Just wondering, not trying to bash anyone or anything, but now that I've started to meet more of the common people (sheeple or the 99%), I worry about the future of our species.

    Moo Manchu and Valencia part 2 were bad enough. I'm pretty sure KI won't do anything major any time soon, but if they listen to the 99%ers in the community, that game won't even be worth playing anymore.

    As I have stated, there aren't any descriptions of what the stats are when creating a character so people might pass it as a random origin story. Even if the stats were shown, people might regret their discussion later. If I didn't know better, I would pick (the new) Naturally Tough on my Buccaneer because I would've thought Armor/Resist played a bigger role than it did. Even with the current one, I though Born Warrior was a good option before I found out it was terrible.

    It's not a problem of not being able to calculate, but making a bad choice as early as character creation without (currently) any way of reseting.

    If this does happen, every player should be offered a free reset, since some of us chose our origins based on how they currently work in the game.

    i do agree with this, it's pretty sad when 4/5 classes choose born spooky because dodge, accuracy, damage, aren't percent based, and maybe buccaneers go with tough, but spooky is still probably a popular choice among them.
    5/5 Characters maxed
    moved away from pirates unfortunately

    I see your point but the game is still stupidly simple. I'm not saying it's a brain dead game either. It's like chess. The rules and what to do are simple, but it's still a fun battle of wits. Gear and stats don't play nearly as big of a role in win rate as people like to think. Almost everything is labeled, and much of the information that is not labelled is easy to access on online ( particularly in the patch notes released every update but other places as well. )

    I agree with this. Allowing us to change our origin with this will help out a lot. Especially to those who started in the beginning of the game with no clue how these would impact us in the future with all these changes. (I miss 50 cap...)

    1. One easy way to make origins better is by making them all % vs Flat. That way your gear and leveling improves that character. This can change the lives of classes such as witchdoctors that have low accuracy as well as dodge. This gives pirates more ability to specialize and customize a pirate.

    2.Another idea would to extend your buff to your companion. Since we are captain it would make sense that whatever advantage we have we teach it to our campanions this can be a game changer to certain companions.

    3. Add Additional Origin Bonus Stats:
    1. Naturally Tough- 5% Health,5% physical resistance, 5% Magic Resistance
    2. Born Sneak- 5% dodge, 5% accuracy, 5% Weapon damage
    3. Naturally Spooky- 5% spell power, 5% Magical damage, 5% Magic Resistance
    4. Born Warrior- 5% weapon power, 5% Health, 5% accuracy
    5. Keen eyes- 5% Accuracy, 5% critical, 5% Armor piercing


    Explanation:

    1. Naturally Tough will create a tanking class.
    2. Born sneak, need to be able to dodge, be accurate to stay hidden, and then do damage when they attack.
    3. Naturally spooky, higher spell damage, magic damage through weapons, and then resist foriegn magic attacks.
    4. Born Warrior- Higher damage with weapons, accurate to land blows, and there tough to last the fight.
    5. Keen eyes, they are accurate, they do more damage as they can spot critical spots of weakness, and because they have a good eye there more likely to pierce the armor of foes as they know where to hit.

    @Ratbeard @Bat Masterson @One-Eyed Jack
    This would make every origin have a home to each player depending on the stat the player want as well as to make everyone not just target spooky or tough.
