    After playing SOOO many fantasy MMOs, I have yet to see a arcane melee class. Like seriously, for many years I have been saying EQ could easily make another dual class between a warrior/wizard.

    Pretty much like a ranger, make it a DPS class with some arcane/elemental weapon proc buffs and lower level wizard shield/rune/utility spells. Could certainly be a fun class to play, with the ability to change up elemental damage would help with the different types of elements the game is going to incorporate.

    See now this... This is something I would love to see. A Spellsword would be awesome! Some light nukes, damage shields, magical protection boost buffs (like the general caster AC self buff in EQ), and Rune type spells to totally negate a bit of damage. Elemental weapon enchants that can be shared with the group and climate acclimation spells. Dual wield, leather armor.....

    A class like this might rival the Ranger for my favorite class.

    Aaaaand it would allow for someone to play an evil aligned "Ranger" like hybrid light melee DPS.

    I've always loved the idea of playing a caster that uses a sword and shield and uses the magic to enhance abilities and embue the sword with effects and powers. Either that or a light armor, dual wield class with similar abilities, like the Spell Fencer from Bravely Default. The whole melee/wizard hybrid idea is so unappreciated and it makes me sad...

    I was going to say the same before i saw this post. Spell Sword would be great and has not really been done before?

    I like the idea of a counter poart of the ranger, light melee fighter with some ranged attacks and utility.

    Spellsword is actually a "specialization", for lack of a better term, in D&D 3rd edition i believe it was.

    Final Fantasy's Red Mage is pretty close, though that class leans more heavily on the magic aspect than the melee.

    It is also a type of spec in ArcheAge.

    There are plenty of presidence for the class.

    Elder scrolls online has something similar I think. I have always loved this idea so when ESO came out they sold it as being able to make any type of class you wanted so I made a melee wizard. They have since become pretty popular I think, people call them stamsorc (stamina sorcerer) now. Lots of fun to play

    Completely agree. A class that balances magic and melee. A jack of all trades would be awesome. It's got a totally different color, but ranger does kind of fill this role.
