Aibgale is asking for us to help name the healing mage Soul in Rift! I have never heard of a developer asking for something like this, so let’s take advantage of it! You can find the post on the forums right here! And here is what she had to say:
We have a decision to make around here and we thought we would ask for your input. We have bounced around a lot of ideas of our own but decided that it would be nice to hear your ideas as well!
We have a Mage soul that we’ve been calling a Chloromancer. But somehow, that just doesn’t seem like the best name we could give it. We’d like your help in making this important decision.
First, let us tell you a little bit about what this soul is and does.
Drawing on the vital energies of plants and nature, this mage finds a balance between life and death. Only [Soul]s can focus these life energies into a devastating force, or recycle destructive magic to heal their allies.
Their every destructive spell generates healing magic, so a [Soul] can survive situations that would kill most mages, and keep their allies alive even as they annihilate the enemy.
Invaluable allies though they are, [Souls] possess neither the destructive potential of their fellow mages, nor the restorative spells of most clerics, and their ability to heal is dependent on the damage they deal in combat. A [Soul] who cannot hurt her foes cannot effectively heal her allies.
And here are a couple of screenshots of this nameless soul in action!
What do you think? Do you have any ideas for what we should call this soul?
Post your ideas here in this thread. We will pick out the best of them and list them in a poll. You as a community will vote with us to decide which name it should be. Your vote carries the same weight as a developer’s!
The name that gets the most votes will be the name of this soul when Rift: Planes of Telara is released!
Let’s hear your suggestions and then watch for the poll in the coming days so you can cast your vote!
And the screenshots:
Ok folks, go let Abi know your suggestions!
