Do you really want to make the Soul Linker/Reaper class to be a slave linker forever?
I think Gravity made those new skills for them so that they can stand alone and just occasionally support their party mates.
I dont want a "pure slave" class. I have only criticized, that comes again boring support skills (matk,atk,ranged,flee,def,etc..)Becuase we had already support skills from Summoner. .But i didnt say nothing, to the fight skills of soul linker class. To the fighthing skills of soul linker: Its was awesome,too . Like the PvM Build or different esma builds.
But when you compare the first job classes with until 3rd classes. You will remember, that many "builds" have a feature in the next class. I could write here all similarities to all classes and above. But i think, you have me understanding, what i mean..
Howsoever, i dont want judge about the incomplete soul reaper job class. It comes finally end of the year.
