*Repost* Sorc or Wizard?

26 posts in this topic

Posted

Reposted this here because pvp thread is pretty dead. Rerolling and interested in the way sorc and wiz play. Played both but can't decide. Opinions?

- better for gvg and node wars?

-better for pve?

- better for 1v1s to fight for grinding spots?

- better all around?

I'm just curious how they fare in these situations. I'm not a fotm player, but I do enjoy gvg and node wars, but would also like to be able to fight for a grinding spot when the time came.

Well it's pretty early in the Wizards awakening to state anything definitively although from videos and streams they look very strong.

 

Sorcs however excel in all the things you mentioned you were interested in. However in my case i found them more fun to play pre awakening but there is no doubt they are one of the strongest classes in the game right now and i guess there is probably an argument that could be made that they are the strongest all around class but that would be highly subjective of course.

Yeah most people are hinting me towards sorc, I'll probably level her and test it out

i think sorc is still stronger in a more well- rounded aspect... wiz/witch are just like... human nukes and not that fun to play pre-awakening and VERY SP and gear dependent... its much better post awakening but hard to say if they are going to get any nerfs and changes to their class.

- better for gvg and node wars? Key difference. Sorcs set up the big kill opportunities, Wizards follow up on the opportunities. A well placed black hole can wipe an entire guild. Violation is great for AoE knockdown in wars. Wizards nuke the groups that get CC'd by sorcs. Sorcs still have super high damage, so don't let my explanation make you think they don't.

-better for pve? Should be close.

- better for 1v1s to fight for grinding spots? Should be close. I'd think Sorc is better on its own compared to witch/wiz but it's difficult to tell at this point.

- better all around? Should be close.

thats why this is so tough, it is very close. If I played a lot then I really wouldn't care, I'd just level both up -- but leveling both to 56 will take me probably a week and a half or two. Not too bad I guess

Without XP buffs you can level both characters up to 56 in 2 days...

You must be fun at parties!  

 

Also, you're a bit of a joke as a person since you can't even make a simple decision on your own.

Two different classes. If you want an easy class that excells at everything with little effort, wiz. If you want a difficult class that pays off only when mastered, sorc. PVE wise, wiz will always be better, but PVP wise, skilled sorcs are probaby most dangerous charcters to fight against.

Both classes are not that geared dependent.

Very much so which is why you should reroll. By the time you get to level 59, we might be loved again!

 

Life is a gamble, take the plunge.

witch/wiz is extremely gear dependent pre-awakening. however, it is much better post awakening.

Related to the rest of the classes, it is quite hard yes. Ninja/Kuno are also difficult.

there is a world of difference between a mediocre sorc and a master sorc. yes, to be good at this class takes weeks if not month sitting in the arena trying to get every bit of your skill/ hidden stats/ combos/ controls figured out. but i could say the same for every class.

what about sp? Im probably going to level both but just curious.

before awakening, witch/wiz was extremely sp and gear dependent because there are so many roles you have to fill. ex. pve, pvp, large scale pvp, small scale pvp, support and so on. but now, the awakening is out, just max out chain lightning and get a good mainhand should carry you to lvl 56. then just use awakening weapon <-- which isnt very gear dependent.
