Limted "Ranged" Classes?

7 posts in this topic

Posted

Hello folks!

So, for most MMOs, I usually always play some sort of ranged class as I simply enjoy it so much more than melee.  I most cases I'll pick the "ranger" type or sometimes go with a mag class.  Yet, in BDO, the only real "ranged" class available post 56 is witch/wizard, correct?  I looked into a DK but even with their awakening, they only use a few longer ranged abilities.   So am I missing something or are players like me pretty much forced into the witch/wizard with there not really being anything else available?  I currently have a 52 Ranger but considering the awakening weapon, I just use here now to farm bosses.

Witch/Wiz are mostly point blank with some midrange mixed in. Both have a sorta long ranged poke but it's not enough to kill alone. 

There is no 100% ranged class.

Kinda sad but thanks for letting me know.

with the 2nd awakening coming in the future who knows. Supposedly the 2nd awakening will focus on our initial primary weapon so at least that adds ranger back in as a ranged class. 

I do agree that this game has a serious lack of ranged classes, also I'd personally love to see a male ranger one of these days but that's a totally different problem with the game.

I think they don't do any true ranged classes because it would be way more difficult do balance it for pvp and they don't want to promote a playstyle where ranged classes can just kite their opponent as this would not fit into the current gameplay of fast paced combat where you try to dodge your opponents skills.

The DK awakening actually turns the DK into a primarily ranged class, with some melee thrown in.  May want to check out gameplay videos.

It's still a mix, and with them doing that primary weapon revamp it will be mostly melee
