Pearl Abyss,

 

The Male Elf(Presumed Ranger) was featured in one of your trailers more than 3 years ago. The files for the model appear to already be in game. Many fans of BDO expected to see this class released with the Kamasylvia expansion, but that appears to be unlikely with the release of the Dark Knight class. Can we expect to see the Male Ranger class in 2017, or any time afterwards?

The disparity between genders and classes is profound. There are 5 male classes to choose from, and 4 out of 5 are traditionally melee. A male ranged class(That's not 90 years old, or a reskin) is long overdue.

As much I would love this - I'm sure they said that they would never do it because they don't know how to make it different from ranger.

To that I say..... Plum/Blader, Kuno/Ninja, Witch/Wizard.

I'm sure they can think of something!

Don't forget the lethal ground and pound!

If you watch the trailer theres ALOT of things that just disappeared. Like the banditry scene which probly had a purpose, then theres the herds running... and boss running.

Heck, wtf happened in the end? what happened to that concept, the leading an army of npcs?

Also, notice theres no other scene with the male bow user.

I also found it odd that they quickly tossed out a brand new class instead of finishing their class circle that they planned.

They still need Archer, Male Tamer, Male Sorcerer and Female Giants. On top of these they now need Male DK.

Our choice is, effectively, male/female of one class or two different classes.

Two different classes is more fun for the majority of players, adds more to the game and entirely new classes act as a bigger draw for new players. Personally, I'd rather have two different classes than the witch/wiz style pairings we've had before, though something like War/Valk is different enough too!

It's worth noting the devs have said much the same, that they could have made male/female versions of each class, or instead do two different classes and that the latter adds more to the game.

They have not stated that they will add male equivalents of every class, and the male/female versions we have were something they were trying out rather than committing too. This is especially pertinent as male tamers are impossible within the lore, ditto male sorcerers, whilst male archers would be dubious. You don't see 'male elves' for good reason: What little we know suggests actual male elves wouldn't be common enough for classes or the odd dudes with tiny antlers might be male elves. It's ambiguous.

"What little we know" does not suggest anything. If the lore is not there substantially for either gender, then what is there to suggest? We just do not know yet.

 

If there was no plan to feature male elves, then how do you explain the male elf(Ranger) featured in their trailers and screenshots early on?

If it was canceled, then they should tell us it was canceled. If they plan on making it, great! If they have no plans as of yet, then this is a thread to let them know there's still interest.

  • Just another form of PvP, which would have made sense back then when the game was a lot slower, so that a wagon could outpace someone on foot, but now with T8/9 horses and everyone getting mobility left and right, the wagons would either not last long or would require too many players to kill.
    • Trade restriction may have had something to do with it as well that this was cancelled.
  • Boss running is pretty much Hunting (Khalk/Blue Whale) now. The running serves no purpose besides having to chase the enemy with a horse as they cannot attack while moving, though nowadays a lot of classes could chase them on foot as well.
    • Would also be heavily in favour of Ranger and, especially, Wizard and Witch due to their ranged abilities.
  • The last part is just a Siege, they just didn't have 100+ people to act as players (or it may have caused more lags back then with that many at one location) and therefore used NPCs.
  • As for the herd running, no idea.

I'm hoping instead for a male, dwarf ranged character with a rifle/cannon instead at this point with the Dragan content release.

They never planned to have a male tamer, sorcerer, or female giant.  BDO is a gender locked game unfortunately :/

How to ruin something that could have been fun if they didnt went for full retard "horse super stat RNG cash shop rng skip"

 

yeah at that time we were supposed to have full player trade, so trade guild... So cosmetic cash shop with no stat boost on them... and so many other nice things.

 

At that time sorc actualy looked like a woman, and not like a dude with female body

The ranger Bern outfit looked WAY better with thoses "armored" leg

So tamer was supposed to also have a pretty nice armor, but instead we have some random weird design :/

I know they aren't planning genders of each class, Like male Valk or female Warrior. 
I was using names like male tamer/male sorcerer as placeholder names for the class counterparts.
Since most classes have counterparts already wouldn't this mean they are planning to finish the rest?
It would be odd if they didn't finish what they started.

they canceled male ranger and male dark knight as them classes won't be as popular due to being male when most people prefer to play female chars, so this isen't worth the developement time.

Is there any actual proof to back up that claim though? I mean people always say that's how it is, but have numbers and data ever been collected to actually push that argument into validity? I know we got a class dispersion chart earlier this month that gave a general image of how popular what class was, but looking at classes that have counterparts males actually seemed to be the preferred choice, ninja is much more popular than kuno, there are more musa players than maehwa, and wizards and witches seem to be rather closely matched in size. Doesn't really seem like being female is the driving factor in what makes a class desirable.
