Deciding on your first class

9 posts in this topic

Posted

I just started playing and I am quite taken aback by the classes. I have no doubt I will learn about the game as I go but I really want to try and nail down the class I want to play before making that journey. Is there a good resource for class comparison? I have read several of the class guides on foundry but it is difficult to compare them side by side so to speak.

I appreciate any info!

I'd suggest watching some gameplay videos for the various classes, and choosing which one looks to be the best match for your desired playstyle. Don't fall into the trap of just choosing whichever class is the FotM. That changes often in MMOs with class balancing and such.

Give us a general idea of what playstyle you like and we can make recommendations. If you don't know what playstyle you like, time to make one of each and try them out :D

Most people will tell you that wizard, witch, and dk are the stronger classes right now, but most classes are playable if you take the time.

What have you played as in other games that you really enjoyed?

After watching some video's and conferring with a streamer on twitch, I decided on Tamer.  So far I am really enjoying it.  I am worried about learning combo's as I was never good at games like mortal combat but the combat in this game seems really smooth so I think I will be okay.

Im gonna be honest, I personally think tamer is one of the 2 hardest classes to play(still completely doable though). The combat system in this game is amazing though, and its a different style of "combo" than a traditional fighting game like street fighter or mortal kombat. Your decision making is more based around using certain abilities after you've already used certain other ones and stringing the skills together.

Tamer is an EXCELLENT 1v1 class, and while its mob clearing speed is average when grinding alone, your pet pulls additional mob aggro so in a party you are a very valuable asset if you learn to properly attract mobs. When you eventually get to pirates, most parties will be willing to take you in for this reason alone, which will drastically improve your grinding for exp and loot.

Good luck brother, I hope you enjoy your bdo experience. Let us know if you have any more questions!

Good choice.  I play Tamer myself and it is a lot of fun.  There are problems, but all classes have those.  In PvE we don't have many issued.  Just gotta learn to bunny defense the tough mobs.  I suggest not getting all the crazy AoE skills right off, it will help you learn how to chain moves together to kill stuff.

When you're undergeared in PvE, learning about your super armor skills is super valuable.  If I'd learned about them when I was leveling up, i would have gone through way less potions.  >.>

Flash -> Stance shift -> bolt/jolt is all you need to PvE Tamer pre-awakening. Good luck on your journey. If you have any Tamer questions hit me up in game on Aialize ^^

There are many pks in hunting ground in NA server.  I suggest to play some class can hold the spot.  You may want 1 vs 1 class with some decent pve power. 

-Tamer, Warrior.   They are strong in 1 vs 1.   Warr is one of the best class for pve and 1 vs 1.  Warr has good mobility too. 

Witch maybe is OP in pve and war.  But, Witch is the weakest in 1 vs 1. No Grapping.
