Special MMORPG Classes Ever Encountered?

As a diehard MMORPG gamer, I grow tired of the stereotypical classes in the MMORPG world. You know, every time they presents new characters, it's always the one on the list, such as, Priests, Mages, Warriors, Archers, Cavaliers, Assassins, yada yada.

So I've been thinking, are there any other new and creative classes you've seen from other MMORPGs? Melee type or Area of Effect type, whatsoever!

Re: Special MMORPG Classes Ever Encountered?

I agree that the Holy Trinity of MMORPGs is a very old concept that feels sort of stale. It has felt that way for many, many years now.

Then again, Tank/Heal/DPS just fundamentally works in terms of game and encounter design, so it's proving very hard for developers to reinvent the wheel. And yes, in terms of MMORPGs, I would equate the Trinity to the invention of the wheel.
