Classes That Need to be Modded

Which class should there be more mods? Since BG2 has subclasses, mention which subclass if its not your standard class. Two votes option.

The standard fighter and thief kits are pretty lame, though I suppose there are a few decent modded ones.

Well, I'd say Clerics and Barbarians, but there is no choice for Barbarian, so I chose Ranger as a second.  There are not too many mod rangers out there that I can recall.

I'd have to agree. A barbarian would be cool. I also think there could be more clerics as the forgotten realms pantheon of dieties is pretty extensive. Maybe a non-specialist mage too.
Seek for the Sword that was broken: In Imladris it dwells;There shall be counsels taken, Stronger than Morgul-Spells.There shall be shown a token That Doom is near at hand, For Isildur's Bane shall waken, And the Halfling forth shall stand.

From the tapering, beautiful head stare two eyes, crimson and moody, and from the loose sleeves of his yellow gown emerge two slender hands, also the color of bone." -"Elric of Melnibone"

Does the poll ask if we'd like to see NPCs with these classes/kits, or whether we'd like to see more kits developed for the class we voted for?

Either way, I'm still holding out for some (better) bards.

For NPCs, I could stand to see some druid kit mods for them. I can't even think of a druid NPC beyond Hublepot. And just in general, I think the druid could have numerous modifications and ideas in it's kits alone. So I voted for that one.

And I also picked bard( and in essence, the rogue/thief) if for no other reason than because the versatility of their classes allows for all manner of ideas.

He said he knew how to do it
But he still managed to screw it

A single class mage and paladins need to have more mods. There are plenty of fighter and thief mods out there.

Bards  :wub are in the lead. A limited spellcasting thief is what they basically are. What more can one wish for?

Uh... an unlimited spell-casting thief with grandmastery in one weapon?  I know I wouldn't mind having one. :D

Ooh, just realised that monks are painfully absent from every community - Iylos only spans ToB, and the other monk I've heard of never got finished.

Monks is a class I never played and probably never will. They don't really fit in the Forgotten Realms.
