Class choice: The never ending story

7 posts in this topic

Dear fellow BDOers

firstly, I'm not a very good gamer now I'm old. Reflexes are shot, memory is shot.  That said I rolled a Wizard and am level 50. I only have +5 Gunil armour and sit about 65/55 AP/DP. Why am I at only +5? I hate the RNG factor. It just aggravates me no end so I try and avoid it.

Now I enjoy group pvp. I can't 1v1 at all. I think one of those level 1 Grass beetles could out duel me.

I hate dying, which I do fairly often on my Wizard.

So I thought of rolling a Warrior or Valk. You tend to see some pretty strong Warriors on streams, but maybe these guys roll Warriors in every game like Kungen does.

Now realising the following which of all classes in BDO would be the go?

1) I'll never have anywhere near best armour and stats.

2) Group PvP which hides my poor performance but at least I feel I'm participating.

3) I don't have lots of money and probably never will mainly as I suspect I don't maximise the meta games. I don't spend Loyalty on scrolls etc because I've never understood what the benefits are. I have 4 workers and make Beer. In short I have no commercial empire

4) I'm not guilded because guild want AP/DP. Plus I'm casual.

Anyway what are your thoughts?

Thanks.

Wizards are great at farming and clearing things, also for menial farming they dont have to really carry around pots so less weight. Warriors are more hardy than wizards, but they are melee class. You are a "tank" but you dont want to stand there and tank all the mobs, especially with your gear. So there will be dodging involved, unless you wan to spam potions like mad. Rangers have alot of mobility, you dont need some crazy reflex to play them all you need to do is practice their combo. Berserkers are also a fairly simple class to play.

Have you tried combat with a horse? Wizard with a horse is very strong. Try to buy a horse with sidestep ability so you are not confined to go back and forth  

If you have money can buy many things from the market instead of RNG yourself. 

In GvG Wizard can play a role on the back line for dps or healing and let the other to protect you.

Considering you can force to +18....

I mean, obviously it's not remotely optimal and he'd be wasting a -----ton of silver doing so, but if someone has a hatred of RNG then there's still another option.

+15 on liverto but ok, and since you can buy most pri accessories on the AH I guess you CAN play without RNG, but really?
