AVAILABILITY TO JOIN GOLDEN HAND AND THE ROYAL LORESEEKERS

The idea behind this is to give examples of skills in numbers, but numbers are just mere examples, the developper can chage anything as he wants or even accept all skills, one skill even none, even though, this is a list of skills I put my mind to work on, as they made sense for me to have them.

If you don't like any of those skills, please, inform why, and also propose a change, if it's just a new number, then, specify the number you think it will be more ballanced, just saying I don't agree with this "number" wouldnt help, if it's the way the skill works, so propose another skill that you think will be better so that it would replace the ones I thought about being attractive skills for players.

The idea of this thread is mainly for people to discuss if this is a viable suggestion for the community as a whole to make Golden Hand and Royal Loreseekers a guild that can be joined. Also for making archers a bit more robbust as a subclass, that's why I tried to think of numbers that might be "ballanced" in my opinion, and skills that would look interesting to have available for players to learn.

Have in mind that I have proposed a lot of skills, so players would need to plan builds using the skills proposed as you cannot learn everything at once.

Also, feel free to post more ideas about new skills, quests, new equipments, lore and storyline that I haven't proposed on this thread.


INTENTIONS WHY TO MAKE THEM AVAILABLE TO BE JOINED BY ALL CLASSES

My intentions are to make both The Golden Hand and the Royal Loreseekers able to be joined by the players of any class, the idea is that both guilds could offer attractive skills for players who join them, for example, mages who join the Golden Hand will not have access to Arcanist skill, even though, in order to make it a viable choice, they will be able to increase the effectiveness of mana potions, also, getting mana potions will be much cheaper, so the skill arcanist will not be missed in this situation, as a mercenary, the mage will not have access to most magic advanced skills that are offered to members of the Wizard Guild and the Royal Loreseekers, but the other skills like counter attack, mercenaryism, eye of the eagle and interpersonal communication will make up for it, also, mages, instead of summoning, they can learn how to build mechanized traps that fire arrows against enemies too if they want to.

As for Rogues, warriors or clerics that decide to become mercenaries of the Golden Hand, they can find it a viable choice when going to choose this guild rather than their main guild.

The Royal Loreseekers offer a lot of good skills for all classes to be a viable choice instead of their own guild.



THE GOLDEN HAND

The game’s description about this guild is: “A large and powerful merchant guild extended over the Kingdoms. It often employs mercenaries to protect trade routes, or organizes expeditions in search of profit.”

So, players who join this guild will become mercenaries, and so, all skills that focus on this Guild will be to Detection, Personality, Humor and Discounts in all game’s NPC merchants that are part of cities and higher mission payout.

The skills for mercenaries will be focused on defense and some for increased attack damage. Also, the mercenaries will be able to take the most of potions by increasing their effectiveness.

As for the Golden Hand, they will offer all potions to be bought in their merchants.

ADDITIONAL SKILLS FOR THE SEVENTH HOUSE

I am proposing new skills for the Seventh House because I want to make archers a bit more robust class for both warrior and rogue.

In the last update, we can receive that ability that allows us to summon a bear to help us for free. As that skill occupies the middle slot along with "extra recovery", "gossip" and "dungeoneering", why not add something similar depending on which guild you delivered the four necromantic books from the "secret of the dead" quest. Our character will receive this special ability after finishing this quest, then we will have to decide if we join one of these two guilds.

In the golden hand, this ability can be precisely in the discounts on the sale of items and the receipt of gold after the sale of unwanted equipment.

As for loreseekers, this can be a skill that passively increases our character's EXP without relying on intelligence (to be more accessible to characters that don't use it like warriors and rogues).

I understand that it could be a simplier skill that could be general, even though, the purpose of those skills that I suggested is that those new advanced skills derived from "general skills" would give out huge bonus, as being very complex skills, they deserve to be advanced skills.

Now, talking about loreseekers being extremely focused on INT, it's the fact that the guild itself is focused on knowledge, and they have mostly sorcerers and other magic users on their ranks.

The design of the skills I suggest is a completely different design of normal warriors and rogues. It's true the classes themselves dont benefit much from intellect normally, but you need to have in mind that warriors and rogues from the loreseekers are Rune users, so, basically they should focus on INT because the skill proposed allows INT to increase the damage done of rogues, warriors and clerics of the loreseekers.

Unless, it's a 2-h warrior, so yeah 1 point of strength would receive 2.5x physical damage, but, for 1h warriors, the intellect would deal more damage than strength, as strength would give 1 physical damage point while intellect would give 1.25 elemental damage for both warriors and rogues. So, in fact, warriors and rogues will benefit a lot on Int being a rune warrior or a rune rogue. It doesnt mean warriors stop getting benefit of strength or rogues getting benefit of agility, but while STR and AGI benefit the physical damage, the INT would benefit the elemental damage.

Eye of the Eagle better suit for Royal Loreseekers,
Blocking Shield, Ground Strike, Concussive Mastery - for Warriors' Guild,
Counter Attack - for Seventh House.
Golden Hand uses mercenaries, they are traders, not mercenaries. Mercenaries are already in Warriors Guild.
There are too many skills that need guild membership. For example, Warriors' Guild has only two such skills. You can get many skills by completing specific quests or having high reputation. So I think Royal 4 Loreseekers' should be avaible after carring certain Dead Book, Eye of the Eagle should be only for loresekers, and other skills can be learned after completing "Mathrisian Codex". And, of course, everybody would be able to learn Golden Hand's skills by giving them 10000 gold coins. Mercenaryism would be only for members of Golden Hand, but it should have other name, Myserliness or Haggling, for example.
