Hands down, who is the fastest farmer and why?

16 posts in this topic

Tamer, Ranger, or Wizard?

Wizard has high powered AOEs, but are capped by the number of mobs they can hit.

Rangers have a solid aoe, but it's diminished by the number of targets it hits. However, remains a fast class and can jump faster to packs than Wizard.

Tamer, pet that soaks, good damage aoes but not on the scale of Wizard, high mobility, and pet allows the tamer a cap of 16 mobs at once rather than just 8.

So who farms the fastest when in the best gear then?

ranger more than likely, wizard is bottlenecked by cooldowns while ranger isent. dont think tamer can pump out the dps of a ranger.

Ranger is far above anyone else and can often kill the mobs before a wizard gets a spell off if the gear levels are high enough (Top rangers at Sausans atm).

if they all have super high AP then ranger wins with the speed and range.

Even with the 8 pull limit and the damage reduction vs packs using shotgun they're still slower huh?

 

Damn, that's rough.

PRE awakening ranger, wiz

POST awakening ranger>>>> warrior/ sorc, tamer, sekerino > rest

the best thing about ranger is that he can destroy high level 62+ mobs with EASE even when underleveled, thanks to kiting. Only a witch/wizard on horse can do that also, but slower.

Melees have to farm stuff around their level and are slower in doing so, ranger daggers adds mobility, iframe and melee aoe stun to the class making it very fast and very good for farming.

Fastest farmer is the one who puts fertilizer and water on his crops.

More rangers around so they have more votes...

Its all preference skill gear and lvl

I have 150 ap tamer and im overall faster than ranger since i use less pots and have more weightlimit and dont need to walk to go empty my inventory

My killspeed might be a sec slower but that was not the question

Pull limit doesn't make the mobs immune it just makes them reset health very quickly. A ranger with enough AP can just one shot them anyway. You don't really have to worry about gathering mobs in the current top tier farm spots anyway.

Ranger is uncontested fastest with Tamer in close second.  Beyond that, I feel like Valk places very slightly ahead of wizard

Ranger is the best PvE class hands down, if you can deal with obtaining crazy weight limit for the pots.

Wizard on foot is possibly the worse class in the game for solo PvE farming 56+ mobs. It's just pain and frustration.

Wiz on mount is much better with great survivability. Immune to interrupts or knock-downs that normally cancels half your spells(resulting in 0 dps). But mounted wiz doesn't have the best dmg + cooldown issues making it much slower than farming on a ranger. But still ahead of many other classes pre-awakening of course.

Tamer is good solo, but ranger still does more dmg, ranged and king of kiting.

Ranger, but please be warned, you will want the pearl weight increase, as well as the loyalty weight increase to deal with carrying 150 hp / 400 mp pots while farming. 

I would say if a tamer has 10 AP more than a respective ranger, the farm would be very close.

with the new changes its ranger overall! now i can use shotgun without using manapots and clear all mobs really fast without having to carry 200 manapots with me for 1hour of farming. (actually i only used 10 manapots the last hour while farming manes) ^^
