Just for Excitement: Creep classes!
I'm trying to cover some things that creepside has always been lacking: tactical DPS and pets.
Black Numenorean: Tactical DPS. I was thinking to model this after Mordrambor, a few other bosses in Annuminas, and the Angmarim boss in SH.
Some skills from those mobs are Invoke the Eye (+15% tactical dmg, -15% attack speed), Interrogation (-inc. healing debuff), Instill Fear (-will/fate debuff). Some skills I've thought up are Mordirith's Fury (channeled skillk drains 2% of target's total morale every second for up to 10 seconds but is easily interupted), Bow Before the Eye (AOE tactical shadow attack), Winds of the North (AOE shadow dmg/slow). I think this class would be similar to WS minstrel in many ways.
Gaunt-lord: Support/pet class. Could summon either a melee wight, a wight archer, or a fell spirit as a pet. Skills could include that timed disease which starts a conj and drains power on expiration, AOE stun (another thing creeps do not have), the ability to transfer morale from his pet to himself, and summoning a limited-timed wight or spirit after defeating an enemy.
Another thing I would like to see: Nameless Overseer as a creep class! You've seen them in DN, wouldn't it be fun to play them? They could be introduced as the only creep class that uses *corruptions.* They could apply a corruption to themselves, and if it's not removed they can use Fateful Scream for an AOE disarm/silence +debuff that lasts throughout combat. I don't know a whole lot about what the Nameless in FoS, DD, and DN are capable of, but they could be a very powerful class that would require strategy and coordination to fight, both solo and in raids.
Anyways, let me know what you all think! Thanks for reading.
Edit: Considering Rohan/Isendgard will be coming soon, maybe a Half-orc class? I don't really like half-orcs or know anything about them though, so I won't try to suggest anything for that. A new Uruk class would also make sense... maybe a melee one with a big shield and sword and armor.... with DPS instead of full heals
