    The Wartune Classes: Their Advantages + Popularity - Study

    I know that both questions have been asked more times then I've had showers in the winter months, but sometimes things change following updates and other events.
    The thing I'd like to ask all of you, and feel free to come me with your honest opinion, is:

    1) Which class would you consider the most popular among servers?

    2) Could you list the advantages AND disadvantages of each class?

    And just for fun, the third is:

    3) Which class (In YOUR opinion) do you think is the best and why?


    Feel free to answer any questions. If you are unsure about any, then by all means leave them be.
    I'd highly appreciate it if you could put your answer next to the numbered question, so I can clearly see which question it is you have answered.
    EXAMPLE:

    1) I think Archer is the most popular class because...

    2) The advantages of an Archer are...The disadvantages are...

    3) I think Mage's are the best class overall because...

    You don't have to use the sentence starters, but placing the number beside your answer is a clear indicator and will help me dearly when I come to examine the answers. For this particular thread, I'm only going to put TWO rule's up, and those are: PLEASE STICK TO THE TOPIC OF THE THREAD. And please only answer each question once. That is all I ask of you.

    The reason I am doing this is to see if there is a favored class among players, and if so, to see why exactly they are considered the best class. I will post my findings as soon as all results are in so you can all have a chance to see what it is I have found out. Please bare with me.

    NOTE: I DO NOT need any information concerning your In-game name, username, the server of which you play on or any character details. All I need is your opinion. Nothing more.

    Thank you.
    - EmperorWraith.

    Yes, you're right...knights block heal is amazing...getting to heal 5k life on damages 50k+....boy what a gamebreaker.


    Passed level 60 quite a while ago...on several characters...thanks though
    Haha thnx for the link but i have an archer :P.

    Again it depends on what you class as AOE..saying archers have all these is cute, but LF is the only real applicable AOE for archers...the others mentioned cant be used alot due to cooldown and rage consumption of the skill also LF gives the multi crit buff so 90% of situations an archer uses this AOE and might as well throw in the cooldown talent for LF. SS is a AOE sure...but does no damage. Im sure youd be spitting tacks if an archer spammed SS in arena or TOK, spire . Using your example of a knights heal vs 50k hits...like how many players out there doing 50 k damage per hit to a knight of same br??...your point is kinda void.

    The population of the classes tends to swing a bit. From Apr 2013 to Sept 2013 the game was very Mage heavy. Then it shifted more towards Archers for some time since they were perceived as the "strongest" because of their PvE Damage and ability to get ahead on Gold / Daru / Astrals. Now I'm seeing more and more Knights. Where maybe 1 out of 5 characters (20%) was a Knight in the high-level BGs before, now it's nearing 1 out of 3. I suspect a lot of that has to do with the foreknowledge of what Advanced Class Skills will bring the Knight, as since that's been widely known, people have been dusting off their old Knights and getting them leveled up.

    Knights - Advantage: Highest HP, Highest PDef, Innate Healing, Best Rage Regen, Best Single-Target Delphics in the game. Disadvantage: Weakest AoE. Slowest to come into its own, as L80 is needed to round out one's skills for PvP purposes.

    Archers - Advantage: Highest DPS, High HP, Innate Crit % Bonus, 100% Effective Slow. Disadvantage: Poor Defense, Relies on Critical Hits to Build Rage.

    Mage - Advantages: Most versatile, Multiple AoE Attacks, Healing, Fast CD Single-Target attack (Thunderer). Disadvantage: No HP Bonus, Poor Defense vs other classes, Awful Rage Regen, No Player-Priority Healing for PvP (Your troops steal your Resto), Delphic are inefficient except in group PvP, and even then they're not great because of the Rage Regen.

    Having played all the classes , some more than others, I'd say the Knight is the best class, but I have the most fun playing a Mage. Knight's ability to get free heals from Blocks is equal to, if not better than Sunto when you factor in how much higher their HP are and the # of attackers. A Heal Rune is significantly more effective on high-HP characters like Knights, and in the end will be superior to that of a Resto - and while Resto drains rage, using a Heal Rune gives +20 Rage to Knights. Knights are always full on Rage in a matter of 2 or 3 hits after a Delphic. Their two huge Delphics allow them greater flexibility in choice of pet, allowing them to entertain the Iris route (which I feel is best for Knights) in PvP, while using Gaia for extreme damage in PvE.

    And in looking forward, the addition of Slow to the Knights repertoire with Advanced Class Skills, as well as an AoE Debuff & Damage Attack will really put them over the top in PvE as well.

    i love being knight... i know it hard to one, but its a game... i love playing game if they so darm hard... more hard it is more fun i get... so even knight was hard to build then other class, i think creator this game soud had gift knight something good for balance againt mage n archer...
    all class had there own skill, some weakenes n some good on it...
    knight had apolo shied, arhcer had skill to loose that shield, mage dont had good def n hp, but they good attacker and can heal... so i think they all same, every class will be good in hand a great player

    I feel like you need to tier this by levels. A lot of the conflicting opinions are based on classes' particular prowess at a certain snapshot of level.

    I've noticed that from the former posts, some of you are beginning to go off topic. Only slightly though. Just thought I'd inform you of this before you carried on.

    Thank you to those that have posted with their results! Keep the results coming for you've still got time! Deadline is the end of Wednesday 7th May!

    Altho I have to admitt I hated my choice at the start, right now I am very pleased with being a knight.

    Why not? DDS can affect up to 4 targets and IS is the only actual AOE because it affects an area (1 square around the initial target) instead of a given number of targets.

    AOE is area of effect, of they effect an area then they are classified as AOE

    Knights: Wartune's Red-Headed Step Child - Decent Meatshield; Can use shield...and another shield, and not much else




    Archers have the easiest game of things by far, both in PvP and PvE...easiest to build due to singular build focus...easiest to train due to superior WB profits.

    Mages are excellent in PvP, especially in BG. Being able to clear out troops rapidly due to MATK/AoE's, and being able to keep themselves and their troops healed.

    Knights struggle a lot until you are MUCH later in the game and the passives start making a difference. Their lack of AoE's and lack of debuffs make them a hard class to excel with.
    I am guessing you haven't reached level 60 yet?
