Since your character is the best healer, and the "Hero" is the specialization class, would mean that as mage you would have only the Mage basic class (so no offensive spells either). I could hack in something, but there are other issues like the fact that Mages don't have high defense/HP so they would die rather quickly in one vs one combat, so I would need to retest all the battles (there are some parts where you must fight alone or with Loren only, and as Mage I think would be hard to win those battles)
But in future games will surely allow more freedom. The PC customization (both appearance and class/skills) will be one of my main focus on future RPGs!
Hm you could think of a class which is no pure mage. With the amazon background I could think of a battle mage with high defense and attack. Abillitys could be enchanting of allys weapons to cause elemental damage and a small possibillity for an ailment, magic armor to either give protection or damage attacking foes, an abillity to lenghten an existing ailment or buff (ailment for enemys and buff for allys, though i don't know if it would be complicated to implement these two possibilitys within one skill, programming wise). Or a skill to temporarilly increase attack power, critical hit chance or accuracy.
I think i could actually come up with pretty much cool abillitys :D (no wonder i always loved battle mages in any game i could play them XD)
This kind of battle mage would be in fact some merge of a thief and a mage, providing ample strenght to fight alone as well as in a team. So you wouldnt have to retest all the battles. (btw i would volunteer for beta-testing without a second thought :D)
Of course you can take my blabbering as inspiration for this expansion or another expansion or a newe game... whatever is fine with me ^^. Or leave it out altogether :D
As a last word... i am so going to get the expansion and your next game(s) should there be some :D
Oh and before i forget it: Beeing a monk doesn't neccessarilly mean they have a celibacy or anything like that^^. Most times they just keep to themselves, effectivly making a relationship pretty much unlikely. No reason to absolutely give up on romance for a monk though
Now that was really everything :D
