Is berserker a fit for me?

17 posts in this topic

Hello,

I discussed in a post in the main forums that due to a problem with my hands, I do better with MMO toons that are more stationary.  Lots of people suggested wizard as being a good choice in BDO.

Do you think that berserker might also be an option?  Do they have to dodge, or can they block?  Are their combos pretty simple?

I'm 99% a PvE player, very little PvP.

Thanks for any advice!

Combos are simple but you'll have to use most combos faster compared to other classes in pvp. If you only focus on pve once you get to a certain lvl all you  have do is spin to win while farming for lvl's. Its easy to play in pve and you have to click less buttons than any other class (PvE).

No sorry dude, I'd actually say Valk or Wiz. Wiz is a devastating turret that teleports. I've barely played it myself.

Valk has a block you can hunker behind with relatively few multiple button combinations in comparison to other classes. It also has ranged attacks and most PvE is using Shield throw + Celestial Spear and occasional Judgement of light, all of which only require 2 buttons. 

Giant on the other hand I've found to be the most underrated class overall. Everyone says they aren't mobile which is complete BS. It's just that you need to cancel 3-4 moves together to move fast and setup/land attacks in PvP, and be mobile in PvE.

Imo you'll find Wiz and Valk a lot easier, with Wiz killing all the things and Valk being able to kill things slower but have less pressure behind her shield.

So by turret for Wiz, you mean it sits still and blasts things?

 

What's the Giant class that I keep reading about??

Berserker=Giant. Most people on RU servers say Giant instead of Berserker.

I feel like everyone with that misconception's going to have trouble catching/fleeing regardless of class, since that's how it is for most of them.

I also have problems with my hands (only 3 fingers on my left hand work and my right hands about as much use as a chocolate fireguard) but im going to brave the beserker i think its doable changing the games default keybinds round a little.

Would playing with a gamepad help?  The control system seems like it would lend itself well to a gamepad and I think I read that the game has native support for them.

Maybe it wouldn't but figured worth mentioning.

There are spells that require long casting as a wizard, which will need to have you standing still and less movement to use. though you will still need to avoid a lot of attacks by running around.

Im actually using a logitech g13, wasd on the joy stick then g keys have shift left click and other things needed to game bound to them, it alone has allowed me to keep gaming post spinal cord injury.

I love my G13.  I used to use a Nostromo N52te for years but I ended up getting some RSI in my left thumb from holding forward on the dpad so much.  G13 stick is much easier to move and is in a better position where I don't have to hold my thumb in a hyper extended position so much.

OK, maybe I need to check into some kind of gaming mouse.  I tried a Naga, but didn't do that well with it.

Can Berserkers block?

Thanks!

They don't get a block like warriors or valks.

For strictly PvE i'd actually think this would be a better class then say Wizard. As a wizard you are squishy, you balance getting enough distance from enemies and landing combo's before they get to you, then rinse repeat. This leads to a lot of kiting/running around and only remaining stationary for a few seconds at a time.

End game berserkers don't really care too much if they take incidental strikes gathering up mobs, you face tank aoe them then spin 2 win and fill the HP bar back up as needed.

OK, that sounds like a good option.  From what I understand, PvP is pretty much inevitable at higher levels.  Are Berserkers pretty tough and relatively simple in PvP?  I don't really care if I kinda suck, I just don't want to bring down whoever is with me.

No. You literally couldn't find a worse PvP class right now. Grabs are broken. 90% of zerker PvP is landing grabs.

I have a 50 zerker. Going to have to level another character to 50 now as it will likely be months before a viable fix. I don't think any 50 zerker would recommend the class for PvP. Unless your into suffering and pain pick anything else. Warrior is actually very similar play style PvE playstyle, and has skills that work in PvP. Or go Ranger.

Spent $25 RL money on my Zerker bag slots. Wasted. Oh and you make more cash as other classes in end game. As Zerkers money burn from pots is extreme, and you are faced with a choice. Buy Weight limit increases for RL money, or take out few pots and have to return to town very frequently.
