Had to make an account for this question, but am I the only person more interested in the (slight) mention of a Whip Class?

Hopefully it would be a magic mercenary, like instrument was supposed to be. Need some more classes filling as "Magic" based.

Let's just call him "Whip" for now

Or along those lines, when answering about new main character classes. If anything you'd suspect it'd have been introduced with Australia, but Korea have already released Australia and several other minor patches since (including a few I haven't posted about yet; mostly FL updates though; there's also something interesting on their test server with new equipment sets specifically for Attilia, Gigas & Chironia)

In any case, it seems like speculation right now, least until some definite information comes up. Trouble with a Whip though is unless it attacks like the Battlestaff (somewhat random between Row & Column) is it'll just be a clone of some other class with a different weapon.
Kinda would be even copying the Battlestaff, but the Atlantian's and Descendants are in a league of their own.

Although, a carbon-copy might be doable if done in a creative new way. For example, bows can attack one enemy anywhere in the formation, but the whip character can differentiate itself by being a melee class that is able to do that. It's similar, but not entirely the same.

I am confused.
I've read all the posts, yet I have no clue where this "whip" has come from.

But anyway, I've always had an idea of a whip being a melee-type gun carbon copy. :3

"Whip" comes from the original source URL.
I only copied/translated the part regarding Sadko.

Atlantica Online Russia have "loosely" announced they're planning to release Sadko on May 28th.
Maybe we'll see some information come in around that time~ Right now it just says "Event: Mercenary release of Sadko
Details to be added later"

I'm highly suspicious that this mercenary may be a whip-class lol
or perhaps it's just my hope and imagination ;)

At no point in the Russian Epic does it mention Sadko using a Whip... Would be like giving Robin Hood a gun :P
Not even our developers are THAT stupid.

You'd be surprised. At no point does it say Attila was a female either. I mean, Attila was a male... if they can change the gender, what makes you think they won't change their weapons? lol

I wouldn't be surprised if this new merc would be given a whip considering how kAO just got a new whip main.

Johann Faust is also somewhat having no relation with an instrument.
Although the mercenary itself (Reva Faust) is technically his daughter fictitionally, there is no myth/legend/history regarding a daughter anywhere, so it's not impossible for the developer to create another fiction from an existing legend.
As i recall, Carmilla was also developed as staff mercenary with flying attribute. It won't be a surprise if the developer changed a mercenary's attributes during developing process... That's why i was highly suspicious. Not to mention there was a whip mentioned during the interview with community manager.
I'd be very excited to hear a whip mercenary instead of instrument, instrument mercenaries is somehow too weak to hwarang imo.
