Im new to tera and i have been playing W.o.W for awhile and wanted to try something different, and the thing i love about Mmo's is pvp. I was wondering what is the best pvp class and what race suits it the most. I enjoy hard hitting attacks, mobility, and mostly melee classes. Thanks!

Haha as it has been said many times, there is no best. If there was a best then people would only play one class. It's not perfect yet but all classes are viable and have their role/purpose. Pick whatever you think is the most fun. Slayers are a little too strong to fight/easy mode to play at the moment but I think a small nerf is coming soon and they aren't impossible to beat.. so just pick whichever is the most fun for you.

He stated: "I enjoy hard hitting attacks, mobility, and mostly melee classes."

and the first response has an Elin avatar. What reply did you expect?

Actually, my response was not well documented but i can make my case :

There are 8 classes. Let's remove each class that doesn't fit the orginal poster's criterias :

Archer - Slayer - Warrior - Lancer - Sorcerer - Priest - Mystic - Berserker

1. Mostly melee class

Slayer - Warrior - Lancer - Berserker

2. Hard hitting abilities

Berserker - Slayer

3. Mobility

Slayer


This is just a deductive answer.

Regarding the race, well the smallest is the best in pvp because racials are pretty weak. But i'll concede that between Elin, castanic female, popori, and female in general the difference in size is not that big, however elin animation seem to be the ones with the longest reach. The race choice is more of a personnal preference tough.

I agree with the above poster. Based on his criteria that's the only class that fits.

But I would say to at least try out a few in the tutorial to see how they are because you might find you like a different one once you actually get in the game. The tutorial puts you at level 20 with all the skills you'd have there and gives you a nice taste of the game. It's a great way to try out the classes and make a decision.

Also races don't matter as much. As long as you're not a Baraka or an Aman you can choose any of the rest that appeal to you (this is just for Slayer class, some classes would do fine as a larger race).

slayer might be the only class that fits all the requeriments. but that is againts the initial premise of the post.
"best pvp class"

well, it happens that the best pvp class is not hard hitting nor has exactly a lot of mobility


the best pvp class is the lancer, so if the OP goes with a slayer, he will have a class that he enjoys, but wont be the best...


now, if I know something about the kind of people that makes "whats the best class" posts, they dont want to know what class is the most fun, or fits them best...they want o know what class is the BEST period.


so there, OP. lancer.

I kinda read posts into saying slayer was the best, but having just stared and leveled my slayer to level 38 I bag to differ. I am starting to regret having leveled my slayer up to this point, he's just too squishy and the mobility isint as great as one would think.

Problem with slayers vs the other classes, No Plate Armor. Emphasis, that is a big big disadvantage. The amount of mobility given to the slayer does not make up for the fact that it does not have plate armor and I had to learn this the hard way. an equaly geared/level meelee class like berzerker / warrior / lancer, I almost always lose unless the person is far less skilled then me and has never played pvp previously.

Versus sorcerers and archers at level 38, one root/stun/sleep and your down to half your life or less with equally geared. And then catching them at least at level 38, good luck. I know at some point we get Backstab, but I am not sure it will close the gap especially now that they've removed an absolutelly crucial glyph that made it much more worth while. in a 3vs3 I can almost picture this class doing well if my other players can stun/sleep/root the enemy player close enough for me to stun/dps him.

Also something really messed up, if you fight some one in a duel and you knock him down and you try to leap strike him, good luck. YOu'll find yourself leaping 15 feet ahead of him instead of to him infront of you and missing him by a big margin and making a big gap. Or if you manage to run back after you knock him down to the point where you can leap strike him, by the time you get back far enough he'll be on his feet again, gg what a joke they need to fix that skill badly for duels.

Would help if an invisibile skill was given to this class, or a way to break stun/sleep/roots at minimum.

I havnt played the other classess personally but having gone against them enough, I would roll and am thinking about rerolling a lancer now unless I want to be happy with just PvE.

@the leapstrike bug. Were you dueling in town? There is no collision between players inside safe zones, so leap strike will go through them. Outside of a safe zone, it should hit them.
