Pretty much the title. What are the good builds for PvP and PvE? What should be my focus points? etc.

Witch/wizard is very easy at the beginning - easy grinding, farming, exceptional in group pvp.. I would recommend it.

Ranger is really cool as well with his upcoming awakening.

These are the 2 "easy" ranged and id say comfortable classes you can begin with, you will level a lot fastet than the others etc.

However, watch some gameplay (maybe some node war/red battlefield videos) and choose what you enjoy watching the most.

Witch and wizard is more difficult than the previous poster said.

I partied with my friend who was a wizrd and i would let him die from all the mobs he would aggro with his spells. It was funny to watch but sad to know their survivabilty is minimal

Let's forget for a second that witches have the best heals and cc's in the game ye :D

seriously, some +7/8 gear and you will never die

Witch/Wiz is one of the top tier in PvP/PvE; they have massive AOE and damage with the best heals in the game. their only downside is that they are a bit squishier and stand still while attacking.

Most people like to start off with Witch, Wizard or Ranger.

witch/wizard don't have to be squishy. Get some +5 armor and you are good all the way to 55 because most survival is from dodging. Also learning which attacks to use. Fireball and lightning are solid, freeze ray not so much. Hit and move, hit and move. Up to mid 50s I sometimes forgot to put my armor back on and farmed wearing silver threaded robes without noticing. But you do also need enough ap to kill and enough accuracy.

The Classes are melee, ranged, or mixed

The damage types are magical, Physical, and mixed

So decide what fantasy Archetype interests you the most and play that class.

Ranger: Ranged/Physical(specialty Bows)

Sorceress: Mixed/Magical(Specialty, teleportation and short-mid range bombs)

Tamer: Melee/Magical (Specialty summoner)

Valkyrie: Melee/Mixed (Specialty Heavy Melee, minor support)

Witch/Wizard: Ranged/Magical (Specialty: High damage AoE)

Berserker: Melee/Physical (Specialty: 1v1 Control, Heavy Melee)

Warrior: Melee/Physical (Specialty, heavy Melee, balance between Berserker and Valkyrie Specialties)

Ninja/Kuno: Melee/Mixed (Specialty, High Mobility Assassin)

Musa/Maehwa: Melee/Mixed (Specialty: High mobility heavy melee)
