... which classes do you think they'd be?

(inb4 Everquest, because we should know LH was heavily influenced by it)


Akatsuki: Subtlely Rogue. Pretty cut and paste.

Crusty: Definitely an Arms Warrior!

Nyanta: Combat Rogue, although his damaging abilities are more similar to Assassination spec (DOT-based attacks).

Demikas: Windwalker Monk. Pretty obvious choice.

Rudy: Fire Mage or Destruction Warlock. Kind of lean more towards Mage.

Isuzu and Henrietta: Bards are going to be the hardest to translate over to WoW. As far as support abilities go, they're like a mix between Paladin and Druid (both classes have full stat buffs). Their weapons are more like the Hunters of old WoW, utilizing ranged and melee weaponry.

Marielle: Holy Priest.

Tohya: He's sort of an Arms Warrior and a Death Knight combined.

Minori: Since Kannagi translates to Shaman, and with her being a healer, she'd be a Restoration Shaman.

Naotsugu: Protection Warrior. Pretty easy.

Serara: Restoration Druid.

Shiroe: This was a toughie, but IMO the closest class to him would actually be a Shadow Priest. They have a good amount of DOT-based attacks that Shiroe has, as well as support abilities and buffs in battle (PW: Shield, Fortitude) However, the biggest clincher would be the Void Tendrils, which act similar to his infamous Thorn Bind Hostage. And then there's the fact that you can go Shadowform, which reminds us of Shiroe in his Villian In Glasses look

Awww... but if ya do it to EQ2, the classes are pretty much spot on (well, except for Tohya) ^_^

-----

Akatsuki: Assassin (masters of surprise attacks and inflicting serious damage)

Crusty: Berserker (turning their fury against a horde of foes while dishing out some payback)

Nyanta: Swashbuckler (dashing rogues with a flamboyant flair, dealing devastating strikes and slipping away)

Demikas: Bruiser (masters of physical combat and brutal painful bare-handed fighting)

Rudy: Wizard (they cast magic missile into the darkness... and the darkness explodes. A lot.)

Isuzu and Henrietta: Dirge and Troubador, respectively (Isuzu's tale has more sorrow than Henrietta's, so she gets to be the Dirge =P)

Marielle: Templar (she's got the buffs, the heals, and the tranquil pacifying nature down to a T)

Tohya: Tempted to say Guardian for him, but that really fits Naotsugu better... Tohya's long-recast spells are kinda like a Paladins, but he doesn't strike me as the "holy warrior" type

Minori: Mystic (masters of preventing damage to their allies while debuffing their foes)

Naotsugu: Guardian (a defensive anchor, a tank that can soak a massive amount of damage from their foes)

Serara: Fury (a druid with outstanding regenerative healing and fierce nuking capabilities)

Shiroe: Illusionist (the masters of illusion and misdirection, with a wide array of group support and utility)

-----

How about other games? Rift, Tera, Lord of the Rings, Guild Wars, Lineage, Asheron's Call, Vanguard, Blade & Soul, D&D Online, etc... it'd be neat to see how other folks see them fitting into different games ^_^

Final Fantasy XI they Break down like this::

Akatsuki - Ninja

Crusty - Warrior

Demikas - Monk

Nyanta - Tough but the closest would be either Dancer or Corsair

Rudy : Black Mage

Isuzu & Henrietta: Bard

Marielle: Red Mage

Minori - White Mage

Tohya: Samurai

Naotsugu - Paladin

Serara - is a toughie maybe a Geomancer

Shiroe - the closest FFXI equivalent would be a Scholar.

GW2:

Akatsuki - Thief

Crusty - Warrior

Demikas - Thief or Warrior

Nyanta - Thief ot Ranger

Rudy : Elementalist

Isuzu & Henrietta: Engineer or Mesmer

Marielle: Elementalist or Guardian

Minori - Guardian

Tohya: Warrior or Guardian

Naotsugu - Guardian

Serara - Ranger or Engineer

Shiroe - Mesmer


There aren't many classes in GW2 and each class has quite a bit of versatility as to what it actually can do. There also technically aren't any healing classes but Guardian, Engineer, and Elementalist can be specced to provide better support than any of the other classes.

