Turn Loose The Mermaids

Family Name: Nissa

Region (NA/EU): NA

Suggestions/Comments: With addition of Maretta I'm really hoping Corsair will be looked at. Specifically her 'MERMAID FORM'! Especially after reading the discription: "Sightings of Hollow Maretta, the SIREN of the ocean, have been reported from the vast Margoria sea. Being a mythical creature akin to MERMAIDS of lore, encountering Maretta is quite a feat in itself, but upon trespassing her waters, adverturers will hear the seductive melodies of her song fill up a large area." Corsair has stronger ties to this more than ANY class, being both MERMAID and PIRATE! It is my hope that you change the Corsair 'Mermaid Form' to match that of an actual mermaid (tail/fins.) Allow us to CUSTOMIZE our 'Mermaid Form' in character creation, which would be preferable, or at the very least have it be a swimsuit that's Corsair exclusive. You could have mutliple types for various tail fin options. Plus they'd be dyeable. The Corsair should transform immediately upon entering water and remain in that form INDEFINITELY whilst in water. Similar to how the swimsuits work. They should also have UNLIMITED breath/stamina in the water seeing as how they're MERMAIDS! Their 'Sea Lungs' passive should be changed as such. If not unlimited stamina, have it regenerate faster. Obviously only in the water. Or have it work similar to how it works on land. Only use stamina whilst 'sprinting' or in this case 'fast swimming.' While the stamina regenerates they swim at a normal speed similar to their jogging speed on land. On land you can jog and sprint from 'point A' to 'point B' without trouble. For example; if you run out of stamina on land you're not reduced to a walk! They simply jog while their stamina rengenerates. Obviously mounts make it quicker, in this case it would be ships. Corsair should work similarly in water as she does on land if not a little better. Have her swim at a normal speed or pace while her stamina regenerates. Being a mermaid she should not get stranded in the ocean! If you can give Hashashin unlimited stamina in the desert surely you can do the same for Corsair in water. Please consider this Pearl Abyss, you'd be the FIRST and ONLY mmorpg to have a playable honest-to-goodness mermaid! It would prove you're willing and able to think outside-the-box. It would open up possibilities for the future. The lore is already there! Turn our Corsair into the TRUE mythical creature of legends!

Bonus/Alternate Suggestion: If Corsair's Mermaid Form cannot be altered, then please release a 'proper' Mermaid Class! Or possibly a Siren Class to serve as an antithesis to Corsair. Like Drakania/Guardian or Woosa/Maegu. With a customizable form that's automatic and permanent in the water with unlimited breath/stamina (water only). It could work similarly to a bard. Have a harp for a weapon or a Conch Shell, music based skills with water effects. That can heal & buff allies as well as damage enemies.

Turn loose the mermaids!

From this: (Aquawoman)

To Something More Like This: (Actual Mermaid)

As you can see the in the video below, the 'Transformation' does not last long and you have a breath/stamina meter. Which makes ZERO sense as she's a MERMAID! There is nothing more immersion breaking than being stranded in the ocean on a supposed 'MERMAID Class!' 

My own video and screenshots demonstrating Corsair's Transformation.

I just wish Pearl Abyss would take her seriously and redo her. She feels more akin to a small child playing 'make-believe' than an actual pirate or mermaid. She has a crew of otters, 'The Slippery Skallywags' which no one has even heard of. She's a supposed captain with no sailing experience. The daughter of the leader of the 'Crow Merchants Guild' who knows nothing of bartering/trading. A mermaid who can get stranded in the ocean. She feels like a bad joke rather than a real class. They could have really done something cool with her. A mermaid masquerading as a pirate hunting those who would hunt her. 'Turning the Tides' as it were.

I mean come on! If you're going to come out with a Siren then please fix the Corsair! Your ONLY mermaid! 2024 and we still don't have a proper 'mermaid form' for Corsair. Come on PA!

Please Finally Give Corsair A Tail Like This ^

Notice how even her costume pieces have Mermaid decorations. (Nereid and Desperada). Yet her form looks nothing like those...

Desperada Shoes

Is it really necessary to keep posting this same topic?

Sorry, I had my other one removed because it was too long and complicated. I wanted to keep it short, direct, and to the point. Using my own screenshots and video as examples. Those are the only pics I'll have as to not clutter it overmuch. Rest assured this shall be my final and ONLY thread on this topic. =)

This really in generally a reoccuring sentiment and I don't mean that to discourage the post, I mean the devs really should hurry up and do something with the feedback already.

Yeah you'd think. I see so many comments (forum threads, reddit, and youtube) stating how this class was what brought them to the game because of the mermaid bit. Then when they actually played one, well it was a bit dissapointing to say the least. I was one of them, I was on a break from the game and came back because I heard about a mermaid class being released. I've always loved pirates and mermaids so I was very excited. Then I played her and she was not at all what I was expecting. I've only recently given in and leveled one. She feels unfinished. She's not quite a pirate, yet she's not quite a mermaid either. She's in a weird place. She's supposed to be both yet she feels like neither. She feels akin to a small child playing 'make-believe.' If that makes sense. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy her otherwise I wouldn't be so vocal about wanting her changed. It's just I would enjoy her far more if she truely felt like what is stated in her lore. A mermaid (possibly the last) hiding out as a pirate with her loyal crew. If they did this, it could renew people's interest in the game (such as those who like myself who were rather disappointed with Corsair) and possibly garner new players and bring them revenue. I mean what other mmorpg has a legit playable mermaid?

and on top of that, continuously editing every couple hours to bump your post..

I'm OCD when I notice a typo I fix it. On top of that, the way this damn thing does, it pushes two words together. I fix that one, it screws up another sentence. Plus I recently added to it, just some thoughts on the current situation of the class and how I feel about it. You don't have to be an ass. If you don't like it, scroll past and ignore. Have a nice day.
