New to game (class choice help)

Hi guys,

 

I'm new to this game and need some help picking which class to play for the long term.

I enjoy acrobatic melee style combat but want to try out the professions as well.

I'm looking for a class that isn't extremely hard to play / complex skill combos but still would like to be usefull in pvp (I have found in some games without those you may not fare so well in pvp)

Can you guys suggest anything?

Warrior, hit 56 and go easy mode on people with greatsword

But pre awakening you need to do skill animations cancels and some combos for movement speed. Cant escape the combos and animation cancels in this game, just gotta learn them and accept them. But yeah warrior is easy mode for everything, grind is kinda boring though since you only use 2 skills for PVE with greatsword (gravedigger and jump slash thingy)

Blader would be another OP and easy choice since the dash is easy movement and awakening is AOE for PvP easy mode and PVE easy mode with little gear score needed. I really think blader would be better for you.

Waste of time, you really need to start on a class and accept rewards and stuff on the character you are gonna play

So he needs to get started on the closest thing to what he wants to play and not make mistakes on.

If you like acrobatic melee with simple combos then Musa or Maehwa will probably suit your style.  Fast gameplay, uses a sword and uses mostly one or two combos to be very effective.  At this stage of the game, probably Musa is the more effective class, especially when it comes to awakening.  They're both pretty similar, but generally, Musa is more AOE oriented and Maehwa is more single-target oriented, but I haven't found I feel like I lack for skills with either.  Depends on what you like.  They are, of course, split by gender.

If you would prefer a few more combos, then another very acrobatic class is Ninja or Kunoichi, but they're having a few issues at the moment with regards mostly to PvP.  I find them very strong in PvE, so depends on what you want to focus on.  They are more complex than Musa and Maehwa, but really fun to play.  Will be getting awakening second last, so you will have time to learn them before that happens.

Ranger is also acrobatic, but mainly ranged, at least until 56 when you get your awakening, which is melee based (ish).  

Professions you can do on any class, but I would quickly test out several classes before starting as you want to focus your time here.  I ended up with a few high level professions on a character I never play anymore, but am unwilling to throw them out to clear the character slot because I spent so much time levelling their professions until I've caught up with my other characters - frustrating to say the least.

Hope this is helpful :)

depends on the DP. but play with anything sub 180 ap and same DP as the ranger and see how that goes. also who has sub 180 ap? this is not an option you don't play the game if you have sub 180 ap this day and age. you are an in-active RPer

Hey welcome to black desert!

I encourage you to watch some videos and even ask a few streamers on twitch. I don't play anymore but i will say that all of the melee classes feel fun to play. Currently warriors awakening damage hits really hard without having to have extremely high gear score, and the class has great mobility. But play what you like! Don't just go for the most op class right away you can always change later!

Would have suggested Musa aka Blader. Fast paced melee class with good farming potential (one of the best awakenings), cool skills that arent super hard to combo and can switch to dual wield for a short period of time that makes u go ham on mobs.