Refined GW2 with my idea of specs;

Akatsuki: pickpocket/stealth spec Thief

Crusty: Zerzer 100B GS warrior

Nyanta: Thief S/S

Rudy: Staff elementalist (66002 or something crazy)

Isuzu: melee skirmisher ranger (46400 maybe

Marielle: Elementalist 02066 (water and arcane spec)

Minori; Guardian, world support

Tohya: Guardian, meditations

Nao: Warrior, sword/shield bunker

Serara: Spirit spec ranger. (00266, for some reason she always leaves her pet turned off)

Shiroe: Yeah mesmer, he's hard because there aren't raelly control classes in GW (as compared to EQ enchanters) Mesmer fits thematically though.

I provided build numbers for eles and rangers because they're the ones I know hte trait trees best with

I haven't played GW2 in a while (almost a year now). When I did I only played Engineer and Guardian, well and a Necro in SPvP when fear spamming was stupid OP, so I am not to sure on any of the other classes. I guess Sword and Bunker for Nao would work with the shouts, and it fits better thematically. Though there really is no one like Guardian for making sure enemies don't run away, and Nao did quite a bit of that so that's why I thought Guardian.

As far as Shiroe and the Mesmer goes, it is the closest one to Enchanter. Although technically I suppose an Engineer or a Necromancer could work as well since those two classes are able to control conditions the best and knock enemies around the best. I used to run around with my engineer in Skyhammer using bombs, flamethrower, and toolkit and just started knocking people off the map left and right.

I should've know this was gonna pop up. Come on people, just because you and your friends don't play WOW anymore doesn't mean more than 7 million people worldwide aren't

Anyways, I'll change up the original post to include other MMOs to make it more interesting. And the reason why I left out EQ (all of them) is because Log Horizon's gameplay and classes are already a direct influence, so a comparison would be mundane.

As for Tera comparisons:

Crusty = berserker

Tohya = slayer

Nyanta= warrior

Shiroe = Mystic

Minori, Marielle = priest

Lineage 1 had like 4 classes if I remember right lol. Asheron's Call was skill based.

Also the races fit sort of. Other than the humans, Nyanta would be a Kerran, Marielle a High Elf, and Shiroe and Erudite.


I did GW2 so let's do GW1 :

Akatsuki: Assassin / Ranger

Crusty: Warrior / Dervish

Nyanta: Assassin / Dervish

Demikas: Monk / Dervish

Rudy: Elementalist / Necromancer

Isuzu and Henrietta: Paragon / Mesmer

Marielle: Monk / Paragon

Tohya: Dervish / Paragon

Minori: Ritualist / Monk

Naotsugu: Warrior / Paragon

Serara: Ritualist / Ranger

Shiroe: Mesmer / Ritualist


You could have 2 Classes in GW1. A primary class and a secondary class.

I'll comment on the games I played: Asherson's Call (bit fuzzy in my memory tho) D&D online and WOW. The one thing I see similar in AC is "guild leaders are strong" now I wasn't very high level in that game but from what I heard to be very very high levels you would need to be a guild leader, kind of how in loghorizon the guild leaders. now they don't get extra exp or anything but the premise of "guild leaders are strong" DDO was the game I linked log horizon up to the most. There are extreme support type classes, as well skils that are important/strong but not really combat based, like you needed a rouge to disarm traps and stuff. As for Wow the threat system and raiding, I don't remember what raiding was like in AC at all, I only did it a few times and it was long time ago. (I think I did the firestone quest? had a bunch of jumping in it or something?) Wow I have the most knowledge of for sure, so alot of the advance things I didn't see much in AC or DDO I just compare to WoW (like raids) Iam pretty sure I only did 1 or 2 raids in AC and 1 or 2 in DDO, wow I did a whole bunch from vanilla up to cata. Vanilla WoW raids were certainly more like Log Horizon raids than the expansions.

Wow is still a super popular game comparable to games like Dota or Lol in terms of numbers. I'm not quite sure why this is a question.
