Melee Characters need attention

After rolling one of each class and watching dozens of videos I have to ask. Why are they treated like the red headed step children of BDO? The ranged classes outshine the melee classes so badly that I can't see how this isn't being dealt with.

I get that tank classes shouldn't be able to do as much damage as a glass cannon class. But a Tank class should be able to absorb damage that the glass cannons are dealing a yin to their yang if you will. Instead not only can the glass cannons grind mobs 10 times faster but they can also melt a tank like cotton candy. I was having a blast with the Warrior and Berserker until I realized I was drinking potions like Johnny Manziel drinks beer to stay alive when pulling those extra mobs. If tanky classes are going to be gimped on damage output as they rightfully should be vs glass cannons please please please up our sturdiness to help balance it out. Also a caster should not be able to melt a tank is 2-3 hits. Attacking a equally leveled tank should mean, oh boy I'm going to have a long fight on my hands not, faceroll and next.

I know BDO has plenty of skilled tank players and seeing the poor hand they are dealt they deserve some kind of bonus and big BIG props for thriving while being gimped. This correction should be first order of business especially warriors.

Tbh, I'm a 200+ ap, level 58 ranger, and there's still plenty of warriors/valks/zerkers that I cannot kill, or even get close to killing. So, as of right now, it seems like the "tanks" are still incredibly viable. Perhaps that'll change when people start hitting 250+ ap, but we'll see.

warriors are hard to kill, you probably get blown up because u rush to a group of 4-5 people. even then they should get through block that quickly.

Tank classes need to be seriously buffed, not on AP but DP. Video after video backs this up. Now I can see casters, long ranged and upcoming Ninja classes objecting to this which is natural in a PVP focused game. I can't blame you there ;)  But let's not kid ourselves that there is parity between the classes.

as a KR player DP is legit just a meme doesnt matter how much DP you have you will always get melted especially with awakening damage, now saying that since your sacrificed so much AP for this DP 1. Cant tank anyone 2. cant kill anyone: so you mind as well hop in a flame tower. if you are a warrior i will tell you since i main warrior on KR stacking AP is pretty much the only choice since i run full +18 boss armor im sitting around 260 DP which is more then enough especially since i have muskan those without good accuracy cant even hit me

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit: the lvl 57 life leach skill is OP can pretty much refill half your HP in one go so you can pretty much grind with zero pots

See that's what I'm saying. Tank classes should have DP that scales properly, actual proper class armor, and lets see some real defensive/support stats. Bravo on working to overcome the flaws in warrior. Of course it can be done, but imagine if Daum/P.A. implemented what I stated how much greater your already awesome warrior would be? It seems they want melee classes to be the expert mode of BDO.
