Fellow Tamers - Simple Question, are we a more offensive or defensive class?

7 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I would like to get an idea from some of the Tamer experts out there of where our strengths and weaknesses lie. Are we more of an offensive class or a defensive class. What is more of a strength for us and more of weakness? Maybe we can do both pretty well? Two things I don't want in the replies please: a) statements such as 'Lul Tamers can't do anything well, we suck at everything' and b) 'you can build the Tamer both offensively and defensively, it's upto you'. Ok, I already know these things, I don't care, I just want to know about the base Tamer and our strengths and weaknesses.

We are indisputably an offensive class.

You can make a pretty good evasive build for a Tamer though you'd have to commit to losing a fair amount of your damage output.

tamers are offensive and flippin around a lot to evade dmg. it doesn't really have defense, so don't get hit =D some ppl play it pure ap, others mix it with evasion (like me). but dp builds are rare, i think. we cannot hold our block permanently and have to iframe/superarmor anyways. so just stacking dp won't help, especially cuz dp scales differently on all classes (and kinda weak on tamer)

On large scale tamers r supporters and peelers bc all u can do is spam void and defend ur back line from intruders. Small scale pvp they r basically assassins going after the squishy back line and retreat after the job is done.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to build a tank tamer for conquest according to my experience u would be able to last a bit longer to support ur guild with ur ccs (void, ult, surging, etc) on the offensive even with high ap it would be hard to get any kills or outdmg ur teammates (warriors, mages, etc) if u r defending ur base then going full ap accessories with rosar/kutum should be good enough maybe even nouver. 

If I can I try to stay away from large groups bc the lag (lag kills tamers more than any other class) and go for the ones on the sides when attacking or on the defensive, go for the wanna be heroes that try to push too much (ez kills) 

So yeah an offensive class for sure. We r meant to be assassins but we lack a bit of dmg or protection (longer iframes/SA) to be decent assassin class which means usually its better to place some other class on those positions (thats why guilds rather recruit any other class but tamers)

Theoretically we´re an offensive class. 

Equipment wise i see us more as a hybrid/defensive class. 

You can do a lot more with your tamer with higher DP, your damage is not enough to burst down people with very high dp so you need to engage, re-engange and peel anyways. 

I´m currently at 190 AP and 305 DP and even in battleground that plays pretty good.
