There are none today
Caster weapon slots used today.
- 2hd staff
- offhand catalyst
The offhand catalyst allows for hybrid caster builds.. but is more limiting then the ranger/melee hybrid builds. Agree caster hybrid needs some redesign love.
I personally like the idea of a wand. It sounds like the correct solution for caster hybrid builds
- wand/melee (sword, dagger, etc) builds willpower at range, and rage in melee.
- wand/gun ...this wouldn't work. conflicting builders with ranged attacks.
Note: ranged/shield hybird = shotgun effect. which is basicly a short ranged cleave, like a sword. But you can use gun abilities. Perhaps wand/shield should do the same but allow for some spell abilities. like having a Lightsaber mageblade. Sword effect that builds willpower instead of rage.
Of course this addition of a wand would make the current catalyst design near obsolete. Hmmm..maybe make the catalyst come with a random mage version of a shield. example: 10% chance to reflect 30% damage from element attacks/spells...or some other cool effect that will make people want to equip it instead of a wand. ooooh, maybe cost reduction on rage/willpower abilities.
