Class to choose (for friend, not a FOTM).

22 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Friend of mine wants to try BDO and asked me what class should he try.

Honestly I am not fluent in many classes, hence I would like to ask here. AsI do play Witch and it is not bad - it is strong - no doubt, but I miss flow/combos/incombat movement other classes offer - and is not a melee friend likes).

So what would you suggest for a guy who will be new in the game, but has vast experience with MMORPG games. He wants:

- Melee class

- Not a FOTM, not a bottom of the foodchain

- does not like resource management

- likes complex combos + CC + AoE + mobility

 

TY :)

Maewha. I hear it's like DDR for your fingers when you get it to like +50. Pre 50 is pretty boring in my opinion, but after that is supposed to be pretty nice.

Sorc or ninja is what fits your description. Zerker too but less skill dependant.

Soul Calibur or Mortal Combat is my guess ?:D

Zerker actually has a decently high skillcap, just a low skill floor with grab chains

 

a lot of people dislike the class because of how it looks but if you take the time to actually learn the class it's great 1v1s and is useful in group fights

If your friend is new id say wait for Striker to come out.  If he wants to play now, Ninja or Kunoichi.  They not flavor of the month classes, they're pretty powerful if you gear them right and know their moves.

I can't say for the other classes but awakened sorc seems to fit everything he wants really well.

Yeah, Sorc or Ninja really seems like what he wants to do.

I'd throw Tamer out here, but if he's only got 2 days to play and he wants to be competitive, forget it.  :)

Agreed.  You can't learn Tamer in 2 Days.  Try Maewha.

They should make a tournament for Maewha, Tamer and Kunoichi.  The ultimate test, winner take all, only survival of the fittest!  Not so they can fight each other, but so we can see who can gather the most sharps/hards in an hour.  We should all be pretty good at it by now. :D

I kid, but i'm also crying a little.

Wizard is definitely the smartest option, you may not like wizard playstyle, but in the end it's the smartest pick since it will enable him to grind/gear/level faster than any of the classes you picked.

 

And when he doesn't like Wizard he can always switch to the other inferior classes.  Also a nice vid for new players below.
