My personal hope for a character Is A New type of Wizard in the game, Warhammer fantasy has such an beautiful assortment of spell casters that are so different and unique that I think they would be a blast to play! Fatshark has shown us with Sienna that they absolutely can make it work, Granted a Fire Mage is about the easiest thing you could attempt but still!
Id love to see them do a more niche type of spell caster, One that maybe serves as more of a support role or whose magic is more subtle than -Here comes a MF fireball!!!
My current dream is that They would add A Lore of Metal Wizard! I feel like it could really work on a mechanical level and would be a blast to play!
The Metal Wizard would be able to shoot small metal shards like a mini gun out of his staff/hands or channel it to fire a large hunk of metal like a cannonball!
Being in Complete command of the Metal around him the armour and weapons of allies and enemies are his to command, With the Spell Plague of Rust He could render enemy armour practically useless!
Or he could use the spell Transmutation of Lead to briefly transmute his enemies weapons and armour into lead, Slowing them down to a snailspace while they try and struggle to fight you in there overburdened state!
Glittering robe Is a potential other Special ability, you Conjure up a extremely gaudy (but effective) cloak of shimmering scale armour to protect you allies, Buffing there armour values for a time.
These are only a few examples of Spells that are in the Metal Wizards arsenal That I personally felt could translate very well into V2. There are so many other cool spells I recommend if you are interested to check out the Warhammer fantasy Wiki https://warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Chamon It is a good source for what different spells and abillites you could expect a new character might have!
But lets not forget that Wizards from the Gold order are Also Alchemists! So he will definitely have some talents that might affect the healing Draughts and other Potions, Maybe that Special enemies has a chance to drop potions when he kills them?
His special weapon could be that he throws vails of his vile concoctions and brews at his enemes! Kinda like the Globader, and the different Concoctions could have different effects, One is a small Molotov, Another is acidic and yet another freezes the enemy on contact! You could fiddle around with the concept alot I belive! Other than that He will probably use a staff for ranged and standard melee weapon for close combat! He might use Gun powder weapons since Wizards from the Gold Collage has been known to have a very close relationship with the Engineers of Nuln.
His or hers character would be of a Rich, Stuck up snob but with a great intellect! He looks down upon those he feels are uneducated or stupid and flaunts his great wealth and prestige constantly! Even tho no one cares a bit about his shenanigans…
Sorry of rambling but I really do feel like a Metal Wizard Would be an excellent addition to the Ubersreik 5!
