics [​IMG] that abandoned their healer duties to become warriors of the light that takes their power from their inner spirit.


    Heal

    You want to be the HEALER +. Healers keep their allies alive and heals all their wounds.
    So tell me: do you want to heal your allies with the power of your faith or with the power of nature?

    Faith

    You are a Bishop! [​IMG]
    Bishops are devoted Clerics [​IMG] that ascended to a higher level of spirit and uses their powerful faith to keep all their allies safe and sound.

    Nature

    You are a Druid! [​IMG]
    Druids are Rangers [​IMG] that uses their powers, their spirits and her connection with the nature to keep all the party alive


    Kill and Hurt

    You seems to be a natural DAMAGE DEALER ->. Damage dealers are responsible to take down the bosses and to decimate the hordes of enemies. You have a plethora of tools to do damage, so first of all tell me: do you want to kill enemies in the front-line or do you want to fight them from the distance?

    I want to smell the blood of my enemies in the front-line

    I like that spirit. Battles are more exciting when you can decimate your foes just in front of your eyes. Do you want to punish them with rage, with intellect or with cunning?

    Rage and anger

    You are a Berserker! [​IMG]
    Berskerers are brave and fierce Squires [​IMG] who uses mighty weapons to destroy their enemies.

    Superior intellect and mind

    You are a Psion! [​IMG]
    Psion are mighty Mystics [​IMG] which mental powers have awakened to a next level, making them powerful forces to be reckoned.

    Cunning and stealth

    If you like cunning, you should be a Thief class! [​IMG]


    I want to kill them before they can even touch me

    Ah... nothing like the scream of your enemies from afar when you run across the battlefield without a single scratch. Tell me: do you prefer the precision of bows and arrows or the power of magic spells?

    Bows & arrows

    a

    Spells & magic

    a



    Utility and Support

    I swear you want to be the UTILITY & character of your team. It's ok, you don't want to focus in a single role and you preffer adaptability and flexibility in any situation.

    Great idea and nice implementation. 2 suggestions:
    -write a short info stating that the advanced classes are available at lvl 25 after completion of a class specific quest.
    -maybe extent the choice texts with a short description of pre-advanced classes.
    An example could be the druid: 'as a ranger early on you won't be much of a healer. In fact you have to learn the remedy spell first. Later on you will be a very mobile and useful healer though.'

    This is cool. However, I'd consider Bard, Necromancer and Psion to be utility heroes. Yeah you can gear/talent them to deal decent DPS but their power lies in their situational skills or usage of minions. Necro is weird now since it just feels like a less powerful sorcerer but I think that will change in the near future (It's already worth it to have Frost Cage/Dispel on him).

    Suggestion: Add relative scores for Tank/Heal/DPS/Utility. E.g. Crusader: 5/3/1/4, Monk: 5/3/4/3, Hexblade: 4/0/1/5. You could add justification for the scores, or not, it's just to give people a general idea of how each class does it's job - doesn't have to be overly accurate.

    Hi guys! I'm updating this guide again so I'll appreciate more suggestions.

    I'm currently trying to refactor the guide and include Jumbo and Saiko suggestions.
