To those of you that have played on the Korean server, I'd like to know if you felt any particular classes were doing better in 1 vs 1 PvP and/or in Mass PvP and why.
Watching videos I've sort of been given the impression that the priest is dominant in 1 vs 1; mainly because of heal skills and sleeps.
Berserkers with their wide AoE's seemed rather dominant to me in mass PvP.
Last, is there any class you (Korean Players) would not recommend at all for PvP?
Honestly, every class in this game can be good if the person plays it the way the class is intended. That said, some classes you do have to work harder at to be good with. Slayers are very solid in pvp...its my belief that melee toons are better than ranged toons in this game...but I didn't get into that much pvp on the korean server. I will say your more sluggish toons have difficult keeping up, lancer/zerker.
Classes just have certain roles; as a lancer you will not be a wrecking force in 1v1 however you can dominate group pvp, not because of your damage but your zone tanking. Every class has there role, it all comes down to skill, yes some might need less skill then others but everything is fairly equal.
yaaay! finally a skill based game!
I'm torn. Part of me wants to hear that a class I want to play is strong in PvP, but another side of me hopes that all classes are really so balanced that it doesn't matter, lol!
I have watched a lot of pvp videos. The lancer vid that I saw the lancer beat an archer pretty easily. All he did was block block, chain grab, shield stun, attack, and repeat. I also so a lancer fight a slayer or zerker he lost however it was a very close fight. So I am guessing it is more based on the skill level of the player and how he uses his skills and timing rather than the class it self.
Only time will tell!
edit: ZERKER has a move that prevents use of defensive abilities... DAMN YOU EDIT BUTTON!
Lancer should win vs ranged classes
Melee classes rooockk Lancers
Archer and sorc is really a fight against who is better
Priests are damn near unkillable same with mystics unless you get a great knockdown and crits on them.
