So I'm looking for a tank class to play on BDO. I know that the current "tank" classes are warrior, valk and zerk.

My question is: Which one is the best on what? Meaning which one is the best for pve, 1v1 pvp, small scale pvp, and siege pvp, and why they are the best. What are the main differences between them?

Ty!

From my understanding there is no "tank" classes in BDO inherently, it depends on your AP/DP. Those 3 classes are just naturally tankier by a bit but it won't make a huge difference unless your gear is on par. Overall, it comes down to playstyle. I'd avoid valk if you want tanky, they are only good in a really skilled players hands, so if you want the most challenge, little reward, go valk. Otherwise, warrior is an easier playstyle and uses mostly (with some exceptions) their awakening weapon. I don't play Warrior but that's what I've read from others on the internet. Zerker is fairly easy, but can be a monster in a skilled players hands, their combo's can be hard to master but they have a lot of CC and more HP than other classes, I believe.

Anyway, pick a class you enjoy, try all 3 to about 30 and choose which one you find yourself playing the most.

My 2 pennies.

Humm, I don't have that much free time, so it seems that i would't be able to master valk (which looks the coolest to me). I'm gonna play warrior and zerk to see which one I enjoy the most.

Valk is is good in team fights for supporting buffs and can lay some good area CC down as well as has a unique role in node wars from what I've read switching between front lines and back lines to defend your wizitches/rangers and can also go to enemy backlines as well, although, I think there are classes more suited for that.

I wouldn't let what I said about having to master valk deter you from playing it though. If it's what you most enjoy, you will have the most enjoying grind while lvling.

the class that seems to function the best in all scales of pvp with a dp focused build seems to be zerk, partially just because they seem to have the most CC so they have a reason to go full tank. another reason would be their inherent higher hp

other class can survive doing this but they lose their purpose for the most part. for example , warriors can go pure dp stacking get like 400+ dp with tons of DR hp etc... but they'd have no kill potential because they'd be stuck with so little ap they wouldnt be a real threat, and they lack the CC and the aoe CC that zerks have to have a very large impact in the fight other than being a distraction.

Warrior is broken, Zerk is annoying, and Valk is underwhelming. All you need to know.

Mass pvp:

- Valk best offense support

- Zerker good frontliner

- War good defense support.

One vs One:

Zerker>War>>>>>>>Valk

that pasive-agressive suport-ish play style sounds really cool... definitively i'm playing a valk!

Forget about valk, it can only tank. Maybe if you are extremely skilled u can do something with it... I guess.

Between zerk and warrior:

-Warrior is better in tanking due to block.

-Zerk is better in PVE due to its aoes.

-1v1, small scale, siege... There's no difference, or rather, the difference resides in how you play the class. Most warriors block, wait for an opening, and burst the sh*t out of you. So they play deffensively. Zerkers are offensive and rely on disable (grab) the oponent and then burst it.

if we are honest to win the hard way as a zerk requires skill to win the cheesy way does not. its really that black and white as far as zerk 1v1 goes.
