    Question The, "What classes are best for X in the game" thread

    Okay i'll ask for a little advice. This is of course personal, and subjective data but my curiosity about the game is substantial right now.

    If i were to select the BEST of these types of classes. Which would be the best? Also, are they just a little better or substantially better or perhaps the only option?

    Tank:
    Ranged DPS:
    Melee DPS:
    Full Healer:
    Support Healer:
    Buffer:
    Debuffer:
    Utility:

    Sorry to ask you guys to do homework, but i urge you to satisfy my curiosity! Lol.

    Would like it if people stop making these threads.

    There is no best, there never will be a best, it's all opinion-based, so stop asking.

    Now, if you were asking for our favorite one's for each of those roles.....completely different.

    you forgot to state pvp? pve? solo? grouped?

    classes are situational by themselves. which is why we are given 3 to fill out, so we can round out our overall character to not be soo specific it hinders our gameplay.

    agree. there is no best one class fits all solution.
    like for ranged dps. rangers are good for soling, marks are good for groups single target and limited aoe, sab have more aoe to them. it just doesnt work when you try to say "whos best?"

    Sorry i didn't know people made threads like this before. =(

    The reason i asked is because for example if i wanted to make a tank class and one that's actually good at it, i didnt want to start out with something that's subpar and when i'm LFG they won't take me because i'm not the right type of tank for the job.

    I'm sorry i was refering to PvE exclusively. Probably group play.

    all of the tanks seem to be fine for group play. there are a number of warriors souls, the riftstalker rogue soul and the justicar cleric soul to choose from.

    Is there any buffing in the game? Any necessary debuffing like in EQ1 you pretty much had to have a class that could slow the mobs attack speed ect ect?

    Well in that case be creative and come up with your own builds, people won't not accept you because your a certain soul as long as the soul is meant to do what your doing and you built it right it should work just fine.

    I'll list them :
    Tanks : Paladin, Void knight, Reaver, Riftstalker, Justicar, Warlord are the main ones.

    (This is tricky because there are melee's with ranged abilities, I'll list all I can think of)
    Ranged DPS: Marksman, ranger, sabateur, chloromancer, bard, dominator, pyromancer, necromancer, warlock, archon, elementalist, stormcaller, cabalist, inquisitor, sentinel, warden.

    Melee DPS:Nightblade, assassin, riftstalker, bladedancer, paragon, champion, riftblade, reaver, beastmaster, warlord, Justicar, druid, shaman.

    Healers: Sentinel, Purifier, bard, chloromancer, druid, justicar, Warden.

    Buffer: Everyone, just about, Warlord's seem to have the most along with bard's.

    Debuffer: Everyone just about, archon's and dominator's are the most centered around it though.
    Utilityominator has the most, but almost all have CC.
