Default EverQuest is one of the only MMOs that ever had hybrid classes

It triggers me when I'm playing WoW and I explain to people that a hybrid is a combination of two characters, and these zoomers are like "acshually, it just means they can heal and dps or heal and tank"

it's like by this definition a rogue is a hybrid because they can also heal in WoW and are tanky AF

the true meaning of hybrid class originated in eq because they literally took two classes and combined them to make a single class (paladin, sk, ranger etc.)

that was what hybrid meant

it didnt mean you can heal and dps (again, this would make shamans on eq also hybrids lol)

but yeah, it triggers me to have a 19 year old zoomer be a know-it-all about shit they dont even understand the original concept of

i think rift kind of also had hybrids too because you literally could combine whatever 2 class combinations you wanted

WoW Paladins don't get the same exact spells as Priests do.

So yeah, I see what you're saying.

Class Hybrids aren't Role Hybrids.

well not just that (but that is the main point im making)

like on WoW if you invite a retribution paladin, he cant really tank or heal, so hes just a warrior basically

on eq that would be unheard of to be like well we got this paladin in our group but he cant tank or heal, he can only swing his sword

idk if that makes sense, but like if i add a dps druid to my group and expect since hes a hybrid that we'll also have heals... yeah thats going to be a dangerous and unrealistic assumption to make because "hybrids" on WoW arent really hybrids who join a group and heal, tank, or dps

they pretty much can just do one of those roles like the rest of the classes

Hybrid classes are dumb and just a leftover from D&D, the difference is in D&D your multiclass is actually useful
