    PvE:

    Warrior - good dps, good tank, bad support, ok healer.
    Rogue - good dps, ok tank, good support, good healer.
    Cleric - good dps, best tank, best support, best healer.
    Mage - good dps, good tank, good support, good healer.

    PvP:

    Warrior - best melee, good ranged, ok healer,
    Rogue - good melee, best ranged, good healer.
    Cleric - good melee, ok ranged, good healer.
    Mage - ok melee, good ranged, ok healer.


    All in all every calling is good, some are better then others in specific aspects.

    Its just a matter of personal preference what you want to play.

    Do note some "souls" - spec are paid for.
    Reason - You don't need to pay for expansion or anything but if you want to support Trion there is an option to buy "Storm Legion Souls" or "Dream Souls" bundles.

    Neither of the soul bundles are required for PvE/PvP progression.




    Hope it was detailed enough, seeing how you weren't specific of what you prefer to play.

    Regards

    Warrior - godlike melee, very good ranged, very good healer, average support
    Rogue - godlike melee, godlike ranged, godlike healer. very good support
    Cleric - average melee, average ranged, very good healer. very good support
    Mage - average melee, good ranged, average healer. very good support

    Be sure to check out the Newcomers' forum http://forums.riftgame.com/general-d...ons/newcomers/

    It really is a matter of playstyle. Check out some of the "preset" descriptions in the Soul Tree UI (press 'N' in-game to bring it up) to see what some of the possibilities are for each Class during Character Creation. See what appeals to you.

    You can always create a new "Purpose" (set of three souls that work together to allow you to DPS, Heal, Tank, or Support) later on, or even try out new characters with other classes.

    You can't really compare a support spec that's supposed to mimic a bard and an archon in terms of what's the best support (unless you're also counting defiler).

    Oh let me try.

    PvE:

    Warriors: best melee DPS, great ranged DPS, good tanks, poor support, decent healer (useful in raids).
    Rogues: great melee DPS, great ranged DPS, good tanks, great support, decent healer (good outside of raids).
    Clerics: great melee DPS, decent ranged DPS, good tanks, great support, great (most flexible) healers.
    Mages: worst melee DPS, best ranged DPS, good tanks, great support, best healers (utility/raw healing).

    PvP:

    Warriors: great melee, very good ranged, awful healers, decent support.
    Rogues: great melee, great ranged, great healers, great support.
    Clerics: very good melee, very good ranged, great healers, decent support.
    Mages: awful melee, best ranged, best support, awful healers.
